Today we’re gonna talk about hair colour and how to dye your hair. We don’t always realise it but hair colour is an art and a science. It’s all about chemistry and finding the right balance of products. This is why you have to be extra careful when dyeing your hair at home. Get it wrong, and you can do more harm than good. So if you can wait it out, please try to wait until you can get it done by a professional.


Our hair colourists are all experts who’ve mastered the art of colouring. And we wanted to share our colouring secrets with you to avoid any disappointment.

There are many factors that can impact your desired hair colour:



There’s a high probability that there will be colour pigments left in your hair, even if that colour was applied months ago. This will affect the results.


The texture and porosity of your hair affects the way your hair absorbs moistures and hair dyes. If your hair has low porosity, there’s less chances that they hair dye will take on your hair, it can also fade quicker.


Chemical treatments can be bleaching your hair, hair dye or any other chemical products used into your hair and it can be damaging if not done properly, or too many times.


When you put heat on your hair without protections, it can weaken your hair and break them. Try to use lower temperatures and protective products before exposing your hair to heat.


Stress and hormones affects your body, it can also affects the way you are eating or sleeping, and weaken your hair too.

These are all factors that have to be assessed by your colourist as they can have an affect on how your hair takes the colour.


You may have tried to colour your hair at home during the lockdown. Don’t worry. Our hair colourists are experts in the field and will still be able to catch up.

To have the best results possible at your next appointment, it is essential that you tell your hairdresser everything you’ve done: from what colour and/or bleach you applied, for how long it was put on, to how many times you had any kind of chemicals applied etc.
