Pink hair is one of the hottest trends in hair dye right now. From hot-pink hair to baby pink, there are tons of shades of this color that you can choose from. But there are also a few things that you should know before dyeing your hair this vibrant shade.
First, make sure your base is light enough before you start coloring it. You’ll want to bleach your hair before dying it, since it’s much harder to get a pastel pink color from dark or black hair.
Next, pick the shade of pink that’s best for your hair and skin tone. Try a lighter shade if you have light-colored hair or a darker one if your skin tone is dark.
Another thing to keep in mind is that pink dye fades fast, so it’s important to touch up your color every 3 to 4 weeks, or when the color starts to show, according to Stephanie Brown, master colorist at IGK Salon Soho.
To prevent fading, avoid using heat styling tools on your hair. If you need to use a blow dryer or flat iron, apply a good heat protectant and use a lower heat setting. Wearing hats, scarves, or hoods when you go outside can also help prevent your hair from fading too quickly.
Finally, be sure to get a color remover for removing semi-permanent pink hair dye and permanent hair dye. These products are designed to gently lift the color from your hair without damaging it.
Some of the best color removers include shampoo, conditioner, and liquid soap. Be sure to read the instructions carefully, and follow them closely.
For a less-invasive option, you can try a vinegar mask. Combine equal parts white or apple cider vinegar with a moisturizing shampoo. Massage the mixture into your hair, avoiding the eyes and skin. Rinse out with cold water. This is a great remedy for removing pink semi-permanent dye within a few uses, but be prepared for some sour odor for a few days.
Lastly, baking soda is an excellent home remedy for removing dark pink semi-permanent hair dye. Mix equal parts of baking soda and water, and apply it to your hair. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes. Then, wash your hair with a mild shampoo. This should remove the dye and leave your hair feeling soft and smooth.
There are a lot of ways to make pink hair homemade, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs and budget. You can also book an appointment at a hair salon to have it professionally done for a more durable shade.
You can even try a DIY balayage technique to add a little extra pop to your look. It’s a great way to add some depth to your hair and can be fun for kids and teens. However, this look is a bit more difficult to do at home, so we recommend you go to a professional if you’re not comfortable doing it yourself.
