Cream Pink Highlight Hair Color Products

Pink highlights can be a fun way to express yourself. However, it's important to choose a hair color based on a few different factors. The more you know about the hair color, the easier it will be to get the desired highlights for your hairstyle.

How is color cream applied?

If you can choose to color your hair at home, the color may come in a tube that is applied to your hair, although in some instances, you may have to mix a few chemicals together to produce the cream. When you want pink streaks, you may be able to apply them by hand. Otherwise, you can wear a special cap that has holes in it. A hook is then used to pull small segments of hair through the cap. You then apply the cream to the top of the cap. Once the color is on the hair, you allow it to sit for a specific amount of time. When the time is up, you rinse out the color. You are then left with pink highlights.

How long do the highlights last?

You have to decide how long you want to have pink highlights. Some products are designed to wash out quickly while others will stay in considerably longer. Options include:

  • Temporary: The pink color stays in for several hair washes.
  • Permanent: The pink color stays in for as long as it takes for your hair to grow out.
Will pink highlights be visible on all hair colors?

Pink is more visible on hair of a blonde color than it is on brown or black hair. If you have darker hair, you might have to first bleach your hair. You will want to follow the directions on the box of color to ensure that you get the desired results. If you have darker hair, look for products that are designed to be applied to darker hair.

What is included with the hair color?

When you buy color, there may be several products included depending on the brand. However, there are a few common components that are included to help you achieve pink highlights:

  • Color
  • Dye cap
  • Hook
  • Conditioning treatment
What is ombre color?

Ombre is a French word that means shaded, and it allows you to gradually blend hues of pink from light to dark in either direction. The benefit of using an ombre color is that you would be able to have multiple shades at once and start or end with your natural hair color.
