p a s t e l ♡ c o m e b a c k


Title is - obviously - referring to my new hair color!  
Okay, to be fair, I have had it for about a month now... but I have not yet posted it here, have I? So why not. Let us say "new" and move along. 

Was not even blonde for a month, I think. I am so very indecisive it is almost amusing. 
Before and after, anyway.


 


For this, I used Directions ("Neon Blue"), which is my go-to hair dye brand. I get my Directions from Kawaii Shop or Shock here in Stockholm, but you can find it ridiculously easily on eBay. Literally, it takes two minutes.

Neon Blue is quite a dark shade of blue with purple pigments, so I mixed it with conditioner to brighten it a bit. Pastel things up a notch, so to speak! I used about one cup of regular conditioner, I think I have some Elvital repair type thing, with a little less than a teaspoon of hair dye, give or take a few drops.

This method is great, because you will certainly not have to run to the store or order new hair dye every other week, as I would have had to do if I had gone with a lighter shade of purple dye. So, it is highly recommended! However, I feel obligated to add that you cannot do this with permanent box dye, only with conditioner-based semi-permanent hair dye. Things will go horribly wrong if you try to mix permanent box dye with conditioner ("and you will get cancer and die").


Now that I have washed it a few times, it has turned a little blue though, to say the least. But I think it still looks rather good, so I will wait a while before buying some pink conditioner to throw in the mix and going purple again.

Seems like no matter what I try, I always end up going back to blue. 



Seems like no matter what I try, sooner or later I always go back to blue. 
Oh, well. 

Over and out, petals! ♡

    1. Thank you dearie ♡ I mix conditioner with dye every two times I wash my hair, that makes it last longer! I only properly re-dye it every other month.

  4. You know, I always wonder if any conditioner works with that. I mean most cheap conditioners are basically made of the same stuff but some ingredients vary. Have you ever encountered a conditioner that didn't give as good results with this method as other conditioners?
