Neue Lila Haare

Thanks Mr Nice Guy for dying and bleaching my hair :)


He bleached it twice and then we dyed over it with Schwarzkopf Live Mystic Violet.

(slightly effected by the fumes of the bleach)

He wanted to let my hair rest for a couple of days but I was too impatient so we did it all in the same day. I don't think I could last a whole week being this blonde!

The underlayer of my fringe and bits of the side are a light pink/purple, but you can only see it in the sunlight or when I wear a side fringe.

doesn't fade out easily
one box for whole head of hair
plenty of colours to choose from
works on thick hair
easy to get off skin
easy to get ahold of

very itchy
30minutes to wait after application
not very easy to apply (but what home hair dye is)

The colour is really rich and the dye didn't dry out my hair. It was itchy on my scalp, but Schwarzkopf is the only dye I've used, and it's really effective on my Asian hair. The price was cheap considering it's permenant and I only needed to use one box. I've been purple before, so it wasn't a dramatic change, but I really like how it makes me look paler and I think the colour brings out my eye colour more, or that could just be me :p

I wasn't sponsored for the review, but I wanted to show off my new hair colour ^_^ Thanks again Mr Nice Guy.

Remember Be Colour Safe!

What hair colour do you want?

Oh, I tried that exact color about a year ago. But since my hair was henna dyed before, it turned black. :S Super cute on you though!

I would like to have really silver blonde hair. Or well, I LOVE green hair, but I'm starting to feel too old for that. >.<

the color suits you! I was thinking to color my hair red but when I bought a color I was too afraid it wouldn´t be "me" :D

This color suits you perfect!



OtherMix said...

I know that! I've used it too, I think I had a purple something colour?!

You should use Garnier - Colour Fructis(sp?)shampoo to make it last really long!

I love the colour on you!

Lila, cool! Hatte ich früher auch mal, ich hatte sogar die Farbe vom selben Hersteller und war auch total zufrieden damit. Ich liebe das auch wenn dunkle Haare einen blasser machen :)

Love the new hair colour! Nice job! Yeah, I prolly wouldn't have wanted to have that bleached hair for a week :P

Aaww this colour looks so good on you ! The fact it's more seenable with sunshine is even better :)
As for myself... I'd like something just lighter than my actual hair colour.

Izzy said...

the violet shade is gorgeous! you're lucky it showed up vibrantly on your hair. there was a time when I tried dying my hair purple but it just ended up looking black :P


pixelhazard said...

They have foam home dye now and it's much easier and less messy, I must confess. Your hair looks so great!

Also: I have an idea for your pay it forward thing so i sent you an e-mail just asking how you feel about the americal flag print? Intense dislike is totally acceptable but i'm itching to start so get back to me :)

I love it!!!
But, sorry, I don't think blond suited you XD

Mitha Komala said...

woah i love your new hair dear!! but i think the red tone one matches you better than the blonde one ;D <3


Carmen said...

Your hair looks so amazing, he did such a good job! I've tried that brand of hair dye and it just tinted my hair red, and I'm only half Asian. My hair is the most stubborn thing ever! Though I can't wait to see more photos of your new hair with outfits!

Super nice color! I think this is my first time seeing you without glasses too. :)

I'm currently wanting an ombre look for my hair but it's short right now so I don't even know if it's worth it...lol. XP

themilkclub said...

woah pretty colouring! and i LOVE the cut, the fringe looks super cute.

Natasha said...

Your hair colour looks so cool Grace! I love the purpley tinge, such a nice colour to have against the darker colour. I'm glad my sunshine post made you smile, nothing like sitting in the sun. xxx

Liz said...

That color looks so good on you. I've actually wanted go blonde for awhile - like short bleach-blonde hair. Only problem is - my parents would kill me hahaha.

Also - thank you for your concerned comment (awhile back). I feel like my blog posts are always really angsty, but I swear I am not like that in person! I just tend to like heart-breaking words hahah.
