I have been experimenting with my hair colour since I was 14.
From red streaks to green ends, platinum blonde to covering my greys. Hair colour is a great way to express ourselves, and I've always leaned into mixing it up to do just that.
The explosion of products we have at our fingertips to achieve salon-quality hair from home has never been better. Colouring your hair from home can be such a cost-effective way to achieve great results while never leaving the house (and for me, not getting out of my slippers).
But like with any beauty activity, there are rules to know, of course, that help you achieve that "just stepped out of a salon" hair you want.
Here are the 12 rules I've sworn by when colouring my hair at home.
1. Be honest with yourself.
Being honest with what you can achieve is a handy spot to start, and that extends to being realistic with your hair goals based on where your hair is currently at.
If you've been colouring your hair blue-black for a while, I am here to tell you that the platinum blonde... will not work on your hair first go. It's time to consult your hair professional on that one!
But in saying that, topping up your new blonde roots, or trying a fresh colour near your existing hair colour, can definitely be achieved with your pick of a high quality at-home hair colour. I can recommend Solfine's Crema Colour collection from Priceline as a savey product that actually delivers.
At around $13.99 a box, it's formulated with active ingredients based on coconut oil, so you just *know* it's going to leave your hair all soft and glossy.
