Changing your hair color is one of the easiest ways to get a fresh, new look. With natural hair, you have to be careful about which products you use when taking a DIY approach. You can’t use just any hair color product and hope for the best! Here are a few of the best hair colors for at home coloring.
1. Shea Moisture Hair Color System
A leader in the curly hair care world, Shea Moisture offers some of the best hair colors for at home coloring. They are free from harmful things you don’t want, such as sulfates and ammonia, and full of rich, vibrant color. Ranging from jet black to a honey blond, these are gentle on hair and a fan favorite.
2. Clairol Textures & Tones
Clairol has been one of the top names in the beauty world for decade after decade. With their collection of natural hair friendly colors, this is another one that doesn’t use ammonia in their formula. It has 14 different colors to choose from and offers great coverage for gray hairs.
3. John Frieda Precision Foam Colour for Gray Coverage
Speaking of gray hairs, this is the at-home go-to for full gray coverage. It is meant to give salon results without the salon cost and it lives up to that claim. It comes in a foam so it is pretty easy to apply, just make sure you have a towel on hand to avoid dripping.
4. Dark and Lovely Go Intense
This is a line that promises vibrant color without the use of bleach. Many hair lightening color products use ammonia in them and that can wreak havoc on the health of curls leaving them dry and brittle. With this product for at home coloring, the shades are highly pigmented to work with the undertones of your color so they catch the light in a highly reflective way.
5. eSalon Tinted Love Color Enhancing Treatment
This one isn’t so much an at-home dye job as is it a color enhancer. When you love your color, natural or otherwise, and want to bring out the intensity, this product is the answer. It even helps heal hair by giving it a boost of collagen!
Coloring at home doesn’t have to be second best to the salon. With these curly hair friendly products, change up your curls with beautiful results!
