Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Dye Your Hair With Crepe Paper

What we are going to need is...

1) CREPE PAPPER------ yes the most important part of the process....

2) Gloves

3) Really important: Crepe paper only works if the hair is blonde!!!! iI know... it sucks.. but since Im not blond I had to bleach it..

** By bleaching it, it will get harmed, so you must think twice before doing it**

Note: I used an old hair bang I had, it has a faded pink color... but it worked anyways

Step 2: Dye Your Hair With Crepe Paper

First you need to choose the colour of the paper u want..... I chose blue once and it turned out to be a little bit lighter at the end..
second.... choose the amount of hair you want, YOU CANT HAVE YOUR HAIR WET.... IT HAS TO BE DRY
third put on your gloves.... grabb the paper, make a little ball with it, and let the water run... you will see that when the paper gets wet it will start losing the colour..

I didnt notice any difference between hot and cold water...

Step 3: Dye Your Hair With Crepe Paper

After making sure that the paper is loosing the color start pressing it against you hair... if u see that the paper is getting super small grabb another piece.... and continue.... once you had done the amount of hair you wanted, dry it and ready.. check out the results....

* It wont last much, maybe a couple of days and it will start fading away, ONCE AGAIN ITS REALLY IMPORTANT TO BLEACH IT in case you are not blonde!!!

* This technique can leave some color spots around the place youve been working, so make sure to clean everything!

BTW... Crepe paper is the only one that works because under the water lose the colour, another papers dont do that

    couple of days. not much. It all depends on how often you wash your hair and the color you use. Blue and red stays longer. Still less than a semi permanent hair dye

    Yes it will. But the color wont be strong enough. It will be like a faded black. Maybe dark grey.

    This really works ! Also on brown dark hair because yeah my hair is brown.But i it will be just not that brightly like on blonde. P.S thanks for sharing !
