How To Color Hair At-Home
All of us love getting some color on our hair every now and then. But, pricey hair color splurges at the salon every few months could be heavy on the pockets. For some, colouring their own hair might seem intimidating but for many, adding a tint of color on their hair every now and then seems like a casual affair . Are you one of those who loves to add a hue on your hair at home? Try out the Garnier Color Naturals at-home hair colouring kit as it makes at-home hair coloring very understandable and easy!
Step 1: Choose the right hair color shade
Start by choosing the right colour for yourself based on your skin tone. Simply check yourself or ask a friend what looks good on you and you should be ready to go! You can go 2 shades darker or 2 shades lighter than your natural hair color!
Step 2: Allergy test
Resist the urge to jump right into coloring your hair. Do a strand test to check if you are allergic to the product. Simply test it out by applying some behind your ear, leave it on for 15 minutes or so and wait until 48 hours. If you break out at that spot, then you’re allergic to the hair color!
Step 3: Assemble a kit
You get almost everything you need in the Garnier Color Naturals hair color box itself. All you need to arrange for is some petroleum jelly, a comb and a towel. Use the petroleum jelly on your hairline as that will help not stain your forehead and the towel will help keep things clean.
Step 4: Play it like the salon colorist
Mix the developer and colorant thoroughly by following the instructions provided in the box and then part your hair in 4 different sections!
Step 5: Application process
Now it’s time to apply to color! This process needs a lot of attention to detail as well as patience. As the roots need the most color, apply the color on the roots first and then start applying the color on the rest of the strands. To ensure full coverage just apply the color on the roots till the mid lengths and then work in the color from the mid length to the ends! Be patient with this process and do not rush anything.
