See how I apply demi-permanent color to my hair in this easy-to-follow, informational tutorial. In addition to watching, please read my full explanation of how hair dye works, factors that affect results and questions you can use during a consultation with a stylist.
NOTE: It is always my recommendation that you consult a professional colorist or stylist in your area before making any decisions about chemically altering the color of your hair. Even if you intend to do it yourself, it is good to know if what you are considering is actually feasible. Hair dye is not a “one size fit all” process. No two people will get the exact same result because everyone’s hair is different. Using what you see others use or guessing can be a costly, damaging, irreversible mistake. This is not meant to discourage you from ever dying your hair, but to arm you with information you need to make a wise, conscious decision!
