If you feel bold enough to try a new hair dye color, particularly
the blue hair dye, aside from those of the normal hair dye shades,
here is a quick and simple how-to.
- Bleach your hair
Basically, before applying blue hair dye, you must first bleach your hair. Get a hair bleach and use this until your hair obtains that light yellow or platinum shade. You must consider your hair's thickness and the depth of its natural color as there may be a need to do multiple bleaching. After bleaching, dry your hair. To keep your hair cuticle open and to further help stain the cuticle of the hair, do not do anything further.
- Apply the blue hair dye
After bleaching your hair, you may now apply the blue hair dye. Make sure to follow instructions. It is especially important to apply the blue hair dye to the root by combing it outwards towards the tips, ensuring an even spread. Do this procedure until your hair is all saturated. You may also massage the applied areas to ensure proper coverage of the blue hair dye. To get best results, it is recommended to wait for about an hour to let the color seep in your hair. After the waiting, you can now rinse the hair dye. When doing this, it is best to use cold water to close your hair cuticle. Also, this procedure avoids excess rinsing of the hair dye.
- Maintain the color of your hair
When maintaining the color of your hair, you may apply heat to enhance
its color. You may also wear a plastic head wrap when doing this
so that the hair dye does not dry out. Since your hair was bleached
prior to dying your hair, you may need to apply conditioner once
in a while to strengthen your hair as it may be very dye and might
cause breakage or damage.
The simple how-to in dyeing your hair blue are pretty much general
instructions in getting that funky and fun hair colors; however,
it is important that when deciding to make that change in
hair color, make sure that you understand the instructions from
start to the finish. Do the necessary research when doing this at
home, or better yet, consult an experienced professional hair colorist.
