Hair Update: A Moment of Madness!

Hello my love and how very nice it is to see you again...









So as the title may suggest I had a moment of madness the other day whilst walking through the aisles of my local Tesco. You will all know of my love for a bargain by now so imagine my delight (and sheer need) when finding the Live Colour XXL, Shocking Pink dye in the clearance section for £1.75! I instantly thought to myself, well I obviously need this to go in my (ever growing) dye selection. I didn't however plan to do what I actually did with it next. You see I WAS planning on using yet another Bleach London dye in the shade Parma Violets on my blonde ends however with the green still showing through from their Washed up Mermaid dye I knew it would probably go a disgusting shade of non discript brown. Therefore my need to dye and dye now growing ever stronger the little clogs in my brain had been a ticking trying to think of ways to wash it all out in preparation for the purple. I saw lemon, Pantene, strippers such as Bleach London's washing out liquid however I am an extremely impatient person and even the thought of waiting was making me anxious!

Anyhow to cut a long (very babbly) story short I was like screw it I will just do a strand test with the pink on the greenest part of my hair. Which I did, and which turned surprisingly pink, OK so a tad purpley pink due to the green but still mostly pink and rather nice. So of course being me the next thing I did was bung in aload of white conditioner and half the tube of pink and then walloped the lot on my darkest sections, aka my roots and the very top of my hair, as well as the darker blonde front sections. I left this for around 30 minutes before dumping a load more conditioner into my bowl and adding half or the remaining product (that's a quarter of the overall tube...look at me, I'm a mathematical genius). I then added this to the remainder of my hair leaving for a further 15 minutes before washing off and conditioning with one of the handy conditioners that come in the pack.

And this my dear friends was the result! Now it is actually much darker then on these pictures in natural lighting however I've been at work today so couldn't snap any pictures until later on. As you can see from the last two pictures it has a sort of reverse ombre effect from my original ombre style. The top darker section has been tinted and streaked pink with the very bottom 'bleached'  sections absorbing the most colour. Where there was green the hair has gone slightly purple but I like the multi-faceted effect it gives.

Over all I LOVE it especially for a last minute wack it on job, I don't actually think I did too bad! What do you guys think? Do you like my new pink locks?

  1. Oh, this is like my hair! But yours is nicer, you have a way better hair cut than me. I wish I knew about this, I would have included a photo of you on my most recent post about pink hair.
