Top tips for home colouring 2020
Now as we are now aware that it's going to be another 5 weeks till we can get back in the chair. Know Your Hair has your back with the top tips in home colouring. The thing is it goes against all that I believe in as a professional hairdresser. However, with the current situation, we are not able to stick with the rules.
So here we go I no my blog might be too late for you clients that have already taken the home colouring leap but I really thought as a nation we would be busy sorting out bowl cuts and some crazy colouring disaster believe me I have heard a few. The best advice I can give at this stage is to go and contact your hairdresser and get your record card if this is possible what you want is the shade you normally have.
The second trick is to stop googling crazy hair colours and creating a dramatic new change believe me the number of times I heard I just bought a base 5 and it nearly black when the client was blonde, to begin with.
So you got your record card so whats next. So, for example, your colour record says your shade is an 8.3 you properly think what the hell is that. Don’t panic I have found the best way to make this easy to understand. So you online or your in the supermarket and you pick up what you think is the right colour if I was in the supermarket with you I would stop you immediately before you even start shopping is your colour semi or permeant this is so important.
Here is a quick test go to your mirror and take a good look at your roots.
Now to understand this simply if your dark with grey then this is very simple for you. In your case, your colour record might say for example 5.31 you no that if you bye a 5.31 in the supermarket it's going to be very dark I would go a shade lighter always as many companies add more pigment to there colours so it lasts longer.
Now if you're looking in the mirror and see blonde hair but dark root this may be a little bit harder as this will involve lifting your hair to the shade that blends your roots. However there are a couple of options you can try and blend with some makeshift highlights to blend, or its a blonde box dye that might go a bit warm at the roots in my own opinion I would leave it and wait for a professional but of course, this is up to you.
A great tip for blondes with dark root always grab a shade lighter and always stay with ash tones this is your ash blondes normal indicated with a (1) in many colour charts.
