Yes, glow-in-the-dark hair is real and it’s actually easy to achieve.
Rainbow hair takes you one move closer to becoming a unicorn. Now you can step it up with hair colour that glows under black light!
Ok, so technically it’s not glow-in-the-dark hair, it’s glow under black light hair but it’s still very cool. Your rainbow hair transforms to vibrant neon under UV lights. Depending on the exact colour, it may be bright under normal lights but it will glow like a neon under ‘black lights’ or UV lights.

How to get the look: Glow-in-the-dark hair dye formulas
Wondering how to get the look? Instagrammer @Rainbowmegz shares her colour formula.
She used three different brands – Punky Colour, Special Effects and Manic Panic. The exact dyes are as follows:
- Punky Colour: Apple Green, Turquoise (it does kind of glows, but not advertised as glowing) Atlantic Blue, and Plum.
- Special Effects: Atomic Pink (glows), Napalm orange (glows), Deep purple.
- Manic Panic: Electric Banana (glows), Electric Lizard (glows), and Electric Lava (mixed with a bit if Punky Colour Poppy Red in hopes I would create a black light reactive red, and it did work)
Where to find UV hair dye?
The brands recommended above are Manic Panic, Punky Colour and Special Effects. Stargazer also do UV sensitive dyes. You can find them all here on Amazon.
