  3. Protect your home and yourself from dye stains.
  4. Put a towel or color cape around your shoulders.
  5. Brush your hair well.
  6. Coat your hairline, ears and neck before applying dye to your hair.
  7. Put on your gloves.
  8. Use the supplied bottle or a bowl to mix the dye.
  9. Mix your dye with developer.

Dying your hair:



Use a comb to separate your hair into four different sections. Use large salon clips (found at your local drugstore) to hold the sections apart. Separating your hair into these sections will ensure that you don’t miss a patch of hair



Apply the dye to your hair in sections. Break each section of hair up into smaller 1/4″-1/2” subsections as you work (this will just make your dye job more even.) Use the applicator bottle or brush to dispense the dye onto your hair. Use your gloved fingers to work the dye into your hair. Whether to begin applying the dye will depend on whether or not you have ever dyed your hair before.

For virgin (first time dyeing) hair, start applying dye about 1 inch from your roots.

For touch-ups, start applying dye about ½ inch from your roots.

Work the dye into your hair well so that you do more than simply color the top layer of your hair.



Set a timer for how long you need to leave the dye in your hair. Follow the instructions on the box. Do not rinse the dye out before the minimum time or leave the dye in past the maximum time. Make sure to follow the directions exactly. If you have a lot of grey hair, it’s best to leave the dye in for the maximum amount of time. [8]

Never leave hair dye in overnight. Leaving it in overnight will dry out your hair and it may cause severe skin irritation as well.


Rinsing Your Hair

  2. Wait until the process time is up to rinse your hair.
  3. Shampoo and condition your hair.
  4. Dry your hair and style as usual.
