Step Three (Day Three) Ombre Hair -Complete
The bleaching I did yesterday was messy, but the colouring was horrific! The dye itself was the thinnest, runniest liquid I have ever used to dye my hair. The dye dripped everywhere and dyed everything instantly, except for my hair! My counter is now purple in spots, my skin is purple and it won't wash off! I only wish my hair was the colour my skin has now become. I would be happier.
I saturated my hair with the purple dye and let it sit for 30 minutes according to the instructions. I then got in the shower and rinsed my hair out, as it says to do, until the water runs clear. The water did not run clear. When the water was as good as I thought I could get it, I shampooed, as per the instructions and even more dye came out and took ages to run semi-clear. At that stage, I decided to condition my hair because of all the damage it was suffering through and even more dye came out. After 15 minutes of rinsing my hair out, I gave up that it would ever run clear. The dye being rinsed out also made my tub extremely slippery! I am sure the dye will run out every time my hair gets wet until I cut it off. :-/
Any drips that occurred after towel drying my hair, dripped dye onto my clothes, floor and even a wall, as I must have shaken my head at some point. I had to run around cleaning up the drips the best I could. What a nightmare!
If you choose to use Splat hair colour, I suggest you use towels and clothes that you are prepared to throw out in the garbage. I am too terrified to put them in the wash, as I figure it will dye everything in the wash and more than likely a few loads of laundry after that.
