I'm thinking about colouring my hair myself (due to a few greys) and also for something different. I really cant be bothered sitting at the hairdresser for that long.
Can someone please recommend one that is:
- Easy to apply for long thick (brown) hair
- Has a 'regrowth' follow on for when regrowth starts (Does that make sense?)
- Relatively good
- One that perhaps I can apply highlights?

I used to go to the hairdresser and also got tired of being there for hours -- I started using the John Frieda foam colour and found it easy and good. You may need 2 boxes for long thick hair.

I get professional developers and colours from a salon supplies shop. I have thick hair that is past ny shoulders and only use half a tube of colour at a time, so it actually works out cheaper than buying supermarket kits... and it doesn't fade as fast.

I've always done it myself too expensive to go to the hairdressers.
In regards to highlights you can buy specific kits for streaks/highlights. If you are gonna do your whole head to start get two kits, If you have regrowth from a previous colour, put it on your roots first and leave for whatever the box tells you and then put the colour through the rest a bit later.
If your hair is all even colored (other than the grey) just put it through all your hair at once and leave it for as long as the instructions say.
Put a towel around your shoulders or an old t-shirt or nudie as you might get dye on you.
Also if you are doing it inside put a towel under your feet, until you get used to applying to save the floor!
Keep an old towel or some tissue and some shampoo or hand wash close by to clean up the skin around your head you get dye on. Take it off ASAP so you don't get a nice tide line around your hair line!
