Some time last year, I ordered two 88ml jars of La Riche Directions hair dye in Pastel Pink and attempted to get pink tips. Unfortunately, it was my first (well, second) time bleaching my hair so I didn’t get a pale enough base for the light pink to show through.
It’s been a while and I’ve since learned how to get my hair a pale blonde. I still had a jar left and I didn’t want to put it to waste so I thought I’d go pastel pink after Halloween.
I wish I hadn’t.
I decided to forgo lightening my hair prior to dyeing it since it was still light enough and I didn’t want to subject it to another round of peroxide. I had just bleached my roots and lightened the rest two weeks ago because it was getting a bit brassy.
I left the dye on overnight (it’s vegetable dye/peroxide-free so it’s safe to leave on for hours) and was not amused to see how it turned out after my hair dried.
It looks DIRTY. It’s only been a day and I already miss my blonde hair. I want it back. I guess it’s good that semi-permanent dyes come off easily, depending on how frequent you shampoo your hair.
