Learning how to color hair at home like a pro is really no different than learning how to do it professionally. Many people learn this and others choose to quit after a couple of weeks and go to the salon.
So let’s get down to the nuts and bolts of how to color hair at home like a pro. All it takes is a few basic things and you will be well on your way to becoming a hair expert at home. It is important to keep these things in mind.
Any time you are paying thousands of dollars for color, you want to get the best results possible and save money at the same time. The good news is that there are some easy tricks to make coloring at home a lot more cost effective.
First, you need to know what you are doing before you start. Most salons do not go over the color preparation process with their customers and they don’t have a problem when they do.
You also need to know what your limits are. Not everyone has natural blonde hair that will bleach like crazy or that can be colored.
For those who have naturally curly or wavy natural blonde hair, go over the preparation process with your stylist and ask them to test the color on a section of your hair first. If it doesn’t look good or if you think it could look better, you can then use a crazy hair colours or put on a small section at a time and try it out.
Relax – It is important to be relaxed before you start the coloring process. Some people relax before the dyeing and some relax after the dyeing. Eitherway, they end up being both stressed and anxious about the experience.
It is a good thing to relax as much as you can before going into the dyeing room. Your goal is to minimize the pain during the process.
If you have never used hair dye kit, it is a good idea to use a gel color first before putting any dye on your hair. This way you won’t be using as much product to get the same effect as you would if you used dye. Plus, you will be less likely to get too red or to have to touch up your base.
Prepare for perfection – You also need to know what you are looking for before you go into the salon. If you are going to a professional salon, you will want a natural blond or a beautiful blonde. That’s just the way it is and you should respect the fact that your hair is going to be exactly that.
With natural blonde hair though, it is very hard to find a tone that is even. You may find that there is a range of shades you can choose from for this reason.
Knowing how to color hair at home like a pro will mean that you will save a lot of money. Not only do you save money, but you also save time and stress.
