3 Best Hair Color Tips You Can Use for Coloring Your Hair At Home
I suppose that the reason why you are reading this article right now is because you are someone who prefers to get her hair dyed at home rather than at a salon. There is nothing wrong in such a preference, except that if you don’t follow the proper hair coloring procedure then your dream may end up in disaster! If you plan to dye your hair at home and want to know how to do it in the best ways possible, then you have come to the right place. In this article I am going to tell you about some of the easy ways you can color your hair at home.
Best Hair Color At Home Tip #1
Use Your Skin Tone As A Guide: If you are fumbling for the right color for your hair, believe it or not, nature has already bestowed you with everything you need to make that decision easily! In order to make sure that your chosen hair dye looks good on you, you should use your eye color and skin color as guides. For instance, if your skin is golden or brown and your eyes are of brown color then any kind of warm blonde dyes, golden dyes (especially caramel), auburn dyes and crimson dyes would be good for you. On the other hand, say that you have got green eyes or blue eyes with a slightly pinkish skin color; in such a case, you can use red color, brown color or ash blonde color – any of the three is bound to look good on you! Usually the color you purchase for dying your hair at home should be at least on shade lighter than your natural skin tone.

Color It Right To Avoid Unnatural Hair Color Accumulation: Perhaps you already know that the hair color at the roots is much lighter than at the ends; the reason behind this is that the roots of a hair is usually more affected by sun rays (which bleach out the hair color) than their endings. As such you need to color your hair in a way so that it does not look unnatural. If you dye your hair the same way from the beginning to the end of your strands, it won’t look good. You should apply a thick shade of your dye at the root of your hair and tone the color down as you progress toward the end of your hair. Believe it or not, this is easier said than done, and if you think you cannot color your hair in this way, then coloring your hair at home is not an option for you!

Gloss It Right: You would find that a lot of women who dye their hair at home have thick visible lines all over their hair which really tell you in big bold letters that the hair is ‘DYED’! You don’t want that to happen to you. Once you get your hair wet, be sure to make the highlights of your hair lighter by glossing over them. Use your hands to massage your hair with a suitable toner, then wash your hair with a conditioner and shampoo so as to make the toning permanent.
As you can see, coloring your hair at home is not an easy task: from finding the best color for your hair to doing it right, it can feel like climbing a mountain for those who have never done it. But believe me, with a little practice, you CAN do it!
