Splitting dye is a bold, irreverent technique that has been making waves in the hair community for some time now. This technique allows you to create intentional grey areas with your dye, creating an optical illusion that looks like your hair has split into different hues. Splitting dye can be used on natural hair as well as extensions and wigs. Because this technique involves applying two dyes instead of just one, it’s important to take the necessary precautions when performing this style. If you’re ready to dip your locks in dye again, check out our ultimate guide on how to split dye hair.
How To Split Dye Your Hair?
- You can achieve a very natural look by using just a small amount of hair dye.
- You can use a small amount of hair dye and then apply the same amount of conditioner to your hair, this way the result will be more natural-looking.
- You can use a small amount of hair dye directly on your scalp and then cover your head with plastic wrap or a shower cap, this way the result will be more natural-looking.
- You can dye your entire head at once, but if you do this make sure you do it with the same color to avoid an unnatural-looking effect.
- If you want to get that “blonde look” then use all over blonde hair dye and allow it to dry completely before removing it from your head or washing it out with water and shampooing/conditioning it once again afterward.
- You can also use a pre-lightened hair dye and then apply a dark color over the top of it, this will give you a very natural-looking result.
- You can use a mixture of hair dye and conditioner to achieve the desired result, as well as mix different shades of dye to achieve your desired look.
- You can also use hair dye in conjunction with other products such as henna or permanent black hair dye if you wish to achieve that “blonde” look without having to have your hair dyed blonde at all.
- If you want a very natural-looking result then do not bleach or lighten your hair prior to applying the hair dye, this will help prevent any unnatural-looking results from occurring when applying the color onto your head/hair.
- One thing to keep in mind is that if you are using any sort of bleaching agents such as peroxide or bleach on your scalp before applying the color it may cause some unwanted problems when applying the color onto your head/hair, so be careful not to overdo it with these types of products when using them on your scalp prior to applying the color onto your head/hair.
Warnings And Side Effects Of Splitting Dyeing?
- Do not apply a thick layer of dye to your hair. You should only apply enough to saturate your hair and not to the point where it will drip off your head.
- Do not use a lot of product when applying the dye, you should only use as much as you need to get the desired result.
- If you are splitting colors, make sure that you do not have any hair that is dyed in between the colors (i.e., if you are splitting blue from red and green from blue, make sure that there is no hair left with red in it).
- If you are using a color like blue or purple and none of your natural hair has any color it will be hard to get an even tone for example if all your hair is blue then splitting it will be difficult because there won’t be any red or yellow in there which can give some uneven results so make sure that you have some other colors in there also (i think this may be why they split colors rly hard)
- If using two different shades of the same color such as a light brown and dark brown then make sure that they are both equally saturated with the product before starting the second color, otherwise one will turn out lighter than the other and this could cause uneven coloring or even split dyes if one side turns out lighter than the other
- Make sure not to put too much product into your hair while splitting dyeing because this can cause the dye to run out of the hair and onto your skin, which is bad for your skin.
- Do not leave any hair in between the colors. If you do, the color may not take, and you could end up with uneven coloring.
- Do not put a lot of product into your roots when splitting dye because this can cause the color to run out of the hair and onto your skin, which is bad for your skin.
- If you are using a lot of product in one section make sure that it is enough to cover all of it so that it doesn’t come through onto other sections (in other words make sure that you have covered all of it before applying a new color).
- If you are splitting colors and you have a lot of hair, make sure that the hair is evenly saturated with the product before starting a new color (i.e., if you are splitting from red to yellow, make sure that all your hair has been dyed red before starting the yellow).
