Factors to consider while colouring your hair at home:

If hair colour at home looks intimidating to you, then worry not. It is a really easy process and you can cover your greys at home in just 30 minutes using Godrej Expert Rich Crème hair colour. 

    1. Prepare your hair 24 hours in advance: Before you plan to do hair colour at home, it is advisable to shampoo your hair properly. Ensure your hair is clean and there is no built-up of hair care or styling products like hair serum, oil or creams. Even after shampoo avoid using hair serum or conditioner. Save it for the after-colouring hair care routine.
    2. Don’t colour your eyebrows and eyelashes: Some people are such fashion freaks that they wish to match their eyebrow and eyelash colour with the hair colour. But you should strictly refrain yourself from using hair colour on your eyes. Even if the hair colour comes in contact with your eyes, you should thoroughly rinse the eyes with water.
    3. Percentage of grey hair: According to the number of greys on your scalp, you can decide if you wish to colour the entire scalp to cover the greys or just root touch-up to merge the greys with the mane. Our rich crème hair colour is a great product for 100% grey hair coverage. It can be used for global coverage as well as for root touch up at home. At the time of root touch up, the same shade of hair colour for women should be chosen as used previously.
    4. Proper sectioning: The more you section your hair, the better would be the resultant hair colour for ladies. Run a tail comb from the front of your head to the back end and split your hair into two. Then depending on the thickness of your hair, further split each section into 2-3 more sections. Tie each section with a clip. Untie section one by one and keep applying the hair colour. Just remember to work your way from front to back.
    5. Set an alarm for hair colouring: Many women believe that keeping the hair colour for longer would give them a perfectly coloured mane. However, that’s not true. The at-home hair colour should be allowed to sit only for the stipulated time mentioned on the box of hair colour for women. Godrej Expert Rich Crème hair colour should be kept for 30 minutes for a perfect natural shade of hair colour. Similarly, keeping the hair colour for lesser time would not give you the desired results. So, keep a track of the time or set an alarm for 30 minutes after you finish applying the hair colour. Our hair colour ensures 100% grey hair coverage in a single session only. 

How to protect the hair colour and take care of coloured hair?

Natural shades of hair colour for ladies are evergreen and beautiful. If you wish to maintain the shine of the hair and keep your hair healthy, then you must take care of the following points:

  1. Use a conditioner after hair colouring: Condition your hair after colouring them. Use a gentle colour-protect conditioner which would lock in the hair colour for women. It will also make the hair colour stay longer and keep the hair soft and shiny. You can also oil your hair the same night you coloured your tresses and leave it overnight. This will add a natural shine to your hair.
  2. Stay away from chlorinated water in the pools: If you have freshly coloured your hair then it is best to avoid chlorinated water for some time. The freshly coloured hair is susceptible to reacting with the chlorinated water and spoiling the hair colour. So, it is best to avoid the chlorinated water. Even if you wish to enter the pool, then oil your hair or apply a conditioner properly and then enter the pool. The oil on hair will shield the hair from harmful effects of chlorinated water. This will avoid damage to the hair and keep it healthy too. You can also wear a swimming cap for extra protection.
  3. No shampoo immediately after hair colouring: Shampooing the hair leads to fading of hair colour for women. You should ideally wait for 24 hours before you start using shampoo on the hair. Also, prefer using shampoo that is specially curated for colour treated hair. This will slow down the fading of hair colour for women and maintain the colour for longer time too.
  4. Regular touch-ups: If you follow all the above points, then the hair colour for women would fade slower. Doing root touch-ups at home regularly will keep hair colour for ladies as good as fresh. Hair colouring at home is really easy with the best hair colour for women in India – the all-new Godrej Expert Rich Crème Hair Colour. So, use it whenever you find grey strands cropping up or your grey roots growing out.
  5. Avoid sun and UV rays: The scorching sun rays is harmful not just for the coloured hair but your hair health in general too. The heat and harmful UV rays from the sun can damage the hair roots and alter the hair colour too.  So, wear a scarf around your hair and shield your colour from any damage.
  6. Avoid Heat styling: Hair dryers, hair straightening rods and curling rods expel a lot of heat to style your hair a particular way. As discussed above, the heat can alter the hair colour for women and the quality of hair too. It makes your hair frizzy too. So, they are best avoided.
