I get it—keeping your hair colored can feel like a full-time job. Well, I have a few tips and tricks that can make coloring your already-colored hair at home just that little bit easier. Whether you’re doing a touch up , darkening your hair , or going to a completely new shade—these tips will help you get that professional salon look!
1. YOU DONT NEED TO COLOR ALL YOUR HAIR EVERY TIME
Remember different parts of your hair absorb hair color at a different rate due to the porosity of your hair. When the hair has been dyed previously adding more dye leads to build up. This will make the ends darker than the roots, not a good look! So you should really just touch up your roots. Also you find a product that will revive your ends, but not color them.
2. ARE YOU CHANGING SHADES? START WITH A STRAND TEST
I recommend a strand test. This will allow you to see what the color will look like and give you an idea of the timing needed.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS
Take a ¼” wide strand from the underneath of your hair near the nape and secure in a hair tie or clip.
Use a small mixture of 1 part Radiant Cream Color (a pea-sized amount) and 1 part Conditioning Color Activator (a pea-sized amount) and apply to the strand of hair.
Start timing. After 15 minutes, check the strand. If the strand is not the color you want, return and check the color every 5 minutes for up to 35 minutes. To cover resistant gray, it may be necessary to leave the hair color on for up to 45 minutes.
6. TIMING IS EVERYTHING
When it comes to cohesive hair color, timing really is everything. Think of your hair as three distinct sections—roots, mid-lengths, and ends. Hair color is meant to be on these sections at different times.
Roots: Often, this is where we start when applying hair color—whether you’re covering grays or changing to a completely new shade. The roots are your newest, freshest hair so it takes a bit more time for the color to perform when coloring hair roots.
Mid-lengths: This hair is a little more porous. It has been exposed to natural and unnatural elements such as sun exposure, previous coloring, highlighting, and heat styling—which means the hair shaft is a bit more open than your roots and receives hair color more easily.
Ends: The most porous of our hair, the ends, have been through the most. They accept color very easily and don't need as much time to process as your roots.
It’s always a good idea to give your roots the most time to absorb color—say about a 20-minute head start from the rest of your hair. After that, you can gently comb the hair color down your hair, adding more color to your mid-lengths and then finally to the ends.
7. FINISH STRONG
To get the best results after coloring, make sure you use a great shampoo and conditioner to lock in that fresh color. This is also the best way to preserve your color and keep your hair looking its best.
