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

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

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.
