50 Amazing Inspiration Ideas for Your Strawberry Blonde Hair
Tips for Dyeing Your Hair Strawberry Blonde the DIY Way
If you are thinking about dyeing your hair strawberry blonde the DIY way, there are a few tips you should know about to make sure the process goes smoothly. First, take into consideration the color your hair is before you begin the process. If your natural hair is a darker shade, you will likely get subtler strawberry blonde tone than someone that has light hair to start with. Also, if you already have color-treated hair or highlights the color you are using could react to what is already in your hair. If your hair is blonde or you have blonde highlights, it is a good idea to start with less red dye in your mixture and add in more as necessary. The next tip is also related to the mixture you will be making to color your hair. Do not be disappointed if the color you get the first time is not the desired look. A lot of times when you attempt to dye your hair yourself, you have to tweak the mixture to get the look you desire. The last tip is to do with maintenance once your hair is colored. Be sure to use a sulfate-free shampoo to keep your color lasting longer! Follow these tips to get the best dye for the strawberry blonde hairstyle!
