Have you ever noticed a band line in your hair after dyeing it? One of the most common mistakes women who color their hair at home make is overlapping the dye and putting it past the regrowth, resulting in a visible line in the hair. These lines are known as "bands." Brown-haired beauties are more likely to have blackish bands, redheads are more likely to have bands that turn too brown, and blondes, depending on the kind, are more likely to have that.
If you are one of the many who have firsthand experience with this, it is time to create a band-free experience!

Skin and Space Preparation
Don't begin coloring your hair until you've carefully set up an area with everything you need. Gather all of your setup necessities, such as petroleum jelly, combs, clips, color, developer, an old shirt, gloves, and towels. Apply petroleum jelly on your hairline, ears, neck, and sides of your cheeks. That may seem excessive, but quick contact causes hair to slip and discolor. Cover the floor where you are standing with old towels or towels that match the color you will be using. If you're sloppy like me, put on an old t-shirt and line your neck with a towel to catch any spilled color or product.
Section Your Hair
Comb your hair into small sections, the thinner the better. One-fourth of an inch is a good starting point. You should be able to see practically through the section. After you've parted your hair, it's time to mix your color. Remember to avoid using a metal bowl or whisk because metal can react with hair color. Mix according to the package directions, making sure the color is smooth. It never hurts to have some extra color on hand to mix more if necessary, rather than not having enough.
When you start at the bottom, it's easier to avoid overlaying color on previously colored hair. Begin at the nape of the neck and work your way up to the crown and hairline. It is critical to apply the color just to the regrowth to achieve seamless integration and avoid unintended color bands. Take your time and be patient. It's critical to avoid getting root color on your ends, especially if they're lighter.
The More You Understand
- It can be useful to have a friend apply the color to regions you can't see. Otherwise, only do what you can see in the mirror to avoid overlapping the color.
- Start the timer after you've colored all of the parts.
- Do not use a plastic bag to shorten the processing time. Color can be transferred to locations other than your roots when plastic reacts with it.
- Massage your hairline, nape, and behind your ears thoroughly to remove any pigment that has stained your skin.
- Use organic roots shampoo and conditioner to make your color last longer.
