How I Got Pastel Pink Hair


I've been wanting to have coloured hair for ages. Last time I tried it I got so fed up of the up-keep I ended up just dying it brown. I tried to have it pink and purple before. The purple managed to stay a bit longer due to the silver shampoo I use (which I often use to much of and end up with streaky purple-y bits anyway). I've tried the Crazy Colours and Directions, but neither managed an all over colour, and neither were a long-term fix.

I THINK I'VE FOUND THE SOLUTION!

Well, after browsing Instagram (I do this almost every night, just keep scrolling...) I found this stuff from Las Vegas called oVertone Haircare that was colour depositing conditioner. I had brown hair at this time and immediately wanted my silver locks back to try this! 

I booked an appointment to get my hair bleached and ordered the Pastel Pink Complete System. This included 8oz Daily Conditioner, 8oz Go Deep weekly treatment, and a special gift - 2oz bottle of their Daily Conditioner for traveling.

I'm pretty sure I annoy the hell out of my hairdresser. However, in one sit (and two full heads of bleach) I was back - albeit not as lusciously silver as I remember. 

The set is $45 to buy, which is the equivalent to about £30. I did get hit by the shipping cost though, which brought it up to £44. But - this lasted me about 2 months! Not bad at all.

Luckily it had got here from Vegas by the day I'd had it bleached - as my hair was half blonde, half orange! EEK. I think if I had used this on my previous silver hair it would have taken so well, but I must say for the colour of my hair it took amazingly.

I was using my Clynol Colour & Care Silver Shampoo with the Daily Conditioner, which was helping with the brassy tones of my hair, this helped the pink along as I continued to use it. I did make the mistake of using my Aussie Shampoo to give my hair a break of the Silver Toner with my oVertone Conditioner, but it practically stripped the pink out of my hair! Although, this is a good thing if you want rid of your colour quickly. 

The trick is to use a non-sulphate shampoo. I went back to using my Silver Shampoo as it seems to keep the colour on nicely. When I have bleached hair I practically bathe in the stuff. It's an absolute god send.

  2. I have never coloured or bleached my hair before as I am always scared it might ruin it more than it already is but I am loving the final product, looks good.
