Hair Dyeing Tips
- Buy two boxes of our best copper hair colour, the last thing you want is to run out half way through the process. If you have got long or thick hair, it is advised that you buy two boxes.
- Do a strand test. Yes, we know that you are really excited about dyeing your hair but you wonít be so happy when your beloved copper brown hair colour turns out looking like swamp water! Do a strand test on an underneath section of your hair (about ľ of an inch) so you can hide it if the colour doesnít turn out the way you expected.
- If the colour is different after the strand test or youíre adding copper hair dye for dark hair, consider bleaching before adding the copper hair colour. We recommend leaving the bleached hair for a few days before adding the additional hair dye.
- Donít use the bottle in the box. Since you are aiming for a salon finish, squeezing dye straight onto your hair isnít going to do the trick. Instead, pretend like youíre a colourist, mix the dye in a bowl and use a colour brush for the application. We have a range of brushes and bowls available on our website.
- If you just want to add a few highlights, use a clean mascara wand or a clean toothbrush and apply the dye where the sun would normally hit your hair, this is generally on the tips and around your face. This will give you great natural looking highlights.
- Colour works best on dirty hair, the colour will penetrate the strands better so donít wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours prior to applying the colour.
