Successful hair colouring at home

Published on : 29 January 20202 min reading time

Most women opt for home hair colouring for practical and financial reasons. However, this operation cannot be carried out properly unless the basic rules are followed.

The different hair colourings

Hair professionals distinguish 10 main shades from lightest to darkest. In addition to the shades, there are highlights; warm highlights (golden, copper, mahogany and red), and cold highlights (ash and iridescent). This is why the colours have numbers.

Temporary colouring

It fades after 6 to 8 shampoos. It is the type of colouring that is ammonia-free and less harmful to the hair, but does not provide full coverage of white hair.

Permanent hair colouring

It is the only haircolour that guarantees a wide coverage of white hair. Also if you wish to go towards lighter shades than your natural colour, the wide range of ammonia hair colouring could meet your expectations thanks to bleaching. On the other hand, if you want to go for darker shades, you can choose permanent hair colouring without ammonia, which is less aggressive. Moreover, the action of the product contained in a perm lasts until the hair grows back.

What to do

The day before colouring, revitalize your hair with nourishing and fortifying essential oils.

The “to be avoided at all costs” to achieve successful hair coloring,

Do you have white hair? In this case, avoid lightening shades. The last possible shade is dark blond.

Don’t dare to use shades with red highlights either, because they may give too conspicuous a result on white strands.

Never combine colouring and fading. Never use henna haircolour on hair that has already been chemically coloured.

Don’t forget to wear gloves when applying your haircolour.
