How to choose a hair colour?

The most important aspects to consider while selecting the best hair colour are the complexion of your skin and the natural colour of your hair. Always select a shade that is only a shade or two lighter or darker than your original hair colour so that when your roots grow, they are not easily visible.

Brands like Godrej Expert Rich Crème come in 5 amazing hair colours for ladies. They are naturally black, black-brown, dark brown, natural brown and burgundy, all ideal for the Indian skin tone. It is not only a hair colour without ammonia but also enriched with the goodness of aloe vera, making it one of the best hair colours in India.

When selecting hair colours to use at home, one has to take care in selecting safe and trustworthy products.

Its cream base allows easy application and prevents dripping or spillage, making it one of the best hair colours for black hair. It is an ammonia-free hair colour, hassle less, easy on the pocket, can be done in the comfort of your home and also gives great results.

How to hair colour at home?

A skin hypersensitivity test is strongly recommended each time before you colour your hair at home as a precautionary measure, even for regular users, to ensure a safe and pleasurable hair colouring experience. All the best hair colours in India have safety instructions and precautions mentioned on the pack in detail. The skin hypersensitivity test must be done 48 hours before application on the hair. To conduct the test, cleanse a small area of skin behind the ear or inner surface of the forearm using soap and water or alcohol. Mix a small quantity of colourant and developer, apply on previously cleansed skin and allow it to dry. Keep the product on for 48 hours and observe. If there is no reaction such as reddening, burning, itching, irritation or swelling in the area that the test was conducted on, then the product can be safely used.

How to apply hair colour?

  1. Select a shade from the range of shades offered.
  2. Do a skin hypersensitivity test 48 hours before application as mentioned above.
  3. Ensure your hair is clean and dry before application and put on your gloves.
  4. While using the single-use packs, open the pre-measured sachets and mix them in a bowl.
  5. Divide your hair into sections and apply the hair colour of your choice with a brush from root to tip. Leave it on for just 30 minutes and then rinse well with water for soft, beautiful, shiny hair.

This New Year, feel and look fabulous by trying these stylish hairdos with a hair colour that you always wanted to try.
