Natural Way to Dye Hair
Feel like skipping the salon (and saving yourself some extra moolah) by going all-out DIY on your hair color? If this is your first time to do it, you are probably feeling even the slightest bit nervous. After all, this is your hair – and you only want the best outcome for it. Success in terms of results will stem from two things: your own skills and the best hair dye for sensitive skin. For the second requirement, the only brand you should consider getting is Sanotint by Vivasan. Its ingredients are derived from natural sources so you are sure that you are using a chemical-free product that gives you great results in terms of color without the irritation. This is a great hair dye for men with sensitive skin and women with sensitive skin or scalp conditions.
But what about the first requirement, which is your own skill set? After all, your hair dye for sensitive skin will not apply itself. In this article are easy-to-follow steps that will have you coloring your hair like a pro using Sanotint products.
Breaking it Down: Step By Step
- Know what you need to start: a pair of rubber gloves, a hair coloring brush (you can buy this at any store selling hair or salon supplies), a thin comb, some hair dressing clips, lotion, and a smock to wear. You will also need two mirrors: one mounted on the wall and another one you can hang on the opposite wall (to see the back part of your hair).
- Follow the product instructions for preparing the solution. Make sure you follow the mixing instructions to the letter!
- Prep your skin by applying lotion just right before your hairline, all around your entire head. This is to ensure that you will not get any dye marks on the skin if you accidentally paint on your skin without knowing it.
- Start on the part. Wear your rubber gloves and get ready to paint! The best place to start is the section where you part your hair. Just brush on a little bit of the product directly on the roots and out to the tips of the hair, working it section by section.
- Flip and start over. When you finish a section, flip it to the other side and secure the painted parts with a hair clip. This will ensure you have all areas covered as you will only focus on the dry parts.
- Work around your head. Still following the hair part line, work your way around your hair in the same manner. If you have shorter bits at the back that cannot be flipped and secured, just brush on them. The important thing is to remember to concentrate on the roots, because that is where regrowth shows.
- Still have some product left? Go over your entire paint job and dab along the hair line or other areas you think you did not get to thoroughly paint.
- Wait for 30 minutes and then follow the directions for rinsing out. Wash your face with a good facial cleanser, concentrating on the areas around your hairline to get rid of any accidental tint.
And that’s it! The key to making fewer mistakes is to choose a dye that is not so far off from your original hair color – maybe only a few shades lighter or darker. With time and practice, you will be able to color your hair on your own like a pro – and get to replicate the work done by salons for minimal to zero cost!
