Do you apply from the bottle or use a brush?

When I used to get my roots done at a salon, they always used a brush to apply. I get impatient so ever since switching to coloring my hair at home, I just apply from the bottle (after mixing, of course).

I realize that the dye runs onto some of the rest of my hair, so I've been trying to psych myself up to use a brush on the roots so that I limit the amount of dye that runs onto the already dyed hair.

What do you do? Do you use a brush or just apply from the bottle? What are your experiences and results?
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    I bought one of those professional-style brushes; it works great.

    Don't concern yourself too much with this one, cp. It's easy (and I'm typically bad at this kind of thing).

    Thanks, Ninja! (How are you :profileleft: by the way)

    Did you get the brush at a beauty supply store like Ricky's?

    ETA: Never mind - I check online and its available cheaply at my local Ricky's. Muchas gracias.

    Sure thing.

    Just pour the mixed color from the bottle into one of those cheap-o beauty bowls, then use the brush to dip in for color. It's easier than the bottle, imo, although next time, when I have to do my whole head, I'm not sure what method will work best.

    I'm fine, though utterly sick of rain. How about you?
