One of the quickest ways to instantly change one's look is by changing hair colour, the change is instantaneous and can be dramatic in some cases.

But while this can be a fun and flattering venture, it can also be tricky and sometimes downright disastrous for the hair as tales of ruined dyed hair abound. This is not to say there aren't success stories, but to achieve perfectly dyed hair, its important that several important facts are understood.

Here are some of such key things:

  1. Avoid chemical processes like retouching before dyeing your hair so that the hair isn't too weak from all the chemical processing that it starts to break.
  2. It's important to deeply cleanse the hair so that nothing interferes with the deposition of the hair dye.
  3. It's important you use the right product. Some dyes have very harsh chemicals which can break the hair. However Dark & Lovely kit comes highly recommended as it achieves the desired result with minimal breakage.
  4. You need to care for your hair even more after its coloured in order to avoid breakage. Moisturising and deep conditioning are key.
  5. Stay away from heating tools as this can cause damage to the hair.
