What is “light dyeing” that does not dye exactly?
“It takes a lot of time and effort to dye evenly. That’s what Yuko Obe (63 years old) from Harutomo told me.
The method of dyeing gray hair is to roughly rub the hair dye into the hair and wash it off earlier than the designated dyeing time.
Since it is not dyed uniformly, even if gray hair grows, it is not noticeable, and the number of dyeing times can be reduced. “My hair is less frizzy than before,” says Obe. Noriko Motoyama, a hair diagnostician, says, “Because the dyeing time is short, the burden of the dye has been reduced.”
“Treatment at home will further reduce damage to your hair, especially the day before or on the day you dye your hair,” advises total beauty advisor Chigaya Miki.
Halmek named this method of dyeing, which is easy to dye and is good for healthy hair, as “light dyeing”. I will explain how to do it.
Advantages of light dyeing
Creates a three-dimensional finish that looks like you’ve added highlights (partially brightening your hair) at a beauty salon. Random dyeing creates light and dark areas, and the bright areas look glossy.
- Easy to dye, can be done in a short time
- Gray hair is less noticeable and the frequency of gray hair dyeing is reduced
- Reduce the burden on your hair and make it healthier
- Gives a natural finish
If it’s a light dye, it’s so natural even after a month!
Although some white hairs have sprouted in places such as around the ears, they are already unevenly dyed so they don’t stand out. “I dye my hair about once every month and a half. I dye it when I cut my hair.”
A new proposal for home dyeing, the method of “shallow dyeing”
The light dyeing method is simple. Simply apply the cream-like dye starting from areas where gray hair stands out, such as the hairline and sideburns, and apply it to the ends and the entire hair. If there are other areas of concern, such as the top of the head or behind the ears, it is okay to apply them first.
There are two points. One is to avoid dyeing the skin so as not to damage the scalp. “When you dye your hairline, it’s a good idea to stand your hair up,” says Miki. The other is to shorten the dyeing time. If the dye is specified for 15 minutes, it is recommended to wash it off in 10 minutes.
Mr. Obe says: “Since I dyed my hair lightly, I have less time and frequency to dye it, and it has become easier. , I don’t feel stressed.”I’m going to do it” and “I’m doing it on purpose” look and feel different, don’t you think?”
“Light dyeing” procedure
1. Pour the dye into a container and mix
. Use a cream type colorant that does not easily drip onto the skin. Since it does not dye evenly, a small amount of coloring agent is sufficient.
2. Take the dye on the brush and apply
it to the hairline. Keep your hair upright so that the dye does not touch your skin.
3. Lightly massage the roots with gloves and let it blend into the ends
. Rub the dye with gloves so that it does not touch the skin. After rubbing it into the roots, apply the dye to the ends of your hair.
4. Apply the dye to the sideburns and apply it to the ends of the hair with gloves.
Just like with the hairline, apply the dye with a brush and then rub it in with the gloves to blend it into the ends of the hair.
5. Apply the dye on your hair and wash it off after about 10 minutes Apply the
dye all over with gloves and wash it off. The dyeing speed changes depending on the temperature, so adjust the dyeing time by shortening it in the summer and lengthening it in the winter.
