Understanding color theory and the science of hair are imperative to color processing. It is always my recommendation to see a professional for color (even if you intend to attempt to do the process yourself) to avoid making irreversible, costly mistakes that could ultimately be detrimental to the health of your hair. In this tutorial, I give some basic information that will help you make a more informed decision and have a better conversation during consultation with a stylist.
