Getting the Right Tone of Your Hair Color: 4 Professional Tips to Follow

If you are a person who enjoys dying their hair, then you’ll already know that getting the color and shade right can be very difficult. For many women, the only way to get their hair exactly how they want it is to go to a salon. Unfortunately, salons are expensive. At the minute, a lot of people are feeling the crunch and don’t have the money to go to the salon once or twice a month. Thankfully, you don’t actually need to go to a salon to get your hair’s shade, color, and tone just right. This post will tell you how you can do it yourself.

All Things Hair

Toning Drops

Instead of dying your hair, you might want to use toning drops. Generally, women use purple toning drops because they work for most hair colors. Toning drops won’t change your hair color like dye will, but it will remove yellow, red, and orange tones from your hair, as well as make it much more vibrant. Toning drops are very easy to apply. They are also very affordable, making them a good choice for women who want to improve their hair’s appearance.  

Shade Selection

Instead of going down to your local beauty store to buy hair dye, turn to the internet. You can find many more products online than you can in your local store. You will have a lot more control over the shade of your hair when you buy products online. Make sure that before buying a product, you are happy with the shade that it is. You should also read a product’s reviews before purchasing, and ideally look at pictures of how the dye turns out once applied.

Mixing Shades

A lot of women try to mix shades themselves at home. Unless you are an expert or have taken the time to practice and learn, this isn’t recommended. However, if you are able to find a video tutorial that gives instructions for mixing the exact shades that you have on hand, then you can follow along with that. You may also want to go down to your local salon and ask one of the hair technicians to explain to you how you are supposed to mix shades properly. Mixing shades can help you to get a tone and color that’s more suited to your taste.

Dye Protection

It isn’t necessary to explain how to dye one’s hair since most hair dye packages explain how they are supposed to be applied. However, if you are going to be dying your own hair at home, then one thing that needs to be emphasized is the importance of protecting your skin and clothes from the dye; this is where a lot of women let themselves down. Make sure to are wearing clothing you don’t care too much about that can be easily removed, and also ensure you are wearing gloves.

Dying your hair at home is easy, all you have to do is to follow the product’s packaging. However, what isn’t easy is getting the perfect shade. The best way to do this is to mix shades, and also to shop online and find one that’s perfect for you.
