How To Get Orange Hair
They say orange is the new black and I can’t agree more. Orange is the color of the season and from dresses to lipsticks, orange is ruling the fashion world like never before. So if you can have orange in your clothes, in your makeup, in your accessories then why not some on your hair?!
Orange is the color of sunset, it is warm and welcoming. This is great for those with warmer skin tones. It gives a lovely natural glow to your face. However to add a punk element, you can go for vivid tangy hair. Yes, there are many shades of orange available and thus you can play with the vibrancy of the color. Say there is pumpkin orange, pantone orange and tangerine orange for the more daring ones, and then there is the more subtle burnt orange, brownish orange or alloy orange. You can try orange streaks if it is your first time. But be careful before trying this color. Just make sure that your skin tone suits the shade you are trying to sport.
Now that the festive season is already knocking at the doors, why not give your hair a makeover and liven up your hair with some cute, funky notes of an orange hair color.
Orange hair with commercial dye-
You can choose the easily available commercial hair colors available in markets. Confused about how to color at home!!! Worry not, I shall tell you the process step by step and this way you can save oodles of money that you might have spent in the salon on getting your hair colored orange. First, choose ammonia and peroxide free hair color.
Step 1- You should always conduct an allergy test first. Mix a small amount of the hair color and apply behind the ear or on elbow or leg. Rinse after an hour. Observe that skin for some 48 hours so as to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction.
Step 2- If you have passed the above mentioned test successfully, start with the hair dye procedure. To begin with, dress yourself in some of your old clothes and ensure that you wear gloves before getting into the procedure.
Step 3- As per instructions, mix the colorant and developer into desirable amounts.
Step 4- Now with the help of a coloring brush apply hair color from your hair roots to all the way down to your hair ends. Evenly coat your hair.
Step 5- Cover your head with a plastic shower cap, ensure that you cover all of your hair. You can also secure it with a hair clip.
Step 6- Hair dyes have many chemicals and if they are left for any excess time duration other than instructed, the chemicals may behave harsh and damage your hair. So don’t cross the time instructed by the company.
Step 7– After you the instructed time duration is over, remove the head cap and wash your hair as per instructions.
(You can also bleach your hair before using the hair color. Bleached hair is everything you need for extremely vivid color on hair.)
Temporary Ways to Color hair-
Not everybody has got the attitude and not everybody has got the permission to doll up tresses with funky, permanent hues. There comes temporary hair coloring to your rescue. So, add a punk element to your look with temporary hair color. Just assemble the colors you want to run through your hair and style your hair the way you want it. There are several ways by which you can temporarily color your hair, like chalking, using color sticks, hair shadows, washable cream colors, hair sprays, colored mascaras or hair extensions.
Henna is the key to natural red orange henna hair dye. Henna gives a subtle orange color to your hair. If you have dark hair the orange tint will be darker, if you have blonde hair the orange tint will be much brighter. I have naturally brown hair and when I apply henna on my hair, I notice a pretty orange tint in the sunlight and also under artificial light. You can also add carrot juice to your henna pack for a more vivid color.
So, here are three ways by which you can color your hair orange. Which one are you choosing?
