Hair Colouring at home is a cost-effective step for many. But like any good cosmetic procedure, the degree to which you are able to perform your duties as a professional is a source of concern. We wanted to know if there was one thing that allowed professional hairdressers to see a DIY dye job a mile away — so we headed straight for the source. Is there a dead giveaway for someone to skip the salon? Ahead, four prominent leading painters tell us the answer. Keep scrolling to see what they have to say!
A dead giveaway to paint your hair at home? The bright colours are a hallmark of DIY dye work. On all boards, regardless of Black hair colour (either blonde, brunette, or red), if the colour is blotchy, you can see that it has not been used professionally.
Additionally, whenever the shade is orange, that means you did not choose the right colour. Especially redheads, if you have grey hair and dye it red, and it has a pink or orange tone, you can say it comes from the home dye. If you see too much orange in the hair or too much yellow that is not refined, you can say it is a box colour. It is not a pale colour. it’s comfortable.
When it comes to brunettes and/or dyeing Black hair colour we have unanimously heard that a very dark and colour polish-y colour is a contribution. As people get darker, sometimes it looks like shoe polish. You see because it looks like very dark black hair. The colour of the box gives you a single colour, flat, and usually does not get light. It does not look shiny and comfortable. It should look shiny and rich and have depth and size.
When it comes to light, the legendary, the roots look lighter than other hairs. In addition, anything that is too striped to be highlighted, and where the brightness itself is too white or, conversely, too bronze.
But do not worry — we have also received a lot of good advice from these colour experts on how to avoid these problems at home, so keep scrolling!
First and foremost, do regular strand tests, recommends. We advise not to go too far at home, as light is more complex than covering grey and dark. don’t use the hue too far away from your real hair colour: Stay between one or two shades from your actual colour. If red, choose a natural colour, such as Black hair colour and copper, instead of bright colours.
To apply, never paint all at once, put in the roots first and then finish. Our advice is to make sure you rub it so that it has the same colour, even if you have to go through certain areas as you go from front to back. You can also keep the colour looking healthy and shiny at home by using a gloss like my Ultimate Shine Colour Glosses.
If it was dark to cover the white hair, Mott only advised colouring the growing ones. Do not put colour on the edges. It will look overestimated.
Lastly, we love great and practical suggestions to think like a professional and create a home colour kit that includes a timer, professional plastic gloves, petroleum jelly (for skin protection), conditioner (hair extensions), and clothing (so you can jump in the shower to remove colour).
