COLOR APPLICATION ON RE-GROWTH

image of a clolor application on re-growth hairThe hair color (in the picture to the left marked red) should be applied on the newly grown hair only. Process it for about 25 - 30 minutes, add a little shampoo, water or conditioner to the color left in the bowl or bottle and work this mixture gently and evenly with fingertips all over the hair. Process for about 5-10 minutes. This will freshen up faded hair color on the hair shaft and the ends. If you had [previously colored hair do not apply color all over the hair shaft right away and then process it for 30 minutes. The color will be deposited over and over and that will create very dark hair on the ends. That's why anyone can notice, that it is a "home job".

COLOR APPLICATION ON A VIRGIN HAIR

image of an application on the virgin hairThe color application (in the picture above marked red) must start at 1 - 1 and 1/2 inches away from the scalp and from the ends. The root area (at the scalp) processes fast due to the body heat, and ends process faster due to the high porosity of the hair. After processing the hair for 15-20 minutes, apply the color to the rest of the hair, making sure it is completely saturated and process for about 25 minutes. This is the only time, when hair gets deposited on the whole shaft first.

 

COLOR APPLICATION ON VIRGIN HAIR IN PICTURES

Here you can see a change of subtle highlighted hair into all over blond hair. Hair was divided into 4 sections. The color was applied to the sections starting at the back bottom about 1 inch away from the scalp and moving to the top.

After all the subsections were finished with color applied 1 inch away from the scalp, I made sure that the color is distributed evenly on the hair shaft. Using my fingers I "massaged" the color very gently in. The color was then processed for 20 minutes.

After the hair was processed for 20 minutes, the color was applied to the root area. I made sure that the hair line was not omitted. Hair was processed for another 30 to 40 minutes longer.

I like to use a lot of color in order not to miss any spots. The body heat made color runny. I had to wipe the tint running down the cheeks and forehead. That is why everybody should have this process done in the salon, where a colorist or an assistant could keep an eye on your safety.

Hair was shampooed and conditioned.

Then hair was styled. The hair in all these pictures is naturally curly and I decided to blow dry it slightly wavy. I used the brush to smooth the hair cuticle, and hands for creating a lot of body by pulling the hair straight out, heating up the hair at the root area, cooling it down and styling it.

In the first picture you can see that hair was tucked behind the ears. The las image shows a style that was scrunched up with a help of a pomade, tussled and lightly sprayed with a hair spray.
