Everything You Need to Know About at Home Hair Colour

Whether you’re looking to refresh your locks with subtle tones or make a bold statement with exotic colours, we’ve got the complete lowdown to help you navigate through the world of hair pigments and semi-permanent hair colours.

What Does Pigment Mean in Hair Colour?

Pigment, in the realm of hair colour, refers to the molecules that absorb light, giving hair its colour. There are natural pigments, and then there are those fabulous artificial ones that paint our world in all the shades of the rainbow (and more!). The right pigment can transform your tresses, ensuring that the colour payoff is as sensational as you envisioned.

Semi-Permanent vs Permanent Hair Colour: What’s the Difference?

Semi-permanent hair colour is like a vibrant vacation! It allows you to experiment with colours, coating the hair shaft without penetrating it, and usually washes out after several shampoos. On the flip side, permanent hair colour commits to your locks, penetrating the hair shaft, and the colour stays put, only to be changed with another round of colouring.

Tips and Tricks for Getting the Most from At-Home Colour Products

Preparation is Key: Ensure that your hair is in the best condition for colouring. Clean, well-conditioned hair ensures better colour absorption.

Choose the Right Product: Based on your hair type, desired colour intensity, and longevity, choose a product that aligns with your colour aspirations.

Follow Instructions: Stick to the guidelines mentioned on the product. Timing, application method, and aftercare are crucial for achieving the desired results.

NOTE: For hair toning products, pre-lightened hair will achieve brighter and more vibrant results.
