Fifty shades of PINK

  What is your monthly tradition? Mine has been refreshing my hair for past 4 years. I went from dark brown to platinum blonde 4 years ago. It took me 10h and 5 bleaches to achieve the color I wanted. After a while I toned it down with silver grey color. It was before the grey hair hit the trend. So I was once a cool kid. 

  And 4 years later I landed on the world of pink. I modeled for Splash hair dye last December and ended up keeping the color. I have this feeling how pink cold be the new black. Surprisingly pink goes with many color pallets. Especially clashing color like orange, green sky blue etc.. It definitely opened me up to be more playful with my style.

 There are literary fifty shades of pink. Different tone has different character. I wound like to share couple of shades and brands of dyes I’ve tried along with some side notes. If you are thinking about joining the pink family, this can be the guidebook for you. 

1. Splat hair color– Berry blast $9-10

Price: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

# of dyes (mid length): 2-3

Color intensity: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

Color resistance: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

Scent: β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†

Magenta like pink. Need around 3+ boxes of dyes for mid length. Because the consistency is very thin and hard to spread evenly. It dyes the scalp and skin hair line and hard to remove. In fact, the color is very vibrant and intense. 


2. Joico Vero K-PAK color intensity semi-permanent hair color– hot pink $10-11 

Price: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

# of dyes (mid length): 1-2

Color intensity: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

Color resistance: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

Scent: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

I personally love Joico hair care products. I use their damage repair shampoos and conditioners. This dye is very thick and conditioner like. However it fades quicker than the other dyes. The shade of pink is close to red. 


3. Pravana locked in semi-permanent hair color – Pink $10-11 

Price: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

# of dyes (mid length): 2-3

Color intensity: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

Color resistance: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

Scent: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†

The shade is very similar with Joico color. This dye seems to fade the least. However the tube is on the smaller side and need around 2-3 dyes to cover entire hair. Non disturbing scent as well. 


4. Adore shining semi-permanent hair color– 82 Pink Rose $7-8

Price: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

# of dyes (mid length): 1-2

Color intensity: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†
Color resistance: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†
Scent: β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†

Don’t judge the book by its cover. Although this is considered as a “cheap dye” this one has been my favorite cost wise and shade wise. Vibrant pink with hint of purple underneath. I usually throw half a bottle on to my Joico damage repair conditioner after 2-3 washes to refresh.
