4 min read


For those who usually dye their hair, we recommend that you apply the product to all your hair and not only to your root, to get a more uniform and shining look. 

Phyto gathers in Phytocolor permanent coloring without ammonia in several colors so you can find the one that best suits your preferences. For instance, the formula with vegetable pigments, and without ammonia or resorcin, ensures perfect coverage of white hair. You just have one job - to choose your favorite color and follow the instructions!

Some advice and tips on how to choose the color and apply


To choose the desired color, you must take into account the numbering included in the packages, and the first digit corresponds to the base color, the lowest being the darkest and the highest the lighter. In the case of Phyto color, 1 is Black and 10 is extremely light blonde. If it has a second digit, it represents the primary reflexes; if it doesn't, the color has none. The third digit corresponds to the depth of the reflexes.

How-to-apply guide


Always undertake a test to determine whether you are allergic to the product before applying it; the test should be done 48 hours before coloring. A thin layer of coloring cream should be applied, with the help of a cotton swab, about 1cm2 behind the ear. Repeat the application 2 or 3 times, allowing it to dry between applications, and wait 48 hours. If you do not notice any abnormal reaction, such as redness, irritation, or even swelling, you can apply the product afterward. To apply, you should put gloves on and a towel over your shoulders to protect your clothes. Then shake the application bottle and pierce the tube of the coloring cream, using the lid itself. Next, pour the right amount of the product into the application bottle. Close the application bottle and stir until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Cut the tip of the applicator with scissors and apply it to small sections of the hair to ensure a homogeneous distribution. Leave it in your hair for 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly.



If you just want to retouch the hair roost, the Hair Touch Up by L'Óreal Professionel offers the perfect color in different shades. This semi-permanent color is water-resistant, long-lasting, and can be removed only with shampoo in the shower.



Dyed hair requires some care - To guarantee that such hair stays healthy, strong, and even with brilliant color for longer, they are exposed to chemical treatment.

Since blonde hair is a color that is required for a more severe discoloration process that produces more delicate and brittle hair, blonde hair often needs more attention. Moreover, color can easily take on some yellow or green undertones, so it's important to use products to keep the color balanced, bright, and vibrant.


In the Blond Absol range, Kérastase brings together various products so that it can be easier for you to keep healthy blonde hair with a bright and vibrant color. To achieve it, you should alternate the Blond Absolu Bain Ultra-Violet Neutralizing shampoo with violet pigments with Blond Absolu Bain Lumière shampoo for a brighter color.

Thinking of brunettes, especially the ones with color-treated hair, Redken developed the line Color Extend Brownlights which includes shampoo and conditioner. This line uses blue color and wheat protein to counteract the orange and coppery tones that brown hair may sometimes take on.

In the case of dyed hair, the brand recommends washing immediately after coloring. Bright color and hair are the end product.

White hair care is quite similar to blonde hair maintenance. Being natural, the only concern is to neutralize the yellowish tones; if they are bleached, it is necessary for intense nutrition. René Furterer brings together two essential care scares for beautiful and shiny white hair. The Okara Silver Anti-Yellowing shampoo combined with the Luminosity Balm helps in neutralize the unwanted “yellow tone” while repairing the damage to the hair fiber, giving more shine and softness to the hair.

If none of the above treatments apply to your hair type, there is universal color-treated hair care available. Shu Uemura created the line Color Lustre, essential care for color-treated hair. Infused with the fragrance of a delicate rose, the range includes shampoo, conditioner and a mask.

If you prefer L'Óreal Professionel haircare, the brand’s line specialized in dyed hair is the Serie Expert Vitamino Color. Here you will find usual products such as shampoo, conditioner, mask and even others to enhance, protect, and boost colors.

However, if you are still struggling in finding products that are the right match for you and your hair, don’t worry - you can find several options here.
