Thanks to the Virus a lot of us are stuck at home. We have thought of doing some daring things to our hair. Just remember, daring things cost a lot of money to fix. We are here to help you with fun and easy tips. Bored in the house and I’m in the house bored…
Firstly let’s hide the scissors…
Trust us. Never, and we mean Never have we seen a good cut with kitchen scissors, Never! Now that the scissors are out of the way, we can all calm down and not look like Britney 2007. Rather wait for booking with your hairstylist
Play It Safe With Pastel Colours At Home
Let’s rather play it safe with soft pastel colours at home, these products are in your kitchen pantry. We are talking about food colouring. This method is super easy and a lot of fun. All you will need is food colouring and conditioner for this fun DIY colour. Do not apply the food colouring directly to your hair, this will lead to permanent staining of your hair.
Firstly your hair needs to be light enough (blonde or a pale yellow) for the food colouring to alter your hair colour. So if you have dark hair don’t bother, rather use the food colouring for what it’s really made for. We also do not recommend trying to lighten your hair at home with any form of drug store-bought bleach or decolourizer. If decolourizer if the way to go then you will definitely need to go and see the professionals for this one.
Depending on the intensity you desire, drop a couple of drops into your conditioner and mix well. Apply this to your hair and allow the colour to grab for about 15 minutes before rinsing. We highly suggest you say away from Blues and greens when doing DIY colours. Blues and greens are among the most difficult colours to flush out.
You can even part your hair and apply different colours, just remember this is a messy job so remember to use an old towel and gloves. Direct food colouring which messes onto clothing will stain and is almost impossible to get out of clothing.
Let The Professionals handle It
Ultimately we always suggest you let the professionals handle. However, we were young too and completely understand the need to experiment. If you do decide to let us professionals handle it (which we highly recommended is the best advice), Redken has 2 super fun colour ranges for pastel hair fun: Redken Shades EQ and Redken City Beats.
Have some fun and tag @blossyouth and @hairvolutionbrooklyn and show us your gorgeous pastels. Bored in the house and I’m in the house bored…
