BLEACH London At Home Dye Kits: Rosé

Saturday, 19 October 2013

First off, apologies for the lack of posts. It's been difficult to find the time recently with starting final year of uni. Hopefully I'll get time to post a bit more often again :)

I always get bored of my hair so easily and I've been toying with the idea of dying it pink for a little while. I succumbed to the hype surrounding these dyes and headed to Boots on launch day to buy a bottle. The range features darker colours for a bolder look/use on darker hair and lighter, pastel colours for light blonde/bleached hair. The bottle says the colour should last between 2 and 10 washes.

I chose the shade 'Rosé' as it looked like the exact pink I was going for. 

The process of dying the hair was incredibly easy. I'm not an expert by any means, but all I did was section off my hair, starting with the bottom layer and worked the dye from root to tip. If you follow the instructions on the bottle then you'll find it very easy to do. I have quite long and thick hair and didn't find the process tedious at all as the consistency of the dye made it easy to work with. I left the dye to develop for about 20 minutes, just to make sure it'd got the chance to work. After I'd washed the dye off and dried my hair, I was left with a lovely pastel pink tint all over and I absolutely love it!

This is my hair before:

this is my hair after:

It took one bottle to do all of my hair. I probably could have done with one and a bit just to make sure everywhere was covered, but one did the job. I've washed my hair once since and the colour has come out a little bit, but it's still pink all over. I've already repurchased rosé and hope it clings a little more with a second coat.

BLEACH dyes are available from Boots stores with the colour dyes retailing at £5.

*Also, a little warning: do not use the 'Parma Violets' shade of the BLEACH dyes. They have been recalled due to staining/damaging peoples' hair so please don't buy it if you still see it out there! I haven't heard anything bad about the other shades, only this one*

have you tried BLEACH dyes yet? what colour is your fav?
