Find out also how to dye your hair to maximize performance, without leaving yourself skin allergy.
To fight against the roots of graying hair, most people need to dye your hair 4 to 6 weeks. Prioritize to the roots when applying hair dye and not on the hair shaft. This is because the hair root is the part that is still “young” and quick to absorb. Divide your hair into sections and then apply hair dye along the root, the area where hair grows and then proceed to the ends of hair. Hairdressers even suggest using cotton to help spreading the color on the root area of the target.
How long should I wait to wash hair?
After the initial stage of washing, which is the rinsing of the dye, try not washing your hair up to 24 hours. This is intended to set the dye. When washing, choose a shampoo that is specially formulated for colored hair.
How to make hair color last longer?
Try to avoid long direct contact to the sun, because its shine can make hair dye fade faster. For long-lasting hair color, you can also spray anti-UV to the wet hair.
If I fear my skin to get a bad reaction towards the hair dye, can I test a product without having to buy more than one box?
You only need one box if you do the coloring at home. Buy the dye products at least 2 days before you plan to color your hair, so you can perform allergy tests. Pour about a teaspoon of each packaging of Colorant and Developer. Combine the two in a plastic container. Then apply the mixture with cotton in your elbow area which is already clean and dry. Wait till it get dry. If rash or irritation does not appear after 2 days, then you can color your hair without fear of allergic reaction. However, when the itching or irritation occurs, do not use the product.
