How to Dye Your Hair PINK at Home : Step by step Process

How about girls? Today we are going to learn everything or almost everything about how to dye your hair light pink , pastel pink or pink in the comfort of your home. Also, you will know the tips and essential points for girls who aspire to have hair in fantasy tones.

What you should know before dyeing your hair pink

I think it’s worth mentioning that I myself spent three years of my life (13-16) with the fancy-tone colored braids. I’ve gone pink, orange, purple, and even a failed attempt at blue, which ended in an attractive green. Therefore, the notes below did not come from mere theoretical research, which I have seen in practice what it is to have colored hair.

Healthy hair is essential!

Before trying to be in the latest fashion whenever it goes out, you should ask yourself if your hair will withstand the aggressive treatments that you will use.

Is your hair elastic, dry, porous, fragile and scrubby? Forget the pink tint for now. If you can go to a professional and have your hair analyzed, if not, start to recover it with these treatments for each type of hair at home that we offer you.

Hair may need to be bleached

The pink dye should only be chosen over light hair colors and the intensity of pink to be achieved will be proportional to the degree of discoloration you have , that is, the brighter the hair, the less dark the dyed pink will be. So, if your hair was not previously colored above 8 degrees – Light Blonde, you will need to bleach your hair before starting this treatment.


Taking into account that discoloration causes yellowish-orange reflections in the hair, we must neutralize them before proceeding with the pink dye, for this you must use anti-yellowing shampoos or masks.

Why is such a procedure necessary? Well, it cannot be said that it is mandatory, however, the current tone that our hair has affects the final result of the dye. Think about basic colorimetry: pink on orange tends to turn out a red color, while being more yellow tends to turn orange. You may not see these aspects in the first few days, but make sure that the pink background color will fade after the first few washes.

Maintenance of pink hair discoloration!

The maintenance of hair dyed in fancy colors (pink, purple, blue, orange, etc.) will be constant. Weekly, biweekly or monthly, depending on the daily care routine you have and also how discoloration affects you, there will always be a need to adjust the tone over time. To do this, simply reapply the chosen dye (pure or diluted in creams and masks) when deemed necessary.

Psychologically prepare to see your colorful towels and bedding. Especially in the first days after coloring your hair, any place where you lay or rest your head is at great risk of acquiring a pinkish hue. Be careful also with the walls 😀

Color uniformity is barely achieved throughout the hair

Either because of the remains of the old stains, because of the difference in porosity between the areas of the hair or because of the typical lack of uniformity in the discolorations, you can hardly obtain a perfectly uniform tone to paint the hair pink unless the dye chosen is a very strong pink. So rest and relax! On the other hand, the lack of uniformity of color gives effect to the beautiful pink hair.

Hot pink or pastel pink?


  • Well closed tone;
  • It fades a lot, to the point of ending up with a light pink, if continuous touch-ups of the tone are not carried out;
  • It does not require intense bleaching, hair tones of 7 or 8 can already achieve this pink;
  • They require a greater amount of color washes for maintenance


  • It fades to the point of pale salmon,
  • however touch-up is easy as the color wash can be diluted and used as a mask in our weekly treatment routine ;
  • It requires intense color changes, only below tone 10 can a pastel pink be obtained;
  • Color neutralizers or anti-yellowing agents need to be applied after bleaching;
  • It requires a smaller amount of color tone in maintenance, as it must be mixed with a little cream.

It is always best to test on a strand. Use a mixture of well-diluted bleach, 25g of powder to 150ml of color perfector with a 25 minute waiting time.


We apply an anti residue shampoo that greatly helps to eliminate red aniline.

Anti yellow shampoo or mask

Apply the mask to get rid of any type of yellow or orange reflections that remain.


Dilute the ammonia-free deep color stain according to the image. Apply with a brush to hair that is still damp from root to tip.
