With so many hair color trends making their way into the beauty scene this season, (hello pumpkin spice and dishwater blonde hair!), there’s a good chance you’ve at least thought of the idea of changing up your hair. And if this is your first holiday season with friends and family IRL in more than a year, it makes sense if you want a special look. But, we get it — dyeing your hair can be daunting. What if you hate the color? What if your roots grow out faster than you can get a touch up? There’s so much to consider. 

If you’re looking for a non-committal way to experiment with a new look, try a temporary, wash out hair color. It allows you to test different hues without the damage that can come with constantly coloring your strands — not to mention there’s no commitment. Interested? Keep reading to learn more about how temporary, wash out hair colors work and our favorite formula to try. 

What Is Wash Out Hair Color?

Temporary hair color and wash out hair color are one and the same. They’re a type of hair dye that washes out after just one shampoo — yep, you can literally wash out this hair dye in the shower. Whether you’re looking to try out a new hair color but aren’t ready to commit for the long haul or simply want to rock a fun new shade for the holiday season or a special night out, temporary hair colors are super convenient and a great way to experiment before diving deep into the world of permanent hair dye. Alternatively, if you’re someone who swaps their hair color as frequently as the seasons change, it’s a great option that can preserve your hair health and avoid excess damage to your strands.

How To Use Wash Out Hair Color

To use, shake the bottle well before applying. Hold the can four to six inches away from dry hair and spray wherever you want the color. The tint will become more vivid after it dries down, so be sure to spray a little at a time and wait a few minutes until it’s completely dry before applying more. Repeat until you’ve reached your desired shade.
