How To Colour Your Hair At Home

The past couple of years have been far from what anyone ever imagined, and we humans have had to adapt and learn to do a lot of things ourselves. From waxing eyebrows to fake nails to at-home facials, we have become self-sufficient more so now than ever. We've even seen a spike in at-home haircuts and colouring making hair professionals worldwide cringe at the sight of some unfortunate errors.

Whilst we do recommend having a hairdresser look after your locks, there have been times and undoubtedly will be more times that we may have to take action into our own hands. If and when this occurs, it's imperative that you have quality products and an easy guide to avoid any mishaps.

Our SPS colour range is as close to professional colour at home that you will find. So, we have listed out some instructions below. 

Colouring With SPS 

Do not shampoo hair before colouring.
Always wear gloves.
Product should be applied immediately after mixing.

Always mix colour according to manufacturer's recommendation in a clean, dry plastic bowl.

First Time Application
Divide hair into 4 equal parts. Apply mixed SPS tint to dry hair 2cm away from the scalp, working from the front to the back in 1cm sections. Allow to process for 10 minutes. Now apply to root area and complete the full processing time.

Regrowth Application
Divide hair into 4 equal parts. Apply mixed SPS tint to the re-growth area working from the front using 1cm sections. Process for 25 minutes and then comb through to the ends of the hair for the remainder of the processing time. SPS porosity equaliser may be added to the colour mix at this stage to ensure even colour results. 

Colour Removal
When development time is complete, add a little warm water and emulsify colour. Massage gently and rinse thoroughly. Ensure the water runs clear and all colour has been removed from the scalp. Lightly shampoo hair and finish with a colour hair conditioner to lock down the cuticle layer of the hair and prevent fade. 

Please note that the instructions are on the inside of the SPS tint boxes, so be sure to keep it and don't throw it away!
