Homemade coloring has several pitfalls. First, the color stated on the package does not always match the result. Secondly, it is necessary to tint the hair very often, since the pigment that is not being natural is not held tightly on the strands.

Also on the result of staining can be affected by such factors:

  • Saturation of natural hair color - the lighter the original tone, the brighter the shade;
  • Structure of hair - soft and thin strands are painted much easier and quickly acquire a rich and deep shade;
  • Time of aging the coloring composition - for an intensive shade, the paint should be kept longer.

An alternative method of coloring bronze is the use of basma and henna .They can not hurt even with frequent use. Rather, on the contrary - strengthen your hair, make it supple and help get rid of dandruff. The only drawback - if you do not like the shade, getting rid of it will be incredibly difficult. If your hair has recently been exposed to chemical attack( staining with persistent paint or chemical perm), then it's better to forget about the mixture of henna and basma altogether - instead of the bronze color you will get green. Those who are willing to take risks, we offer two recipes.


Recipe 1.

  1. Mix henna and basma in a 2: 1 ratio.
  2. Add so much water that the consistency of the mixture resembles thick sour cream. If you do not guess with the proportion, then the solution will either flow, or will dry before the time.

Recipe 2.

  1. Connect one pack of basma with two packs of henna.
  2. Add 4 tablespoons of strong brewed coffee.
  3. Pour in a little kefir.

Then the mixture should be well mixed and evenly distributed over the strands. Will only wrap your head with a towel and wait up to 40 minutes.
