Steps to Color Your Hair:
- Make sure you read the instructions at least twice. Reading the instructions is important; it will help you avoid making unnecessary mistakes. Before you begin make sure do the strand test recommended. The strand test will help you determine how much time you need for your hair to color. Wear the gloves included, they are for your protection. Once your gloves are on you can mix and stir the hair color solution. Most of them require you to add the color formula to a developer and shake or stir well.
- Now you can begin applying the color mixture to your hair. You begin applying it to your roots and work your way down to the ends of your hair. You can part your hair into sections, that way you color every strand.
- Next, pile your all your hair on top of your head and cover your hair with the plastic cap. This cap is usually included in the package. Begin timing how long the hair color has been in. If you did the strand test, you will know exactly how much time you needed for your hair to change color.
- After your time is up you can wash all the color mixture out your hair. Make sure you thoroughly wash all the substance out of your hair. Condition your hair to replenish the moisture. Usually a special hair conditioner will come with the coloring solution.
