You colored your hair and your hair is now too light? Discover our 5 tips to correct a color that is too light.

1) Apply a darker shade to your hair

Be careful not to end up with the opposite problem: having to correct a color that is too dark. The trick is to let the color set only half the time suggested on the box. Check the result every five minutes or so. When you feel your hair has reached the desired shade, rinse. Tip to remember? Opt for a hair color of the same brand used initially because it will probably contain similar ingredients.

2) Choose a color full of nutrients

To make your hair color darker, be sure to choose a color that will not make your hair fibre too sensitive. In other words, use a color cream with nourishing formula enriched with oils like that of Nutrisse, formulated with grape seed oil.

3) Prevent other hair dye mistakes

For a natural-looking color, keep in mind the rule of two: do not exceed your "real" color by two tones. And while you're at it, make sure to choose formulas that ensure perfect coverage of grey hair.

Quick Tip: Take a picture of the box of your new favourite color.

4) Pamper your hair

Be sure to pamper your hair with shampoos and conditioners designed for colored hair. Prolong your color and hydrate your hair by using the conditioner contained in the box. Nutrisse's Color Cream conditioner is enriched with nourishing ingredients such as, avocado, olive and shea butter oils. Don’t hesitate to use it as a mask and to prolong the setting time.

5) Test before going forward

Always test your color to see if you like it. Before officially saying "Yes, I want it!", color only a strand from the centre of your hair. Leave for the prescribed setting time, rinse and wait 24 hours before deciding.
