Last time I did RAW brand Twisted Teal, but I did it over a patchy bleach job so after it faded it looked like this:
...which was okay, for a super-faded blue, but I felt a little like a walking piece of kelp. It was time to both change up the color and get a cut!
So after I got a cut I went to Hot Topic and got RAW Peacock Blue ($12.99 in store and on Amazon). It turned out super vivid and a gorgeous shade:
I like RAW because it's vegan/cruelty-free, comes in great colors (and fades into nice colors), lasts a long time and is super gentle on your hair.
Honestly my hair felt like it had gone through a deep conditioning after I washed this shit out. I'm not even kidding. Of course I had to scrub the bejeezus out of my shower afterward, but WORTH IT.
I'll update y'all on how long this particular color lasts, but I can say that the Twisted Teal lasted a solid 6 weeks before it started fading, and it was nearly 3 months before I started feeling like it had faded to a crappy-looking level (kelp level). That's pretty impressive for a demi-permanent dye, and it's like 3 times longer than my much-more-expensive Pravana Vivid Blue dye job survived last summer:Worse than kelp. What's worse than kelp? Someone find me an uglier plant to use for this joke.
I highly recommend it! So far it's the best brand I've used!
What do you guys use to dye your hair, and what colors do you use?
