New hair! Fireland!
Jeepers creepers what did I do!
Well, since it was about 2 am in the morning when I got fed up with my hair all of a sudden yesterday, and there weren’t any hairdressers available:
I made two ponytails in my hair, took the scissors and cut them.
Then I got myself some good ol’ bleach and coated my hair:
However i’ve seen hair that was still green being covered by red just perfectly, so I took a chance and dove right in with the Naturtint dye!
Tell me that right shade doesn’t look like a gorgeous, lucious blue toned dark red.
Well it wasn’t.
Well that was misleading..
I LURVE redheads, they’re stunning!
However on myself.. Meh. I can’t really get into it..
As for the dye itself, my unbiased review:
Like decaying bell peppers.
That smell stays with you until your first good wash.
Naturtint I-6.66 Colorant Ingredients: Peg-2 Oleamine. Aqua Purificata (Purified Water). Cocamide Dea. Alcohol Denat (Alcohol). Propylene Glycol. Oleic Acid. Ethanolamine. 4-Hydroxypropylamino-3-Nitrophenol. 4-Amino-2-Hydroxytoluene. Sodium Sulfite. Tetrasodium Edta. hydrolysed Vegetable Protein (Triticum Vulgare, Soy, Corn, Avena Sativa). Sodium Erythorbate. P-Aminophenol. P-Phenylenediamine. 4-Chlororesorcinol.
Very runny, but it grabs onto the hair nicely.
On virgin or rigid hair you’d leave this on for about 40 minutes, on colored hair 20-30, that’s a whole lot less than the vegetable dyes I generally use from Manic Panic or Stargazer.
During this time it rushed into my hair like a flash!
It spread throughout the hair nicely, and that way had colored every strand of hair evenly by the time I was ready for my rinse.
Even the green!
Nope, no staining!
My head is clear of any pigments.
So far no transfer to my white scarf either!
Very, my hair feels light and smooth like feathers!
3 for now, i’ll be updating it as soon as I find out what the staying power is like!
Deducted one star for misleading packaging, how horrific!
And the smell is just awful, blergh.
