Doing the unusual to achieve and odd thing can be fun at times, so we check out a fun and easy way to dye one’s hair blue. Odd right?
Wait till you hear what’s next. Blue food coloring can dye your hair blue, yes blue.
But remember, we as Africans have very dark hair generally apart from a fortunate few like me I guess. A weirdo expert suggests washing your hair with bleach first to lighten it so the blue can really appear blue, know the darker your hair the less-saturated the blue will be or it will be a tint which is perfect cos you won’t want people staring at you like something went wrong somewhere.
Note that the food coloring can last for as much as only a month since it isn’t a permanent colour, so you can experiment without being so scared of having a permanent blue on your head.
Try at home:
- Blue food coloring
- your usual conditioner
- a paint brush (to use as a mixer and applicator)
- shower cap or plastic bag
- a small bowl
Fill a cup halfway with your usual conditioner and empty into the bowl, stir in a few drops of the coloring. If you are comfortable with the saturation of the blue, move on, else add more till you get your required result. Apply the solution evenly and carefully, wash out with water after five or six hours. Remember to wear a shower cap to avoid stains.
If you wash your hair days after dyeing, your coloring will wash off sooner than expected.
