Achieving the Perfect Shade

Here at Dye My Hair, we’re massive fans of the phrase ‘prior preparation prevents poor performance’, so it should come as no surprise that we advocate for a pretty intensive pre-dyeing routine to ensure your hair’s in optimum condition! Here are our top tips for ensuring your mane is prepped and ready to dye:

  • Firstly, it’s important to remember that in order to achieve the prettiest pastel purple result possible, that you should apply your chosen lilac hair dye to hair that’s been pre-lightened to a level 9 or 10. Pastel dyes are designed for application on white or blonde hair, so if you’re a redhead or brunette, you’ll have to reach for the bleach in order to get a proper pastelised look. The lighter your hair is, the truer the colour result you’ll achieve, simple!
  • Secondly, it’s essential to tone your hair to remove any brassy tones. This preparatory step will mean that your hair has an even and light base shade, making it a better ‘canvas’ for applying your lilac hair color onto.
  • Lastly, make sure that you’ve had any dead or crunchy ends snipped off and that you’ve used a nourishing intensive conditioner to rehydrate your locks. You wouldn’t apply paint to a wall that’s cracked, dry and uneven, so why would you put dye on your hair if it’s in a sorry state?

Once you’ve got your hair looking and feeling gorgeous, it’s time to get your dye on! Whether you’re a novice or a dab hand at dyeing, your hair will only look as good as your application technique. If you want a salon-worthy, neat result, make sure you follow our pastel dye application guide:

  1. Comb your hair, and part on your preferred side. Next, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly around your hairline and in and around your ears to prevent staining. Wash your hands, then pop on a pair of disposable gloves to keep your hands protected.
  2. Using a tint brush, begin to apply color to the roots of your hair, beginning at your parting. Using the end of the tint brush, section your hair every inch or so and apply color to both sides of the section. Work in one direction all the way to your ear, then go back and do the other side.
  3. Once the roots are done, begin to apply color to your hairline, beginning in the middle and working around the head until you reach your starting point. Make sure you apply the color with a steady hand, as dye drips aren’t a great look!
  4. Now it’s time to color the lengths! Work in sections and bring the dye down through your hair, working from root to tip until each section is fully saturated with dye. Repeat until you have full head coverage, then pop on a plastic development cap to trap the heat in and speed up the development process.
  5. Allow the color to develop for the time stated on the dye packaging, then remove the cap and rinse the color out using cool water. Once the hair is free from dye, dry and style as normal.

And there you have it, our complete guide to getting a stunning result with lilac hair dye! No matter whether you opt for a solid application, an ombre look or a two tone style, you can be sure to achieve pastel perfection with our gorgeous range of temporary light purple hair dyes!
