Cassidy has been begging me to dye her hair blue for about two years now but I’ve been hesitant to do it. When she asked me this weekend I really couldn’t think of a good reason NOT to allow her to so on a whim we picked up a package of Splat Hair Dye in “Blue Envy” for $10.99 at our local Walgreens (they have it for $9.99 online!).
The box instructions give you the option of bleaching the hair first or not but states that for a more vibrant blue they recommend it so we did. Here is a progress shot after we had bleached the hair and before applying the blue:
After we washed out the bleach and completely dried it, we added the blue. The squeeze bottles they included made it very easy to apply both the bleach and then the blue coloring although they only provided one pair of gloves and it would have been more convenient to have one new set for each of the two steps.
After letting the blue sit for 30 minutes she washed then conditioned her hair and I was surprised at how great it felt. I thought for sure that the bleach would leave her hair feeling damaged but it didn’t at all. It still had the same soft texture as the rest of her hair.
After blow drying I took a few more shots so you could see just how blue this dye really is.
I’ve always heard that you need to buy expensive dyes to get color like this but I don’t see how her hair could be any more blue at this point! Of course, the real test will come when we see how long the color lasts but after reading online we added some dye to conditioner to use on her hair once a week to keep the color looking fresh. In a week or two I’ll do a follow up post and let you know how it’s looking!
For now, I have one happy blue haired girl!
So it’s been 19 months since I’ve posted something here and that is SAD! I actually really love reading blogger review sites when they give honest and well thought out opinions of things and I’m constantly thinking that I should get off my lazy butt and get back to it. Stop just benefiting from reading other opinions and start actually giving mine again!
So my game plan for the first month or two is going to be a simple on: Get up one review a week. I really think that once a week is a reasonable goal for now and I have a feeling that once I start I’ll WANT to start putting up more. The good thing is that I already have a ton of things I’ve been thinking “I should review this!” so I have a list of things to choose from!
And so it begins! 🙂
OH! Also, I’m probably going to do a bit of a redesign and I want to get some other review sites plugged so if you have one either drop me an email or leave a comment and I’ll check your site out! 🙂
