Basic things about dye
A few more tricks...
This is not necessary when you darken your mane.
6.- It is a very common mistake to wash hair with shampoo and conditioner after dying it. To remove the tincture you just have to rinse with plenty of water. Then you can use a moisturizing conditioner if you have low porosity hair, a conditioner with nourishing ingredients if you have medium porosity, or a heavy cream with restorative ingredients if you have high porosity.
7.- Also, a good trick you can use is apple cider vinegar to seal the strands, after the conditioner. The color will last longer, it will not fade the next wash, it will not stain the towels or your clothes. Do you dare to try it?
8.- Another one: to avoid those unwanted spots on the edge of your hair growth line and on the ears, use vaseline or some heavy cream. But don’t touch the hair!
9.- If you lighten the hair, begin to apply the mix at the top of the head, and finish in the area of the neck. In this part, the scalp concentrates the heat more, so it will act faster there.
10.- To avoid itching on your scalp, add a tablespoon of sugar to the mixture. Sugar is hydrating and will give your scalp a break without disturbing the dye mixture.
