  • DIY hair colour

    Girls, i have recently bought a loreal feria latest hair colour 65 which i like it so much. But the problem is i have never dye my own hair b4 so can anyone gives advice on how to do a good job?

    actually i'm not very sure also...did it twice but with the help of my gf :o: that's what they're for!

    but anyway you must put on an old tee cos' it will be stained...then you must mix the chemicals, you can follow the instructions on the packaging...

    for the dyeing part, start from the bottommost hair and work up outwards, always dye a small section at one time and then comb through after you're done, the leftover can just anyhow put on top or throw away...it's quite hard to do yourself cos' you can't see the back

        If you are dyeing virgin hair, ie. hair that has not been dyed or treated before, add 6%-9% of peroxide to the dye mixture. The peroxide helps to lighten the hair slightly so that the colour will be more obvious. Peroxide is gentler than bleaching, as bleaching will damage the hair much more. But if you wanna go much lighter, like platinum blonde, you need to bleach.

                i've used Feria before and i think the instruction sheet in the pack is pretty comprehensive. try following that?

                however, try to get someone to spread the colour into your hair for you if you want it really even. if you can live with some unevenness (sorry i can't spell ), you can just do it yourself.

                  I do at home dyes all the time. I think the trick is to comb your hair after you distributed the dye. It ensures that every strand of hair is coated with the dye solution. I almost always get good results.

                    the bigen prominous (sp?) hair dyes are really easy to use. there's a comb attached to the dye bottle so you just squeeze the bottle and comb through your hair. piece of cake!

                          I used to see L'Oreal highlighting kits at stores a few years back, but not anymore. The kit comes with this brush that you can apply in streaks all over your head. Anybody seen this selling anywhere? I think they've discontined this a long time ago...

                              i was at the loreal counter @ metro paragon the other day with my friend and the sales promoter told her that they can arrange for hair dying there with the purchase of some range of loreal hair colour products (sorry not too sure about the range as i was not paying attention). maybe can drop by the counter to check with the SA?
