| March 2, 2017

Girls are crazy about fashion and style and they always do different things to look different from others. Some like to wear different dresses, some like makeup and some want to change the natural hair color.

They don’t get enough time and they cannot bear the expenditure of a saloon on hair dye so this article is for those girls. In this article we will tell you that how you can change your natural hair color at home easily at low expenses.

Save yourself a lot of time and money by first ruling out what would not work for you. While selecting a hair dye shade, manage your expectations and focus on color swatches not on hair models. Keep in mind that permanent dyes are best for covering grays but sheer glosses are ideal for brightening your shade and adding a new tint.

If it is the first time dyeing your hair, it is best to stick to a hair dye that is no more than two shades darker or lighter than your own natural hair color.

Brush your hair well and make sure that there are no tangles left in your hair, this thing will make applying the dyer easier. Properly sectioning off your hair before dye application is crucial for getting allover coverage.

Divide your hair into four even quadrants and secure the sections with large alligator clips. If you have really thick hair or bangs, create a separate section at the front to ensure color is saturated in the crucial spot.

Experts say that using a mixing bowl and brush instead of prepackaging wands and bottles gives you more control when applying color or dye. Completely focus on one quadrant of hair at a time and paint the front and back of small sections of hair and pay extra attention to the hair around the face and don’t dye your ends when doing touch ups.

Once all color is on, cover your hair with a disposable shower cap to keep dye from dripping and staining as you wait for the dye to set. Once you have out the shower cap on, you can wrap your head with a towel so that the cap will retain the heat of your head and the heat from the head will naturally expedite color processing.

Don’t rinse the hair dye out before the minimum time or leave the dye in past the maximum time.  Never leave hair dye for overnight, it will dry out your hair and it may cause severe skin irritations as well.

After your time is up, use warm water to rinse the dye out of your hair and rinse your hair until the water runs clear. After rinse off the color, wait atleast an hour before shampooing because it allows the dye to more thoroughly penetrate your hair shaft.

After shampoo your hair, use a conditioner and rub it thoroughly into all of your hair.  Let your hair air dry or you can either blow dry your hair, after your hair is dry, style it and show off your new hair color to your friends and family.
