Remember when I had gotten my hair done, and I said I would try to get more color put in? Well, I definitely did! I went back and had pink, purple and yellow ombréd (real verb?) in. I purchased Manic Panic Amplified hair color in Hot Hot Pink, Electric Banana ( I wanted to go for neon hair) and Ultra Violet.
I had wanted to do a purple, pink, yellow gradient but it would take too much bleaching to achieve. Before using Manic Panic, I had been using Pravana hair color. Let me tell you, that stuff lasts!!! One year later and my tips are are pastel pink instead of blonde. Mind you, before this, I had already bleached my hair twice...
There are some more pics so keep clicking!
|Hot Hot pink , which looks rather reddish on me, but it'll fade to pink. Also you can see some of the Electric Banana.|
|More of the Electric Banana, it looks warmer toned than it really is.|
|A close up of the yellow, in the sunlight it practically glows!|
|Hot Hot Pink is one of my favorite colors to use.|
|My friend/stylist also mixed Ultra Violet with Hot Hot Pink at the tips. Here is what the full gradation looks like.|
|There are still pops of green/blue thanks to the teal.|
|My teal highlights are still holding up, even after 2 months.|
As you can see, I love multi-colored hair, haha. I have really thick wavy hair so I know that my hair can take the bleaching. Also, I don't really heat-style my hair, I prefer to let my waves to their thing. I try to take really good care of my hair, washing it 1 or 2x a week with color-safe shampoo and conditioner. Just wanted to share a few of the haircare tips with you! I did this about two weeks ago, but haven't gotten around posting it until now. Trust me, it's still holding up! The fading hasn't really been noticeable (Manic Panic will fade like a mother....)
Are you a fan of bright colored hair? Do you chalk or use clip-ins?
