The wow factor from dip dyed hair is all about the colour contrast between the lengths and tips. But how do you get this look, and then keep both shades bright?
What is dip dye hair?
Dip dye hair gets its name from the finished effect: two-tonal hair that has one colour at the roots, and then abruptly changes into another - usually contrasting - shade halfway down (or even just on the tips). The hair literally looks as if it has been dipped in coloured dye.
How your hairdresser creates dip dye hair
Unless you have naturally light-coloured hair, your hairdresser will being by "lifting" (lightening) the section of the hair you want the contrasting colour on. They will then apply the new colour to the lifted part of the hair. A classic dip dye combination is a top brunette section and a blond lower section, but these days people are experimenting with bolder creations: blond with blue ends, or brunette with purple tips for example!
Keeping your colour bright
You don't have to use different haircare products on the two sections of hair, but colour protection is essential to prevent early fading. We recommend the Vitamino Color A Ox haircare collection by Serie Expert, in particular the Color 10 in 1 spray. Apply to towel-dried hair down the lengths and ends, then blow dry for exceptional shiny, vibrant and protected hair colour!
