If you decide to slightly change your appearance and dye your hair a lighter tone, it's best to contact a specialist in the beauty salon. But if you do not have such an opportunity or desire, try making the coloring yourself.

- Hairbrush, brush, paint.
First of all, you need to choose the right paint. If you do not want the result to disappoint you, and your hair is too light, you better buy everything you need in a special store or hair salon. They usually only sell quality paint, which is used by professionals. Staining with such a means does not harm the structure of the hair and rarely gives an undesirable result. In addition, sellers will help you determine what the current shade of your hair is, and what color you should choose.
If you are going to dye your hair for the first time, you can buy a special clarifying agent. If they have already been painted, you will need a paint with color pigments, since simple lightening may not work.
All the tools needed for staining are usually attached to the paint. You only need a comb – a scallop and, possibly, a tassel (if it is not in the box), but you can do without it to color the whole head in one color.
Mix all necessary ingredients according to the instructions. Wear gloves that are sold complete with paint.
Comb your hair and gradually apply a paint on them from the roots to the tips. After all the strands are in the paint, comb them so that the product is distributed evenly. Wait for about forty minutes. Time is usually indicated in the instruction and can be different, depending on the facility itself. After that, see if the paint worked. If not, then wait another minute 5, but no more, and rinse off the paint. The final color will be visible after the hair has dried.
For too dark strands, you may need another staining procedure, which can be carried out no earlier than in 10 days, otherwise you will damage your hair.
To get it right the first time, you need to buy a very strong paint (with the appropriate mark on the package), but it is quite dangerous to use it, since an inexperienced person can overexpose and burn the hair.
