Black to Burgundy hair dye process

Start by mixing 2 reds, 2 magenta dyes and the 30 volume developer in the mixing bowl and stir all three until you get a good consistency.

Section your hair into 4 different parts and start applying the hair dye on your desired section.

NOTE: Start applying the hair dye a couple of inches away from your roots as you move downwards. Your roots process quicker than your ends due to the heat from your scalp so DO NOT start with your roots.

Repeat the same method on all the sections and then start applying the hair dye on your roots and edges.

After your whole head is properly coated with the hair dye, wrap your hair in cling film and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Once the 30 minutes are up, rinse the hair dye until the water runs clear. Air dry or dry your hair under a dryer for 10 minutes.

The semi permanent kiss colors hair dye is supposed to be applied to damp hair so DON’T dry your hair completely.

On damp hair, apply the kiss colors red velvet hair dye all over your head until the whole head is coated and let it sit for 15 minutes.

If you followed all the steps correctly, your hair should already have a beautiful rich wine red burgundy color to it.
