Use two mirrors : Coloring the back of your head can be tricky. As you apply dye in front of your bathroom mirror, hold up a handheld one to ensure you don't miss spots, Hill recommends. Have cleansing cloths on hand : Use wipes like Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to soak up any dye splatters as they happen. If you wait until you're done, they may have already set. ("I still have stains I can't get off!" one tester sighed.)
Condition Every Time You Shampoo Color_Treated Hair : When you do shampoo, be sure to condition your color_treated hair every time with a color_protecting conditioner. Conditioned hair will help your color look shinier and more even. Even if you have fine hair, condition the tips, which are the oldest hairs on your head and have the most damage. Start at your ears and work your way down to the ends. Product Usage Matters on Color_Treated Hair : What you put on your hair will make a difference in the longevity of the color and the long_term health of your hair. Dyed hair requires special attention, so invest in salon_grade products formulated for colored hair. Using color_protecting shampoos and conditioners on color_treated hair can help protect the color and add shine, volume and luster.
