Whether you know me via this blog or you know me in real life, you'll know that I am quite often moaning about my hair. To drag me out of my rut around six months ago, I got some chunky, dark blonde highlights put through it underneath and I loved how much it lifted my hair and made it look a bit more interesting.
But I was still a bit bored, and with my highlights crying out for a pop of colour to be added to them, I figured that if you can't experiment with green hair dye when you're just two months shy of your 26th birthday, then when the hell can you?
So I did. After hearing mixed (and largely negative, I have to say) reviews of Bleach London, I decided to pick up a bottle of the Crazy Colour hair dye in Pine Green from this seller on eBay and armed with this, a pair of gloves and an old towel, I was good to go!
I started off washing my hair with just shampoo (apparently dye doesn't take well to conditioned hair). Only wanting to colour the parts of my hair that were highlighted, I clipped the top half up, squirted some dye into my gloved hands, and quite literally slapped it onto the bottom half my hair. I started off trying to evenly distribute it with a comb, but then I figured the dye was only really going to take to the parts of my hair that had bleach on, so I just applied it liberally all over the highlights and ends.
I left it for about half an hour/40 minutes and then got in the shower. I washed it as usual, but I used the Herbal Essences Colour Ignite range to keep my green vibrant, and voila!
I only have a couple of crap iPhone/Instagram pictures (do I ever have anything else - Faye must despair of me!), but you get the idea!
So what do you think? Would you give green hair a go? Someone at work said I looked like "a cool mermaid". Don't know about you guys, but I'll certainly take that!
ps. Keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway coming soon! :) so excited to share it with you all!
