Hair colour done at the salon can be pricey–and for some people, it might not be necessary.
Whether it’s to supplement or replace colour appointments at the salon, or you just want to experiment at home, Belisa by Lunata styling tools can help your next at-home colour be the best one yet.
Temporary Colour vs Box Dye
Create a drastic change with temporary colour. Opt for an aerosol to temporarily change hair colour to a pastel tone or bright fun colours.
Box dye will work if the colour is a close match to your hair colour. For two or three shades darker or lighter than what you have, your best bet is a professional colourist.
Rules For Colouring Hair At Home
To create a successful dye job without the big bathroom mess, you’ll need a few tools.
Wear an old shirt and grab your boxed dye, a bowl and brush for your colour and disposable gloves. Line surfaces of the bathroom with newspaper to avoid staining and for easy cleanup.
A barrier substance, such as Vaseline, will help the colour from migrating to your skin or to take off stains if they appear.
If it’s the first time you’re colouring your hair, or the first time trying out the colour, do a strand test to check the dye.
If you like the colour, detangle hair with the Belisa Wide Tooth Comb. Apply Vaseline, or a barrier cream, along your hairline to avoid dye transfer on the skin.
Section hair with the Belisa Alligator Clips and apply colour. Mix the dye in a bowl and apply with a brush. Use gloves to avoid staining your hands.
Apply dye from root to tip, removing the Belisa Alligator Clips as you colour sections. Once you’ve finished applying the colour, put hair into the shower cap and wait.
Avoid frequent heat styling to prolong your colour.
Spend less time heat styling with the Belisa cordless hair hot tools to create long-lasting hairstyles. With titanium components and a temperature range between 200ºF-400ºF with the Belisa Cordless Curling Wand or Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip, or up to 425ºF with the Belisa Cordless Flat Iron, create curls and wavy hairstyles with an even heat at a temperature just right for your hair type.
The Belisa Vented Brush can work well with a hairdryer to rough dry hair. The vents will allow your hair to dry faster, so you can avoid prolonged exposure to heat.
Healthy hair is a priority if you want your colour last. Condition and do weekly hair masks or regular leave-in treatments.
Maintain blonde hair with purple shampoo to counter any brassiness.
Lastly, stay away from hot showers. Heat and moisture will fade your colour faster, so washing hair with lukewarm water is key!
