Bleach London Super Cool Colour in Rose

I'd actually been debating using one of the Bleach London colours on my hair when they first launched but for some reason decided against it, it was only on a whim yesterday that I grabbed a bottle. After a mini debate "I'm 26 years old, should I really be dying my hair pink?" I decided to go for it anyway and these are the results.

Application

Don't follow the instructions on the bottle if you want a decent colour pay off. The bottle tells you to pretty much shove all the colour on your towel dried head, wait 15 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water, and you'll be left with pink locks.
At first I wanted an ombre finish so I coated the ends in loads of colour, left these for 5 minutes and then applied the rest. I waited ten more minutes and rinsed thinking I'd step out of the shower with a much coveted candy floss head, instead I was left with nothing but a gingery hue and a sense of disappointment.
So back on the gloves went and this time I emptied the whole bottle into my hair, massaged it in, and waited 25 minutes. The photos above are the end result.

Mess

My skin, neck, and shoulders ended up very pink indeed. It came off after some scrubbing in the shower but if you want to avoid this then an old towel or t shirt is deffs recommended. And maybe take a bit of care in the application rather than haphazardly slapping it on like I did.

Colour

After using the Bleach London supercool colour I've read a few negative reviews where people haven't been happy with the vibrancy of the colour. I can't really complain as I'm assuming the range was created for people with bleached hair and my barnet is a dirty ashy blonde. In the photos above you can see the colour has clung to my highlights but hasn't done a thing to my mousy roots and I don't imagine leaving the colour on any longer would have changed that.

Overall

I paid £5.00 for this and I have pink hair so I'm not going to complain, it's a little bit patchy but I didn't apply it very well and my colour was patchy beforehand anyway. I haven't washed mine yet but I've heard it's not got the greatest staying power - with this in mind I think the Bleach London colours are best suited for a weekend or if you fancy a change for a night out.

  2. Love this! I have Awkward Peach and leaving on for 15 minutes made no difference at all (although I am a dark blonde so I wasn't expecting it to be super vibrant). x

  6. Def agree with all of this, I tend to do mine every other wash, which makes it pretty expensive in the long run but colour works well on my hair! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  8. I have this product sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used; I just haven't got around to it yet. I was going to bleach my hair first before using it though because I'm after a vibrant pink x

  9. I really love this colour on you, it looks awesome! Although, top tip: if you buy a really dark shade of the colour you want (in your case it would be bright pink) then mix a few dollops into your conditioner and apply it to dry hair (leave for about half an hour) it works just as well, if not better, and you end up using a lot less dye! This is how I dye my hair lilac!

  13. I agree with the gingery mess! This stuff was ridiculous....I had my hair lightened by a professional hairdresser to a near-on white blonde and it didn't go anywhere near pink. I got a peachy hue alongside white roots. WTF?? You've proved that it can create a lovely pink shade, but it annoys me when you follow instructions to the letter and get nothing like what you hoped for!
