So you want to put some color in your hair? You're young, now is the best time! You can do a streak(s), your ends, your underlayer, or your whole head!
FIRST TIME DYING? Go to a local salon or beauty store and talk to the people there and get recommendations just to be safe :) Also, look up reviews of brands you use, watch tutorials or videos of other people doing it on youtube, and follow instructions on products!
PRODUCTS & INFO ON THEM SPECIFICALLY:
1. Temporary Dye
Where to get: Sally's, ULTA, CVS, Walmart, Hot Topic
Brands: Manic Panic, Splat, (those are the ones I know of off the top of my head!)
How to: Follow the Instructions on the bottle, you may have to bleach your hair first! It all depends on how you want the color to come out & how dark your hair is! If your hair is very dark, you will have to bleach it!
Warnings, Tips, Other: Be careful about it! Some colors come out weird on non-bleach blonde hair! Once, blue dye turned out green! And be careful about going to the pool during the summer! (Look up about that!)
Where to Get: Walmart, Target, Any Grocery Store,
Brands (Types): I've heard the unsweented ones aren't sticky when putting into to the hair and are suppose to be better!
How To: There are 2 ways,
-Pour a little bit of water into a pot and 2 packets of koolaid (the small ones that are .25 of 4/$1) and boil it. Then put it in a cup and leave the hair in it for 10-15 minutes
-Mix some koolaid with a tiny bit of water and conditioner and rub into hair.
Warnings, Tips, Other: WARNING - you are probably thinking, this will wash out within 1-2 showers right? NO. I did this 3 weeks ago using the boiling method and red kool-aid, and it is STILL in my hair. It's faded some, but still.
Where to Get: Hot Topic, Beauty Salon Stores (Sally's)
How to: Follow the instructions on the box, but get the comb and comb onto the hair desired! The ones from hottopic do wash out and they have tons of colors!
Warnings,Tips,Other: Do it on just cleaned hair so you can wear it for 2 days!
Where to Get: Sally's, Party City, Maybe Target/Walmart, Halloween Store
How to: Literally spray it on to your hair.
Warnings,Tips,Other: None that I know of!
The best method I know for this is to split your hair in two sections (with your normal part that you use everyday) and braid it, putting the hairtie where you want the dye to stop. Then color the hair below it!
You can also just kind of "wing it"
If you want to just do a streak in your hair or one on each side, etc. Put all you hair up leaving out the pieces you want to dye.
This is a streak of hair, but striped with 2 colors, like a raccoon's tail. You can either use 2 different dyes, or use your natural hair color as one of the colors in between! Just simply make stripes on the strip of hair!
Put up all your hair except the underneath of your hair that you want to dye. Simple as that!
Anything else you want me to add, just leave a comment/question below :)
And just fyi, this is just from experience, and watching others. Don't blame me if your hair doesn't come out as you wanted!
