5 Reasons Why Every Colourist Uses a Tint Brush and You Should Too

Colourists always use a tint brush and bowl and are very careful with their colour placement. Their results (and job!) depends on them placing the right colour in the right place.

Here are the top five reasons why you should colour with a tint brush at home:

1. Precise colour placement.

Layers are for cuts, not colour. Start using a tint brush for your home colouring to introduce control to the hair colouring process. The tint brush helps you place the colour exactly where you need it, without overlapping colour. Colour which has been overlapped will be darker and less vibrant at the ends . The tint brush lets you paint the colour exactly where you need it, significantly increasing fabulous colouring outcomes, and reducing the likelihood that you will have a home colouring disaster or even minor mishap.

2. Creating clean easy partings.

Follow our simple sectioning guide. for easier, neater sectioning. Use the handle of your brush to create neat partings to section your hair. Use non-metallic sectioning clips (provided in your Salon Set) to clip your hair out of the way. This will keep it neat and manageable while you colour and it helps you to access and see the roots of your hair so that you can place the colour exactly where you need it. The aim is to avoid overlapping colour which will make your hair colour darker and duller in the mid-lengths after repeated colouring.

3. Colour saturation.

Using a tint brush helps you control not only where the colour goes but also how much colour you paint on to your hair. This is especially useful if you are trying to cover some unloved greys .

4. Great for greys.

Grey hair has no colour pigments and can be coarser and naturally be resistant to absorbing colour. Use your tint brush to paint the colour into the grey roots and continue colouring all sections of your hair (roots or full-length depending on your colouring needs) and then return to place more colour on grey roots. Push the colour into the hair with the brush to help the colour absorption. The tint brush helps you double-up on the colour where you need it most, while avoiding overlapping and colour build-up on the mid-sections of your hair.

5. It’s all about the result.

Using a tint brush for your home colouring is easy, and fabulous colour results can be achieved and repeated at home by using the right product and application method.

It’s easier than you might think to colour at home using salon accessories such as a tint brush. A tint brush can take your home colouring to another gorgeous level.

Great product, smells clean and chemical free. Colour is as described and instructions easy to follow – the mixing bowl and brush were a big help too.

It’s like having an at home spa / salon experience. The toolkit including brush, bowl, clips, cape and mat are such great quality. The packaging with barrier oil, developer, hair colour, shampoo, conditioner and gloves is so well though out. The shampoo and conditioner smell amazing and as if they’ve just come from Aesop. An extremely well thought out concept for professional hair colouring at home.

This was not hard at all, it’s easier to colour with the right gear and the brush/clips helped me colour my roots-only touch-up. Colour is soft, natural looking, exactly what I wanted and my hair feels great!

I am so so glad I found The Shade! I really don’t like going to the hairdressers to dye my hair, I find it so pricey and it’s quite inconvenient for me to spend that time in the chair. However, I also don’t like using box dye because it can be damaging to the hair, smells bad, and the colours on the package are often not reflective of how your hair is gonna turn out! Enter, The Shade. It was so easy to select my colour (with pics of people actually WEARING it!) plus the entire kit included EVERYTHING I needed: cape, bowl, brush, clips, mat. It was incredible. I dyed my hair, it came out SO SHINY, GORGEOUS, AND SOFT! My hair has never looked better!
