Color My Hair

Three ways to color your hair.

CHALKING

Lasts: 1 Shampoo

A lot of the temporary ways to color your hair don't show up well unless you're blonde, but this works really well for dark hair, like mine. You can buy “hair chalk” but it doesn't work as nicely as buying chalk pastels (NOT oil based) that an artist would use. You can get them relatively cheap and the results are much better.

How To: If you have dark hair, spray the sections you want with water until they are damp. If you have blonde hair, don’t wet it. Pick your color and rub it up and down your tresses, twisting the section of hair as you go to coat both sides. Allow your newly colored hair to dry (or blow dry it if you’re in a hurry). To set the color in so it is less likely to rub off on clothing or furniture, use a hair straightener to seal the strands. I suggest using an old straightener as it does leave color residue behind.

KOOL AID

Lasts: 2 weeks- 6 months depending on hair

Using Kool Aid to dye your hair is a trend that has been around for a while but has had a resurgence in popularity recently as an alternative to the hair chalking fad. The only problem with this technique of dying your hair is that the amount of time it stays in is based solely on your hair texture and color, so you may want to test it out on a small area before committing fully to the idea.

How To: Depending on hair length, use anywhere from 1-6 packets of your Kool Aid color. ONLY use the unsweetened kind.

Pour powder into a sauce pan and add water. You want it to be drinkable liquid consistency, not paste, but the less water you add the more vibrant the color will be. Bring to a boil on your stove top. After allowing the liquid to cool a bit, dip your hair in and hold for 2-3 minutes. Remove hair from the pot and dab dry with an old towel or paper towels. Do not wash hair for the next 24 hours.

EYE SHADOW

Lasts: 1 Shampoo

After researching and finding this, I admittedly set down my laptop and stood in front of my mirror for a good half hour experimenting with this one. The color is a lot more vibrant than chalking; however it comes out all over your clothes and hands every time you touch it. If you can manage to keep your hands off your beautifully colored hair, then go for it! If you find some way of sealing it that works better than hairspray, let me know!

How To: Working one section at a time, spray hair with water until damp. Rub a tiny dot of conditioner into the section. Using an individual eye shadow, start at the top and work your way down, sliding the tub of shadow down your hair while holding it against the shadow with your thumb.

Coat the front and the back as many times as you would like until you get the desired color. Spray with hairspray in an attempt to seal it. Allow to dry, or blow dry.

Eu pintei meu cabelo de ruivo pouco tempo após terminar com meu primeiro ex-namorado. A primeira coloração foi 7.0, que passei a 9.7 em abril de 2017.

My boyfriend used to be obsessed with my long brown hair and was vegan and paranoid about chemicals in everything! I had always wanted to dye my hair and he strongly opposed. Well, he broke up with me on Valentine's Day one year. Two days later, my hair bright red! And I Loved it!

I did a kinda ombre with henna,but only the inner layers of my hair. So when I would put it up it was really cool, and when the hair was down it would peek in between my actual hair color.
