Dyeing your hair is a great way to change your look. But if you don't do it right, the results can be pretty ghastly. If you seek a new do without the harsh chemicals, these steps will give you the locks you've been looking for.
You Will Need
*A natural hair-dye kit
*An old t-shirt
*An old towel
*A wide-tooth comb
*A gentle shampoo
*An egg timer (optional)
Step 1: Open kit
Open your hair-dye kit and become familiar with its contents. Read any warnings or precautions before starting.
Tip: Before using any hair coloring product, test a small area of your scalp to check for allergies according to the package directions.
Step 2: Set up
Set up your workstation near a sink, being sure to wear an old t-shirt and using a towel you don't mind staining.
Tip: Natural hair dye does not contain bleaching agents such as ammonia but will stain on contact.
Step 3: Mix
Mix your tint with the included developer following the directions on the package.
Step 4: Apply
Put on your latex gloves and apply the mixture to your roots. Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the coloring through your hair.
Step 5: Massage
Massage the dye into your hair using your fingertips and allow it to set according to the directions.
Tip: Use an egg timer to avoid over exposure and don't get distracted with other activities.
Step 6: Rinse
Rinse your hair thoroughly with a gentle shampoo such as baby shampoo.
Step 7: Style
Style your hair as desired. The full effect of the dye will take 24 to 48 hours to develop, so be patient.
Fact: Natural hair-dye kits account for just ten percent of the hair coloring market – about $1.25 billion annually.
