What Do I Need?

How Should I Do It?
First, you are not suggested to wash your hair right before coloring. The freshly washed hair will not have any protective barrier which function to prevent the irritation. Second, you are suggested to wear a button down shirt which is quite comfortable for you. After all of the preparations are done, you can start doing the strand test.
Before applying the color directly all over your head, it will be much better if you firstly tests it out, especially on a not noticeable strand. You can apply the desired color on your inconspicuous hair strand, for example the one behind your ear. You should wrap the colored hair using aluminium foil in order to separate it from the rest of your hair and wait for half an hour. Finally, rinse the strand and dry it properly. Put the tested hair on the white paper so that you can clearly see its color. If it suits you, then you can apply the color all over the rest of your hair.
If you want to have the best result, firstly you should protect your skin around the hairline from staining by rubbing the petroleum jelly around it. It is very useful to help you wipe any dye that accidentally gets on your skin easily with a facial wipe. Make sure that you have used your gloves when you shake the VS developer cream bottle in order to mix the content with the VS color creme.
Next, to make you easily color each strand of your hair, you are suggested to divide your hair into several sections, ideally four, depending on Yu hair thickness and length. You can directly apply the color to each section, starting from the roots down to the shaft of your hair. Do the same method until all sections are perfectly colored. Let it sit for about half an hour, and then rinse your hair with warm water until you do not find any color or bubbles in the water.
Dry your hair gently using towels and fix the tangles using a large tooth comb. Apply some conditioner and let it sit for five minutes only. Rinse it again uses the warm water as well. Finally, dry your hair using a blower or a hair dryer and style it as you wish!
If you think that the color is too dark, you can rinse it again using shampoo. However, do not shampoo it every day, since the water’s minerals can negatively affect the color longevity. Therefore, you are suggested to rinse it every other day or once in three days. If you want to make the color long lasting, you can also apply a conditioner, too.
