fun temporary color for your hair! Depending on what type of pigment or eyeshadow used, it MAY stain hair. I got my pigments from : http://www.tkbtrading.com/
They have many great colors, and sample sizes are very generous and are about $1.50

The color will last 1 to 2 days, depending if you was it or not. The color comes out with shampoo.

*The area where I put the color in my hair is bleached, so the brightness and appearance of the color will vary upon hair color. Lighter colors would be best for darker hair

  • How to make a coloring & dying. Temporary Hair Color - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your supplies.
    In a small cup, mix some pigment and spray in conditioner
    (use a 1:1 ratio)
    I used Mane 'n Tail conditioning treatment spray I got at Sally Beauty Supply.

    If you want to color your hair with a pressed eyeshadow pigment, simply scape some of the pan with a small stick or spatula into the cup.

    *stay away from thick or non leave-in products, because the can cause your hair to look greasy, or 'crispy'.

    Once your hair is some-what dry, take a brush through your hair to remove any color clumps, and to let it blend in.

    Set with hairspray.

if you have darker hair, like medium brown do you have to bleach your hair to make this work?

Yes, cream works as well, just use more pigments.

If you're using a liquid leave in conditioner, use a 1 to 1 ratio. But if you're using a cream, I would add a little more pigment. And yes, you can store it! The liquid tends to dry out over time, but you can always add more conditioner or water
