Pink hair

One last post before I leave for Europe on Thursday! A bit different, more along "hair and beauty" lines.


The other week YY linked me to this product called "Color Bug" by Kevin Murphy. It's basically temporary hair colour in powder form (which you apply over some product, and hairspray it to make it stay). I've liked the idea of pink hair for ages, but since my hair is basically black-brown, I would've needed to bleach it and then keep dyeing over that, which is too much commitment for me. After seeing that it actually works on dark hair, I went out and bought some, and tried it out yesterday.


You get several uses out of one can.


It worked really well in that the colour came out pretty intensely. I didn't like how the pink looked in my hair though, it was almost purple-ish and not in a good way.


There was a bit of fallout. I went out to run some errands, and by the time I came back there was a light dusting of pink all over my shoulders - wasn't too noticeable but it was there. This may have been because I'm not too skilled with the hairspray can. It washes out easily, though.


I wanted to wear it out again today, but I was short on time (and it had taken me ages), so I just put one streak in, which only took a second. It's a bit hard to tell, though. All in all, it's pretty fun to use but I don't really like walking around worrying about whether it's on my clothes or not.

I've thought about it and I won't be updating here while I'm away. I'm not taking a computer and won't be able to upload my nicer photos to the net, and I hate the idea of doing a whole string of text-only/phone picture posts on here. I've scheduled some entries though, and I'll be updating about my trip at my tumblr, if you care to follow (leave your username here if you do, I never know who's who on tumblr). So that's it from me for a while, probably until I get to London in three week's time!

  1. Maybe it's just the photos, but I like the way this turned out! Although, I'd be a bit annoyed too if it ran off on my clothes.

  2. I want to try that color bug thing! It looks really cool on your hair. I'm a bit put off by the fact it rubs off onto clothes though, it would look like a big pile of pink dandruff! Also your polka dot dress is really really cute. I'm following you on tumblr now! My thingie is http://elissiamm.tumblr.com/ :)

  4. Have a great trip!

    And I was wondering about these, as I have dark hair too. I would have tried them, if it were not for the fall out - oh well!

  6. That looks great! I have jet black hair and have always wanted to have pink streaks so I may have to try this. The fact that it rubs off is a bit off putting though.

  7. Whew, fancy prancy! I don't really like colours in my hair because it looks silly on me. But dayum, it's really cool on you! Such a shame it runs out so quickly...

    Have fun in the coming weeks! Enjoy it to the fullest, and I'll be following you on tumblr of course! Have safe trip, enjoy the flight, don't crash, don't lose your passport or bankcards. Have a great trip! :D

  21. have a wonderful and safe trip to London!! :) Can't wait to hear about it when you get back. Maybe this will be a nice break from your computer! (?) hehe :)

  22. This is actually amazing! I've always wanted to dye my hair, but I have the same hair colour as you and it would take so long to bleach it.
    It kinda sucks that it comes off on your clothes sometimes, maybe you need to be pretty liberal with the hairspray to keep it in? I looks like a nice quick fix for a night out though :) xoxo

  23. this is great! i love the colour! i'm scared that when i dye my hair, i wouldn't like the colour but since this washes out, it's great to see what you would look like with the colour :)

  29. Have an amazing time in Europe!! I've really wanted to try colourbugs. I would love to get pink tips but I'm not sure if I could afford/be bothered with the upkeep. These sound like a great alternative.

  30. I love this! I bleached the ends of my hair ages ago, but it's nearly all grown out now, so I understand why you don't want to do it. Enjoy Europe (: xx
