Don't forget to use protective gloves and an old towel, especially when
you are new to hair coloring.
To keep the dye off your skin, you could put creamy gel like Vaseline
around your hairline and it's better don't get it in your hair though,
or it will unnecessarily bother your hair coloring process.
Include some hair clips for sectioning your hair, have a timer handy and
find a hand mirror so that you can see the back of your head.
Use only those shampoo that are made for color treated hair. It will
keep your hair color soft and natural looking. Do not shampoo your hair
regularly. It can strip color and natural moisture from your hair.
After shampooing, always blot your hair dry. Don't rub hair dry or wrap
it in a tight turban. When using a blow dryer, dry your headľ not your
hair. Over drying hair strips it of moisture and also results in static.
Deep condition your hair regularly at least every two weeks to restore
moisture and shine to color treated hair. As roots grow out, a color
enhancing conditioner will help your natural hair color blend with your
color treated hair.
Never use a brush on wet hair. Work through tangles with a wide tooth
comb, starting with the ends and moving to your scalp.
Conditioners that you leave in your hair often contain sunscreen and
help protect your hair color from fading.
Wetting your hair with bottled spring water helps to shield it from the
harsh swimming pool chemicals.
