With so many hair color trends making their way into the beauty scene, there’s a good chance you have some serious hair color envy. And what better way to give them all a try than with a temporary hair color? Thinking there’s no way you could possibly try them all without ending up with some seriously damaged hair? Well, wash out hair colors are a great, non-damaging alternative to traditional hair dyes. Keep reading to learn about our best temporary hair color products, including a temporary hair color spray and hair makeup, plus find out how to use them to switch up your beauty look with no commitment.
Wash out hair color and temporary hair color are one and the same; they’re a type of hair dye that—as you may have guessed—washes out in just one shampoo! Yes, you read that correctly! This is super convenient if you want 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 a night out. Think of wash out hair color as a quick fix for your hair color needs.
Ready to try using wash out hair color in your beauty routine? Here are our best temporary hair color options:
L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray: This temporary hair color spray allows you to experiment with color and instantly get bold looks when you want them. You can spray, play, wash, and repeat with no bleaching needed! With 10 colors ranging from rose gold to pastel mint, let your imagination run wild. This wash out hair color is designed for both blondes and brunettes and works on all hair types—so everyone can get in on the fun.
How to use it: Shake well before applying, then hold the can four to six inches from dry hair and spray. Wait a few minutes for the color to dry completely. Your color will appear more prominent when it dries, so spray a little at a time.
L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color: This hair makeup has a gentle, ammonia-free leave-in formula that washes out in one shampoo. There’s no need for bleach or gloves; it’s just about as easy as hair coloring can get. The hair dye has 10 colors to choose from, but you can also mix and match for a totally customized color. So, give it a try and get creative with your color!
How to use it: Place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothing, then apply a dime-sized amount of product onto a thin, dry strand of hair using your fingers. Comb or brush your hair to distribute the color and allow your hair to air dry. You can also break out a blow dryer to speed up the process.
