I get a lot of questions about my hair—specifically, how do I dye my very dark, very thick hair all kinds of Skittles colors without going bald? I’ve even written a hair FAQ to deal with such questions. But we figured it would be helpful to SHOW you how to dye your hair and not just talk about it. Now, I have a big confession to make: my DAD dyes my hair! I just mix the products and do touch-ups afterward.
In this video my dad and I will show you how we get my hair purple. If you have a super understanding dad like I do, or a rad friend to help, this video will give you guys some pointers. Disclaimer: if you mess up it ain’t my fault! Go to a professional if you’re scared—that’s what I did the first time.
