If you want to make a coloring shampoo for colored hair at home, you can use the following method:
- Colorless shampoo or hair conditioner
- Pigment in the color you want to add to the shampoo (you can use hair pigments that are sold in cosmetics stores or specialized online stores)
Here are the steps you can follow:
- Start with a small amount of shampoo or hair conditioner. If you want to make a larger amount of shampoo, you can proportionally increase the ratio of ingredients.
- Add a small amount of pigment of the color you wish to obtain. Start with a small amount and gradually add more until you achieve the desired shade. Mix well to obtain a uniform emulsion.
- Test the color of the mixture by applying it to a small section of hair. If the color is too weak or does not meet your expectations, add more pigment and mix well.
- Once you have achieved the desired shade, transfer the mixture into a suitable container, such as an empty shampoo or conditioner bottle, with a cap or pump for ease of use.
- Close the package and shake it well to distribute the pigment evenly in the shampoo.
- Use the coloring shampoo by applying it to damp hair with a gentle massage. Leave it on for a few minutes (the duration may vary depending on the intensity of the color you want to achieve). Then rinse thoroughly with water.
Important: remember that the result may vary depending on the way you dye your hair and the color you currently have. Color shampoo is usually a temporary solution and the color will start to wash off with each hair rinse. In this way, you can refresh and maintain the color of dyed hair for the time between dyeing procedures.
Tip: It is advisable to always start with smaller amounts of pigment and test on a section of hair to see the result and adjust the amount according to your needs. If the color is too weak, you can add more pigment. If the color is too saturated, you can dilute the mixture with more shampoo or conditioner.
Important: be careful when adding the pigment so you don’t overdo it and get an overly saturated or unnatural color.
