In brief: Nerve compression

You most likely compress/ squeeze a nerve( at the neck level c8, or at the elbow : ulnar nerve) while keep your arm up dying your hair. You might have inflammation , arthritis, or muscle spasm at these levels.
You should see a neurologist to have emg/ncs to clarify the level.

In brief: Nerve problem elbow

When you are dying your hair your elbows are completely bent.
This puts pressure on the ulnar nerve, which gives numbness and tingling in your little finger. You should see a physician.
