Overview hair colour 4.8 chestnut dark brown


The chestnut dark brown hair colour is of high quality and especially developed to use at home. As pure as possible, without ammonia, ppd (but with tds), resorcinol and parabens. WECOLOUR is therefore much better for your hair than most hair dye from a drugstore. That also means the colour stays beautiful for a longer amount of time. You'll see that WECOLOUR hair dye cares for your hair. It's softer after dyeing and it'll have a nice shine. The high quality pigment in the dye makes sure the dye stays beuatiful for long.

Don't need the whole package to dye your hair? Then WECOLOUR is a beneficial choice. The dye you don't use, can be kept for up to twelve months. That means you don't waste any dye. If you have short hair, you can due your hair multiple times, because a normal package is enough to dye hair up to the shoulders. You should make sure to keep the colour cream and developer in its packaging, because you can only store unmixed hair dye.

The colour comes in a tube of 60ml that has to be mixed with the activator with a ratio of 1:1. The colour and activator should be mixed with the enclosed brush in a plastic container (warning: do not use a metal container or metal cutlery! When the colour comes in touch with metal, it will rust and become unusable).

The chestnut dark brown hair colour contains a 60 ml colourcream that you mix with the activator (6%) in the ratio 1:1. This package contains:

  • Colour cream chestnut dark brown - 60ml
  • Developer 6% - 60ml
  • Brush with comb
  • Plastic gloves
  • Clear instructions
  • Sachet shampoo and conditioner - 15ml

Why chestnut dark brown hair dye?

Do warm colours look on you, and do you have relatively dark hair? If so, chestnut dark brown hair dye is a good choice for you. The warm, dark colour looks good if you're a warm type, in this case an autumn type.

If you don't want a colour that's too dark, you can pick a tint lighter. Use our hair colour advice tool to see which colour fits you. When in doubt: it's better to pick a lighter colour than a colour too dark. You can't dye dark dyed hair back to a lighter colour. If you've dyed it too dark, it may last up to 12 weeks before it's lighter again. You can read about this in our blog about hair that's dyed too dark.

If you want a tint lighter, you should choose the chocolate brown 5.7 or the chestnut light brown 6.8. You could also mix the 4.8 with the 5.0 brown to make it a bit lighter and less warm. If this turns out too light and you'd still rather have the chestnut dark brown hair dye, we'll send you it for free. If you think the 4.8 doesn't have enough coverage on grey hair, you can mix it with the 3.0 dark brown. This is a natural tint, which often have an even better coverage.

Shipping to Belgium, Germany and England is free if you order mulitple products. Unfortunately, our products can't fit through the mailbox in countries abroad because these orders require a signature before recieval.

Colour advice Hair colour Chestnut dark brown
Colour advice Hair colour Chestnut dark brown

WECOLOUR hair dye in the colour 4.8 chestnut dark brown is a beautiful and warm dark brown hair colour with 100% grey coverage. Is your hair naturally a warm colour? If so, the 4.8 chestnut dark brown will fit you very well! If you have sensitive skin or if you have an allergy to hair dye, you might be able to still use our red colours. You should still always do a test to see if you're allergic.

If you change your mind and want a cool dark brown tint, you should opt for the 4.1 ash dark brown. You could also choose the somewhat lighter 5.1 ash brown. If you think the chestnut ash brown is too dark, you can also choose the 5.7 chocolate brown, which is also a warm colour. If you really want a chestnut colour, you should try the 6.8 chestnut light brown. Our colours usually end up a little darker than expected, so that would be a good choice. These colours are also a good alternative if you have porous, damaged or curled hair. If you have so-called 'hard' hair, hair that's difficult to dye, you should probably choose a mixture of 50% 3.0 dark brown and 50% 4.8 chestnut dark brown.

Every package comes equipped with an instruction flyer. The mixing ratio of colour cream and developer is 1:1. Shake the developer well before use. Mix 1 tube of colour cream with 1 bottle of developer in a plastic or glass bowl until you have an even mixture. If you only want to dye your outgrowth or if your hair is very short, you can use half of both the developer and the colour cream. Use the hair colour within 12 months after opening. Once you've applied the dye to your roots, continue applying the dye throughout the lengths and ends. Use the end of the brush to separate sections of hair. Per section, brush the colour into your hair and massage it thoroughly so it's evenly spread. Repeat this for all sections. When you've finished, leave the colour in your hair to develop for 35 minutes.

Read the instructions carefully before colouring!

Preparation and tips
Preparation and tips

Tips and tricks for dyeing your hair with the best results:

  • We recommend that you perform an allergy test at least three days before dyeing your hair. Mix a tiny bit of the colour cream with a drop of the developer and apply it on the inside of your arm under a plaster. Make sure you leave the dye for at least 72 hours, occasionally check to see how your skin is reacting to the dye. If you have an allergic reaction, we advise you not to dye your hair.
  • For the best results, don’t wash your hair for two days before dyeing your hair. This protects your scalp.
  • Use an old towel.
  • Always use plastic gloves (included in the package).
  • Don't use a metal bowl to mix the colouring. Always use a plastic or glass bowl.
  • Use a brush to apply the dye (included in the package).
  • Use an alarm to keep track of the time.
  • If you won't be using all of the colour cream in one go, it's best to use kitchen scales to accurately measure out the cream.
  • Before applying the dye, you can apply some oil-based cream to your hairline along your forehead, ears and neck so the dye won't stain your skin.

What our clients say

I've never coloured my hair before, so I was a bit scared to do it myself. After reading the instructions properly it all worked out well. My grey hair is completely gone, my hair feels vibrant and the colour is exactly as I expected. The colour is more natural than I could ever imagine.

Annemiek de Jong

Sometimes I had a similar product added to my hair dye at the hairdresser, which I was very satisfied with. Now that I dye my hair at home with WECOLOR due to price concerns, I've started using the Colour Mask. I have just added it to my hair dye. I have to say: I was very impressed with the result. My hair felt very healthy and soft after dyeing. For me, WECOLOUR Colour Mask is here to stay!
