What I Used To Dye My Hair Blue

how to dye your hair blue

Good morning, what’s goings on in the lands of Zamundas! (aye Snapchat fam)

SO. In my mind, I had quit the blue. I thought it was hindering my chances to be on TV and I thought if I looked… like… regular, it would happened (like I can really be regular). But TV just hasn’t happened yet. And for a millisecond, I thought I was too old for blue hair. Y’all know that didn’t last long. Cause I ain’t too old for anything! But seriously. I am back to dating the blue again and I kinda feel like this is my signature (part 2, because lets face it, the grey is my signature!).

Once I realized all the “I’m too this or that’s” were merely lies and fearful thoughts that arrived once my greatness appeared, I grabbed my bottle of blue dye and channeled my inner rockstar.

I’ll probably do a how-to when I do my next touch up. I was just so anxious about the new year and having a semi-new look I just went for it all in the middle of my sink on New Years Eve and then thought, “oop my hair is blue again and I didn’t record it”. Next time, promise!

But it’s really simple. I just parted a small section in the front of my hair, tied a ponytail holder around it about half way down (that’s how I get the ombre look–on top of having grey hair) and then I apply the dye. I left this on for about 45 minutes and I sat with a heated cap on as recommended on the bottle. And VOILA, I am blue. I dyed my hair blue before and it was more like a rinse. Here’s that video.

In case you’ve never heard of this brand, here are the facts: Manic Panic is a vegan semi-permanent dye fortified with conditioners that add moisture and act as a filler to hair that has been pre-lightened. Your hair won’t get as blue as mine if it hasn’t been lifted or bleached. But this stuff is pretty dope and will still give you a nice blue tint. And sometimes that’s all you really need, right.

They also have lipsticks and other sparkly things. They are on my list to try so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, get like me. LOL.

    Love it! I’m thinking about doing something similar (gray hair too), but worry that I’ll have to cut or bleach it out. Does it fade eventually? Or does it have to grow out? Not that you’d want it to because it looks fabulous on you.
