Managing Dyed Hair

The first step in changing the colour of your hair naturally and in a stress-free way is ensuring that you have the right product for your hair type and skin. The skin matters because if you are allergic to any ingredient in a certain hair dye, you will not have a pleasant experience with it. 

When applying hair colour, make sure that you assemble everything you will need and have it within reach. Most mishaps that occur during the colouring process are a result of poor preparation.

Also, note that most hair dyes, apart from the plant-based ones, contain some ammonia. This is what makes the dye stick, but it gives it a certain smell and causes skin irritation. The downside of products without ammonia is that they produce weaker hair colouring results. It is advisable to always do a patch test on a product before applying it to your entire scalp as this will help you avoid injuries and damage to the skin.

Finally, when you have finished dyeing your hair, and especially with ammonia-based compounds, make sure that you moisturise and condition the hair a lot. Hair dyes are known to dry up the hair and the scalp, and failure to oil and moisturise could lead to breakage. With these tips in mind, your DIY hair colouring projects will never go wrong.
