Dyeing your hair at home is one of the best ways to update your look, keep your vibe feeling fresh, and keep your bank balance in check. But thanks to horror stories of at-home colouring mishaps, it can be a daunting task to grab the bottle and take the plunge.
Despite the hair horror stories you’ve heard from a friend of a friend of a friend, at-home hair dying is safe when the instructions are properly followed, you do your research, and you’re certain that you’re ready for the change.
But to help you master the art of the ultimate at-home makeover, pro hair experimentalist, @charliehernanx is here with a tutorial to ensure your colour always looks salon fresh.
Ps. ALWAYS a patch test in the time advised by the dye you’re using.
Shampoo and towel dry bleached/lightened hair.
Unnatural colours such as pink, blue, and green work best when hair has been bleached beforehand. If you’re naturally dark haired, you can lighten your locks with Bleach London’s Total Bleach Kit.
Mix your dye together in Bleach London’s Eco-Conut Reusable Tool Kit. Charlie is using Bleached London’s Super Cool Colour in The Big Pink.
Always do a strand and sensitivity test before home dying hair.
With the tint brush from Bleach London’s Eco-Conut Reusable Tool Kit, brush the dye through the hair one section at a time.
Charlie recommends starting from the back and making your way to the front.
Once dye has been on for 30 minutes, wash the hair with shampoo twice to ensure all dye has been removed.
Add Bleach London’s Reincarnation Mask and allow to work for 20 minutes to keep the hair nourished.
