Top Tips For Achieving The Perfect Hair Color

Are you considering dying your hair? Or need a touchup in between dye jobs? Maybe you are thinking of doing it yourself instead of heading down to a salon; especially if it’s just a small section that needs touching up. Great news – coloring your hair or touching up your roots at home is perfectly doable as long as you follow some tried and tested tips.

Coloring Your Hair

When it comes to coloring your entire head of hair, not every strand is made equal. What does that mean? Simply that different parts of your hair will take a different length of time to respond to color. We lay it out for you below:

- Roots: Most people start their dye jobs by applying color to their roots. As roots are the newest, freshest hairs on your head, the color can take a longer time to absorb.

- Mid-Lengths: This is hair that’s already been exposed to the sun, hairdryers, styling and much more. You will find that mid-length hair is more porous, absorbing color more easily than the roots.

- Ends: As the part of your hair that’s been through the most, the ends often take the shortest length of time to absorb color.

If applying dark hair dye, start with the roots and give it at least a 10-minute head start before doing the rest of your head. Slowly start to add more color through the rest of your hair, combing it down your mid-lengths to your ends.
