Hair dye is used to colour the hair. Hair dye is primarily used by women, but some men also dye their hair.

What hair colours can you buy at beautycos.co.uk?
There are hair colours from many different brands, and the colour options are almost infinite, so it's hard to find out which colour to use. To make it more clear to find the right hair colour, manufacturers use numbers for each colour. The numbers must be read in the sense that 1 means dark hair and 10 are bright blond hair. The numbers after the comma show the exact shade of the colour. The best thing you can do is find out which brand you want to have hair colour from, and then google an overview of which color belongs to the color number. At beautycos.co.uk you can find hair colours from many popular brands, such as L'Oréal, Wella, Redken, Goldwell Elumen, ALFAPARF and many others.
If you're in doubt, call us or send us an email. Alternatively, ask your hairdresser for advice on what hair colour they can recommend you to use, as most hairdressers have a lot of hair dyeing experience.
Tips for you who are considering coloring your hair
Take the time to find the right colour. Whether you dye your hair or go to a professional salon, it's important not to regret if your hair is dyed with permanent hair dye, as you can not just go back to the old colour. Please try. with non-permanent hair colour first, where you get a few weeks to evaluate if you like your new hair colour.
Choose a quality hair dye to get the highest score for the result you're hoping for. Like many other products, you get what you pay for when it comes to hair dye.
If you dye your hair yourself, follow the instructions to the point. Use the right amount of ingredients as described in the description and use a timer to ensure that the colour is in your hair exactly the time it takes.
If you want highlights or drastic change of hair colour, then seek professional help. It is often through these transformations that it goes wrong, and it ends with discolored hair, such as green or orange. If you dye your hair yourself, it's recommended that you stay close to your existing hair color, and not try to switch from, for example, blond to dark hair, or vice versa dark to blonde, which is one of the hardest changes to get a good result out of.
If you have dyed the hair yourself and the colour is completely wrong or the hair has been damaged, then seek professional help. You should not try to correct the problem yourself as it will often make it worse.
You should not dye your hair too often as hair colour is hard for your hair. Wait at least 3 to 6 months between hair dyes, and only dye the hair roots in between, if necessary.
Do not use regular hair products. The shampoo you usually use can often damage dyed hair, or quickly wash the hair colour out. It is important to choose shampoo, conditioner and styling products that are gentle and intended for use on dyed hair. See more in the next section for some good opportunities.
