7 Things You Need To Know Before Dyeing Your Body Hair

As more teens and young women are starting to grow their hair out–their body hair, that is–it’s only natural that they’ve also decided to get super creative with their venture into F-beauty-standards territory. For example, some of the same gals who are growing out their armpit hair are also dyeing their armpit hair. Hey, if you’re going to make a statement, there’s no harm in glaming it up. If nobody has any objections to dying the head on their head pastel pink, why should anyone knock somebody for dyeing their armpit hair turquoise?

If you’re interested in dyeing your body hair–whether it’s your pits or your pubes–here are seven things you need to know in advance.


Be Practical

Look, it makes a lot more sense to dye your pubic hair or your armpits than to dye your leg hair or arm hair. for the best results, dye hair that is coarse, not thin.

The Hairrier, The Better

Might sound obvious, but yeah, dying some stubble isn't going to be all that exciting. Grow your hair out so that you can actually enjoy the results! Yeah, it might take a while, but it'll be worth it. Plus, less reapplying of the dye!

It Might Be Familiar Territory

Dyeing your body hair is a lot like dying the hair on your head...which is great if you're familiar with dying your hair, but can be daunting if you're not. If you have dark hair, you're going to have to do a bit of bleaching first to lift the darkness, then apply color. It's a process, but worth it.

Get The Right Products

If you're going to dye your pubes, you have to be extra careful! Your bits are very sensitive to harsh chemicals like bleach. But if you really want to dye your pubes, there's special dye that you can use from Betty Beauty, which is just for your pubes. Other precautions: Consider trimming your pubic hair to the shape and style you want after dyeing as opposed to before. Otherwise, it might sting down there.

It's Going To Get Messy

Not just in the shower or wherever you do your dyeing, I mean on your skin, too. In fact, you might end up with more dye on your skin than on your actual hair. Just be prepared for that, especially since the dye might transfer onto your clothes.

Be Aware After You Dye

Yup, post-dye care! Okay, this sucks, but after you dye your armpits that awesome bright pink...you're going to have to go without putting deodorant on for a couple of days. You don't want your pits to go into chemical overload! Just...make sure you do this dying thing on a day when you don't have a lot of events lined up.

Expect BS

Frankly, people are losers and can't even handle the idea that someone might get pleasure out of growing their body hair and coloring it. Seriously, people are adamant about how gross they think it is. Don't let their ignorance get to you!
