Dyeing your hair with the colored crepe paper actually works! Intrigued to try it yourself? Keep scrolling to find out how to do this hair hack yourself:

Step 1: Choose your color for dyeing your hair with tissue paper.

Want pink, blue or purple hair? Once you pick the color you want to dye your hair with, find the tissue paper the matches.

Step 2: Create the dye.

When dyeing your hair with tissue paper, you’ll obviously need to create the dye yourself. To start, fill a bowl up with boiling water, and then add in your tissue paper. To help get the dye out of the paper, add salt to the water and mix.

Step 3: Remove the tissue paper.

Once your tissue paper is soaked and sitting in the water for a few minutes, remove the paper. Make sure to squeeze the paper out like you would a washcloth. This will help ensure you’ve gotten the most dye possible out of the tissue.

After your hair has stayed in the dye for 10 minutes, remove it and rinse with cold water then blowdry. Remember, this color is just temporary, so you don’t need to be afraid to try a vibrant hue like @leonacavalcante. It will wash out within a few washes and will fade even quicker if you use hot water. If you want to get the most out of your color, we recommend using a set like TRESemmé Botanique  Color Vibrance & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Your color will still eventually fade, but it will help the hue last as long as possible.
