5 simple tips for a nice and easy hair colour session at home without the fuss! 

Having the *hair colour* you want doesn’t have to be a hassle. You can easily get your desired look from the comfort and convenience of home. Whether you’re a seasoned hair dyeing pro or a complete newbie, check out our top tips to make sure you have a *nice and easy hair colour* session at home. 


Prepare your hair

In the run-up to dyeing your hair, make sure it’s in good condition. In addition to taking it easy with heat styling, invest in a good conditioner or hair mask to give your hair plenty of hydration. Look out for products with super moisturising ingredients, such as avocado oil, honey, almond oil and argan oil. This is also good practice for hair dye aftercare. 


Choose the right dye for you

With such a wide range of hair colours in a whole spectrum of shades, choosing your dye is about more than just the colour you want. Do you want *temporary hair colour*? If so, be sure to buy a *temporary hair dye* rather than permanent. Select which features and ingredients of a *hair colour* are most important to you. If you want a rich and nourishing formula, look for those supported with natural oils, such as the Color Naturals range (enriched with three different oils) and the Olia range (a flower oil-powered hair dye).  


Buy a spare box

It can be a good idea to buy a spare box, especially if this is the first time you’ve ever coloured your hair. Shoulder length or longer hair may need a little more colour, depending on whether your hair is thick or fine. To avoid running out mid-colour session, it’s best to have a spare. You can always use it next time if you don’t need it immediately.  


Test your colour first

It may be tempting to skip the colour test and dive straight in, but it’s worth remembering that your hair is unique. Everyone's hair is different, so the only way to know what the finished colour will look like on you is by testing it on some hidden strands of hair first.  


Dress for the occasion

When using dye, accidents can happen. You don’t want to get *hair bleach* or colour patches on your favourite work outfit! Before starting, change into some old clothes, ideally something that you don’t have to pull over your head (like an old bathrobe). 


Now that you’ve learned some simple tips to make hair colouring at home nice and easy, the fun can really begin! Enjoy choosing your new look and creating your new image, safe in the knowledge that achieving your colour at home can be super simple.
