Best hair colour brands

Using colour-changing hair dyes is actually more about science than hairdressing. It's not a matter of finding the best brand of hair colours or bleach as such, but more about finding the right hair colouring products for what you want to achieve and applying them correctly. In addition, you also want the best hair care products, such as toners, removers, colour shampoos, colour conditioners, and other products, to keep those results over a longer period of time.

At Hairhouse, you'll find a wide range of top-quality hair colouring products, including semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent colours. Top brand names, each featuring a large selection of hair dye colours, include:

Permanent hair colours can be applied at home, while some recommend professional use only. Eslabondexx is a popular hair dye used in salons, so if you don't want to colour your own hair, the professional hairdressers at your local hair salon can colour your hair for you. Other hair colour brands are designed for home use and usually involve applying to clean, wet hair and leaving it to process for the required amount of time before rinsing out.

Best at-home hair colour

If you are looking for a temporary colour to make a statement or add a little oomph to your natural hair colour, Dare and Manic Panic have some fabulously fun shades to play with. Try Dare's Flamingo Feather if you're a pink kind of girl, or Forest Fairy if you want your friends to be green with envy when they see your new look. An at-home Dare dye job will last between 5 and 30 washes. And when it's washed out, there are plenty more gorgeous colours to try next.

Manic Panic hair colours are vegan, semi-permanent hair dyes designed to last four to six weeks. They have an exciting range of bold and beautiful shades to temporarily colour your hair in rich red tones such as Vampire Red and Pillarbox Red, along with many brilliant blues, purples, greens, pinks, and even a bright and sunny shade of yellow.

If you're wanting to apply a colour that is a little less bold, you can easily take your natural hair colour a few shades lighter or darker with any of the easy-to-use, long-lasting semi-permanent colour or permanent hair colouring products sold online and in-store at Hairhouse. Goldwell, Wella, L'Oreal Paris, Schwarzkopf, Fudge, and Revlon all have beautiful shades of blonde, ash blonde, dark blonde, light ash brown, light brown, medium brown, and dark brown, which are ammonia-free and peroxide-free to take your hair a few shades lighter or darker without stripping the hair cuticle of natural oils.

Of course, some of you might be looking to join the latest trend in pastel colour. With Alfaparf’s Revolution, you have access to your favourite pastel tints, so you can stun all your friends with your latest look!

An easy way to maintain more colour in your hair is by using a shampoo and conditioner with added pigments, such as the Alfaparf range infused with ultra-concentrated pigments. Semi-permanent hair colours will wash out, but maintaining your hair by washing only when needed, and using shampoo and conditioner designed for coloured hair will help prolong the life of your colour. To manage regrowth, use a retouch or touch-up product that covers roots in a shade matching your hair colour.

Colours you can dye your hair

It is a good idea to do a strand test if you are colouring your hair for the first time or trying a hair dye you haven't used before. Skincare is important, as some people may be sensitive to certain ingredients in hair colour. Hi Lift gloves are made to minimise contact with your skin while lightening or darkening your hair.

As long as you are mixing the formula and applying the dye to your hair in accordance with the instructions, you can colour your hair to any shade on the colour chart. Popular hair dyes include blue, red, and pink shades, while blondes, ash greys, copper, mahogany browns, golden browns and blacks are always in fashion.

Aside from the hundreds of hair colours you can choose from, some colours will also come with their own applicator. If you have struggled to apply hair dye, these applicators can certainly come in handy.

What you should know about red hair dye

When it comes to red hair dye, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, red hair dye will only work on hair that is light enough to begin with. This means that if you have dark hair, you'll need to use a bleaching agent first to achieve the desired result. Once your hair is light enough, you can choose from a range of red hues, from bright crimson to deep mahogany. If you want to experiment with red hair dye, it's best to start with a semi-permanent or temporary formula, as these will be less damaging to your hair and easier to change if you're not happy with the results. Whatever shade you choose, remember that red hair dye requires more upkeep than other colours, so be prepared to touch up your roots every few weeks.

Everything about blonde hair dye

From icy platinum to sunny gold, there is a range of shades of blonde hair dye to choose from. And while colouring your hair blonde may seem like a simple process, there are a few things you should keep in mind before you reach for the bleach. First, it's important to know your hair type. If your hair is healthy and not too damaged, you can pretty much dye it any shade of blonde you want. However, if your hair is brittle or dry, it's best to stick to a lighter shade. Bleach can be harsh on your locks, so it's important to use a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair healthy and hydrated.

If you're looking for a classic blonde shade, then ash or platinum blonde may be the right choice for you. For something a little more modern, try sandy, beige, or light blonde. Or, if you want to make a statement, go for honey or golden blonde. No matter what your preference, there's sure to be a blonde hair colour that's perfect for you.

Light brown hair colour

If you have very dark hair to begin with, you might want to try out a light brown hair colour. Light brown hair is a versatile hair colour that anyone can wear. It is perfect for those with fair skin, as it adds a touch of warmth and depth to the complexion. It can also be worn by those with olive skin, as it helps to brighten up the overall tone. Light brown hair colours also look great on those with dark skin as they provide a beautiful contrast. Whether you're looking to go lighter or darker, light brown hair is definitely a great option.

Dark hair colours

Lastly, dark hair colours are a great choice if you are looking to go back to your natural colour or if you just want a bit of a change, as they can be more easily applied to any hair colour. However, be aware that once you dye your hair with dark hair colours, it can be more difficult to go back to a lighter colour, and you may be required to bleach your hair.

Safe hair colours

Many hair dyes are now ammonia and peroxide-free, so they are gentler on your hair and scalp. At Hairhouse, these brands include Revlon Professional, Dare, Goldwell, Manic Panic, and Fudge, amongst others. If you have a sensitive scalp or are prone to allergies, Wella Koleston Perfect is an innovative product using specialised technology to reduce the risk of allergic reactions. It provides 100% grey coverage and up to five levels of colour lift.

When dyeing your hair, it is always a good idea to get some products for colour-treated hair. After all, you want to ensure your hair keeps that vibrant colour as long as possible. Of course, some professional hair styling tools will go a long way to keep your hair in excellent condition, even after colouring!

Best permanent hair colours

All the top brand permanent hair colours contain conditioning ingredients to nourish and protect the hair. Wella, Eslabondexx, Revlon Professional, Colour Royale, and others are specially formulated to help preserve your new colour as long as possible while protecting and strengthening the hair to give it more colour intensity, vibrant shine, and bounce. Eslabondexx is renowned for its deep conditioning properties and superior level of hair protection.

These permanent hair colours won't wash out. They will remain in the hair until they grow out, which means it is important to use shampoo and conditioner designed to extend the life of your colour, reducing fading as well as yellow or orange tones. If your hair is lightened, purple shampoos and conditioners are designed to correct yellow tones that occur over time in blonde hair.
