Hardly anything changes your type as much as a new hair colour. Cool blonde, fiery copper, velvety brown, with each colouring you slip into a new, exciting role. Or you could just stay the way you are. With covering dyes you can also conceal grey hair. It's no wonder that nearly two-thirds of people experiment with colour at least once in their lives. One in ten reach for tints or colouring on a monthly basis. Whether you're just testing the waters or you're already a colouring pro, you'll find fascinating colourings and tints for your hair at Afound.
For a permanent colour change you use a colouration. Their colour particles penetrate deep into the hair structure. So they change the colour from the inside out. Since they are trapped in the stratum corneum, they do not wash out. The same goes for brightening colourations. Here the hair is bleached by oxidation. The natural colour is therefore removed to a certain extent. Bleaching come in different strengths. They lighten your hair by one, two or more shades. Exactly what the end result will look like depends on your starting colour. Since colouration is permanent, you should be relatively sure of the shade. Tip: Test out strong changes with a tint first!
With an intensive tint you achieve equally brilliant colour results, but only for red or brown hair. You can't lighten your hair with a tint. Unlike a colouration, it does not penetrate the hair, but lays on the surface like a film. This does not attack the hair structure, so at the same time is more gentle. And it washes out. With an intensive tint you can experiment a little more. Because it doesn't last as long. Within 6-8 weeks an intensive tint is usually washed out. This makes it ideal
to test whether you like a shade at all.
to give your hair exciting reflections and shine.
For the cautious and short-term new looks, there are tints. They don't last as long as an intensive tint. This makes them ideal for extreme colour experiments. Want to transform into a redhead for the holidays or add sassy accents during the carnival season? Then these products are ideal. After a few washes you will be back to your original colour.
Plant-based hair dye
Plant-based hair dyes are something for those who value natural ingredients. You can give your hair expressive warmer, cooler or darker shades with plant-based colours. Unlike conventional colourations and tints, they do without synthetic and oxidative active ingredients. This means that, like a tint, they do not lighten. However, they don't wash out either. The colour consists of finely ground pigments of plant origin. So the products come mostly in the form of a powder that you mix yourself with water. This has the advantage that you can save a pack of plant-based dye to re-dye the roots.
Whether you want to colour permanently or experiment first, there is a colouring product for everyone. Choose from permanent colourations, wash-out tints or natural plant-based hair dyes among our deals!
Tints wash out within a few weeks. In the process, the colour fades gradually, so there is no harsh regrowth. Only with permanent hair dyes, i.e. colourations and plant-based dyes, does a visible regrowth occurs. Hair grows on average about one centimetre per month. So, after this time, regrowth is visible. How noticeable it is depends on how different the colouration is from your natural hair colour.
What do I need to dye my hair?
A large towel that can get colour stains on it.
A brush to carefully detangle your hair before applying.
A handle comb, with which you separate individual strands.
Gloves for application (usually included with the product).
For longer hair, hair clips to hold strands together that have already been dyed. While the dye is working, you should pin your hair up with a clip before it goes under the cap.
A plastic cap (usually included with the product) for the exposure time. It keeps the hair warm and intensifies the dyeing result.
A wash cloth to remove the colour from your skin. This is best done with lukewarm soapy water.
Why does hair dye burn on the head?
Hair dye should not burn on the head! If your scalp burns, itches, swells, reddens or feels hot after application, you are probably having an allergic reaction. Wash the product out thoroughly immediately and ask your doctor for advice!
