Learn tips and tricks from a natural hair dye professional Rod Harper
Here is some tips to help you dye your hair better and faster!
Hair prep is extremely important. If you are using oil or leave in conditioner, you will want to make sure that no residue is still in the hair. Be sure to shampoo thoroughly prior to application using a clarifying shampoo, no conditioner. You can use conditioner again after your first shampoo 24 hours later.
Always shampoo your hair after you rinse the dye out at least 24 hours later. Using a gentle shampoo and do not go longer than 48 hours. Waiting can cause the hair to oxidize and turn multiple colors.
Do not leave dye in your hair longer than 1.5 hours. Doing so can cause reds to appear.
Never mix any other ingredients in with the powder unless you have done so in the past. Things like lemon and oil can restrict the coverage or keep it from working entirely.
There is no need to mix the paste and let it set out over night. Our henna is fresh and releases instantly. Leaving mixed paste out for long periods can keep the dyes from working properly.
If you are dying your hair and it has been a long time and you have major roots in the front, start the application from the side, working up and over the top of the head and then down towards the back.
