How To Get Blue Hair

There are many not so pleasant stories from people attempting to get blue hair and end up green, or beauty adventurers achieve blue hair, but it eventually becomes green. Why is that? And how do you maintain it??? Let’s go over what you need to do before and after!

Getting blue hair and maintaining it is quite a commitment! It is a long process and takes a lot of patience.


Blue Hair: What Do I Need to Do?

Before applying your blue hair dye, your hair needs to be lightened to a platinum blonde (almost white). To read our tips for bleaching, click here.

Make sure you don’t have any yellow or orange tones in your hair! If you do, your hair is guaranteed to turn into a sea green because

   YELLOW + BLUE = GREEN

 

 

To achieve platinum blond hair, you will most likely need to bleach your hair multiple times.

 

Ok, Platinum Blonde, CHECK! What Next?

Before you apply that gorgeous blue color, make sure you’re not allergic to it by doing a skin test!

Then, apply either petroleum jelly or coconut oil on your skin around the hairline, neck, and ears to prevent skin stains.

 USEFUL TIP: If you’re worried about staining your shower, you can prevent this by also applying oil on your shower/tub. You can use any inexpensive kitchen oil such as canola or vegetable oil. After you’re done with the whole coloring process, simply wipe off.

 Make sure to have gloves with you too for the dyeing process unless you want “Smurf” hands.

Once that is done, TIME TO COLOR! When applying the dye, make sure you fully saturate the hair to get the best blue hair. You can leave in the dye for about 30-45 minutes and rinse.

How To Maintain Blue Hair

Most crazy color hair dye is semi-permanent hair dye, which means it’ll fade quickly, especially if you wash it often. This is common for all semi-permanent hair colors. What most avid beauty adventurers do is:

-Try using a dry shampoo to skip washing your hair. Our experienced bold hair influencers say they wash their hair about 2-3 times a week

-When you do wash your hair, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner is A MUST! Avoid shampoos that contain sulfate or promote volume.

-Use a deep conditioner at least once a week. Your hair will be dry from bleaching, so you want to keep those gorgeous blue locks healthy by keeping them hydrated!

Optional:

-Use a leave-in treatment to keep your blue hair looking healthier

-You can also use a color-depositing shampoo to increase the duration of your blue hair

 

Alright, folks, that is the GIST of it! It may sound like a lot of work, but it’s actually not that bad once you get the hang of it!

Hair is part of every person’s identity so what does colorful hair mean? The answer to that can be an endless array of expressions. Splat is diving deeper into the meaning of colorful hair by going one-on-one with talented influencers from YouTubers to martial artists who identify themselves not only with their talents but with their colorful hair as well.

This month, Splat will be launching a campaign called #TRUECOLOR. This campaign is a mini web series of interviews with inspirational influencers discussing true identity through their “True Color”. In the web series, each influencer will be talking about what they do, why they do it, and of course, how their colorful hair is part of their true identity.

Bold hair color is not just a hair trend. In a way, colorful hair is turning into a lifestyle in which we actively choose to express ourselves. Colorful hair is a commitment we make for ourselves simply because we feel that it is our #TRUECOLOR. When someone makes the decision to change their hair color, there is usually a reason behind it whether it may be a new chapter in your life or a change in yourself. We want to hear those stories and share them.

If you have a story, send them over to [email protected] or call 1-866-SPLAT20 or simply post them on our social sites with #TRUECOLOR and #SPLATSQUAD.

Can’t wait to hear them! 

 

Best Music Festival Hair - Colorful Hairstyles for Festivals

Splat Music Festival Hair

It’s that time of year again where our skin need sunlight, our ears need live music, and our hearts long to be free. Music festival season is all about inspiration and to simply have fun! Coachella is around the corner along with other music festivals and we’re about to give you our take on some of our favorite colorful music festival hair ideas.

  1. Glitter Roots

    Sprinkling glitter on your roots/hair, body, and face will definitely make you stand out within the crowd.
    Music festivals are meant to be loud musically and visually! So be generous with the glitter! We
    recommend getting bigger glitter to have more of a pop and sparkle to your look like the one below.

  2. The Classic of the Coachella Hair Ideas: The Dutch
    Braid

    We call this the “O.G.” of Coachella hair ideas. Music festivals can get really hot so having you hair
    braided tightly will help keep you cool. One of our favorite looks is, of course, Kylie Jenner’s rainbow
    dutch braid of pink, blue, yellow, and lime green.

  3. The Top Bun

    This is one of the easiest hairstyles you can do for Coachella (and it should only take about 5-10 minutes).
    One of our favorite top bun looks is below. We love the color transitions from blue, to violet, pink, orange,
    and yellow. Finish it off with a small braid on the side, and glitter with hairspray on the other side.
