Cost $9.99 at Zellers
I am a huge fan of getting a good dye job from a hair stylist but it just isn't in my budget right now so I have been trying out some box dyes for the past few months. Like I say every time I dye my hair it will not compare fully to a good salon dye but it works for me.
Do you ever just get bored with your look and need some kind of change? I ALWAYS do but I am so lame I don't ever change it up too much. I used to when I was really young but now i'm to nervous for anything drastic! lol. But when I am itching for a new tattoo,piercing or change up my hair color a bit I just have to!
I like dark hair on me the best and I am a little sick of black so this pure purple looked great.
The usual that comes in an at home hair dye kit.
*Gel Creme Colorant
*Shine Enhancing Deep Conditioner
You might need to use:
*Vaseline around the hair line(It seriously helps so much).
*Rat tail comb to section hair
*Dye Brush to brush in the dye(I hate dying my hair with regular dye without this brush!)
*Any kind of clips to help section your hair
*Bad towels is a must! This stuff drips.
*Wear bad clothing!
It looks crazy purple! But I think its really pretty
Processing time is 30 minutes
Applying time took roughly 25 minutes (i'm a little slow with this kind of dye)
I'm not going to lie I didn't like the consistency of this dye. It was so runny! I am so used to using the foam dye that this was kind of dripping all over.
Look how purple it looks! =D
NOT THAT PURPLE!! what the heck! This was the best picture I could get in the sunlight to actually see some purple. It basically looks black in dull lighting =/ I assumed that I would be getting the color that was on the box. It even showed the same purple color when you have black hair but it didn't show up much in my hair.
My blogging friend Thisisalx was telling me that this was maybe a 2 tone type dye where you will only see the purple color in the light, so if it is then that would make sense!
Over all so far I do like this dye. My hair wasn't completely straw like after, I did use my K-Pak conditioner after. I don't find the box dye's conditioner all that moisturizing.
I honestly think the mousse/foam hair dyes are the way to go if you are a beginner. They are easy to apply on your own and less clean up. These kinds of dyes are okay if you are a newbie and have patients to be able to section your hair and brush the dye in. I would repurchase this dye as well as recommend it. There are more color selections with this line as well compared to the past mousse/foam dyes I have reviewed. You can read those HeRe and HeRe =)
I am always on a mission to find the best dye within my budget! What are some that you have tried and liked or didn't like?
