It's colored blue, purple and pink... Looked like this: [link] but now a much more faded, ugly version of that. I saw on your profile that you are expecting - congrats! Are you waiting until (s)he is born until you go back to dying?
So pretty!!! Heck yes, I'm addicted to dying my hair, my hairs been a natural color for 3 years now (I got my fix from dying it black, but still its not the same) Thank you very much! Yeah, I wasn't sure it was okay to dye hair while pregnant, so I decided to play it safe and just wait. She's going to have an interesting mum. haha
What kind of hair dye do you use? How long does it last for you?
Oh yes, it is a very addicting hobby! You're very welcome - and interesting is good in my opinion! From what I've read, most vegetable dyes (special effects, manic panic, punky color, etc) are fine to use while pregnant since they are all natural, it's just the bleaching that should be avoided.
Depending on how long I want the colors to last, I use Manic Panic or RAW/n'Rage. Manic Panic usually stays vibrant for about 2-3 weeks (with washing once every three days under cold water), and RAW/n'Rage will stay for months without having to do any special washing. I really prefer Manic Panic just because I like to constantly change my hair colors, so the fact that it fades out at the end of a month works for me!
aww man. I wish I knew that! but my hair is pretty dark so idk if it would show up. I love punky color!! That's what my cabinet is filled with haha next time I get pregnant, I'll make sure my hair is pre-bleached haha
I don't remember if I've ever used Manic Panic before, I might have to try that out! and I've never heard of RAW/n'Rage. I usually stick to pink hair when I'm dying it alone, and I'd LOVE if it lasted longer than a month Thank you! I'll have to try and find that
hehe! Good idea! I've never used punky color! How long does it usually last for you? I've only ever seen RAW for sale in Hot Topic... 'n Rage I've seen in Hot Topic as well and also Sally's. I tried their bubble gum pink color, but I don't think my hair was bleached light enough for it to show up. I'm not sure if they have any other pinks aside from that though...
Cool! I'm not sure I've ever been one solid color... I'm trying to work my way to it right now though because of the way the rainbow has faded.
I colored it all at once... it did take 6 hours to do though. I made yellow the largest section because I expected the red and blue to run into it a bit, and since I had planned for that, it went just as expected. I always wash my hair upside down under as cold of water as I can stand when it's colored, too. The cold water seals up the hair cuticles, which prevents fading and bleeding.
Thank you Hooray for rainbow hair! My hair bleaches out to almost white at the roots, so I was able to get the red and yellow really vibrant. The ends of my hair didn't really go that light, but using the darker colors at the bottom, you don't notice.
Thank you! Every time I've asked a professional about doing crazy hair they decline because of time consumption/length of my hair and damage it would cause from bleaching... so I gave up and just do it myself.
