Saint Patrick’s Day is all about going green. Not in an environmentally-friendly way, but rather in terms of donning yourself head to toe in every shade of the color. If you don’t own anything green and don’t want to get pinched, we have just the thing for you. When in doubt, turn to some temporary hair dye. Below, we rounded up the best temporary green hair dyes to use this Saint Patrick’s Day. Or, just to see how you’d like with shamrock strands.
Splat 1-Wash Temporary Hair Color in Eclectic Green: $8.99
Splat always comes through when it comes to temporary hair color. We are big fans of their 1-Wash hair dyes because they look more permanent than a chalk or spray. But, they only last a day, and therein lies the beauty of this temporary green hair dye. Simply use some shampoo and warm water to rinse it out and you’re good to go.
Good Dye Young Poser Paste Temporary Hair Makeup in Kowabunga Green: $18
This hair makeup is somewhat like a putty for your strands. But don’t worry, it won’t leave them feeling sticky or tacky. The temporary hair color dries to a somewhat gel-like consistency. We love the freedom it offers and how easy it is to wash out. You can slather it on one strand, the ends, or all over.
Got 2b Playful Temporary Hair Chalk in Emerald Green: $3.99
For those who want a temporary green hair dye that is as non-permanent as it gets, we recommend this hair chalk from Got 2b. Not only is it incredibly inexpensive, you don’t have to worry about it potentially lasting longer than a day. We do want to stress that hair chalk does sometimes rub out pretty quickly, so just be warned.
L’Oréal Colorista 1-Day Spray in Mint: $4.97
When you’re in a rush to get out the door, this spray will come in handy. Simply spritz it wherever you want the green color to shine through and enjoy your Saint Patrick’s Day activities without getting pinched. While other temporary hair colors fade throughout the day, this one appears more visible as it dries.
L’Oréal Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Hair Color in Green: $7.99
Those with darker strands can sometimes have a hard time finding a temporary hue that will show up in their locks. That’s why we love this L’Oréal Colorista Hair Makeup, as it was specifically formulated for those with brunette or black hair. The one-day color will pop in your tresses and is also transfer resistant.
Manic Panic Dye Hard Styling Gel in Electric Lizard: $9.49
As far as styling your hair for Saint Patrick’s Day goes, this styling gel is your best bet. Not only is it able to help you achieve sky-high spikes or slicked-back buns, it also leaves behind a neon green hue. And, it even glows under black light. You’ll be the talk of the St. Paddy’s Day parade with this gel in your strands.
Jerome Russell Bwild Temporary Hair Color Spray in Green: $5.99
Whether you spray it all over or on one strand, this temporary green hair color deposits a vibrant color unlike any other. You can even bring it with you to touch up your color or let others use it. Sharing is caring, after all.
