Hair Coloring Like a Pro: Top 5 Tips to Dye Your Hair at Home with Stunning Results

Coloring your hair at home can be tricky but it doesn’t have to end in disaster (unless you try Ursula Goff’s designs, then you may be in for a shock). Whether you decide to go permanent, semi-permanent, highlights, or your full head, there are things you can do before, during, and after to save yourself time, money, and frustration. Next time you decide to skip the salon and use a home hair dye, keep these tips in mind for better, longer-lasting results.

If you lose track of time and accidentally leave the color in too long or it turns out to be too dark or concentrated, you can try wash your hair out with dishwashing soap two to three times to lighten color. Use it like shampoo and rinse out completely. If you are going lighter and leave the dye on for too long and end up with orange roots, wait a day or two for the color to oxidise, then treat your roots with a shade darker than you originally bought. However, if your home hair dye is darker than your natural hair and your roots are now VERY dark, you will need to dye the rest of your hair to match or visit a salon for help. If you get any home hair dye on your skin, to remove the color you should apply a little clarifying shampoo (e.g. Klorane Clarifying Shampoo) on the end of a damp towel and rub it on your skin.
