Auburn hair is essentially a deep brown color with a reddish undertone. Auburn ranges in shades from light to dark and from brilliant to just a hint of red. When coloring your auburn hair any other color, it can be difficult to cover up those reddish tones. There are several types of hair color on the market, and many are found in beauty-supply stores or drugstores. Transition your hair from auburn to dark brown with at-home boxed hair color instead of visiting a salon. The finish will be comparable to a stylist, but much less expensive.
Mix the semi-permanent dark brown hair color in ash according to the manufacturer’s directions. Ash tones are cool and combat the warm tones found in auburn hair.
Drape a towel over your shoulders to protect your clothing. Make sure your hair has not been washed for at least 24 hours and is free of styling products like hairspray or gel.
Apply the hair color, wearing gloves to protect your skin, all over your head from root to tips. Avoid getting the color on your scalp.
Pile your hair on top of your head. Wrap a piece of plastic cling wrap snugly around your head to keep the hair in place. Let the dye set for 15 minutes or according to the manufacturer’s directions.
Rinse your hair with cool water until the water runs clear. Condition your tresses with the provided conditioner in the hair color box. Any sulfate-free conditioner will also work. Rinse your hair with cool water.
