Before doing these steps, if your scalp have symptoms of shingles, fungal infections and other problems, then you need to make a appointment with your doctor to treat it well first.

If not that serious, have a check whether your skin was sunburn. In the summer, especially the first bright days of summer, it’s easy to get a sunburn on your scalp.

If there are head lice on your scalp, don’t worry, use a medicated shampoo as directed, wash all bedding and clothes you’ve worn, in very hot water, then dry on hot for at least 20 minutes. Dry clean all non-washable items, vacuum carpets and upholstered furniture.

Treating the Synthetic Hair With Vinegar And Water Mixture

Before installing the synthetic braid and or synthetic wig, it’d better to pretreat your synthetic extensions, soaking them with the vinegar and water mixture will break down the alkaline solution.

Put a 2:1 split of water and vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) into a bucket, and saturating all the synthetic hair extensions for about 15 minutes, then rinse the hair in warm water and add conditioner to soften hair. Rinse again and air dry the braids or synthetic wigs.

But if your hair is already installed, you can fill the vinegar mixture with a spray bottle and spray directly onto your hair and scalp thoroughly, let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out. You’ll be happy during the process, the itchy will be gone, and this step can be use time to time, it’s helpful to dandruff too.

 

3. Change Your Shampoo and Hair Conditioner Regularly

Don’t have apple cider vinegar? You can also try washing the hair with regular shampoo to rid of the alkaline base. This may require a bit more more work to get it all out. Make sure to condition hair, too.

Trying a new shampoo and conditioner for two weeks will help remove any build-up that has resulted from constant use of your traditional brand.

Another thing you can use if you’re broke or don’t want to buy another shampoo is get olive oil, mayonnaise and broccoli; mix them together, and rub it on your scalp. Olive oil actually reduces oiliness, mayonnaise hydrates and gets rid of lice and adds luster and shine, while the broccoli can clean deeply. You can also use an egg for nutrients. But remember to eliminate any hair products that contain alcohol from your hair care regimen. Alcohol is a powerful drying agent, and can easily cause an attack of the itchiness.

 

4. Dry Your Hair Thoroughly

Damp hair will cause product buildup, and your scalp will be subject to the drying action of evaporation, which in turn can lead to itching. Even worse, mold can grow in hair! You definitely want to prevent that.

The most important factors relate to your hair color is the skin tone. If the hair color you chose didn’t match to your kin, it is noticeable to your families or friends.

Things you will need to dye hair

Things you will need to dye hair

Tinting bowl and brush

Sectioning clips

Gloves

Tail-comb

Gown

To achieve your professional hair look, you need to use the tools that your hairdressers use. With the proper tools, you can get better look and you can make dyes easier and happier.

Hair dye rules

Color can’t remove color – hair that is dyed already, can’t be lightened with more dye.

When hair is lightened, warm tones are revealed – use a cooler dye to counteract this.

When pale hair is dyed dark, ash tones become prominent – use a warmer dye in this case.

 

Before you dye

Once you’ve picked up your right color, you need to know that. If your hair has been dyed before, adding more hair dye on your hair can not lighten it. You can dye it darker but not lighten dye with dye. So if you want to go lighter your hair, you’ll need to bleach it, not dye again.

Hair dye can lift a maximum of 3 levels, so it is not suggested to dye you hair more than 3 levels. If you do want to change the color, bleach it first.

If you want to dye your hair lighter, choose a dye that is a littler cooler-toned than the color you want. This is necessary to counteract warm tones that appear during lightening. If you apply the exact color you desire, you may find that the warm tones that are revealed during lightening which will look too warm in result. Likewise, if you apply a shade that is much darker than your current color, pick the shade that is slightly warmer to your desire.

 

Peroxide volume

 

Volume 5 vol 10 vol 20 vol 30 vol 40 vol
Use Tone on tone color – demi-permanent dyes Up to 1 level of lightening – dyeing darker – tone on tone color Up to 2 levels of lightening – also used on resistant gray hair Up to 3 levels of lightening Generally only used in high lift dyes

 

 Preparing to dye hair

Before you start to apply the dye, have all the equipment set up, sectioning your hair properly. Dividing your hair into four separate quadrants. Using the tail-comb to part it from forehead to the nape of your neck. Divide it again to get four section of hair to work with. Then you can mix up the hair dye and begin applying it.

 

Mixing hair dye

Mixing hair dye

Mixing hair dye

Hair dye needs to be mixed with developer in order to work. The developer is hydrogen peroxide, and this is what gives the lightening of the dye when you dye your hair lighter, and also what makes the dye permanent by oxidizing the dye molecules. When you mix a dye up, the developer needs to match your intended action.

To lighten hair, you need to use a higher volume of developer. You can use 20 vol for up to 2 levels of lift, or 30 vol for up to 3 levels of lift. High lift dyes are mixed with 40 vol developer to give a maximum of 4 levels of lift. In this sense, if the color you desire is two levels lighter than your current color, you will need to use 20 vol developer to lighten your natural color enough to dye it that shade. You will also need to use 20 vol developer if you are working with hair that is gray or resistant to color.

If you’re dyeing your hair darker or using a tone-on-tone color to tone your hair, you can use 10 vol peroxide because you don’t need lightening power here. Demi-permanent dyes are mixed with 5 – 7 vol peroxide depending on manufacturer. To convert the volume of peroxide to a percentage should you require it, each 3 percent hydrogen peroxide is equivalent to 10 vol. This means that 10 vol developer is 3 percent, and 40 vol developer is 12 percent.

Mix the hair dye in a 1 to 1 ratio of hair dye to developer. High lift dyes require a 1 to 2 ratio of high lift dye to 40 vol developer. Very rarely, the manufacturer may vary this ratio, in which case you should check the ratio on the color’s instructions.

Applying hair dye

Applying hair dye

Applying hair dye

After mixing the hair dye together with developer, we should start to applying it properly. The developer starts a reaction once it is mixed, so we need to apply it to the hair asap.

Apply the hair section by section. Using the tail of the comb to take the thin layers from the top of the first section hair, brushing hair dye over each layer from top to bottom, repeat it for sure that your hair has been completely covered. Usually it will take 20-45 minutes to process for the hair dye. After that, you can wash your hair to clean out the rest of the hair dye.

The best part of dyeing hair yourself is that you can be yourself and reflect the inner beauty. If you don’t to dye the hair youselfe, of course, you can dye in the salon or just buy some Trendy Tape in Hair Extension to apply on. Life is too short to have boring hair! Have fun with hair dyeing.
