1. Hair Bleaching
Most of the females who want to get rainbow hair are perhaps not aware of the fact that in order to get rainbow hairstyles of their choice, they will have to get their hair bleached first. Bleach is the go-to product before you apply the color – whether for dyed rainbow tips, just streaks or full color over the complete head. If you skip the bleach, chances are the colour will wash out and won’t stick on the hair.
Once you are through with the bleaching process, wash, condition, and blow-dry your hair before you go for any sort of rainbow hair color.
