bleach london bruised violet




bleach london super cool hair colour in bruised violet: £5 via boots
bleach london white toner: £7 via boots
lipstick: mac rebel

So, I decided to get a bit experimental with my hair after getting far too excited about the Bleach London hair dye launch. I used to have bright red hair and before that it was dark purple, but I've had my ombre since. I opted for purple as a) it was one of the three colours left, and b) I quite fancied a lilac as I know blues etc counteract the brassy undertones that are in my hair after bleaching. This particular shade is actually quite pink toned, as you can probably see! I did mix it with conditioner and it has now faded to a subtle pinky/lilac.
I have found that it faded very quickly, and after one wash I was left with said lilac-y colour, but my hair wasn't white before and I did apply with conditioner, so that probably explains it. The box states that they can last from 2-10 washes, depending on the colour and your hair type.
Before I coloured it, I did tone it with the white toner, although I (again) didn't leave it on for the full time as I didn't want a white ombre! I'm not sure if it's done much as I coloured straight over it, but I was just hoping for a slightly more icy blonde, so perhaps we shall see when this washes out.
Anyway, regardless of how long they last, I think they're so much fun and a quick, and temporary answer for hair boredom that won't leave you crying if it goes wrong. And hey, if you can't have mermaid hair when you're 19, when can you?

lots of love xxx

  7. Seen so many bloggers using these recently! Think I prefer them ombre style like this rather than the whole head like some I've seen which are abit too drastic! It's not like it's forever though eh?! X
