If you’re an ’80s or ’90s baby, you probably remember the hype around mood rings, which supposedly responded to your ~mood~ (or more likely, your body temperature).

What if hair colour that adjusts according to its elements was a thing? When it’s hot it lightens, when it’s cool the colour goes back to its dark base. Thanks to Pravana, that’s now possible.

The professional hair care brand, used by stylists worldwide, is releasing a heat-responsive hair colouring technique that adjusts according to the temperature of your environment. While it isn’t a permanent dye, Vivids Mood Color is a temporary overlay that adjusts its hue according to the temperature of your location.

“What makes it unique is that it’s the first-ever heat reactive colour on the market. It happens so fast, with so many different heat sources. Walking out into the sun, with the simple heat from the sun, makes the colour shift. Any gust of wind can change it again and reverse right back to its original colour,” the brand’s product development manager told Allure.

Admittedly, the product works better on light hair, changing from a cool violet to a light pink in response to an increase in temperature. Lime green can become yellow according to your surroundings. If you’re into bringing the current peachy trend to your strands, your hair will return to its natural colour in direct sunlight.

The best part about Pravana’s Vivids Mood Color? It causes absolutely no damage to your hair and won’t alter your current colour regardless of if it’s salon curated or completely natural.

“You don’t have to pre-lighten your hair. You can put on various levels, but the brighter the hair, the lighter the colour will look. It does lay on top of the hair. It’s temporary,” said Cruz.

In today’s social media society where impulse is on-trend and trends are ever changing, there couldn’t be a more Instagram-worthy product.

“You can change your colour day in, and day out. It’s not dye.”
