Having brown hair for 19 years can most definitely bore a person. So when I visited my beloved New York I felt I had to go a little crazy. So I did the one thing my mom has always told not me not to do, I bleached the hell out of my hair. Not because of that, but I felt like I needed a change. Coloured hair is also one of the things I’m into right now, but it needs to have that pastel look in my opinion and a good way to get this kind of colour, that I’m sure many of you are seeing at the moment, is Manic Panic. Born in N.Y.C but available for to buy here in the U.K at £9.95. A semi-permanent hair colour creme that comes in over 30 different colours.
After I had washed my hair with a deep cleansing shampoo I allowed my hair to dry before applying. Once dry, I applied the Atomic Turquoise Manic Panic all over my hair using a tint brush, then covered hair with cling film for 20 minutes (tub says 30 but I don’t have much hair). Then finally I washed my hair and viola! Caution: wear gloves when applying.
As my hair was white it took to the colour extremely well, but the amazing thing is all you have to do is shampoo your hair a few times – I did it 3 times the night I dyed it, 2 times the day after and then 1 the day after that. It lightened and faded and turned into this pastel colour I have been lusting after for quite sometime now.
