A new wave of love for blue, pink, purple hairstyles has stirred up thanks to the growing popularity of American singer Billie Eilish: a young girl prefers an informal style – and fans readily repeat her!
However, her Western colleagues have been “indulging” in dyeing their hair in bright colors for several years: Katy Perry fell in love with green, Kelly Osbourne doesn’t part with lavender, Rihanna chose red.
What do you need to know to have blue hair for a long time?
Wash your hair as little as possible. Yes, we know that some people’s skin tends to be oily, but frequent hair washing is the main cause of color melting. You may of course like a turquoise or green shade, but this is not for everyone. So listen to people with experience – try to replace frequent washing with dry shampoo.
- Styling tools
Unfortunately, the heat destroys the texture of the hair, and therefore contributes to the disappearance of color. If you use a hair dryer or styler daily, you should avoid using them all the time to maintain color.
- Hair dye
Is blue hair the dream of many girls who love informal style, anime or mermaid movies? Not only for them! In fact, colored hair has captured the hearts of many stylists since manufacturers learned to create hair-safe shades that really blend beautifully with human skin color.
First, you should choose a professional hair dye. Tinted shampoos or dry paint will have a slight and short-lived effect. They are only good for maintaining color for a couple of nights. And you run the risk of staining your favorite pillowcases!
Professional paint is more expensive, but it can produce the effect you need. In addition, manufacturers of complex shades, as a rule, take care of their customers and add a special conditioner to the set with dye, which provides your hair with proper support immediately after a color change.
- Man’s hair dye
Nothing complicated, the technology is exactly the same as with girls. Just decide on the shade. And if you wear a beard, for example, it’s best to pick up darker shades of blue to match your natural facial hair color. (Unless, of course, you have a light beard).
- Mixing different shades with blue
Many people want to be like their favorite characters in books and movies, as well as anime. Even Korean pop stars often have fancy hairstyles that mix blue, pink and white shades. All this is a consequence of our colorful culture, which is not at all bad and doesn’t look strange anymore. After all, if we have the opportunity for self-expression, then why not use it?
However, taking care of such hairstyles is much more difficult. And even such a hairstyle can only be created by a true professional stylist. To preserve different shades of hair at the same time, you should make special masks that preserve color, and you definitely need to bleach before changing the image.
Some people prefer not just to make colored curls by mixing them with their own hair color, but to completely change the style. In order for the colored dye to be absorbed into your hair as firmly as possible, you need to bleach your hair.
Thus, the hair will acquire a light yellowish tint, and the inner pigment will not interfere with the absorption of the blue tint in the future.
However, we warn you that to regain your own hair color, you may need a professional stylist and quite a long period of time to wait for your hair to grow back.
- Additional color care products
You can use tinted shampoos or dry dye to keep your hair presentable. But more importantly, these are nourishing oils that will keep your hair healthy after the stress of dyeing and bleaching.
Q: How to style your hair without a hairdryer and irons?
A: Go back to the old proven ways with curlers and ribbons. It’s enough to roll them up for one night, and by the morning you will have beautiful colored curls. Who said you can’t use hairspray?
Q: Can dry shampoo be used?
A: Better to throw away your shampoo at all! (joke). Of course, dry shampoo doesn’t replace warm water and soap. In general, hygiene doesn’t allow you to bring your hair to the state of icicles. However, you can last a couple of days with it.
Q: Will the blue dye stick on black hair?
A: Today there is a professional paint that fits perfectly even on black hair. However, this doesn’t last long because the black pigment is very strong and it squeezes out the chemical tints from the hair structure. If you need blue for a holiday, you can dye your hair without bleaching it. But if you always want to wear blue curls, you will have to contact a stylist to strip you of your own hair color.
So, you know all about keeping blue hair dye. It’s not that hard if you follow a few simple rules (and learn how to wash your hair in cold water)! 🙂
