Fantastic Hair Coloring Techniques at Home

Get the Salon look of Colored hair at home

I have learned that coloring your hair at home can be a lot cheaper than going to a salon. At 33, I have gone to a salon about twice in my life. And when I did go, I didn't like the way they did my hair, so I have always did it my self at home, plus the cost was outrageous.

My natural hair color was dirty blonde, but I have always liked my hair a few shades lighter than my natural color, and with a lot of different shades in it. I usually buy my color at walmart, and always extra light blonde for the base color. After that is put on for about 45 minutes, max. I rinse it out and blow dry it.

My Daughter Kala does Coloring.

For A few years now, Kala has been coloring my hair. She likes to mess around with hair color, changing her color all the time. My hair use to be only blonde but now that kala dyes her hair different colors, she likes to mess with my hair, putting blonde, brown, black and burgundy streaks in my hair, like she does her own. I Have to say that she does a very great job. The color costs three dollars per box.

Kala can never have the same hair color/style for to long. She must color it every 6 weeks she has just about dyed her hair every color. Kala has never been to the salon, she always dyed her hair herself, without the use of foil. Starting with blonde on the entire head and leaving that on for maximum of forty five minutes. The hair has to be light because the other colors will not show up on darker hair as well. After rinsing and drying the light blonde shade, she carefully puts the different colors in different sections of the hair and lays it down, leaving it on for atleast twenty minutes. Kala wants to own her own Hair salon one day. I believe as good as she is now, she could very well make this happen.

trying it at home is not without risks though! although you have a good set up, i can understand why most people stick to the salon

If you have someone that can do it at Home, you can buy Bulk product same as they do.It is also real cheap.

I used to go to a salon paying $85-$100; then I got smart and started doing it at home. Looks as good and only costs about $7.

Wow! She's quite talented. I have a friend who's a stylist at a high-end shop and this looks like the stuff they charge big bucks for. I would love to hear the tips & techniques she uses, as I am clueless at doing that stuff!!
