Hi! I’m Tera Rae Stephens, a hairstylist with over 10 years of experience. And today, we’re at Tek Salon and Spa in Costa Mesa, California. In this clip, I’m going to tell you what happens when hair color is not left on long enough. There are two things that can happen. When lightening hair, if you underprocess the color, you may end up with unwanted brassy golden or red tones in the hair. If you underprocess color when you’re darkening, you may end up with a result that is dull, lacks shine and luster, and if you’re covering gray, the gray hair may end up looking transparent and not completely covered. I always recommend reading the manufacturer’s instructions when coloring hair, so that you can always process according to the manufacturer’s processing time. I also recommend that when making a dramatic change to your hair color, you always see a professional for the very best results. And, that’s what happens when you don’t process your hair color long enough.
