Auburn Hair Dye
Auburnhair is an excellent colour choice for the fall and winter seasons. Auburn hair colour offers beautiful red and brown hues that are a welcome change from the lighter colours of summer. Do you currently have a different colour hair but are looking to change to a dark ginger? Or perhaps you already have stunning mahogany hair colour and simply need a touch up. Whichever it is, we have everything you’ll need to get the job done right here at Blue Banana.
Step 1: Pick Your Colour and Your Brand
Step one of the dyeing process is to decide which colour will suit you best. Now, there are many things to consider when choosing the perfect colour fit. For example, you’ll want to research which colours work best with your skin tone. Some colours can accentuate your skin while others may be complimentary for a less drastic colour combination. Of course this is just a guide; it really depends on what type of look you are trying to achieve.
Another thing you will want to consider is the colour of your natural hair. It is important to always be realistic when choosing a colour, if you have dark hair and desire an auburn look, this may be quite difficult. You’ll want to ask yourself, "Will this colour dye blend well with my hair or will I have to spend a longer period bleaching my hair first as I try to get the colour I want?”
Consider your options and make your decision. Will you choose the red brown hair dye, dark ginger hair dye, or the auburn red hair dye? Would you want to use a permanent hair dye that will last for months to come or would you prefer something like an auburn hair dye semi permanent? After you have made those difficult decisions you can begin searching our awesome brands for that perfect shade.
Here at Blue Banana, we carry an excellent stock of high-end, top quality hair dyes. For example, you can choose from brands like Stargazer, Splat, Manic Panic, Paintglow, Crazy Color, Herman’s Amazing and La Riche Directions for all of your hair dye needs.
Step 2: Prep and Dye Your Hair
Before dyeing your hair give it a nice deep conditioning treatment. A conditioning treatment will help moisturize your hair. This is beneficial to those considering dyeing their hair because well moisturized hair allows the dye to take to your hair strands evenly. Protein treatments will also assist with freshening up your dry and damaged hair.
A haircut may also be in the cards for you before you attempt to dye your own hair. If you get a haircut a few weeks before you plan to dye it you will significantly reduce the amount of split ends you have. This is a great idea because the less processed and damaged your hair is, the more likely your new dye will look shiny and beautiful!
Another important step you’ll want to consider is bleaching your hair, if necessary. For a beautiful auburn colour you may not need to do this. However, if you have dark hair and you want to achieve a lighter look, you may need to consider doing this a few days to weeks before as it can be a lengthy process. If you need help with this step, consider using one of our Bleach Kits from Blue Banana, we’ve got everything you’ll need to get the job done.
Next, check to see if you have all of the proper utensils for dyeing hair. For example, a dye bowl will allow you to mix any colour without all of the lumps and bumps. Put on your rubber or plastic gloves and mix everything together. After you’ve mixed your dye, use a dye brush to apply the auburn colour to your hair evenly. Let it sit for the recommended time, rinse it out and voila! You’ve got a stylish new colour. Great Job!
Step 3: Properly Care for Your Auburn Dyed Hair
After you have had your hair dyed, it is important to ask your stylist about proper hair care procedures. Depending on the dye or colour you’ve chosen, there may be specific care instructions that will enhance its longevity. Although your stylist may have more tips, here are the basic hair care tips that you should consider:
- Use shampoo and conditioners that are hair dye friendly.
- Avoid brushing your hair when it is wet.
- Wait a minimum of two days before washing your hair.
- Rarely use blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons to protect from heat damage.
- When utilizing heat, protect it with a proper hair serum.
When all else fails, ask your favourite hair stylist for help. You can always take your new hair dye to them for assistance. In fact, when it comes to unique colours, they’ll be so happy that you have already done all of the leg work of finding that perfect fit.
Step 4: Enjoy Your New Hair!
That’s it; you’ve completed the journey to your new dark red auburn hair, now what? It is time for you to enjoy it, of course! Dress yourself up, throw on some make-up and spend a night out on the town showing off your new dark auburn hair colour.
