DIY Regrowth Colour Packs

Belinda Greenham

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing laws, we have regretfully had to close our doors to clients BUT we are still always here to help you look and feel your best!!

Just because we are spending more time at home does not mean we want to look at our colour regrowth so we have you covered! (well at least the greys will be!) We are putting together personalised DIY regrowth colour kits that you can purchase and we will organise contactless delivery or collection options for you. There are 2 packs to choose from:

$50 - 1 tube of permanent colour
$75 - 1 tube of permanent colour + 1 tube semi colour for ends

The packs are available for existing clients only - as we can go off your previous colour records. The packs contain everything you need to banish the regrowth blues, plus we have put together instructions and a video for you to follow. (scroll down) To order your pack please contact Belinda via facebook messenger or via text 0403306028

Please try to avoid home box dyes as you may end up with an incorrect colour match, they won't give you the desired coverage and they are hard to correct if you make a mistake with your colour choice.

Home colouring kit instructions

Set up

Your hair should be 100% dry and clean of excess oil or product. comb through thoroughly so your hair is free of knots and tangles.  Place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothing and wear gloves. Apply a barrier cream such as vaseline around your hairline taking care not to get any on the hair.

Create a centre part from front to back, the one ear to ear so your hair is in 4 sections and clip.  (like the top of a hot cross bun)

Colour mixing

you will need 30g of colour (aprox 1/2 tube) with 30g of developer. (1:1 ratio) if you are only doing your hairline and parting 10g of colour and 10g of developer should be enough. (close developer and tube immediately after use).

Mix thoroughly until completely combined.

Application

Start by applying the colour around the perimeter of your hair. ensure all the little hairs are covered then apply to the partings you have created. Make sure you use enough colour to cover the regrowth.

Starting with the front sections, take small horizontal sections, each section should be fine enough that you can see the colour through the hair (painting colour on the regrowth only) work your way through the sections and then onto the back sections until all regrowth is fully covered.  The back may be a little more tricky, using a mirror reflection may help. 

Let the colour process for 40 minutes. rinse and remove your gloves and keep for removing your colour.

Colour removal

Put your gloves back on, add a little water to your hair and emulsify the colour around the hairline. This will help remove colour staining from your skin.

Thoroughly rinse the colour from your hair. Once the water runs clear, shampoo your hair twice and follow with conditioner as normal.

 

WHEN APPLY YOUR COLOUR, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH CLOTHING, SURFACE AND YOUR EYES.

WEAR OLD CLOTHING AND USE OLD TOWELS TO AVOID STAINING IF YOU DROP ANY.
