You all know by now I’m sure that I dip dyed my hair at home myself and if you didn’t well you can check out the results above! I’m not one to blow my own trumpet usually but I did a deadly job on this, even if I do say so myself! Rather than do a tutorial (there is a plethora of them online already) I just said I would give you a quick review and some thoughts on the brand of dye I used. If you really really want to see a tutorial just let me know in the comments.
So I used shade #42 Pinkissimo and #43 Violette both from Crazy Color; before I go any further and forget you can check out their website here. I bought my two bottles (I paid about 7 euros each) in a local hairdressing supply shop. Crazy Color is the most popular brand of fun coloured hair dye, so you should be able to pick it up from most decent salon suppliers.
It’s recommended that your hair is either blonde or bleached to achieve the best results; mine is both so I had no problems there. I applied the dye to my hair and left it for an hour to develop. The recommended time is 30 minutes for it to set, but I left it longer to achieve a deep colour. My hair is quite porous but these dyes are only semi permanent and I knew they would fade fast. The consistency of the dye is thick but it spreads nicely. I would advise using either a comb or gloved hands to spread the dye into the hair. Also ensure to wear old clothes as this stuff does stain. Other than that it performed as I would expect and didn’t stink me out of house and home like most hair dyes.
I then rinsed the dye and blow dried as normal. See the results above for yourself. The initial colours were quite dark, but as I washed my hair in the following weeks both colours faded to fab pastel shades of which I am a huge fan; so much so that I am really considering dying my whole head lilac. I love the granny chic colour that Kelly Osbourne has been sporting of late.
Whaddya think ladies? Shall I go the whole hog? Have you used Crazy Colors before? Let us know in the comments
