The first step in dyeing strands of hair is choosing the dye, read the dye instructions carefully at home.
When used for the first time, it is advisable to test for an allergic reaction of the body. To do this, apply a small amount of paint to your wrist and wait for a while. If the skin is not reddened, you can proceed to the main procedure.
First, you need to lubricate your forehead and temples with any greasy cream so that random drops of paint do not stain your skin. Just do not catch your hair with the cream, otherwise the paint will lie unevenly.
Put on gloves on your hands, they usually come with the paint. Stir the paint in a special small container, strictly adhering to the description.
Hair should not be washed before dyeing. A dry strand is separated (usually start from the crown) and paint is applied with a brush. If hair dyeing with this tone is done for the first time, then the strands begin to dye from the roots and go to the very ends. If you have already used this tone, and you need to touch up the overgrown roots, then, of course, the paint is applied to some roots. And then after a certain time it is combed to the ends of the hair.
If you have long hair, then it is better to pin each strand, with paint applied to it, with a special clip or an ordinary hair clip.
Different dyes have different exposure times to the hair. This is all indicated in the instructions. Depending on the structure of the hair and the desired effect, the dye is kept on the head for 20 to 40 minutes. After the dyeing time, it is necessary to slightly moisten the hair and massage it with your hands for a better effect of fixing the dye. Wash off the paint under a warm stream, until the drained water is completely discolored.
After dyeing, apply a conditioner balm to your hair. It helps to preserve the structure of the hair and revives the color, makes the strands more shiny.
