Coloring tip: It's a fact. The longer your hair is the older the ends are. Okay no news there. What may be news is that this makes them more porous and open to accepting hair dye. Which is why you want to get to them last if coloring at home. Otherwise they may end up darker than the rest of your strands leaving you with a final result that is well, interesting looking. Just not in a cute and sexy way.
That's not to say you're going to duplicate the salon experience at home any time soon exactly. But it also doesn't mean the over the bathroom sink approach can't be more enjoyable, or pleasant even, now does it?In other words we've come a long way, baby when it comes to coloring our hair.
