Color-changing hair dye exists, and we’re definitely not okay
Let's face it: We all wish we could change our hair color all the time. However, we also don't want to permanently damage our beautiful locks.
It's a problem that Lauren Bowker has solved. She's a data visualization expert who integrates science with fashion, and her newest creation is hair dye that changes color.
The hair dye changes color with temperature.
“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,” Bowker says to Dazed.
According to Dazed, the hair dye, aptly titled FIRE, is making its debut at London Fashion Week through a collaboration with Storm Models.
Bowker is the mastermind behind The Unseen. Her previous creations include a Swarovski headpiece full of gems that respond to brain activity by changing color and a jacket that reacts to air pollution.
The Unseen's goal, according to its website, is to "change the way the world uses color" by "giving data a voice to improve lives."
Apparently, this genius invention came from simply messing around in lab.
