This post explains about How to Use Hair Coloring. This is the final part of our hair color series, and we couldn’t end it without looking at the big, colorful world of temporary dyes. With rainbow shades being an ever-growing trend with beauty daredevils of all the ages, it’s time we break down the basics of temporary hair dye and open the readers up to the possibility if this color option.
How to Use Hair Coloring
- A temporary dye is a semi-permanent color which means it lays on top of the hair cuticle instead of penetrating it.
- There’s no real chemical involved in the procedure, making it the simplest way of coloring hair.
- Temporary dyes work best on the pre-lightened hair, for good reason.
- If the hair is bleached white, the result is usually going to look as saturated as it looks in the bottle.
- But, if the hair is bleached yellow or is the natural shade of blonde or brown, you have to consider the color theory to predict what the shade will look like over top.
- It is true the bright blue dye will look vivid on white lightened hair, but the yellow tones in the brassy blonde will turn that sapphire shade green.
What’s the method for maintaining a temporary hair color?
- Because this dye sits on top of the hair cuticle, it fades the fastest.
- Though frequent touch-ups are unavoidable with this fleeting dye option. Don’t wash your hair. Let it get dirty and invest in hair powder to ward off the grease.
- The heat from the iron is another way to dissipate the artificial pigment that you put into the hair.
- The more you touch it with styling products that contain alcohol or the hot styling tools, the faster it’s going to fade.
- It’s the double-edged sword because you want to maintain but you also want to keep it looking cute.
- No matter how many precautions you take, we suggest always having the new jar of dye on hand to nip fading strands in the bud.
