Although not everyone can afford to hire a professional to color their hair, it can be safer that way. On the other hand, you can learn how to dye your hair at home and do it like a pro. Allow me to take you through all the knowledge you need to be that pro:
Decide On the Hair Color and The Method To Use
Settling on the color you are going to use, is a very challenging but yet very vital step. It will be quite more comfortable if you are looking forward to a dark color, particularly Ombre colors. If you need to transform a virgin hair into honey blonde, orange, or red, they need to have their natural colors.
If you are for bright colors such as blues, neon's, pink or yellow, it will be best when you buy 613 extensions, so that you can bleach them first, to transform their colors. You can find the color 613 hair extensions in our stores at Knock Out Virgin Hair. That is the best choice that will help you take your looks an extra mile.
About the methods of coloring, this is the second step after settling on the best color of your choice. There are two things to consider when selecting the mode of coloring: the brightness of your color and your comfort.
Below are some of the best methods you can choose from:
It contains the mixture of colors, a conditioner and gloves. It is quick and easy to use, and the colors are semi-permanent.

Do you want to color your hair brighter and in a quick way? This Is the method to choose. You will only have to deep your extension in a bucket of a mixture of hot water and the coloring agent and soak it.
Preparations before coloring
Before coloring your hair, you have to prepare for the process, just like you need to prepare for anything else. If you treat your extensions the same way you treat your natural hair, it becomes advantageous on your side. You are just about to put your extension under harsh conditions.
Therefore, you have to take protective measures on it. One of the greatest things to do is to deep condition your hair and apply to it a repair mast treatment. This will even ease your coloring process because hair that is in its best state responds quickly and well to colors.
Another essential product needed before the process is hand gloves. Unless you want your hands matched with your hair color, you will never dare apply color on your hair on bare hands. This is one of many products needed by various significant hair coloring methods named above.
After Color Conditioning
After coloring your hair, the next big step to make is washing it. Wash your hair correctly, condition it and give it time under the drier, so it can regain its strength. The process of coloring tends to break it down. Therefore, you have a lot to do and ensure it comes back to normal.
Post Color Maintenance
Ladies, I know you love the color, and it seems easy dealing with as you did not expect. Your progress is not bad, and you need to keep it up. I have news for you though; it does not end at that point. There is more to do, maintain the hair.
