What Is the Drip Dye Hair Color Technique?
You’re probably pretty familiar with some of the popular salon hair color techniques, like balayage and ombré hair. But what about the drip dye hair color technique? This hair color technique involves a colorist dripping various colors onto hair to create a gorgeous rainbow pattern. Pink, blue, purple, whatever colors you choose! Sounds super-pretty, right? Now, when you’re dealing with permanent hair color, it’s important to note that your hair care routine should change post-dye job. You should use products formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm.
How to Fake Drip Dye Hair Color at Home
If you don’t want to go the permanent route but you still want to try a multi-tonal drip dye hair color, you can do so with our temporary hair color sprays, the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Sprays, which are available in 10 trendy shades. Just spray them on wherever you want color to appear and you’re good to go! Here’s how to use our temporary hair color sprays.
Step 1: Choose Your Hair Colors
Before you spray on color, you have to pick your hair colors. Whether you choose pastel hues or brighter shades, we’ve got you covered with 10 gorgeous hair colors from rose gold to blue. Feel free to mix and match however many shades you want—when it comes to the drip dye hair color technique, you’ve got quite a lot of options!
Step 2: Protect your clothes
You don’t want to get hair color on your clothes, now do you? Nope, we thought not! So, place a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothing.
Step 3: Shake, shake, shake
It’s not time to spray on hair color just yet. Remember to shake the can well before each use.
Step 4: Get ready to spray
Now it’s time to have some fun. Hold the can 4-6 inches away from dry hair and spray. Use different colors to create your faux drip dye hair color.
Step 5: Be patient
Patience is a virtue—especially when it comes to hair color. Wait a few minutes for the colors to dry completely, as they start to become more visible as they dry. Keep in mind that less is more when it comes to our temporary hair color sprays. Plus, over-spraying your hair may cause hair to feel dry. That being said, if you’re looking for allover color, you may need to use more than one can.
Step 6: Wash your hair color out at the end of the day
Once you’ve gone about your day flaunting your temporary drip dye hair color all over town, it’s time to wash it all out. Hop into the shower and reach for shampoo, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo. Don’t forget the conditioner! Once you’re done shampooing, slather on conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner, leave it on for 1-3 minutes, then rinse out thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. The next time you want to dry drip dye hair, just repeat this process again and you’ll be good to go.
