New Hair - Pink and Red

Hello darlings! So sorry for the lack of blogging lately, haha that is if you've been missing me even. I took a break over the summer months to concentrate on summer school. Now that I'm back in the groove for Fall semester classes, I'm making a promise to you and myself to blog about once a week.

Now to the part you really care about, pics right?

I used Ion Color from Sally Beauty for both the red and pink. For the red I used a demi color mixed with 20 volume developer instead of 10 volume for more vibrant color and deeper penetration of my hair follicle (which should mean longer lasting). The color I used is called Light Burgundy Blonde and looks like a cherry red to me.

For the pink I used Ion Color brights. This is a semi permanent dye, so no mixing was required. The color I used was Magenta. It starts off very bright, but fades to a lovely light pastel pink. I feel like I get to enjoy the best of both worlds (light and bright) with this!

Ion is great for alternative colors and is available over the counter, aka no license required. Also, I feel this brand lasts much better than manic panic and the like. Plus, so many colors are available! :D

What I used is $5 at Sally Beauty stores and is comparable to professional line of dyes like Pravana's ChromaSilk Vivids.

Pravana ChromaSilk Vivids is $8 to $10 (that's $3 to $5 more expensive than Ion). Furthermore, you need a license to purchase this stuff in a store. Psssh... screw that right? Sallys Beauty Supply!!

Anyway, here was the image that inspired me from EGG Magazine. ^_^

Stay lovely my dears!
