Colour-Changing Hair Dye Is Here

Ever gotten sick of your hair colour but didn’t have the willpower to change it, for fear of spending another eight hours at a hairdressers and completely destroying your locks in the process?

Well, we have some news that is going to completely change your life.

Data visualization scientist Lauren Bowker, has invented a hair dye that changes colour based on the temperature of its surrounding environment.

In order words, it’s pure magic. 

Named ‘FIRE’, the project will launch at London Fashion Week as part of Lauren’s collaboration with her brand THEUNSEEN and Storm Models.

In an interview with Dazed, Lauren explained exactly how the paranormal invention works.

“When heat hits the pigment, or if the cool hits the pigment, it changes the bonds of the chemistry to give you a different color, so it’s like a chemical reaction,” she said.

Lauren also explained that she has been working with dyes "that change their structure, which gives you a light refraction instead, so it’s more like a prism color change ... If you have red hair and you’re in the wind it might go blue. So what we did was look at data patterns of weathers and the environment in different countries and tailor the color changes to correlate with those." 

The future is here, people.
