How To Dye Your Hair Pink
Bleaching your hair is a necessary process to achieve a vibrant pink result. When you use bleach your hair becomes more porous (and unfortunately it receives damage) and it soaks up the color better. If you try putting in pink hair dyes on black hair you will be largely unsuccessful. You can apply it on natural brown or blonde hair but the results will be duller and fade away quicker.
The good news is that you don’t have to bleach your hair to a platinum blonde (although the blonder/lighter the hair, the more vibrant the pink will turn out). You can usually bring the hair down to an orange and just dye over that.
Here is a guide on how to bleach your hair.
