So, two weeks ago I dyed my hair blue, something which I've been wanting to do for a long time now and something which was actually on my bucket list. I had been eyeing up Bleach London's 'Blullini' non permanent hair colour ever since I had used their 'Rose' colour twice before to dye my hair pink and you can read about my cotton candy hair here. I have to admit it was the picture of the girl with the 'Blullini' on her hair which really sold me on this colour, it looked amazing. I bleached my hair before I used this and was expecting a fantastic light blue colour. Unfortunately the colour didn't come out very evenly, it was very blue on the roots but at the ends it didn't take very well and I was left with veins of blue through the bleach blonde, although I think I liked this effect better then it being all blue. I think this happened as the colour goes onto your hair when it's wet and the ends of my hair just didn't want to co-operate after bleaching and also because I probably could have done with two bottles, I didn't realise my hair had gotten so long! Also, at the sides of my hair just above my ears, my hair was purple, I felt as though I sporting My Little Pony hair with all the colours! I think the patchiness is quite obvious in the above pictures. Apologies for the photo quality in two of the pictures, they were taken on my phone.
I have to admit though I did love it, I loved my mermaid hair and the novelty of it all. Bleach London state that their non permanent hair colours should wash out within two to ten washes but more than two weeks later and a lot more than ten washes I am still left with blue, or should I say green left in my hair. The blue has faded to a mint green colour which I'm quite keen to get out of my hair! For me it's time to go back to my trusty blonde but I'm so glad I took the plunge and tried something new, it was fun whilst it lasted, funny looks from people (especially children!) and all!
I found the Bleach London range in the big Boots store in my city, the Bleach Total Bleach Kit is just €9.49 and their range of non permanent hair colours are €6.49 per bottle, you can see the range here. Bleach London now have a range of hair crayons too so I think I may try some out to determine whether or not I like the colour before committing to dye my hair. They have such a great range of colours though and I have my eye on their 'Bruised Violet' colour but I think I'll hold off trying it for awhile until I muster up the courage once again to stand out and ditch my usual blonde.
Have you tried any of Bleach London's products?
