A beginner’s guide to coloring your hair at home!

Coloring your hair is one of the most therapeutic activities you can do to de-stress and express yourself. But for beginners, trying to color your own hair at home is terrifying. Who knows how your hair will turn out, right?


But Kolours is here for you! Getting your hair color right does not only transform your appearance, it can also help you express yourself even better. And compared to your expensive salon visits, trying out box dyes can help you save time and money!


Your own daring journey of coloring your hair is about to start. Check out these tips and tricks we have put together so you can finally achieve your dream hair color. 


  1. Choose a hair color formula that protects your hair and keeps your color vibrant longer.
    Look for a hair dye infused with vitamins that can protect your hair and scalp. Kolours Dual Conditioning Hair Color is formulated with Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 that can help protect your hair against damage and keep your hair vibrant longer.

  2. Don’t look at the model’s hair color in the box, check out the description on the sides instead.
    Picking your next hair color may not be an easy choice, but getting the right shade is more challenging than you would've thought. So instead of just glancing at the model’s hair color, look for the color swatch at the sides of the box.

    Your hair color results will vary depending whether your hair is untreated or lightly colored. But, Kolours Premium Hair Dye is specially formulated for the best coloring results for your hair to help you feel more confident. Just remember to check out the color swatch on top of the box and get that runway ready hair you have always dreamt of! 

     

  1. Skip washing your hair before your treatment.

    Did you know that permanent hair colors, such as Kolours’ Dual Conditioning Hair Color, works better if you keep your hair unwashed at least the night before your treatment?

    According to Stylecaster, the natural oils that your hair produces can help the color adhere better to your hair. Not only that, it also keeps your hair and scalp protected from unwanted irritation from the hair dye’s components.

 

  1. Keep yourself (and your bathroom) clean with a spare towel.

    Cleaning up after a messy hair coloring session is a true pain. So to save you from the hassle of cleaning up, try to prepare a towel you aren’t using anymore. Wrap it around yourself to avoid staining your clothes and other parts of your body.

    And to keep the stains away for your bathroom floor, you can also use old clothes or newspapers to cover the area surrounding you. Or, you can just look for a hair dye solution with a non-drip formula, such as Kolours Dual Conditioning Hair Dye!

  1. Protect yourself with plastic gloves.

    Each Kolours Hair Color box contains a pair of disposable pIastic gloves that you should use for the entire hair coloring process. Not only does it keep the color from staining your hands, it can also protect your skin against irritation from chemicals.

  1. Carefully read the instructions!

    No hair dye is the same. Depending on the formulation you are using, you need to leave your hair dye on your hair for a specific amount of time for it to work. So, to make sure that you get that hair color you've always wanted, read the box dye's instructions before you treat your hair and always remember to do a skin patch test. Remember, just because we use the same brand over the years doesn’t exactly mean our skin will react the same.

  1. Ask help from someone when applying your hair color.

    Applying your hair color evenly can be tricky. Although you can try sectioning parts of your hair for better coverage, there will be some spots you might miss, such as those in the back of your head. So having someone help you out would be ideal, especially if it’s your first time (Now would be a great time to ask Mom or your sister). 

Dyeing your hair has never been easier thanks to Kolours! Not only does it provide the best colors to highlight your features, it also keeps your hair healthy with the help of Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 to help keep your hair vibrant for a longer period of time.
