Directions Lilac Hair Dye Review

Monday, 29 April 2013

 Last Monday evening I got bored of my platinum/white hair and decided to go for something different, so being the constant hair colour changing teenager I am am I decided to go for lilac because I had a couple of tubs of it in my dye collection. So following the instructions I put it on (well my mum did) and I left it on for about an hour. It suggests 15-30 minutes but I left it on for longer to get a more intense colour. Here's my result...

This was after two applications.. the first attempt I mixed it with about 80% conditioner so it was super pale and unfortunately came out a grey/silver colour so I had to apply it again, this time not mixing with any conditioner. It came out a lovely pastel purple shade, I really liked the outcome and the best thing was that it didn't damage my hair, I didn't get dead or split ends luckily. I have super short hair and one pot lasted me 2 applications.

The only downside is that it only lasted a week on me, but this is partly my own fault as I wash my hair everyday because where it's so short when I wake up in the morning it's all spiked up (short hair problems) *inserts grumpy emoji* 

It was still ok looking after a week but for me I found it too light, so this afternoon I died my hair bright blue and pink, I will have a post up in the next couple of days. If you follow me on Instagram: _samasaurus_ there is a picture of it. 

So if you're looking for an affordable lilac hair dye, I recommend this just be prepared for it to fade after around 5-7 washes. I got mine from for the bargain price of 2 for £8.49 and free delivery, they where here super fast as well! 

Do you have crazy coloured hair?

What hair colour do you have your eye on?
