Tips for Hair Dyeing

Utensils needed for colour treatments

If you have a knack for it or just want to experiment, we have a few tips on the best utensils required for colour treatments.

Prep the following utensils before dyeing your hair:

Tinting brush:

  • Narrow: makes application easier, especially when dyeing the roots.
  • Wide brush: best suited when dyeing the full head of hair since the wide bristles cover a larger area.

Tinting brush and mixing bowl set:
- Using a mixing bowl is very helpful. On the one hand, you can mix the dye without causing a mess and on the other hand, mixing bowls are equipped with measurement indicators.

Protective gloves:
Be sure to protect your hands when dyeing the hair, as the oxidant in particular can be very damaging to the skin.

Hair clips and combs:
Use plastic hair clips to help section and secure the hair.
A tail comb allows you to separate the strands. Thus, the sections of hair can be divided and dyed accordingly. The finer the sections, the more uniform the results will be.

Salon cape:
Wear a salon cape or an old towel to protect clothing from stains that are difficult or sometimes impossible to wash out again.

Cell phone timer or egg timer:
Be sure to set a timer to adhere to the recommended exposure time.

Skin protection cream:
Prevents stain spots on the skin. The skin cream is primarily applied to the contours around the hairline, the ears and the neck.

Colour remover:
Stains on the skin are easily removed using a colour remover.

5 Colour treatment tips

Perform a strand test

It's a good idea to do a strand test before colouring your hair to see if you'll get the colour you want. Take a strand of hair that's not usually visible, apply the colour as directed, and see if the result meets your expectations. If you need more warmth or brightness, you can adjust accordingly. It may take some time, but doing a strand test will save you from any unpleasant surprises. Here are some detailed instructions on how to carry out the test.

01 Work section by section

Divide the hair into 4 neat sections for easier and cleaner application.

02 The right tool

Use the tip of the brush or a tail comb to coat small areas. If you prefer to dye with the applicator bottle, use the tip of the bottle to separate small sections for dyeing.

03 Lift the base

When dyeing the hair, hold thin strands of hair vertically to the head and work from top to bottom to ensure you completely cover the roots. When touching up the hair colour, make sure that the dye does not overlap with previously dyed hair.

04 Scanning

Not sure where to apply the dye? Feel your hair to be sure you are colouring the right area.

05 Check your work

It always helps to see what you are doing. Perform regular checks with a hand mirror throughout the application process.


We would like to expressly point out that these are recommendations. Therefore, carefully read and observe the description of the product being used that contains precise details about the application process, as well as important topics, such as skin intolerances, allergic reactions, etc.
