Don’t you hate it when you look at your hair and you feel it looks the same day after day?
Whew I’m glad I’m not the only one
I know I go through those thoughts every season ,every other season or some life event where I want a new look but just don’t know what to do. I know for me most likely it does lead to color or a cut. I’m not to eagered for a dramatic cut because it seems to permanent and I sometimes want color but the responsibility of color can be frustrating. If your looking for a dramatic cut we posted fabulous tapered cut styles to choose from here Top 20 Tapered Cuts from the Past or Present.
The thing is I want the color but not the commitment or the responsibility of it. The best thing about temporary color it’s just that it’s TEMPORARY so if I want to go red one day, purple the next a little blond look at the tips, I can do that. If I really love it, I can always go permanent but I at least want to do a trial run first before making that full commitment to a color. As you can see all the pros of the temporary color I at least want to give you the FYI on the con as well. By placing in temporary color your hair will become dry with the temporary color but as you will see in some of the videos below that you can easily resmoisturaize to still have your moisturized look once you apply the color. I want to advise you to already have your style in place prior to placing the color in, if it’s just too dry for you then definitely begin to re-moisturize after your color has dried. Also, depending which temporary color you uses the color can come off between 1-2 washes. Each video is using an affordable different kind of spray color and gel that can give you different looks. Below they’re three ways you can use temporary color without having to sign the dotted line
4Adaniels uses Loreal Liquid Chalk which you can find here* and yes it’s budget friendly.
In this video she gives detailed instructions how you can use the liquid chalk and how to apply. You want to make sure you wear gloves and and old t-shirt. It’s also great if you comb through your hair then blow dry immediately so it can instantly dry. I love how she puts her hair in twists first applies the liquid chalk, squeezes out the excess, comb it through on the ends and blow dry the ends to get this fabulous look. Her twist out instantly get a new look
Ms. Naturally Mary video uses High Beams Intense Temporary Spray on Hair Color which you can find here *
She uses this color after her hair is already styled in a wash n go then begins to spray the color she wants. What I love about these sprays is how you can mix them to get your own color that works for you. Of course the colors such as violet and red will show up more on black hair but mixing it can give a beautiful plum or pink color. This can look great for a night out or the new look craving that you have been dying to try.
ThatisKei video shows exactly how you can add temporary color on a TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) or simply a short cut. In this video, Kei tends to use a towel or old t-shirt on her forehead so it doesn’t get any spray on it. As you can see she has tried different colors to see what works best on her hair. You can decide what section of your hair works best for you to give you that look your going for. As you can see Kei has used spray and manic panic gel to show you the different looks you can get. As for the spray she used Jerome Russell spray which can be found at your local Sally’s Beauty Supply or online here* and Manic Panic gel which you can find online here*.
The best part about all these looks are the PRICES!! Each one is either 8-9 dollars or lower. We love having instant looks to try without breaking the bank.
Do you think you’ll try this out? Which color would you go for?
