How to Fix Hair Dye Mistakes

Few people love the hair colour they have while others tend to change it. When you are applying these chemicals on your hair, it is common that you might mistakenly put on the wrong colour or the colour you have applied was not the one you were seeking. You may like a shade of hair colour after looking at the model’s hair on the box. However,  it may not even resemble the shade of that model’s hair in reality. In such cases, you will have around two to three days to fix it.

Things Required:

– Prell shampoo
– Semi-permanent hair colour
– Hair highlighting kit
– Virgin olive oil
