Steps of using Bubble Hair Dye

Step 1: Put on the plastic cape (included in the bubble hair dye kit) and some old clothes that you don't mind getting stained while you dye your hair. 

Step 2: Cover the skin around your hairline with an oil-based skin care product (such as vaseline) to prevent the dye from staining your skin. 

Step 3: Wear the gloves that come with the bubble hair dye to protect your skin and keep them on whenever you're working with the bubble dye. 

Step 4: Comb your hair and remove any tangles so that the dye can be applied more evenly. 

Step 5: Section your hair into multiple smaller sections so that the dye can be applied more easily and evenly. Get your comb and divide your hair into a center parting. Then divide each side of your parting into 2-4 smaller sections depending on how thick your hair is. 

Step 6: Pour& mix solutions within the bubble dye kit together according to the instruction (each brand's instruction may vary so read them carefully) and mix gently by inverting the bottle. Avoid shaking the bottle.

Step 7: Place the foam cap on the bottle and carefully dispense the bubble into your palm until you have a tennis ball-sized dollop of foam.

Step 8: Apply the foam to your hair section by section. Run your palms down your hair, starting at the roots. Make sure to get an even covering of the foam in your hair and to work your way around your head. Repeat this step until all sections of your hair have been covered with foam. 

Step 9: Gather all of your hair on the top of your head and use your fingers to massage the foam thoroughly into your scalp and hair. This ensures that the foam is evenly distributed throughout your hair. 

Step 10: Leave the foam in your hair for 20 - 45 min (varies depending on the brand, make sure to read instructions carefully). 

Step 11: Rinse your hair thoroughly to remove all of the bubble hair dye. 

Step 12: Apply the rinse-off treatment (included in the bubble dye kit) to your hair, then rinse off after 2~3 minutes.

Step 13: For maintenance, use colour-protectant shampoo and conditioner if you want the hair colour to last longer. Keep reading to find out what to use.
