At-Home Hair Color Hints!

CHIC COLOR…What makes Satin Ultra Vivid Fashion Colors unique? The formula has a low-ammonia content (less than 1%), has an aloe vera base to protect the hair and scalp and uses micro color molecules for better color penetration. The result: vibrant, rich, shiny color and incredible grey coverage.

Today, coloring your hair at home is easier than ever—thanks to fabulous new hues and amazing color formulas. Here, the hair pros at Satin Ultra Vivid Fashion Colors tackle some frequently asked coloring queries…

How do I know what color is right for me?
You don’t want a color that is too light or dark for your skin tone. Also, you want to stay with your coloring. If you have cool tones stay with a cool color family such as ash, beige, or violet. If you have warm tones stay with a warm color family such as natural, gold copper, red, etc.

What is hair color level?
Levels are the degree of “lightness or darkness” of a color that is reflected or seen by the eye. Hair color is assigned a level number from 1 to 10 with 1 being black and 10 lightest blonde. Black reflecting very little light and lightest blonde reflecting the greatest amount of light. A level 10 blonde would be two steps lighter than a level 8 blonde.

My ends are damaged & porous, how much time should I leave the color on the ends?
On overly porous hair the color should be left on no longer than 5 minutes.
