Achieve salon-quality results from a box by following these 7 simple tips.

1 Skip the shampoo

Don't wash for 24 hours before coloring, or you'll remove the natural oils that help protect your scalp from chemicals. (And rinse extra dye with water only—shampoo can strip color.)

2 But be sure to condition

Use a deep conditioning mask the day before you dye. It will help ward off any damage, and color looks more vibrant and deposits more evenly on moisturized hair.

3 Read the directions

Many women ignore them or just go by the pictures. Pay close attention to the processing time. Leaving dye on for even a few minutes too long can give very different results.

4 Don't go extreme

Never attempt to change your color to more than three shades lighter or darker than your natural base. To make a drastic change, the formula needs to be customized by a pro.

5 Buy extra dye

Pick up two kits: If your hair is very thick or long, one box may not be enough. If you don't use the second one, you should be able to return it to the store, or save it for the next time you color.

6 Do a strand test

It's the only way to see how the color will really develop on your hair. Snip a small section at the nape of your neck (where hair tends to be darkest) and apply the product as directed.

7 Apply color evenly

Divide your hair into four or five manageable sections using clips or elastics. Starting with the lower sections, unclip, apply the product generously from roots to ends, then move up to the next section.

Pick the Right Formula

Permanent dyes lift color from hair, then lighten or darken it one to two shades. They provide great gray coverage, but require upkeep to deal with root regrowth.

Demi-permanent will fade after about 25 shampoos, so roots are less of an issue.

Semipermanent is color-depositing only (you can't make hair lighter) and will wash out after four to eight shampoos.

Check the Box

The pictures on the back and side of the box will show how the color will develop on your hair.

Hair Color Dilemmas—Solved!

"I tried to change my strawberry-blonde hair to red and ended up looking like an orange crayon."

Anna-Charlotte Berryhill, Tulsa, OK

Pro pointer

Achieving the right shade of red is tricky. In general, warmer, lighter tones of red work better for natural blondes. Brunettes look best in cool shades with violet undertones. Next time, use semipermanent color so mistakes can be washed away.

"I dyed my hair and my ends looked much darker than my roots."

Candice Wilson, West Bloomfield, MI

Pro pointer

The tips of your hair tend to be more porous and dry, so they absorb color quickly. To avoid this in the future, apply color on ends during the last half of the recommended processing time.

"After I rinsed out my haircolor, I had a dark line all around the edge of my scalp."

Karen Sally, Atlanta

Pro pointer

Just as dye can tint your hair, it can stain your skin. Prevent this by swiping a thin layer of petroleum jelly onto the outermost edge of your hairline before coloring. This creates a barrier that dye can't penetrate.
