If you don’t feel comfortable heading to the salon, or simply want to save money, here are some tips for successfully doing your hair colour at home with help from PHYTO Paris.
PHYTOCOLOR offers 16 shades of permanent hair colour. This plant-based colouring care contains no PPD, resorcinol or ammonia. It’s all good!
To replace artificial pigments and make up the PHYTOCOLOR shade palette, PHYTO Paris has integrated up to 74% of botanical pigments into the colouring base. These pigments ensure 100% coverage of grey hair.
The 16 lustrous PHYTOCOLOR shades are derived from 5 dye plants:
When choosing your hair colour, match your current shade to the “before” shade on the box. Then, choose a desired colour that’s within two shades of that. Don’t try to create your own custom shade by combining two colours – leave that to the professionals!
PHYTOCOLOR Pro tip: For coloration newbies, remember to shop for 2 colouring kits. You may need more than 1, especially if you have long hair. For touch-ups and future colourings, one kit is all you’ll need!
While you’re at the pharmacy, pick up other hair colouring essentials: a mixing bowl and brush, hair clips, plastic gloves, and a stick of lip balm. We’ll explain how to use them, below.
From start to finish, follow all the manufacturer’s directions to the letter, including the strand test. The test will help you make sure that you picked the right shade and that you won’t have an allergic reaction to the product.
Hair colour doesn’t just stain hair – it can also make a mess of your counters, clothes, hands, and more! Cover your counter with a plastic bag or newspaper, wear an old robe, and use an old towel that you don’t mind staining. Before you colour, protect your skin by applying a clear solid lip balm along your hairline and around your ears. Wear gloves while you colour and keep them for when you rinse out the dye afterwards. Use facial cleansing wipes to clean up splatters as they happen.
Now that you’ve coloured your hair, it’s time to adopt a care routine.

STEP 1 : PHYTOCOLOR Colour-Protecting Shampoo
This shampoo is a real wonder: besides smelling like heaven, it gently cleanses, protects colour and revives shine!
Application tip: apply twice for maximum effectiveness and leave the 2nd application on for 2 minutes to reinforce its action.
STEP 2: PHYTOCOLOR Color-Protecting Mask
This cream textured mask is applied along the lengths and ends of hair. It easily melts into damp hair to intensely repair and detangle, and to protect pigment shine. Results are immediate: colour is revived, hair is silky smooth.
Application tip: Place a small amount in the palm of your hands and rub vigorously until the mask thickens. Apply along the lengths and ends of hair. Leave on for 1 to 2 minutes for express care, or for 5 to 7 minutes for intensive action.
Step 3: PHYTOCOLOR Shine-Activating Care
This treatment has a cool and light gel texture that makes it easy to apply. Use it every day on the lengths and tips to protect colour and restore shine. No need to rinse it off, it melts instantly into your hair and leaves it shiny and silky soft.
