How to dye your hair with Splat Hair Dye

Updated on June 15, 2012

Rockin' Hair

Are you a bit on the wild side? Does your natural brown hair make you frown? Looking for something brighter and eyecatching? Alternative hair coloring may be just the thing to turn that frown upside down!

SPLAT Hair Dye comes with a powder bleach, it has a blue base to get rid of icky brassy tones. It also comes with gloves, the actual hair dye, two applicator caps, and the liquid developer for the powder bleach to be poured into and mixed. Before you get out of hand, I know what you're thinking. I'm sure it goes something like this, "I read those directions, that bleach thing has the possibility of exploding! What the sunshine pancakes is that all about? I'm not willing to risk my life for awesome hair color!"

I'll tell you what it's about. It is because you have chemicals in a bottle. They are trapped inside that developer bottle, the pressure is the reason that could happen. The only reason this would happen is if you left it unattended for a period of time. In other words don't mix the bleach and then remember you have to go pick up your little brother from band practice. So, when you mix it, use it! Don't let the scary warning put you off completely. Fear not my worried little snowflakes! I will assist you with this journey.

Getting Started..

First put Petroleum Jelly around the edges of your forehead to protect from staining. This stuff DOES stain bad! Grab a towel, a shirt you don't care about and let's begin. What you're going to want to do is pour all the powder bleach into the liquid developer bottle, shake it thoroughly away from your face (feel free to make goofy faces while doing so) for about 60 seconds. Change the original cap from the liquid developer to the applicator cap. On the bottle it says to leave standing for a minute. If you simply can't stand to look at it for a minute, it is alright to just get it over with and start applying with gloves. Make sure you get all your hair with the bleach. Do not rub it into your hair like that lovely smelling shampoo you have. This isn't shampoo, people. It is bleach! Be warned, it is also extremely liquid-y and thus annoying to keep in one place if you're doing it with just your gloved hands.


Play on the computer. Watch a few YouTube videos. Get some homework done. Poke your neighbor on the forehead. Be productive in that in the time you have to waste when keeping this stuff on your head from 30 to 35 minutes. When your hair is yellow, or pretty close to it, wash it out thoroughly. I cannot stress that enough. Get all that icky stuff outta your hair. If some of your hair turns out not to be the exact same color as most of your hair, chill out. It won't matter much when you're putting on the dye. Blow drying your hair is optional. Personally, after damaging it with bleach; I let it dry on its own. You're going to notice when it's no longer wet that your hair feels not so attractive--like dried grass my friend.

Time to put on the dye!

After your hair is completely dry, part it into sections. Put on the applicator cap provided and start to apply the hair dye. Make sure you are careful and don't end up with that hair dye on your forehead. The dye is also very flowing and all over the place just like the bleach. If are a bit of a clutz, it's okay. It will wash off eventually after some hard scrubbing depending on how low it sits on your stained forehead. It is very pigmented so careful not to get it on grandma's sink or bathtub. Let that dye for 30 to 35 minutes and follow step two again. Be productive. Wash that hair out. It is going to be a while before that water runs clear of the dye, so get comfortable in the shower. It is alright (and a little bit needed) to condition your newly colored locks.

Flaunt it!

You do not want to go to sleep with this wet new hair because you'll wake up with whatever color you chose for your hair, now conveniently stained onto your pillow. Same goes with clothing. Blow dry it. Now check out that new hair color! Wow. It's vibrant, huh? Take some pictures of that hair dye and strut your stuff because your hair color is pretty rockin'!

In closing, I currently have my hair colored with SPLAT using their "Luscious Red." The color is one of the best, if not the best I've ever used. It was very straight forward. They have a lot of other colors you may want to chose from including Aqua Rush, Pink Fetish, Lusty Lavender, etc. Hope this helps you out when you give your own alternative hair color a go!

This is my head of hair, that I got with the product. It is more of a candy apple red hair in person. It is beautiful and I just love it!

      I thought this was the brand made for darker hair w/o needing to bleach... that's even what the box claims in the funky colors (I'm going between blue & purple)
