if you are going to color at home best way to color is cross section. Where you section the hair into four parts in a form of a cross. Color the cross parting and start from the front working yourself back. I recommend this because You won’t miss to color your re growth.

Consider asking your local hairstylist on how to dye your hair and about what’s best to use as a colour because they will always give you best tips. Keep in mind that light colours want be effective on dark hair. Obey the ratio, because if not you may end up with a scalp reaction or hair breakage. However you will find it in a paper in the colour’s box it’s self.

Therefore you should be safe IF you follow all the steps on the paper and consider asking a hairstylist before colouring. Although if you’re not professional I will suggest doing your hair colour at the salon. If there’s any questions don’t hesitate to ask me.
