Item ID

Hair dye is an appearance item, used to modify character looks by changing their hair and beard color.

Usage

Hair dye can be used to change the color of the character's hair by right-clicking the color dye the player wishes to change their hair to, and clicking the dye hair, or dye beard option in the context menu.

Each bottle of hair dye can be used twice before being consumed, allowing for both the hair and beard to be dyed with one bottle.
