How to dye your hair pink without chemical dyes
Pink hair is always fun to try. These techniques are semi permanent and will fade out overtime. These dyes are also much safer than chemical dyes. They are better for you and the environment. Before trying any of these you should know that the color shows up best with light colors of hair. If you try to use these with dark hair the color will show up as more of a pink or red tint. Bleaching your hair to a lighter color first is the easiest way to get a bright shade of pink.
Using food coloring
You can use food coloring to dye your hair pink. This way is pretty inexpensive and the colors usually turn out pretty bright.
What you will need
- Pink food coloring
- Half a cup of conditioner
- Small bowl
- Paint brush for an applicator (optional)
What to do next
- Put the conditioner into the small bowl
- Add one or two drops of the dye
- Mix the conditioner and food coloring well
- Use the paint brush to apply the mixture
- Leave in for four to six hours
- Rinse out your hair with water

It is best not to wash your hair for a couple of days so the color has a little more time to set in. The color may look a little red at first but should fade to pink quickly.
Natural pink dyes that wash out quickly
Putting cranberry juice in your also works. This will turn light blonde hair pink but any other colored hair may look more red. You just put cranberry juice into your hair and let it set for the day and wash out with water in the evening.
Putting beet juice in your hair can also make light blonde hair turn pink. Darker hair will turn more of a red color. But the red will fade to pink quickly. Put the beet juice in your hair and leave in for the day. Wash the beet juice out with warm water at the end of the day.
These two options will last only about a week tops. But since they are only temporary they are useful to see if you like having pink hair. These two choice are completely natural so they are safe for you and the environment.
