Watch: How to dye
Watch our step-by-step guide of the dye process, brought to you by True Sons founder, Carl Sandler.
How long should I leave True Sons on?
We recommend applying the product for 15 minutes the first time and evaluating the results. Need more coverage? Reapply in 5-minute intervals until you reach your desired shade.
How do I prevent skin staining?
1. Use Vaseline or petroleum jelly to line the edges of your beard or hairline. This creates a protective barrier that they dye can’t penetrate.
2. Have a damp cloth ready and wipe off any excess due you get on exposed skin as soon as possible. Wipe your ears off every time as a general rule, because you can’t see behind there.
3. Always wear gloves to protect the skin on your hands.
Where can I use True Sons?
You can use the same True Sons foam on multiple body parts including scalp (head) hair, chest hair and arm hair.
However, True Sons cannot ever be used on your eyebrows or eyelashes. Getting dye in your eyes is extremely dangerous. Please be careful.
We have not tested True sons on the pubic area so please don’t use it near your business district. You might give a whole new meaning to the term ‘blue balls’.

The sweet spot to reapply True Sons is every 7-10 days.
Work True Sons into your regular grooming routine and dye before you shower.
Showering off makes for an easier cleanup.
Dye after a haircut or beard trim for the best results.
True Sons is a demi-permanent dye.
That means it washes out after 12 - 15 washes.
If you need to apply more often, try leaving it on longer, using our dye booster or going a shade darker.
