orange dip dyed hair

Hello. This is Maddie and this is my hair. I’ve wanted to try dip dying it and summer seemed like the perfect time to give it a try. My friend Saylor was nice enough to do the dipping for me. Here’s what it looked like to start:

starting hair for dip dye

We used this dye that we found at a Sally Beauty Supply store:

We coated the ends in dye and worked it in with our fingers. {Be sure to use gloves so you don’t end up with orange hands.} We let it sit for around 45 minutes. The longer you leave it in, the brighter it will be.

We rinsed it under the sink and tried to get the water to run clear. It never got quite clear. We towel dried it, blow dried it, and used a straightener to help lock in the color. It looked like this:

  1. Very cute! And the best part is, if you hated it, it was easy to get rid of. ;) Love that bright orange, though. Very brave. :)
