Before & After
DIY Hair Colour
I’ve had pink hair for quite some time now, going back and forth between browns, purples, reds and pinks but have never successfully done a blue/green combination. After lifting most of the pink from my hair recently and turning it into a more ‘natural’ shade, I got bored after a couple of months and thought maybe now is the time to try it out.
I then ordered a heap of Crazy Colour semi-permanent hair dye from bellezo.com. If you are in Malaysia and wondering where to buy fun colours from, the internet is your best friend. I particularly like Bellezo as they carry a huge range of Crazy Colour hair dyes and have a shipping flat rate that turns out to be fairly reasonable if you buy a fair amount off the website. They even sell their own bleaching kit so you can get everything in one go!
I always get asked how do I colour my hair such bright colours. So I created a flow chart to help anyone else who might want to know:
Also, here is a previous post explaining the dye process in a little more detail with useful links for anyone who is interested.
But really all I wanted to say was… look at my mermaid hair! 😀
I did the whole process at home using :
- Gatsby Ex-Hi Bleach (purchased from Guardian)
- Crazy Colour in Peacock Blue (purchased from Bellezo.com)
I would usually have done the pre-lightening at a salon, but I wanted to see what home bleaching would be like using the Gatsby bleach. Overall I’m pretty happy with the results.
*Note: if using Gatsby, you may want to repeat the process a few times (no more than once a week to avoid damaging hair 2 or 3 times) to achieve the right amount of lightness in the hair. It’s better to repeat the process than leave the bleach on your hair for too long.
I hope you found this somewhat informative!
