Brown Hair Color Correction

Women, I know at times you think my comments on hair color at home, or better still, my advice on brown hair color correction sounds like a broken record. But here is what a reader who claims to be a professional hair colorist, has to say on the matter . . . I’ve seen it all too often myself. Thanks Ashley!

Comment: I was scanning over the comments and I am shocked at how many people color their hair at home. If hair color was a simple science I would not of had to go to school nor spent 20 grand on my education to be the best colorist I can be! Like I said, if it was this easy there would be no need for salons. On a better note for me at least; Keep coloring it at home because the color corrections at the salon make my paycheck lately!


If you are set on doing a brown hair color at home, here is what you need to know before grabbing a box of  hair color and throwing it on your head . . . It may save you many tears, not to mention your hair! If you have previous hair color, high lights, high lifted color, or any chemical on the hair, it will contribute to the end hair color result that you will get.

DON’T’ TRY TO COLOR THIS YOURSELF. At least, not the first time. Have a professional hair colorist get you to the hair color you want.

If you are watching your bucks, and want to do some of your own hair coloring at home, discuss it with your professional hair colorist. They are really the only ones who can direct you to the right hair color process for your individual needs. In many situations, hair colorists will work with you and give you a formula that will work for you to use at home until you can afford a professional. This can keep hair color appointments to a minimum and your hair in good shape.

If you have ROOTS OF A DIFFERENT HAIR COLOR, they will need to be treated differently than the rest of your hair. Get professional hair colorist advice on this one also. The porosity of your hair contributes to the length of processing time any hair color should be left on your hair. Basically the drier the hair, the more it will grab the hair dye and if the porosity is uneven, the hair color will take unevenly. (This is a reason you see darker ends on bad hair coloring jobs.)

Before purchasing the new hair color, read the chart on the back of the box to determine shade you need in order to achieve your desired end result.

BIG TIP . . . WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET. This is where a majority of people make their first mistake. It would seem to make sense that you buy the box of hair color that shows the picture of the hair color you want, but it doesn’t work that way. You need to know your base or natural hair color in order to use the chart of hair colors correctly and this also is a place where many people make mistakes.

READ ALL DIRECTIONS before beginning and follow them without deviation. The large mega companies who produce home hair color products you can buy at your local drug store, beauty store or grocery store, know all too well how to market their product and make it look easy to use. They price it right and the models used . . . Now really, have you ever seen more gorgeous hair in your life?? Just remember the saying . . . Buyer beware!

Don’t jump into brown hair coloring your own hair without doing your homework first . . . Come on now girls, it’s your HAIR!! Read for yourself just some of the difficulties people get into when hair coloring their own hair at home

Nothing can lift your looks and your spirit like a new color for your hair.
