Theo’s Top Tips for Natural Hair Colouring at Home
Q. How do you pick the right colour for your hair/skin tone?
A. Generally everyone looks best around their own natural hair colour or 1 to 2 shades lighter or darker (nature knows best!) If you have pale skin and blue / green eyes copper tones are very appealing, Olive skin and dark eyes suit mahogany tones. Goldentones suit almost everyone!
Q. Are there any special techniques for colour application to get the best results?
A. When colouring previously coloured hair always try to apply the colour on the re growth only as colour on top of colour will go darker. If your ends are faded then apply colour to the ends for the last 5-15 minutes only. Try to take small sections and apply the colour evenly and always go back over it in case you missed any. If you are applying colour for the first time apply it right through from the roots to ends and comb it with a large toothcomb to ensure even coverage.
Q. Are there any tips for prepping your hair before you apply colour?
A. Always do a patch test before you colour your hair for the first time just in case you are sensitive to any of the ingredients.I would always suggest colouring dirty hair rather than freshly washed hair, your scalps natural oils will help protect you from sensitivity that may arise in certain individuals.
Q. What are some suggestions for keeping your colour vibrant?
A.Try to avoid the sun, swimming in chlorine pools and too much heat from styling tools like straighteners and curling irons.
Q. What type of shampoo/conditioner should you avoid using post-treatment?
A. Any products that contain, sulphates, petro chemicals, phthalates, synthetic fragrances and silicones. Herbatint Normalising Shampoo and Royal Cream Conditioner will keep your hair in the best condition and your colour vibrant for the longest period of time.
