By Sharon R. Lee

Are you looking for the best way to do your hair color at home? If so, you may be surprised to hear that there are some things to know about color racks.

color racks

Color racks are the workhorses of your at-home hair color process. They're used to hold your color tubes, which help you apply the dye and keep track of what you've used.

Color racks are made from metal, typically aluminum or stainless steel. The racks are available in several shapes and sizes, so choose one that works best for your needs (and any space constraints you may have).

 In addition to being easy to clean, color racks allow for easy access to each tube so you can easily find exactly what you're looking for on each visit.


Tubes are the part of the hair color that you squeeze into your hand to apply it to your hair. They come in different sizes and colors, which is why they're so important to know. Some tubes are used for coloring small sections of hair, while others cover larger areas at once.

Tubes are usually sold together with their own storage rack (or "color rack"). If you're buying a new tube, be sure to check whether or not it comes with one.

Some tubes are meant for use right away and can be stored in any container but if you want them kept safe through multiple uses, invest in a color rack made specifically for them.

Color racks come in different shapes and sizes, depending on how many tubes they hold at once:

  • Single: One tube per slot
  • Double: Two tubes per slot
  • Triple: Three tubes per slot

Hair color is a chemical process that alters the natural color of your hair. The most common type of hair dye is permanent because it has no expiration date and doesn't wash out when you shower or swim in pools.

Some people choose to use at-home kits to dye their own hair, but professionals can also apply the color for you if you prefer.

there are things to know about color racks

You may have seen a color rack in your salon, but what is it? A color rack is like a rectangular shelf that you can use to store supplies.

You can use your color rack for organizing products like shampoo, conditioner and other beauty supplies. Color racks are also used to hold hair dyes, peroxide or other chemicals that are used to color your hair.

Color racks come in different sizes so you can choose one depending on the amount of space you have available and the amount of supplies that need to be stored on it.

Some color racks even have accessories such as hooks and shelves which allow you to customize the way they look by adding them onto the existing structure.

They're also available in many different designs so try looking around at some options before deciding which one suits best with your personal preferences!


We hope this has helped you understand how to best use color racks for your hair care needs.

Remember that there are many options out there, so if one does not work for you, don’t give up! Just try another one until you find something that does.

Have fun experimenting with different colors and shades at home - it can be very rewarding when the results turn out just as planned! Good luck!
