Pink Hair FAQ: How To Have Pastel Hair

Sunday, May 6, 2018

By far my most asked question is what hair dye I use, so I wanted to compile some of my most asked questions all about my pink hair in one convenient place!

What hair dye do you use?
I have been using Special Effects in Cupcake Pink, diluted with a bit of opaque white or cream conditioner, for years now and highly recommend it!

Do you have to bleach your hair?
My natural hair color is a dark blonde, and in order to have pastel colors bleaching is mandatory. It actually took me a couple years to get it just right.

How do you keep your hair looking healthy?
First of all, thank you so much for thinking my hair looks healthy! It definitely has a lot of damage, bleaching your hair over the course of five years will do that, but I try to keep my hair as moisturized as possible. Products I love: evo The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask, Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Mask Honey Treasures, L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm, and Trader Joe's Coconut Oil.

I definitely recommend avoiding heat styling whenever possible - though this is a rule I don't follow as often as I should myself... *cough*

For hair tutorials and advice, I love Angelina's incredible pastel hair tips and tutorials, and Keiko Lynn's beautifully done, easy to follow step-by-step hair tutorials!

  1. Your hair always looks amazing! I usually have some sort of pastel color in my hair, but it seems to fade pretty quickly. Probably the hot showers ! :P

  2. You're such hair goals! My dream is to have pastel pink or lavender colored hair but I have thin black hair and it's pretty damaged. Maybe one day. ♥
