Ways To Naturally Dye Hair Amber - smartesthairstyles.com - Do you want to change your hair color? Amber is a beautiful shade, but it can be difficult to manage without bleach and/or hair dye. Don't worry - you have a few simple options right at your fingertips! We've answered some of your frequently asked questions so you can focus on getting the hair color of your dreams.
- What color is amber hair?
Amber is typically a warm, yellow-orange hue. There isn't really a universal "amber" shade. Sometimes amber has a more orange color while in other cases it can be brown in color. If you search for "amber hair" in a search engine, most of the results will show a deep orange or ginger color.
- How to make homemade amber hair dye?
Make a warm rusty orange hair dye using red henna powder. Mix ½ cup (56 g) henna powder with ⁄ 4 c (59 ml) cup water until you get a thick, mashed potato-like consistency. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and leave covered for about 12 hours.
If you have long hair, you might want to double or triple the recipe, just to be safe.
Shampoo your hair and protect your hairline. Washing your hair helps open up the hair shafts, allowing your hair to really soak into the color. Rinse out the shampoo and dab coconut oil along your hairline to keep the henna dye from staining your scalp.
Don't groom your hair now.
Distribute the color throughout your hair. Once you've applied the paste all over, cover your hair with a sturdy layer of plastic wrap. Leave the paste on your hair for 2-6 hours and then rinse out. Typically, this homemade hair color lasts between 4 and 6 weeks.
Feel free to try this color if you have darker hair, but you may not get as striking results.
- How do you make a dark red dye?
Use beet juice to get a cool shade of red. You can buy a jug of beet juice from your local grocery store or make your own juice using whole beets. Purchase or prepare enough juice to cover your hair to keep your dye job looking nice and even.
Cover your hair with the beetroot juice for 1 hour. Pour the juice directly over your hair and use a comb to work it through your curls. Then leave the juice on for 1 hour.
This method can get a bit messy, so it's best to do it over a sink or bathtub. Also, keep a few extra towels handy to clean up the mess.
Rinse your hair with cold water. Get in the shower until you've rinsed off all the leftover beet juice. Then gently blow dry your hair and admire your freshly toned hair!
Beet juice acts as a temporary dye and probably won't last more than a few weeks.
Beetroot juice may not work well if you have dark hair, but it might be worth a try.
- What other homemade amber colors can I make?
Carrot juice is a popular option when you want a warm, light orange hue. Make a homemade paint by mixing equal parts carrot juice and olive or coconut oil. Massage the mixture through your hair, then cover with plastic wrap for 1 hour. Then rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar.
You may not get the color you want at first. That's okay! Just repeat the coloring process until you are happy with the shade.
Unfortunately, carrot juice probably doesn't work well if you have darker hair.
Marigold flowers and dried calendula give your hair a soft, warm shade of red. let Simmer 590ml water and either 13g marigold blossoms or 7.5g dried marigold petals in a non - aluminum saucepan over low to medium heat . After 20 minutes, strain the flowers and add a splash of red wine to the mixture. Wash and condition your hair and place a large bucket or bowl at your feet in the bath or shower. Then pour the mixture over your head and let it collect in the bucket. Pour the mixture over your hair several times - then dry your hair outside in the sun and enjoy your new amber locks!
Feel free to re-dye your hair next time you wash it if you are not happy with the color.
Hobbyists do not suggest a specific amount of red wine for this recipe. Start with a small amount and add more as needed.
This particular recipe works best with light brown or brown hair.
- What if I have darker hair?
Try hair chalk or spray paint. Unfortunately, if you have black or dark brown hair, it's difficult to achieve stunning results without reaching for the bleach. If you prefer a bleach-free look, look online or at your local beauty salon for amber hair chalks or sprays.
Hair dye kits aren't natural, but they're a little less harsh on your hair than bleach.
If you're in a pinch, you can even dye your hair with sidewalk chalk.
- How can I make my amber hair last longer?
Don't wash your hair that often. Natural dyes like beet juice can give you a cool new look, but they don't last as long as traditional hair dye. Instead, put your regular shampoos in place and only wash your hair with cold water.
Opt for an all-natural box dye. There are tons of organic and all-natural dyes that can give you the color you love without the chemicals you hate. While no dye is completely chemical-free, brands like Herbaceuticals, Onc NaturalColors, and Clairol Natural Instincts are some natural options you can try.
