Hair Dyeing Tips

  • Buy two boxes of our best copper hair color, the last thing you want is to run out half way through the process. If you have got long or thick hair, it is advised that you buy two boxes.
  • Do a strand test. Yes, we know that you are really excited about dyeing your hair but you won’t be so happy when your beloved copper brown hair color turns out looking like swamp water! Do a strand test on an underneath section of your hair (about ¼ of an inch) so you can hide it if the color doesn’t turn out the way you expected.
  • If the color is different after the strand test or you’re adding copper hair dye for dark hair, consider bleaching before adding the copper hair color. We recommend leaving the bleached hair for a few days before adding the additional hair dye.
  • Don’t use the bottle in the box. Since you are aiming for a salon finish, squeezing dye straight onto your hair isn’t going to do the trick. Instead, pretend like you’re a colorist, mix the dye in a bowl and use a color brush for the application. We have a range of brushes and bowls available on our website.
  • If you just want to add a few highlights, use a clean mascara wand or a clean toothbrush and apply the dye where the sun would normally hit your hair, this is generally on the tips and around your face. This will give you great natural looking highlights. 
  • Color works best on dirty hair, the color will penetrate the strands better so don’t wash your hair for 24 to 48 hours prior to applying the color.
