Happy Sunday and welcome to another blog post! Recently one of my favorite youtubers Leighannsays dyed her hair rose gold and after watching her video I got inspired! I’ve always wanted to dye my hair pink but was always scared to because yes even though my job does allow unnatural hair color in our dress code, but with my position as a shift supervisor I was nervous to do it. But in her video, Leighann said that the dye is semi permanent and washed out in 3 washes so I thought why not? See what it would be like to have pink hair! So without further ado, let’s get into my experience with pink hair!
The Hair Dye
The hair dye that Leighann and I used was the Colorista Semi Permanent Hair Dye. I really like what Leighann did so just like in the video I used a mix of two colors, pink and soft pink. Leighann had two bottles of each hair dyes because she was covering her whole head and she was scared that she would run out, but since I was only coloring the blonde parts in my hair (which is the bottom tips of my hair) I only got one of each bottle. In the end I ended up only using a little more than half of the bottles so I had left-over hair dye to use in case I wanted to retouch it up (spoiler alert, I retouched it up). What made me want to use this hair dye (other than the fact that Leighann used it tehe) is the fact that it is semi- permanent. According to the box the color is supposed to last 4 to 8 washes and since I wash my hair about once a week I expected it to last a little bit. I bought my hair dye at Target, and it was about 10 dollars for each box so it wasn’t expensive at all.
(thats my sister with me :D)
When I opened the box I was surprised to see that the hair dye was in a squeeze bottle. Usually hair dyes come in three separate parts where you have to add one part to another and have this weird small tip that took a bit to get any product out, but this was very easy to use as well as time saving. Another thing I really liked was not only did it have a brush, but it came with a million of gloves! In a hair dye pack you only get one pair of gloves which is great, but really inconvenient when you accidently rip a glove or you have to take it off for some reason. So having multiple gloves was really nice, especially since I retouched up the pink later on.
My bottom tips were pretty blonde so the finishing color was very pink which I liked (first photo). The bright pink lasted until I washed my hair for the first time which then it turned from an in your face pink to a more rose gold kind of pink that I really liked. Even though I really liked the rose gold color that the pink faded into, It already started to fade fast after one wash and like I said earlier, I still had left-over dye, so I retouched it up and was back to the bright pink. Since I was dying the pink on top of an already pink tinted hair it was a more bright pink and after one wash it turned into a more beautiful rose gold color so I do recommend that if you have left-over product, I would retouch it up.
I have washed my hair three times since I retouched the color (third photo) and I feel that it is really faded. I can see a lot more blonde in my hair coming up again and the color isn’t as bright or as pretty as it used to be. It is also patchy as well which could easily be my fault more than the product’s from applying it to my hair. I feel like in the next two products my hair will be back to being blonde and the pink will be completely gone.
Finishing Thoughts and Would I recommend?
All together I would say that I have had a good experience with this hair experiment. In the long run I want to have my hair to be more blonde, I feel more confident with my hair being blonde, but in order to do what I want to do with my hair I would have to go to a professional which I can’t afford right now. So until then I thought I would have some fun with it while I can! The only bad thing I would say about it, is that it only lasts for about 4 to 6 washes instead of the 4-8 washes the box said. But hey, that could just be that with my hair, it could last longer for someone else’s hair! I really enjoyed having pink hair, it gave me a confidence like the blonde does, but a different kind of confidence. With all that being said, would I recommend L’Oreal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Dye to friends or family? I would! I love how it gave me a taste of having colored hair like I’ve always wanted and the color is very bright and vibrant, and even pretty when it’s faded too!
There are other colors in the line, and I would like to try other colors, but I also have come attached to the pink color… so I don’t know what to do? What do you guys think? Would you like to see me use the same hair dye brand but a different color, or try a different brand of pink? I would love to try LimeCrime’s Unicorn Hair Dye one day! Let me know in the comments below!
