The toning procedure is simple, it can be done at home. To do this, first of all, read the instructions for the coloring agent, since paints, mousses and foams have their own characteristics.
If this is the first experience in toning, then it is better to choose a color close to the natural hair color. Carefully study the table of correspondence of the original and tint tone. When choosing a paint, do not forget to take into account your color, previous dyes, and the condition of your hair. Do not forget that dark hair cannot be lightened with light shades, it will simply not be visible. If you have more than 50% gray hair, then toners will not be able to paint over it. In addition, the structure of gray hair is porous, so the dye is easily absorbed into them, and the result can be unpredictable.
Before painting, wash your hair and dry it slightly, it should be slightly damp. Lubricate the skin of the face and neck directly next to the colored strands with a greasy cream. Put gloves on your hands, and cover your clothes with a towel or a special cape.
It is very convenient to use mousses and sprays, it is enough to squeeze them out onto your hands and apply to a strand. To help spread the dye, comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb. Let the product soak in, the time is indicated in the instructions. If you use a tinted shampoo, then after applying for the first time, rinse it off, then apply again and soak on the hair for the specified time.
It is better to withstand a new shade for you a little less than recommended. Firstly, the color will not turn out too bright, and secondly, you will be able to assess how much it suits you.
After the time specified in the instructions, wash your hair with warm water without shampoo until the excess product is washed off. If it gets on skin that is not protected by the cream, try removing it with rubbing alcohol.
