Consumer testers and controlled lab tests are used by the Beautyfetch Institute to test at-home hair dye regularly. We dye swatches with brown, blonde, red, and black shades in the lab and assess their grey coverage. We then put each product through a series of tests over four weeks, including 20 wash/dry cycles and 10 hours of UVA light exposure. After that, we evaluate each swatch for final grey coverage, shine, and fade resistance.
Hair Color Ideas and how to use at home
Step 1: In a Cream Developer container, pour Ammonia-free Colorant. Shake vigorously until the mixture is entirely dissolved.
Step 2: Divide your hair into four equal parts. At each parting, apply the mixture to the root area. Don’t massage your hair into your scalp.
Step 3: Leave-in: Leave the mixture on your hair for a total of 25 minutes. Level on for an extra 5 minutes if you have resistant grey hair.
Step 4 Rinse: Apply a small amount of warm water to your hair and gently massage the color mixture into it. Rinse your hair well.
