If you are following me on instagram (you’re not? Click here!) then you may have seen that yesterday I received some parcels and in one of them was my pink semi-permanent hair dye I ordered from Amazon.
I expected the bottle to be smaller and check out that price!
What you will need to dip-dye your own hair:
- A pair of gloves.
- Two tin foil strips.
- An old t-shirt and or towel around your shoulders.
- Hair Dye.
DIY Blonde Hair with Pink Dip Dye
- Wash your hair in your usual shampoo and conditioner.
- Throw a towel on your head and let it dry for a while.
- Grab all the things I mentioned that you will need and rough dry your roots down to ears with a hairdryer.
- Part your hair and carry on the part making 2 plaits/braids not too tight and not too loose.
- Put a bobble in each end where you wish the dip-dye to go up to. (The less free hair the less dye)
- Make sure you have the gloves on and that the ends of your hair are towel dried.
- Squeeze the dye directly onto the ends of the plaits and rub in so that all of the hair is covered.
- Do one plait at a time, place the tin foil round each plait ‘end’ after adding the dye. Set a timer and wait!
As you can see from the picture above, the colour came our pretty vibrant! After the egg timer went off, I rinsed the ends of my hair under tepid water and hardly any product came off. I then towel dried the ends again and started to rough blow dry with a paddle brush. I was going to bed so I didn’t use hair stylers until this morning.
Above you can see my hair in bunches with the ends curled using GHD straighteners. The curl dropped out as the day went on but it looks really cute with a bit of a wave where the colour is. The dipdye trend hasn’t really caught on in my part of the world yet, but I’m pleased with the results considering I did it myself. 😀
I’m curious to see how it will look once I’ve washed it as it’s semi-permanent dye over bleached highlights. I will give you an update, maybe it will go more of a pastel colour?
In my hair, this semi-permanent colour lasts about 3 weeks, the initial shocking pink goes after the first few washes and then it leaves me with a sort of candy floss colour for the rest of the time. It’s not been suitable for me to colour it over the Summer as it’s been so hot and I’ve been washing it and air drying it most nights. I will be having another go soon though 🙂
