If you’ve seen on social media, I recently switched up my look (I can’t believe I haven’t spoken about this on my blog yet, sorry!). I now sport pink hair!
I wanted to start a series on my YouTube channel where I test out pink hair dyes for you guys and show you the results! First up was Pixie Lott’s Paint Wash Out Hair Dye in Sorbet…
You can watch the full YouTube review here:
To use the product, you first need to wash and shampoo your hair (don’t condition) before towel drying and combing through thoroughly. Then you can squeeze the dye out and start applying (be sure to wear the gloves included in the box to save staining your hands). I have an awful lot of hair so I used 2 tubes of the product and it took about 20 minutes to apply all over.
I left it in for 20 minutes and then washed out before realising I had missed quite a few patches (the worst!) so I had to redo those patches and left in for slightly longer as I found the colour hadn’t taken so well to other places. After leaving in for another 30 minutes I washed it out and I was happy with the colour.
I was super nervous about dying my whole head pink before filming this video but I was really pleased with the results. The shade wasn’t as vibrant as I had wanted (it was more similar to colour it should be when it fades after one wash) which was a shame but it was still a pretty almost rose gold shade. The dye also took more to the roots rather than the ends of my hair.
A couple more points – the dye comes out of the tube as a gold shade but this turns pink once applied (bizzare) and the colour only lasted ONE wash which I was really disappointed about. Great for those who want the colour for a special occasion but any longer you’ll need something more pigmented.
The Pixie Lott paints are currently on offer in Superdrug stores, now £3.99 instead of £5.99!
