Colour Dip Dye


Ever wanted to experiment with different hair colors but were reluctant to because of the rather permanent nature of hair dyes? Well these days it's easier than ever and there are many dyes that are less permanent. There's no need to fear hair dying your hair anymore! We've listed some great products for you to try it out yourself.

This watercolour hair dye has been raved about by many beauty bloggers and buyers. What's great about this dye is that not only do you get a vibrant colour, but it also serves as a hydrating hair mask. Who doesn't love a dual purpose beauty product! It comes in many other colours and will usually stay for about five washes. 

Kool-Aid
Kool-Aid?? Yes, that's what I said, Kool-Aid. Not only is it a delicious drink, it can serve as a cheap and chemical-free way to dye the ends of your hair. Just take two packets of sugar free kool-aid (try cherry, raspberry or grape, they tend to work the best) and boil two cups of water in a pot. Pour the hot water into a bowl, mix in the kool-aid and voila you have your dye! Just remember, the longer you keep your hair in the dye, the darker the color will be. 

Hair chalk is one of the easiest ways to add colour to your hair without much of a hassle. You may be wondering which is better, chalk or liquid dyes, like the one's I've listed here. Well they both have their pros and cons. A big plus is that there's a wider variety of colors with chalk than with liquid dyes. Also you don't have to bye the chalk set I have listed here, any soft pastel chalk that you can find at your local art store will do. To achieve the dip dye with chalk is simple. First, you're going to need the chalk, a spray bottle with water, and a curling or straight iron. Take about a one inch section of hair at a time. Spray the section with water and rub the chalk stick on the hair. Let it dry and then go over it with your curling or straightening iron to seal in the color. 

Many of you have probably heard of the brand Manic Panic. They have awesome hair dyes and have been around for a while so they've definitely got their dye formula down. Similar to the Water Colour Hair dye, it gives a vibrant color and washes out after a few washes.
