Unsuccessful Purple Hair

I dye my hair a temporary colour sometimes and even though I’m in love with Manic Panic’s Purple Haze, I decided to try some new products which didn’t go quite as well.

First I tried Aesthetic by Lime Crime because the colour looked gorgeous and I absolutely love their lippies, so what did I have to lose? Well, I had nothing to lose, that’s what.

Ummm. There was a good amount of colour in the packaging at least? But obviously it didn’t really do anything to my hair. Some strands had a pinkish highlight, but really? I left the dye in for two hours on my entire head – bleached and natural blonde – and nothing? I don’t even know how that could’ve been achieved but at least it didn’t ruin my hair, I guess. They have great makeup but I’m not going to buy their hair dye again.

Additionally, I got some Dye Hard hair gel from Manic Panic (in the shade Purple Haze of course) because I wanted to try out a product that would stay in my hair for a day only. Since the tubes were small, I used it only on the underside of my hair. At first, it worked pretty well; the colour was pigmented and seemed to flow nicely when brushed out. And then…

Super faded. The product itself was great, it wasn’t messy and it was easy to apply, but I was disappointed that it dried to a very faint purple colour when it was pigmented wet. However the gel was way more successful than Lime Crime’s pretty big failure.

I’d really like to try some more colours from different brands but for now, my favourite is still Manic Panic’s Purple Haze – by a long shot.

I can’t believe 2017 is almost over! I dropped the ball on taking more aesthetically-pleasing photos and that’s really my only goal this year. I’d like photos that look a bit more professional and actually, I’m thinking of painting my room white so I have a clean canvas to take pictures against. In any event, I definitely want to continue blogging through the new year and I hope that better photographs will follow.

I hope everyone has a wonderful new year and that 2018 will treat you well!
