There are lots of tips on how to care for the blue hair.
BELOW THE TECHNICAL PART OF BLUE HAIR
- Use cold water to wash your hair.
The use of cold water will help the hair to lighten and make the color more durable. I was okay with this in the summer, but couldn’t understand this on a cold winter morning. Along with this, some people say use apple cider vinegar. Be aware though, that the dye will disappear, and you need to be careful about dyeing your skin color and surrounding shower.
- Do not wash your hair daily.
Bathing is necessary for each person. And dry shampoo is the first choice. It’s effortless to use, and you feel it is like baby powder to explore on your fingers later.
- Upkeep differs from blonde highlights.
With regular hair dye, people worry about the ingrown roots. With bright colors, the sources can be a problem, but the more significant concern is the fading of gray. While a lot of blue color lasts longer than usual (which I said is about 3-4 weeks), my hair has started to fade. To keep the fun going, I bought the Manic Panic.
- Use a good product.
My stylist used the Pravana Vivids line. The inventors of Manic Panic from NYC, have a beauty salon here and start their company back in the 90s. They have different periods for extended color periods, as well as blood flow.
- Do not let sweat.
I can only imagine that having blue sweat flowing down my back during lessons won’t be very appealing. Another finding is that my skin is not the only place to dye my hair! In addition to shirts, pillowcases, hairbrushes, and towels, it can be worn on other people. Last summer, it was hotter when we went camping in a desert in Burning Man. In the morning, my partner’s armpit is streaked with green! So every morning, I’ll get baby wipes to clean my armpits. We both laughed. And finally, I used this procedure to remove the dye from my ears and neck during the trip.
The decision to dye his blue hair was a bold, brave, and powerful step. Like I want the world to not only pay attention to me but also tell the world that I deserve to see. However, a part of me didn’t expect much response. I hope the same feedback as to when I remove my hair — lots of compliments, but no genuine compliments. For me, I felt a lot more comfortable and felt a lot more attractive with unnatural blue hair, just like I did with extraordinary blonde hair color. But because blue is still not famous, I anticipate that I will get attention.
You may notice that there seems to be a difference in the way black people look to give compliments or are not afraid to say the obvious more often than whites. I do not know why it is just an observation. Does this happen to you? I think it will be a future adventure to open up for the unexpected wonders that come with learning about others.
Kara – one of my friends, who also has blue hair now, I’ve observed the way she feels compliments, we agree that it happens the most when we think the ball. Shady is the perfect color. I am telling her how painful it was for me to go to the Midwest to meet family, who are traditional and conservative. I was afraid of their potential embarrassment when being seen with me because of my blue hair. When I finally let go of my hair, causing all the colors (fading) to flow out, my aunt exclaimed that the blue was wonderful! I realized that I had let my doubts take me by knowing how much I liked my blue hair, something that others wanted.
How do strangers know the colors they see and like their perfect colors? They just let us know that they like what they see, right at that moment. Kara’s reflex changed her reaction. Now she told herself. Today, this is my ideal color. I agree. This blue-haired adventure taught us the lesson. We have learned to be open to praise, but they appear and do not place our self-esteem on them.
So it is true. Blue hair, nothing of interest, (about the others judging) and today a white woman yoga instructor came to see me and told me that she loved the color on my hair, and I knew very well. Thanks and recognize her comment.
