What are Hot Roots (+How to Avoid and Fix Them)

We bet you faced the situation when after hair dyeing you get that perfect hair color but quite horrible brassy roots. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Well, basically this is what “hot roots” mean. What can be done in order to fix the situation? Check out our article!





In general, there are two reasons for hot roots:

 - when you try to dye previously-dyed hair in a lighter color. The reason for it is simple: the natural heat from your scalp can activate and speed up the action of the hair dye by your roots. This way your natural hair which is closest to the scalp lightens faster while the previously-dyed hair does it more slowly.
 - when you try to lighten all of your natural hair or use a bright color for the first time on natural undyed hair.

How can you avoid hot roots? There are some tips that can help you:

 - Chose a hair dye of the color that is close to your natural color. Apply hair dye to the roots only for 5 minutes until the processing time is over.
 - Don’t start applying hair dye straight on the roots. It isn’t right! First of all, you have to start with your hair ends and move in the upper direction. Hair roots will be the final point.

Even considering the fact that hot roots are one of the most common hair problems, it can be quite easily solved if you use the previously mentioned tips!
