A Busy Mom’s Secret for Coloring Hair at Home In 1 Hour or Less

I have an 8-month-old balayage going on that’s desperate for an overhaul. I've decided to go dark with the help of Madison Reed!

My Hair Goals

First and foremost, I’m a busy mom. I work full time and have three children under the age of 4. At this stage in my life, I just don’t have the time to spend hours at a salon.

So, I really need something I can maintain with minimal time at a more realistic price – something I can do myself while my kids are taking their afternoon nap, yaknowwhatimean?

I also want my hair to feel soft and shiny, something that’s increasingly hard with the Florida humidity.

Madison Reed checks all of these boxes for me by delivering rich, multi-dimensional color to my door, at an incredible price. Oh, and I can color my hair at home in about an hour. That’s the amount of time I’d usually spend just driving to get my hair done!

Coloring Hair at Home – Why It’s Not as Scary as You Think

I have heard SO many horror stories that ended in “you should’ve just gone to a salon” or “let the professionals do it next time.”

For many years, I was too intimidated to color my hair at home. I was worried I’d ruin my hair and embarrass myself. But then I found Madison Reed.

With Madison Reed, you’re applying permanent color to your hair – not lifting it as you would with bleach or peroxide–so you really can’t mess it up. You can use their “try it on” feature to see what different shades of hair color would look like on you, and you can even book a free video consultation with a licensed colorist to get shade advice.

The actual process of coloring is SO easy. Divide your hair into sections, apply barrier cream to your ears, forehead, and neck to prevent stains, then mix the activator and color together. Next apply the color to small sections of your hair, massaging it in. This process took me about 15 minutes total.

Then, I put on the hair cap and set a timer for 35 minutes. After my hair has processed, I hop in the shower to rinse off the color and shampoo and condition my hair.

That’s it! We’re talking an hour, tops.

Look at this amazing result! I'm thrilled with how my color looks after using Madison Reed!

The Value of Madison Reed

I personally love how fast and easy this whole process is. With a busy family to care for, my time is very valuable. Even better, I get amazing hair color results at a fraction of what the salon charges.

The end result you can get at home with Madison Reed is equal to what you can get at a salon, and you’re spending way less time and money to do it.

I also really love how silky and glossy my hair feels after I use Madison Reed hair color. It contains keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root extract that leaves your hair feeling so much smoother and shinier than before you colored it.


Coloring your hair at home with Madison Reed is fast and affordable, and it looks amazing! Any time I plan to color my hair at home, I’m reaching for Madison Reed.
