Coloring hair at home
Tue, 04-23-2013 - 10:55am

I'm in serious need of getting my hair colored.  My grey hairs are showing something fierce!  However, money is tight around our house right now and I feel super guilty spending any extra on myself at the moment.  I've never colored my hair at home before but I think I'm going to have to give it a try.  Any suggestions for a newbie? :)

Hi Faith, I've been coloring my hair at home for years. It is a scary thought at first, but I think it will be easier than it sounds. I'd suggest selecting a color that is close to what you have now, and be sure to follow all the directions in the package. I think it would be a great idea to follow the testing directions first. Wishing you the best of luck- let us know how it goes!
