To color your hair using Matrix hair color, you need Matrix dye and Matrix cream developer. Other supplies needed include hair conditioner, a shower cape, a comb, a dye brush, an old towel, a usable towel, disposable gloves, a plastic mixing bowl, cool water and a mirror.
- Mix dye
Although most Matrix products are mixed in the ratio 1:1, refer to the packaging for the correct mixing ratio before mixing. Mix the Matrix hair dye with the Matrix cream developer in the mixing bowl, and stir using a dye brush until they are completely mixed.
- Comb your hair
Comb your hair to disentangle the hair strands to ensure that a single strand is not left without dye.
- Apply the dye
Wear the disposable gloves, and cover the area around your shoulders with an old towel. Use the dye brush to apply the dye as you monitor your progress in the mirror. Use your fingers where the brush is inefficient to ensure that the dye reaches all the hair. Cover your hair with a shower cape, and allow the dye to process the hair. Keep checking as your hair gradually changes in color.
- Rinse your hair
After the dye has processed hair to your desired color, remove the shower cap, and rinse your hair with cold water until the water runs clear.
- Apply hair conditioner
Apply the hair conditioner to keep your hair healthy. Dry hair with a clean towel, and style it.
