What You Should Know Before Dyeing Your Beard White

Dyeing your beard all-white can drastically change your entire look and give you a new appearance. Transforming your beard hair from black to white can be fun and exciting, but it’s a complicated process.

To dye your beard white, you’ll first have to decide whether you want to color it temporarily or permanently. Also, if your beard hair is jet black, you might have to bleach it before beginning the process.

The thing is, bleaching the hair takes a few days to recover before you start dyeing. Moreover, a beard is coarse, but the skin tends to be sensitive. Hence, choosing the right product and following proper instructions is essential.

Choosing Between Temporary And Permanent Beard Dye

Whether it’s temporary or permanent beard dye, the process is similar either way. Also, it’s entirely safe, given that you’re using the right product. By saying this, it’s best to use products containing natural ingredients.

If your hair has started to turn grey and you want to match the color of your beard with your hair, permanent dye is the way to go because it’s always best to match the colors for an even look.

However, you can always use wax or spray beard dye if you want to dye it temporarily. Moreover, they’re much safer than box dyes, and you can use them anytime.

Now, if your beard hair is jet black, you’ll have to bleach it first because it can come off as greyish, so bleaching becomes necessary. But, if your beard is light enough, you can dye it without bleaching. 

Nevertheless, instructions can vary for temporary and permanent coloring. Hence, you can follow these steps for a smooth process.

How To Dye Beard Hair Temporarily

The process of temporary beard dye is relatively easy, and you can either use a spray or wax. But if you’re using a spray, ensure that you cover your nose, eyes, and mouth for safety.

Here’s how:

  • Wear an old t-shirt or wrap a towel around your shoulders because there’s a high chance of staining your cloth.
  • Generously rub petroleum jelly to your skin around the sides of your beard to prevent unwanted stains.
  • But before you start dyeing, carefully read all the instructions and follow them accordingly.
  • If you’re using a spray dye, it’s best to use the help of a partner to prevent any accidents, and it’ll also be much easier.

Now, hold the spray at least 10-15 inches away from your face and evenly spray it all over your beard.

  • If you’re using wax, apply using your fingers, or you can also use the applicator.
  • Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then wash it off.
  • And if it still needs more coloring, you can go for the second coating.

How To Dye Beard Hair Permanently

As mentioned, if you have darker hair, it’s best to bleach it first for better results.

Here’s how:

  • Wear the rubber gloves that come with the package. Then, mix the developer and bleach into a smooth paste by following the instructions.
  • Since bleach contains heavy chemicals, liberally apply petroleum jelly around your skin to protect it from any irritation.
  • To test, apply a single line to your beard, wait for a minimum time as given in the instructions, and rinse it. If there’s no irritation, apply it evenly on your beard.
  • But wait for an hour or so after bleaching because directly coloring your hair after bleach can be harmful.
  • To start dyeing your beard, you can follow the same process, i.e., applying petroleum jelly.
  • Mix the color as given in the instructions.
  • With the use of an applicator, apply the color on your beard.
  • Allow it to sit for some time and rinse it with cold water.
  • And finally, you can wash it off with a beard shampoo and apply beard oil.
