Dyeing My Hair at Home – Classic Coffee Brown

I am absolutely in love with dyeing my hair. The only thing stopping me from doing it monthly is the irrational fear of my hair crumbling to it’s doom and falling off my head. But I’m exaggerating quite a bit. Straightening and heat processing is much more damaging than any amount of hair dye, but that’s not stopping me either, is it? I always seem to get the urge to cut off most of my hair every few years anyway. But I digress.

Let’s talk about the new hair color I’m trying out! I’ve been slowly adding in a few shades of highlight to my hair the past few months. I figure a few similar-colored highlights would look much more blended and dimensional than one or two shades. Well last month I made the mistake of going too light and I’ve kind of been hating my hair ever since. This week, I’m going back to my darker brown shades with Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ hair dye in Classic Coffee Brown.

Clairol Classic Coffee Brown Permanent Haircolor
The set comes with a permanent haircolor dye and a creme developer.

The dyeing process was super simple. I mixed the bottle of permanent hair dye with the creme developer in a bowl and applied it to the hair. You can just apply it directly without covering or anything. I wanted to add the color to most of my hair, but not on all strands, so I used aluminum foil for make a kind of dimensional highlight/lowlight effect.
