Coloring Your Hair at Home: Dos and Don'ts for Perfect Results

Changing your hair color can be an exciting adventure, whether you're trying to cover up those pesky gray hairs, experimenting with a bold new look, or just refreshing your current shade. While a trip to the salon is often the go-to option for hair color transformations, many of us have found ourselves in a DIY hair dyeing situation at one point or another. Coloring your hair at home can save you time and money, but it can also be a risky endeavor if not done correctly. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the dos and don'ts of coloring your hair at home, and how you can achieve perfect results with the help of TXTUR products.

Dos for Successful At-Home Hair Coloring:

Choose the Right Hair Dye: Start by selecting a hair dye that matches your desired color and consider your hair type. 

Read the Instructions Thoroughly: Don't skip this step! Each hair dye brand and product comes with specific instructions. Make sure you read and understand them before you start.

Perform an Allergy Test: Before applying hair dye to your entire head, do a patch test to check for allergic reactions. This simple step can prevent unpleasant surprises.

Protect Your Skin: Apply a barrier cream or petroleum jelly along your hairline, ears, and neck to prevent the dye from staining your skin.

Section Your Hair: Divide your hair into sections using hair clips. This makes it easier to apply the dye evenly and ensures all your strands are covered.

Use the Right Tools: Invest in good quality hair coloring brushes, bowls, and gloves. These tools can help you apply the dye more precisely and minimize mess.

Follow the Processing Time: Stick to the recommended processing time mentioned in the instructions. Leaving the dye on for too long can damage your hair and lead to uneven color.

Rinse Thoroughly: After the processing time is up, rinse your hair until the water runs clear. Use a gentle shampoo like TXTUR's Bond Repair Shampoo to remove any residual dye without stripping your hair of moisture.

Don'ts to Avoid Hair Color Mishaps:

Don't Rush: Take your time with the application process. Rushing can lead to uneven color distribution and missed spots.

Don't Overlap: Avoid overlapping the dye on previously colored hair. This can result in a darker or uneven color.

Don't Apply Dye to Dirty Hair: Hair dye adheres better to clean hair. Wash your hair a day or two before coloring for the best results.

Don't Skip the Strand Test: Always perform a strand test to see how the color will turn out on your hair. This helps you avoid unpleasant surprises.

Don't Overdo It: If you're a beginner, avoid drastic color changes. Going from dark to light or vice versa is best left to professionals.

Don't Neglect Aftercare: Once your hair is freshly colored, it's crucial to nourish and maintain its health. This is where TXTUR's products come into play.

Nourishing and Replenishing Your Hair with TXTUR Products:

Bond Repair Shampoo: After rinsing out the dye, start your post-coloring routine with TXTUR's Bond Repair Shampoo. This sulfate-free formula gently cleanses your hair without stripping away color. It also helps repair and strengthen your hair's bonds, leaving it more resilient.
