MY CARAMEL HAIR COLOR:
In this, 2 part hair tutorial, I’m going to show you how I color my hair at home to get a warm, caramel brown color using the Clairol dye that you can get from the drugstore. I get asked about my hair color in “every single video,” so here is how you can easily dye your hair at home to get similar results.
In the first DIY video, I’m using the Clairol’s Age Defy, a permanent hair color made especially for aging hair, to cover my VERY resistant grays and to warm up, and lighten my level 4 black hair to a level 6, chocolate brown hair.
I love Age Defy because it not only covered my stubborn grays completely, but it also took care of other signs of aging hair like dry, dull and wiry hair. Clairol’s Age Defy develops into such a vibrant and natural looking hair color, I’m beyond impressed, to say the least.
If you have hard to color, resistant grays then you’re going to absolutely love this new line of home hair color from Clairol.
Even if you don’t have any grays, you can still use the Age Defy. In fact, this line of color should be more hydrating than your average permanent hair dyes, since it’s formulated for aging hair. You’ll find Age Defy a very rich and hydrating hair color.
With that said, always remember to check the back of the box to see your color results. We all have different hair colors and hair history, so results will vary.
Please don’t buy every shade I use and expect to get the same caramel hair color. Our natural hair color is different, therefore, you will need to adjust the formulation.
Do buy the same line just not the same colors, k? If you’re not sure, just call the 1-800 number Clairol has on their website, so the pro’s at Clairol can assist you in picking out the correct shades for you.
In the second video, placed on the Clairol’s channel (link at the top), I’m going to show you how to tone your hair with a demi hair color to create an ombre hairstyle. This trick will only work if your ends are already light. If you have black hair from the roots to the ends of your hair, then you’ll need to highlight it before applying the hair color.
One of these days, when I actually need to bleach my hair again, I’ll show you how to highlight your own hair at home. Since I didn’t want to damage my hair unnecessarily, we’re skipping the highlighting part today.
To show my true hair color, I’m not wearing hair extensions in both videos.
