    Question Hair dying, possible at home!

    Advertisements
    I haven't dyed my hair in 4 years. I've been wanting to dye my hair recently and the last time I did it was BRIGHT blonde, I'm naturally dark, dark brown. It looked really good but I looked like a porn star (bt the makeup and body shape). I told DB I was thinking about dying my hair again and he was like 'blonde?' I said maybe and he was like 'NOOOO WAY!' He has seen pics of me with the blonde and always shakes his head lol. I was just messing with him, because while I liked the blonde it really didn't fit the rest of my look.

    So anyways, I am thinking about maybe a dark red/auburn color. I have pale skin and blue eyes, not sure if it would look better than the blonde or not. Also I would want to do it at home and am not sure of the best brands of at home dye to use.

    Any suggestions for at home dyes?
    And any tips for being able to keep the color from fading so quick?

    Hm the dark red/auburn would be really pretty I think with your complexion and probably a lot easier to maintain than blonde.. I say go for it! And of course show us a picture afterwards

    I went from blonde to brown/auburn as well. My hair is so long that the salon charges $120, so I have been dying my hair at home for years now! It's so simple. Can get messy though, that or I am just clumsy!!

    I don't use anything other than Loreal brand. I have just had great results and I can usually find it for under $10 at my local drug store. And it only takes one bottle for me and my hair is down my back. Their website shows you the color choices and helps you choose the right color.

    Reds can be tricky and fade REALLY fast, so I'd say you are better off going to a professional to get it done!

    I have gone from blonde to brown to golden to black to reddish brown to brown all at home LOL


    Get shampoo that is meant for colored hair that can help with the fading..

    I am looking around for new hair dyes.. I am going to try this one..

    reds fade fast. the best thing you can do is use a color safe shampoo and try not to wash as much too help the color stay. but since im a hair stylist in training i am totally against box dyes so i say go to a professional

    also if you do decide to do the blonde, do not do it yourself. pleaseee go to a professional if you want to do blonde. if your hair is dark its not safe to do it all in one shot and you'll have to just get highlights and keep adding more every time you go

    Thanks for the help ladies!!!

    I figured red was a fast fading color, I will definitely make sure to get color safe shampoo and conditioner. My hair is long, halfway down my back so I know a salon will pack a hefty price, pros and cons of course.

    My hair is curly, so I only shampoo twice a week bc shampoo dries it out and makes it all frizzy, but I condition everyday. Would conditioning my hair like I already do mess with the color as well?
