Have you ever had the nagging feeling that you need to change something right away but don’t want to leave your house or pay for an expensive salon procedure? Changing your hair color is one of the best ways to accomplish this. Here are the 8 most bizarre ways to dye your hair at home.
7. Coffee Dye
Coffee is one of the healthiest natural hair dyes. A quarter cup of freshly brewed espresso, half a cup of conditioner to add texture, and one teaspoon of coffee grounds are required to make a concoction that will change the color of your hair. Combine all of the ingredients thoroughly and apply them to your hair for about 60 minutes.
6. Pastels Dye
It’s simple to dye your hair with pastels; simply select a few colors to apply to your hair. Take one pastel stick and soak one end in water until it softens and becomes paste-like, then begin rubbing it into your hair. The color will appear vibrant, but pastels fade quickly.
5. Lemon Highlights
Lemon is a natural luminizer. Dilute half a cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice with a quarter cup of water. For moisture, add a little coconut oil. Apply to the areas of your hair that you want to draw attention to. The most important step is to expose your hair to sunlight, which will activate the lemon.
4. Marker Dye
Get yourself a box of washable markers, select a few colors to experiment with, and open each one. Inside are ink cartridges in the form of sticks. Put one end of the first stick into the water until it turns whiteish. Repeat with the remaining sticks, using separate bowls. Dilute each ink with a hair conditioner to turn it into hair dye. Then you can begin painting your strands! Gloves are a good idea for protection.
3. Beet Root Dye
Beetroot is another natural dye that can be used on both light and dark hair. To make your own beetroot dye, combine half a cup of fresh beet juice with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Apply the mixture to your hair, wrap it, and leave it for 50-60 minutes. Finally, if you have darker hair, you should get a nice purplish tint, and if you have lighter hair, you should get a gentle magenta tint.
2. Kool-Aid Dye
It’s ridiculously simple to dye your hair with Kool-Aid. Pour your Kool-Aid powder into a glass, add a little water to dilute it, and bring out the color, then add a generous amount of hair conditioner to turn it into the dye you’ll use on your hair. Allow it to dry before washing your hair.
1. Food Colouring Dye
This could be one of the most natural and safe ways to dye your hair at home, with some pretty vibrant results. Food coloring is free of chemicals and comes in a variety of colors to experiment with. Apply a few drops of the color you want to try, mixed with the hair conditioner, to the areas of your hair you want to dye. Allow the DIY dye to sit on your hair for 15-20 minutes before rinsing it with water.
