Hair dye has been one of the most often used beauty products for centuries. Originally derived from soil and plant matter, modern hair dying is a chemical process that can tint your hair any shade imaginable. Strawberry blonde is a shade that incorporates both the light tones of blonde hair with intense shades of red, making it a popular shade for many women.

  1. 1

    Comb through your hair to straighten it and remove any tangles. Hair dye must evenly coat each strand to produce even colouring, and any knots will prevent even penetration.

  2. 2

    Open the hair dye package and mix the colour with the activator according to the package directions. Shake the mixture well and allow it to sit for at least five minutes to fully blend before applying it to your hair.

  3. 3

    Wrap an old towel around your shoulders to keep the dye from staining your clothes. Separate your hair into two sections, securing the top portion up on your head with a clip. Separating your hair makes it easier to get an even coat of dye all over your head without missing any strands.

  4. 4

    Apply the dye to the bottom portion of hair, rubbing it gently from the scalp to the ends of the strand for even application. Unclip your hair and coat the upper layer of hair, working slowly to prevent the dye from getting on your skin.

  5. 5

    Let the dye sit on your hair for 30 minutes, then wipe the dye from a small section of hair to see how dark the colour is. Strawberry blonde dye will tint your hair a light red colour, so checking it often will prevent you from getting your hair too dark. If the shade is not dark enough, check your hair in 10-minute increments until the right shade is achieved.

  6. 6

    Rinse the dye from your hair, scrubbing your scalp gently to remove all the dye. Apply the conditioner that came with the dye and allow it to sit for at least five minutes before rinsing thoroughly to moisturise your newly dyed strawberry blonde hair.

Tips and warnings

  • Quickly wipe any dye from your skin to keep it from staining. Chemical dyes can be very irritating to your skin and can leave red stains if not cleaned up as soon as possible.
  • Never leave dye on your hair longer than the directions suggest. If you leave the dye on too long, it can cause irreversible damage to your hair.
