How do I find my color?

Start by Calling our Colorist +1 (347) 626-9197 or taking our Color Quiz. We  asks you a few questions about your current hair color and what you are looking to achieve with your new color, then helps determine your just-right shade.

24 – 48 hours before coloring?

We highly recommend you CALL +1 (347) 626-9197 our colorist and sensitivity test 48 hours before you begin coloring your hair.

Allergy test :

1. Mix small, equal parts of DEVELOPING CREAM and HAIR COLOR CREAM in a plastic bowl, please use a plastic spoon (do not use metallic utensils).
2. Examine the test area after 24 – 48 hours. If no reaction occurred, you are ready to color.

How light can I go?

If your hair is color treated and lighter than your outgrowth, you can lighten your roots up to two levels but we recommend contacting our colorists to discuss your options and find the perfect color.

Should I wash my hair before coloring?

Wait at least one full day after washing your hair before you color. If you use styling products, comb through your hair before coloring to remove any excess product. Shampoo hair thoroughly and wait at least 24 hours before coloring.

Do I section my hair?

Divide your hair into four sections. Part your hair down the middle and split each half with an additional part line, so your hair falls into four quadrants. Color each section individually.

How do get to the back of my hair?

Our bottle has a nozzle tip designed to easily divide hair into smaller sections. Create and color small rows, about a quarter inch apart, one section at a time. Be sure to fully saturate roots. Use half on your roots, go back in and massage color into your roots

Will I see residue color?

Usually it is normal for residue color 24 – 48 after shopping especially if you use a dark or red color.

How do I protect my hair and make my color last?

Protect and strengthen your color with our Shampoo and Conditioners that nourishes hair and won’t strip it of color. Be sure to use cool water to shampoo and condition your hair.

How do remove excess color from my skin?

The coconut oil acts as a stain remover as well.


Our Take Home Color box includes two sets of latex-free gloves for application; coconut based skin protectant; a thermal hair-cap to enhance color processing; and after-care shampoo and conditioner.

Take Home Color uses it’s own color line that’s PPD and Ammonia-Free color.

At Take Home Color we value the integrity of our formulations and let our clients know what is realistically achievable with single process color. Because of the nature and chemistry involved with a single process color it is not possible to lift hair lighter than three shades without using lightener. Luckily for our clients in the New York metropolitan area we have partnered with Dramatics NYC Academy to offer affordable hair lightening services to get you on the road to the home-maintained color of your dreams.

Take Home Color sets itself apart from other at-home color services in that it offers a complimentary, live video consultation with a real colorist to help you with your formula. Our colorists are all licensed and certified cosmetologists with extensive experience in the field of hair color, who will take the time to help you achieve the results you desire.

We know, we know—why all the questions? At Take Home Color we don’t see colorists simply as hairstylists, we look at them as hair doctors. Just like your practitioner will have you fill out a chart before they examine you, our colorists need to have a little information about you so that they can better help you during your consultation.

Yes! We ship virtually everywhere; meaning that our on-the-go clients can have their formula forwarded anywhere they need to be.
