If you have been following Kylie Jenner, then you know that her hair colors are something similar to the 50 Shades of Grey. Also leaving us surprised and perplexed as to how she managed to dye her hair that temporary hair color without ruining her hair.
Kylie started 2019 with iced blue hair color, showing off the mood for 2019. But within a few days, she sported a whole new color by dying her hair blonde. And just a few days ago, she switched up her look by dying her hair a dark brunette color that actually looks amazing on her.

If you want to start on a temporary hair color journey like that of Kylie Jenner this year, then you need to read some of these suggestions from top hair stylists. Dying our hair is a way of self-expression and a major fashion statement. Here is everything you need to know about dying your hair without damaging it too much.
Before you go dye happy, read the following hair color ideas and suggestions:
#1 Get a professional to dye your hair
If you can’t afford to pay expensive hair salon prices, get a good friend to come over and dye your hair for you that has experience dying hair. Never try dying your hair alone, as it is a recipe for disaster and you will just end up spending more money to get it fixed by a professional.
#2 Choose the best hair color for your skin tone
Hair stylists say one of the biggest factors for damaging your hair is caused by choosing the wrong tone or shade for your skin tone and then having to get it re-dyed shortly after to repair the fix the hair color.
#3 You get what you pay for
Did you stumble upon a magical formula for bleaching your hair naturally online and it only costs $25? If so, run, run far away! When it comes to bleaching your hair, which is absolutely necessary if you want a lighter shade of temporary hair color, you get what you pay for. Look for bleaches that have additives such as nourishing additives to help prevent your hair from being damaged.
#4 Slather on that conditioner
The thicker, curlier and darker hair you have the more often you will need to condition your hair, even if you have bleached it. Bleaching damages your hair, no matter how you look at it, but to mitigate any damage caused, use a hair mask weekly. Use every night a week before and after dying your hair, to strengthen and heal your hair.
#5 Don’t wait too long to touch it up
One of the biggest mistakes is waiting too long between touch-ups. If you can see more than 1-inch of root growth, it is too much because the stylists will need to bleach your entire head of hair again. Mark it on your calendar to touch-up your hair every 4 to 6 weeks.
#6 Use the right shampoo and conditioner
Do you hate how your new hair color turns into a brassy tone within a few weeks? Keep that beautiful recently dyed hair look, by using shampoos and conditioners that are infused with natural purple pigments to offset color loss.
#7 Avoid washing your hair
Shampoo your hair as infrequently as possible, and avoid washing your hair in hot water. Instead use lukewarm water. As hot water will open up the hair cuticle, causing the hair dye to disappear. To keep your hair clean, spray your roots with a dry shampoo.
Also, avoid washing your hair a few days prior to bleaching your hair. This helps to build up your hair’s natural oils and to strengthen the cuticle. Washing your hair strips your hair of natural oils and irritates the scalp. Now, if you need some hair color ideas, just look at Kylie Jenner’s Instagram page to get inspired.
