Fluorescent and neon orange hair dyes require you to bleach your hair thoroughly before applying, otherwise your natural hair colour will stop the orange from being so bright. Semi-permanent neon orange hair is a very bold look that will really turn heads as you walk past… if you’re not ready for that level of commitment yet, try using neon orange for highlights or temporary hair stripes for your next night out.
There are many different shades of orange hair dye, from pale pastel oranges to fiery oranges that verge on red and pink. Orange is a versatile colour that you don’t need to be too careful with.

Orange Hair Dye: Semi-Permanent Application Tips
To get a full, bright colour that lasts as long as possible, make sure you follow these simple tips:
- Hair Maintenance: before you dye your hair, use keratin and protein rich hair products in the days or weeks leading up to the day you dye your hair. You need to make sure your hair is strong and in good condition before applying any bleach or dye, whether it’s semi-permanent or temporary orange hair dye.
- Test Patches: test the bleach and hair dye orange colour on your arm 48 hours before you dye your head. Watch carefully to ensure you aren’t allergic and like the colour. If you have any side-effects from the dye, head to your nearest hospital for medical attention.
- Applying Bleach: you should bleach your hair before applying the dye. Even on blonde hair, you can ruin your bright orange hair colour by having your natural hair colour fade through.
- Following Instructions: read through the dye instructions on the box and follow them to the letter. If you leave the neon orange hair dye on for longer or shorter than they recommend, you may end up with a different shade than expected.
- Hair After-Care: you need to do some after care once you’ve applied the hair dye. Orange colours can fade quickly so keep using your keratin and protein-rich products to make your hair strong. Depending on the brand, you can keep your hair looking rich and bright for 6 - 8 weeks.
Follow those tips and you’ll have beautiful orange hair just like the celebs.
