|Not happy ~|
For now, I have a custom mix of Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Teal, Special Effects Atomic Pink and a little Hot Topic RAW Candy Pink with tons of conditioner. I intend to clarify it a little since the color did darken while it was on my hair.
|This is Color Oops. I hate it.|
|These are bottles of Color Oops. I still hate it.|
I went through several mixes and finally figured out: Teal + Atomic Pink + tiny amount of Candy Pink + conditioner. GENIUS! It turned out okay, really. I was pleased with the color. Put it on, combed it through, and found it turned a bit cornflower blue when wiped on my "Hair Coloring" shirt. Yes, I have a shirt set aside just for when I use bleach or start playing with colors.
|The after of all that work! I also washed my hair again (Saturday night/Sunday morning) with a color-safe shampoo.|
For those of you thinking, "If you had a candy pink color dye, why didn't you use it in the first place?" Well, I had bought this when I was maybe 14. I had already bleached my hair, was prepared to do my hair pink. Much to my dismay, the pink didn't so much as stain my hair. When I was putting some in my lavender-purple mix, a bit got on the bathroom floor. It didn't stain the tile even! That may be a good thing for the floor, but that translates to no real color transfer to my hair. I hope that by adding it into my mix, it gave it a more purple look with the Teal.
Sometime later, I really want to get my hands on Ion's pastels or even Pravana. I want pastel hair so badly!
I will update this with a picture of the lavender VS the pink. The lavender will be quicker though in better lighting (the pink was in my bathroom, so yellow-y looking)
