Home Hair Dye Experiment (successful)

August 27th, 2018 at 04:05 am

I'm not even sure what happened last time I wrote but here's a small financial thing I did a couple of weeks ago - dyed my hair successfully for the first time!

My hairdresser is great and much cheaper than hairdressing salons at $110 for a half head of foils. I always said that if I stopped going to her I'd dye it myself because generally what I get done is nothing magnificent really, just touching up my regrowth and a haircut.

So our security doors were getting installed at the same time as the hair appointment so I tried rescheduling however she didn't have anything for the next month so I got to try out my experiment! I watched some videos on YouTube and then went to a hair supplies shop and they worked out what I would need, the best colours and gave me instructions plus directions on how much of each.

All up it cost $106 however with their ratios I still had half a bowl of dye left over so I actually have enough hair dye left in the tubes for another two dyes! So instead of $110 for foils and haircut it was technically $33 for a tint (per use). I will go back to her in October however as the December appointment is at 6am I am thinking of cancelling that then and doing the tint then too.

    Sounds like you did very well and very economically!

    I'm guessing that your hair is streaked? Or you have highlights? Working with foils sounds complicated -- I'm glad you had a good result!

    Thanks Rob & CB Smile.

    CB I get foils usually and was going to try to match the streaks however the people at the shop thought it would be too hard for someone with little experience dyeing their hair. So we've tinted to match the majority of the hair colour... there is a gap where the streaks before were but because my hair colour is a mixture of colours that aren't that different it doesn't stand out that much. Next time I get the foils done they just have to match it up then. Nothing too major I don't think.

    Great job! I might try my hand at highlights someday - I do miss having them.
