Hair can be dyed using food coloring as an inexpensive and fun way to add new looks and highlights. Food coloring is non-abrasive, so it does not damage the hair.
To dye the hair with food coloring, the necessary items are an empty shampoo bottle, shampoo, liquid food coloring, plastic gloves, water, shower cap and a towel. The food coloring and shampoo are mixed depending on the amount of hair to be dyed. The mixture is applied thoroughly to the hair and then the hair is covered with the shower cap. This should be left for 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the original color of the hair. The hair is washed to remove the mixture and dried with a towel.
