Light Pink Hair Dye With Food Coloring


Can you see the pink? It fades from blonde to pink. Anyway, it didn't turn out at all like I wanted it to. This is my first dye job with food coloring, so it's a learning experience. I know what to do next time. So here's what I wanted to do.

First of all, I used 3 different colors. Can't tell, can you? I parted my hair all zig zag and all over the place and then I dipped part of it in blue food coloring, part in pink food coloring, and part in purple food coloring. And this is what I got. A light pink color. I should mention I dropped the food coloring into warm water. So basically I wanted three bright colors and got this one faded color instead.

Here's what I think happened. I think I didn't use enough food coloring. I plan to try again. When I do something successfully, I'll give the exact steps.

    1. It's a little more pink than it actually shows. Idk why my camera doesn't capture the color very well. Maybe I need to try to take pictures in natural lighting. I loved your post about the Hombre lol. It really does look like extreme roots when it's that dramatic. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

  2. You can play around more with food coloring, but you have to be careful, because it can stain if you drop it. I did rainbow to my hair last year, but i didn't get a picture of it. I also used art chalks from Michael's. Great post!

    1. How did you do that with food coloring? I bought two different brands of food coloring and can't get them to work on my hair. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

  3. The reason why professional organic hair color products costs a bit more than chemical based professional color products is all in the ingredients. The organic raw ingredients required to make high quality organic color is several times more expensive than the cheaper synthetically created chemicals used in chemical based color.
