At-Home Haircolor Hints

There’s no denying that a stunning mane shade is an important part of the tress trend equation. Here, the hair color pros at Satin Color share three terrific tips for crafting gorgeous at-home color results…

Tip 1: Extend the life of the color—Extend the hair color by opting for a product made to conceal regrowth to get more time between dye applications.

Tip 2: Pull new color through—Coloring over hair that has already been colored creates a band of darker color. To avoid this, apply the new color to the regrowth and comb it through to about mid length to avoid a dark ring at the crown.

Tip 3: Know what developer to use—For applying darker colors like 1N to 4N, try Satin Semi or Satin 10 Volume developer. This will enrich and accentuate the dark tones of the color. For applying medium range colors like 5N to 7N, opt for Satin 20 volume or Satin Cover Gray developer. This will help provide a true tone and provide full coverage.

For applying lighter colors like 8N to 10N, try Satin 30 or 40 volume developer. This will help lighten your hair and deposit the lightest tones possible. And, when trying to cover stubborn grey with any color, Satin Cover Gray developer is ideal to help penetrate and deposit the color without additional processing.
