I Used To Have Lots Of It,

now alas it is almost all gone,

 hair, in my day brunettes became blonds and vice versa with a few blue rinses thrown in, nowadays there is a whole gambit of colours that ladies of fashion can chose, but this one I found intriguing, the dye/colour changes depending on the temperature and humidity, founder Lauren Bowker of the UK based company The Unseen has recently revealed a revolutionary hair dye that can change between two colours whenever the temperature around the user fluctuates, the new product is called FIRE, the company has patented colour-changing technology that has allowed the company to create a variety of bespoke inks and coatings, these can in turn be used to create clothes and accessories that change colour depending on certain factors, like temperature and humidity,

but their latest creation, FIRE – a specially formulated hair dye that causes the hair to change colour whenever the temperature fluctuates has been drawing the most attention, Lauren Bowker says that she came up with the idea for FIRE while watching a scene from the 90’s teen movie “The Craft”, more specifically a scene where Robin Tunney’s character goes from brunette to platinum blond by simply combing her fingers through her hair. “It was in that moment that the penny kind of dropped,” Lauren said. “I was like, ‘We could do that.'” and she did.

here are some examples, one of them changes from black to crimson with a hint of orange whenever the user blushes or when their body temperature rises, another goes from white blond to an ice-y blue whenever you go outside and the temperature is under 60 degrees Fahrenheit, other dyes cause the hair to change colour from silver grey to pastel pink, or from red to green to blue, depending on various temperature changes, The Unseen is planing to eventually partner with hair-care companies to bring their innovative colour-changing hair dyes to the market, but for the time being, Lauren Bowker hopes that by showcasing the creative results of science, they can convince young people to work in this field, “Modern witchcraft and modern alchemy is possible,” she told FastCo Design, “All the sort of sci-fi visions from 15 years ago”—or 20, in the case of The Craft—”can now be true.” would I try it? no way, coloured hair, not really me, not enough hair in any case, but what will fashion designers think of next?
