When you think of making a bold hair statement, the likelihood of picking something like hot pink, pink ombré hair, or peach hair is pretty high. But what about all the other colors of the rainbow? Instead of picking a hair color idea simply because it fits in with what everyone else is doing, why not make a truly bold statement with lime green hair? The bright hue fits perfectly within the acid hair color trend while still being unique enough itself to instantly turn heads. Sound like your cup of tea? Below, we introduce you to our favorite lime green hair color, how to maintain this vivid hair color, and even ways to style it for optimal stylish effect.
Love the idea of taking a bright break from your regularly scheduled hair color and testing out something a bit more daring? Pick up a box of the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Lime Green. Simply start with a medium level blonde or lighter and follow the instructions on the box to transform your tresses into a lime green masterpiece. The best part? Since this particular product is a semi-permanent, if you’re not totally in love with the look, it will be gone in 4-10 shampoos, so you’ll be able to try another hair color out soon.
On the other hand, if you fall head over heels for your lime green hair color, it’s time to book an appointment with a professional to make your permanent vivid hair color a reality. Whenever it comes to hair colors that require lightening and ultra-bright colors, it’s best to enlist the help of a pro for the best chance of achieving the look you’re actually aiming for. Keep in mind that bright hair colors like lime green require bleaching, and the darker your starting shade, the more work may be required to achieve your desired hair color.
Once you’re done coloring your hair lime green, make sure you’re caring for it properly to help keep your color from fading so quickly. Reach for a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask 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. Use the hair mask once or twice a week in place of the conditioner. You can even use it as a pre-shampoo mask for added conditioning.
Apart from the hair care products you use to wash your hair, you’ll want to make sure that you wash it with lukewarm water, as super-hot water can strip your strands of essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller. Still, keep in mind that at some point you’ll need to touch up your tresses. So, it never hurts to have an extra box of lime green hair dye lying around for those days when you need a touch-up.
While lime green hair looks especially chic when paired with the season’s effortless style (you can achieve it with a few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray), we totally understand wanting to be a bit more creative with your locks. Instead of exposing your color-treated hair to heat, why not rock yet another super-stylish hairstyle trend: the slicked-back ‘do? This hairstyle looks edgy on any hair length, but we especially love when it’s paired with a short crop-talk about a style statement.
If you absolutely must use your straightener or curling wand, just be sure to protect your lime green hair with a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which is designed to provide 450-degree protection.
After going lime green, you may find you’re open to trying other vivid hair colors. To give you a little inspiration, check out our article, Seeing Blue: Here’s How to Find the Right Blue Hair Hue for Your Skin Tone.
