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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
