Rosie goes Rosé: Bleach London Super Cool Colour

What better excuse for experimenting with pink hair than dancing on a float in the Brighton Pride parade?! I love the pastel mermaid locks that are all over my Pinterest and Instagram feed, but it's not something I'd want to commit to full-time, so when I realised that Bleach London's Super Cool Colour washed out in 2 - 10 washes I thought I'd give it a go.

I wanted a vibrant candy-floss shade of pink, so I opted for the Rosé colour.

Having just had my highlights redone at Shine literally two days before, I was pretty anxious about the pink dye staining my hair, so I did some research. I saw the bad reviews on the Boots website were complaining that the colour washed out too quickly - but that's exactly what I wanted! 

To apply, I followed the instructions on the bottle: apply to towel dried hair, leave for 15 minutes and rinse out (without shampoo or conditioner). I slathered on about 3/4 of a bottle, and massaged it in like shampoo. I got a fairly even coverage, but I would apply it more methodically next time to ensure perfectly even colour. The warmth of my blonde underneath created a bit more of a salmony colour than the pastel shade shown on the bottle - but I really like it! 

I applied the colour on Friday evening, and popped down to the park to get these photos. On Saturday, I was up early to take part in the Pride parade. We were out in the sun from 9am, and by about 3pm the sun had pretty much bleached all the pink out of my hair. I couldn't believe when I looked in the mirror and my blonde hair was back to normal!

Although I wanted the colour to come out quickly, I wasn't quite ready to give up the pink so soon. So the next morning, I used the remaining quarter of a bottle on the ends of my hair for a dip-dye. This time, my hair was almost dry when I applied the dye, and the colour stayed put for much longer - it took about four washes to come out.

Have you ever experimented with pastel hair colours?
