How to Color Your Hair At Home
With non-essential businesses closed and no access to salons, a lot of our usual beauty routines have been put on pause — especially our hair color!
My roots needed a little sprucing up, so I called my colorist and had him walk me through the process of coloring my hair at home. If you're like me and need a little direction, see my steps below.
Step 1: Get your color
If you have a colorist you normally like to go to, try reaching out to them to see if they can mix the color up for you. My colorist mixed up my usual color and sent it to me with directions and a little brush.
If you don't have access to a colorist, some popular at-home brands are Madison Reed, Color and Co by L'Oréal and eSalon.
Step 2: Recruit a helper
It's almost impossible to color your own hair, so you need to ask someone at home for help. Luckily, my daughter Stevie was up for the job. She happens to be so precise and is seriously good at everything, so I was in good hands!
Step 3: Apply part by part
After Stevie mixed it up, she applied some color onto the brush and started in the middle of my part. Then she used the metal side of the brush to part it piece by piece to get all of the roots.
If you have the opportunity, FaceTime with your colorist to get the stamp of approval!
Step 4: Let it sit
After your helper feels they have covered all of your roots, leave the color in for around 30-45 minutes.
Step 5: Blow it out!
Wash your hair and blow it out. Stevie seriously gave me the best blow out!!
