Care for While Dying Your Hair

Things You Should Care for While Dying Your Hair

Things You Should Care for While Dying Your Hair:

· Do not apply dye to dirty and tangled hair. You hair should be clean and combed well before you dye them. Deep condition your hair a month before dying to maintain color. Trim hair especially dry and split ends to even out color. Hair should be slightly damp when dye is applied.

· Do not condition your hair a few hours before applying hair dye, shampooing will do the trick. Your hair needs to be free of free radicals such as dirt and oil as much as possible.

· After choosing a brand, apply a tiny amount of hair dye near your neck or behind your ear to see if irritation, redness, inflammation, allergy, hair loss or any bad reactions occur. Wash the affected area right away if this happens. Remember the instructions carefully. Do the patch test 1-2 days before hair dye application.

· Protect your skin by wrapping a towel around your neck as the dye can irritate your skin or affect your clothes.

· Gloves should be used and must be included in a hair dye kit. Applying petroleum jelly or cream around your ears and neck part will keep off stains. Wipe off oil after shampooing. If you do happen to stain your skin, don't worry, rubbing alcohol will remove dye stains from your skin
After dying, always rinse with cold or tepid water to avoid your own hair from falling out.
