There are many ways in which your can color your hair, some permanent and some temporary. Temporary hair coloring solutions last around 6 weeks depending on how many times you wash your hair. They are a lot gentler on your hair as they do not lift the hair cuticle, and penetrate the shaft; instead they sit on the top layer of the hair. You can find many hair color ideas around the web but it’s difficult to find the right one.
When you go into a drugstore you often see little sample colors next to each box of dye, unfortunately buying that color doesn’t mean that your hair will come out that exact same color as the sample. Regardless of which brand you buy the packaging will urge you to test a small sample of your hair first. Here is how it works:
- Mix a small amount of color together in a bowl.
- Select a small amount of hair to color, and apply the dye to the hair.. You can clip the test strand or wrap it to ensure it does not dye the other hair around it. I usually snip a piece of hair off and dye it,
- Follow the directions on the packet in terms of timing, then rinse.
- Make sure you look at the hair in various different lights both inside and outside to ensure that you like it.
