When it comes to hair dyeing hacks for at-home color you’ve probably heard your fair share of warnings. Messing with hair dye at home can lead to some unpleasant results. Whether it’s an unfortunate shade of brassy orange when you were trying for bleach blonde, or your hands become a dyed mess, it seems like everyone has had their own hair dye horror story. To help you out, we’ve compiled a few hair dyeing hacks that have saved us in our times of need and we’re hoping they help you, too.
Hair Dyeing Hacks that Really Work
1. Condition, condition, condition.
It doesn’t matter if you’re going lighter or darker (or in the salon or at home for that matter), whenever you use hair dye on your strands you’ll want to deep condition your hair, leading up to your treatment. The Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Heat Defense Leave-In Conditioner is a great way to condition your hair and get it prepared it for your color treatment.
2. Call a friend.
Two heads are better than one, right? Having a friend help you out will infinitely improve your chances of coming out with a look you adore. Even someone with little to no hair dyeing experience will be able to see parts of your head that you can’t and will be able to do a better job. Another plus side is that you can always turn it into a spa night and do each other’s hair. The Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Moisture Restoring Masque is the secret to a DIY beauty night that can leave your hair feeling soft and smooth.
3. Plan for some insurance.
Maintain your color post-dye job with TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo and the TRESemmé Color Revitalize Conditioner. This duo provides a glossy finish to keep your recently colored strands looking vibrant, healthy and those compliments flowing.
