"Orange is the New Black": The Weirdest Place You'll Find Rad DIY Beauty Tips
You won't believe these MacGyver-meets-Maybelline beauty tricks from behind bars
But inmates don't always have the funds to make it to the prison beauty salon for a new cut. The next logical option? Switching up hair color. DeAngelis says the old-fashioned "Sun-In" technique is popular: streaking hair with lemon juice and soaking up the sun for highlights or concentrating the juice on the ends for a more ambitious ombre look. For all-over color, blondes darken their shade with black tea, and brunettes can enrich their color's tone with the same strong brew.
For temporary color, DeAngelis says prisoners use cherry juice, Kool-Aid -- even erasers. "Any kind of waxy product that you can melt down will stain," she notes. In this case, that stain will be of the pink variety and won't leave your hair feeling the smoothest, but it is a great alternative for women with darker hair.
