Rainbow hair is definitely a trend that won't be going away any time soon. If you've already tried rocking colorful locks, then you know that it requires some serious maintenance to keep your hair color in tip-top shape. Routine touch-ups with your stylist and gingerly washing your hair as infrequently as possible to keep it vibrant become your reality. And let's face it, who has the time or money for that?
There are, however, some products that simplify the process and allow you to completely DIY or maintain your rainbow hair from the comfort of your own bathroom. From easy semi-permanent hair color you can apply yourself to treatments that help maintain and refresh color to products that allow you to try rainbow hair for only one day, these products will keep your 'do looking fresh and bright — sans time, commitment or excess dough.
If you're looking for long-lasting, vivid color that is vegan/cruelty-free and leaves strands in better condition, Arctic Fox Hair Color is just the ticket. You'll find a wide array of shades (including UV light reactive) that leave hair silky and fruit-scented. Grab some gloves and apply to light colored or pre-lightened hair.
Lime Crime makes it super easy to get fantasy colors IRL. The fresh-scented, conditioning formula is vegan and gives you tons of color choices (like the brand's gorgeous makeup collection). With a little imagination, some gloves and Vaseline, you too can create unicorn hair at home.
Let's face it, Manic Panic is the OG of rainbow hair. People have turned to the brand for nearly 40 years to maintain their colorful strands, including newbies. Always vegan and cruelty-free, the brand's Amplified line is designed to last even longer than the original formula.
If you already have light hair or have recently bleached it and want to add a little pizazz, try the Ion Color Brilliance Gemstones line for some truly beautiful, unique colors. Free from ammonia and peroxide, apply from the tube to your hair (using gloves of course) and be amazed at the beautiful gemstone-inspired hues.
