How to dye thick hair

How to dye thick hair

If you have thick hair strands, it is more difficult to have it coloured because colour pigments cannot build in the hair as easy and the result could be lighter than desired. It is worth going for ½ or 1 colour nr. darker hair dye and leaving it on your hair for a longer period of  time.

Colour correction for already dyed hair to lighter colour

 Colour correction

In professional language this process is also called stripping. You may apply this sort of lightening correction if your hair ends have got darker or you have ended up with unwanted shades.

I always apply this „colour cocktail” on wet, unwashed hair to lighten already dyed hair because it removes unwanted artificial hair pigments slowly and gently.

Ingredients for the „cocktail”:

Dye your Sunkissed hair to a warm blondish brown colour

If you don’t take care of your hair with UV filtered hair products when you are on holiday, you may return with an ugly, faded and dry hair. Sunkissed, faded hair is very fashionable, but I guess ombre hair is even more stunning.

I want to dye my bleached hair to light blonde

 I want to dye my bleached hair to light blonde
Monique has found her platinum blonde hair locks a little boring. She has imagined a naturally balanced ombre hair style with platinum blonde as the master colour. No yellow, no orange colour please. She has got a little longer than shoulder high hair. I have started thinking a colour no. 7 to achieve a nice, natural ombre.

Although my guests don’t necessarily understand everything I tell them „in hairdresser language”, I do my best to explain professionally what they would like to know, because believe me, they are very keen to get informed.
Of course she has had a lot of questions. I hope my hair won’t get green or grey?
I could tell by looking at her facet hat she was terrified so I explained her how to dye bleached hair.

You should colour the base colour of your hair to a shade lighter. (bleach)
Mixing ratio: 1 unit of hair dye + 2 units of volume developer
Apply the colour on the whole length of your hair and leave it on for 15 mins.

If you want to end up with a nice even colour, work the colouring cream through your hair every 5 min.

Golden blonde hair coloring at home

How to dye golden blonde hair
Golden blonde hair coloring at home as a salon?


If you have colour no. 5-6 or 9 hair, than you can achieve it without pre-bleaching. If your hair is darker, you need to pre-bleach.
Those who have strong hair, they usually need to use higher vol. and one shade lighter colour than the desired result.
When you lighten your hair colour, it gets yellowish.
If you dye your hair to golden blonde, you can actually use the yellowish colour to end up with golden colour. Golden shade is a result of natural colours and the proper intensity of volume, there is no need to use peachy colours.
