Hair dye, oxidizer, paint container, gloves, brush, fine-toothed comb, cape for shoulders
Stylists and hairdressers unanimously advise to dye dirty hair, since the paint in this case lays down evenly and without bald spots. The thing is that the hair has a natural fatty coating, which is not advisable to wash off before dyeing. Always wear gloves before painting to avoid contact with the skin of your hands. If you wet your hair a little before dyeing, the pigment will be absorbed better.
Prepare the coloring composition according to the instructions supplied with the paint. Sometimes the instructions can be found on the packaging itself. Mixing paint and oxidizing agent is usually required. This should be done in a glass or plastic container. Then divide the hair into four sections using two parting: from one ear to the other and from the forehead to the back of the head. Pin each part with a clip. Now start dyeing your hair piece by piece. Try to apply all the color to your hair very quickly: within 10-15 minutes. After all, the oxidation process begins as soon as you mix the components, and ends after 30-45 minutes.
Start at the back of the head and move on to the bottom and side strands. Spread the paint over your temples and over your forehead last. Indeed, in this area, the hair is usually thin, so they quickly absorb the dye. After dyeing, do not cover your hair with plastic. It creates a shell that prevents oxygen from circulating freely. And this is very important for the chemical reaction, otherwise you will not get the expected color. Just leave your head open. Withstand the paint for as long as indicated in the instructions and not a minute longer.
At the end of staining, be sure to emulsify. Apply a small amount of water to your hair and massage your scalp with light finger movements. The dye on the head can foam up when doing this. Pay special attention to the edge of your hair. This procedure will help remove paint from the skin, and the curls will acquire a shine.
When the required time has passed, proceed to wash off the paint. It is very convenient to use a shower for this purpose. Simply rinse off any remaining dye by tilting your head into the bathroom. At the same time, use your fingers to touch the hair so that the paint is completely gone. You can do a light scalp massage. Then apply shampoo to your hair and wash your hair. Be sure to use an air conditioner. Do not be afraid that the paint will wash off. If you have kept it for the right amount of time, this will not happen. Add citric acid or vinegar to the final rinse water. This will make your hair shiny.
Note that dark and extreme paint colors make you look older. If you need to paint over gray hair, choose natural and natural shades. When there are not too many gray strands, a product that is lighter than natural hair is suitable. Many people are interested in the question of when to re-stain? It depends on how quickly the hair roots grow back. This can happen in three weeks, a month, or a month and a half. When dyeing some roots, try not to apply dye to previously dyed hair. This is very traumatic for them.
