How to colour your hair | Life Pharmacy 

Colouring your hair at home is a great wallet-friendly way to keep your hair looking and feeling its best. Here are Life Pharmacy’s top tips for colouring hair.

For a natural result, choose a hair dye within two shades of your natural hair colour. Always compare your natural hair colour with the colour guide on the back of the hair dye pack. We recommend you perform a patch test 48 hours before you dye your hair to make sure you have no adverse reactions. A strand test before colouring your full head of hair is also a good idea.

Hair grows about 1cm a month, so after 4-6 weeks it's time to deal with that regrowth through a hair colouring touch up. Coloured hair maintenance also requires a good sulphate-free shampoo. This will cleanse without stripping, fading or dulling your hair and should also improve the shine of your hair colour.
