Over the past three years I have been highlighting, and this summer I wanted to change. I used to dye my hair in almost all the colors of the rainbow, except that I had never been a brunette. And now stopped at a shade of Cool beige blonde.
Many are afraid to dye their hair at home, because the result is not always happy. But I already have experience in these matters, the paint never failed me, and the shade is exactly the one that I had in mind. For those who have never tried to experiment with their hair, here are instructions for coloring.
I use Garnier Color Naturals paint. It is inexpensive, and the hair after it does not become like straw. Mixture for dyeing will need to do yourself, the kit includes milk developer and cream paint. Also in the package you can find cream-care – this is something like a balm that is applied to the hair after dyeing.
I would not advise to choose too radical shades, although once it was even red. If, however, the selected color is very different from your original, then it is better to contact the hairdresser, because It is hard to dye your hair from behind and you can leave undyed strands that will stand out.
In addition to packing with paint, you will need gloves (included in the kit), a brush for painting and a container for the mixture. Bowl should not be metal. You can also prepare a towel to cover up clothes. But I feel uncomfortable in a towel and I just put on a worse shirt. But in general, the paint does not flow and does not drip anywhere.
Before applying the paint, hair should not be washed for 1-2 days. It is also recommended to test for an allergic reaction, which I always ignore. You should put a drop of cream paint on the area behind the ear and wait 48 hours. If this effect has not caused any consequences, you can proceed to staining.
Put on gloves and mix cream paint and developer milk with a brush. The consistency should learn homogeneous. Proceed to staining should be immediately.
If you have not dyed your hair before, then apply the mixture strand by strand over the entire length of the hair. If you used a different paint, you should first apply the composition to the roots and immediately distribute along the entire length. And if you need to tint the roots (as I am now), then apply the mixture only on the regrown part of the hair.
For convenience, I divide the head into 2 parts. At first I paint the upper part, I start with a parting and gradually move in one direction, and then in another. Bind the hair with the mixture in a bun and take it to the back of the head. It is quite difficult to paint here, and I usually ask my eldest daughter for help. She divides the hair into vertical stripes and applies the mixture.
As soon as the last smear has been applied, note the time as indicated in the instructions. My own hair, I pull it in such a bun on top of my head. This is the moment immediately after it is carried.
After the time is up, moisten the hair a little and massage it for about 1 minute. If you dyed only the roots, then wet hair should be combed with a comb with sparse teeth and distribute the paint over the entire length. And then wait another 5 minutes.
Now you can run into the bath and rinse the mixture thoroughly. I usually use shampoo and then apply care cream for 10 minutes. When the care cream is washed off, all that remains is to dry my hair and enjoy the result!
