  1. Put on gloves to protect hands from the dye.
  2. Mix the colour according to instructions and apply colour to hair immediately after mixing.
  3. You may not be able to divide your hair into sections with clips.
  4. Take a section of your hair and apply colour to dry hair, massaging from roots to ends. If your hair is long, pile the sections you have coloured on top of the head and use a clip to keep it up, off your clothes.
  5. Leave colour on for the time period you have been instructed. If you leave colour on for less time, it will not allow colour to fully develop in your hair. If you keep it for too long, it can cause hair damage.
  6. When the time is complete, carefully rinse all excess colour from your hair. Use shampoo if the instructions say so. Use a colour-safe shampoo to wash your hair.
  7. Use a conditioner for colour-treated hair to condition your hair.
