With hairdressers and barbers among the list of “non-essential businesses” the government has ordered to close as a result of the nationwide lockdown, many of us are turning to home hair dye for the first time.

Of course, a dodgy hair-do isn't on the top of everyone's concerns right now, but feeling put-together can do wonders for one's mood. That's why we've put together a list of the best places to buy hair dye in the UK and US.

Dyeing your own hair at home is not without its risks, but the process has become much easier over the past few years. Today's products are more gentle on your hair and look more natural.

There are also a huge number of tutorials you can follow on Youtube, to give you advice and step-by-step instructions.
