Always be careful when going ash-blonde, blonde or adding any color to your mane. It is suggested that you should consult with your stylist and ask questions like whether this color will suit your skin tone or hair texture and how it will appear once the shades get lighter. There are even chances that over bleached hair can make you a way older than you are. So, choose the shade carefully and always consult your stylist.
- Not following the instructions properly

If you are opting for a DIY hair coloring session then, make sure you read all the instructions carefully which are written on the hair color kit. Always provide enough time to color for settling in before you wash it off. And it is also suggested that you should be realistic about the color because it is not necessary that you will get an exact shade which the model on the pack is showing. You will always get an effect which is close to that shade.
- Using dry shampoo before coloring

If you are the one who frequently uses dry shampoo then, just make sure you wash off your hair a night before you want to get your hair colored. It is said that when you have dry shampoo on your hair the color of your roots can look different from what you are applying to your mane. Besides this, the dry shampoo also blocks the proper absorption of the color that can make your hair look ugly.
- Not bringing the picture of the hair color
