Having colorful hair is not just a trend. Our hair can be used as an accessory to complement a stylish look. It can also speak on our personality and identity.
Did you know that having colorful hair isn’t a new thing? Even though, now, this trend has been growing and, with it, technology and new products have been helping people to rock out their bright, healthy, and incredible colors/hairstyles.
Colorful Hair: How Did It All Start?
The colorful hair trend is not the newest thing on the market, at all. In fact, history says that ancient Egyptians are the first known people to dye their hair. They used to do it by applying henna to cover the gray hair locks.
Some years later, in Ancient Greece and Rome, their people used to dye their hair using different plant extracts. We could see that this was all done using natural products and, of course, creativity. Furthermore, we could see the creation of permanent hair color dyes, which can also be attributed to Ancient Rome. But it took a few hundred years for the Romans to start working with other color options, beyond black.
In the Roman Empire, prostitutes used to have blonde hair. For that, many wore wigs, but some used a plant-based mixture to lighten their natural hair color. Camomile was one of the used plants. Back then, other civilizations also used hair color for battles to frighten the enemy.
The Hair Color Now: Beautiful Rainbows All-Around
Nowadays, we have more options that also last longer. We have people using their beautiful natural-looking colors, some do soft lights, and others like to walk around with vibrant rainbow tresses in their heads.
Because of all these possibilities, as stated by the stylish SuperDope Q, “hair can be the accessory that makes any outfit over the top”. With that in mind, the artist, along with BrainTrust, brand development, and digital marketing consultancy, and Cre8or Global, a disruptive blended digital technology and manufacturing platform in the beauty, health, wellness space, they created and formulated Hair Dope.
