Dip dyed hair is becoming very popular these days. Many celebrities do this to add an extra kick to their appearance. But this procedure is very easy and cheap, so even you can do it as well! Dip dying your hair is simply when you take the ends of your hair, and dip it into a container of semi-permanent hair coloring. This is an edgy look, and for those of you who are trying to make a statement with your hair, this is perfect for you.
The best part about dip dyed hair is that because it is dyed at the bottom of your hair, you have no touch-ups needed since your roots are not affected. In most cases, it is semi-perminate as well, so if you have a job interview coming up, it is easy to change your look without having to go to a salon every so often.
Girls with blonde hair with get the best results with the most vibrant colors. But for girls with other color hair, you can bleach the tips of your hair. Bleaching is not necessarily the best thing for your hair, so if you want to, you can skip this step and still get lighter affects.
In order to dip dye your hair, you must first:
1. Shampoo your hair and towel dry it.
2. Divide your hair into two separate sections (part your hair down the middle) and give yourself pigtail braids. This will make it easier for when you go to dip dye. Wrap a hair tie up to the point where you want your color to be. Most people do about an inch or so, but this is totally up to you.
3. To apply the dip dye, it is best to use a comb to spread the dye evenly throughout the hair. Make sure that you have covered all areas that you want to be dyed.
4. Let it sit for 15-25 minutes. Then, wash it out. Blow dry to see the final outcome.
And there you have it, dip dyed hair!
Note: the dye can stain your clothes and fingers, so make sure to wear an old towel when doing this. Use gloves in order to keep hands clean.
