Ombre Split Dye- Sunset/Mermaid

Hey beauties! Hope your all well!
So im going to give you all a little bit of a run down on how I achieved my Sunset/Mermaid Split Dye!


For all of you who haven't seen the you tube tutorial yet- check it out here!

HAIR PREP

When dealing with all fashion/staining colours its so important to have a good base to start with! just like when you prime your face for makeup application, the same can be said with hair colour.
I Shampooed my hair prior to colour using my La Riche Directions Pre Colour Shampoo
But if you dont have anything like this, a normal shampoo will suffice!
I then let my hair dry 100%- it felt like crap.....hell i know it looked like crap but it was the base that i needed for my hair!

COLOURS USED

All (bar 1) colours used were Manic Panic! I literally went to every salon that stocks MP where i live to get all 6 colours! Not all the salons had a good range....so.....7 salons later.....i had most of the colours i needed!
The colours are
ROCKABILLY BLUE
PURPLE HAZE
VENUS ENVY
ELECTRIC LIZARD
PSYCHADELIC SUNSET
HOT HOT PINK (AMPLIFIED)

The only non Manic Panic colour i used was Yellow (do you think any of the 7 salons stocked MP yellow.....NO) so i went with PaintBox Fudge colour
YELLOW FEVER


MIXTURES

Now for the fun part! I like to use white paper and map out what colours i would like.
*NOTE- remember that paper is WHITE and your hair isnt the same white! so what ever colours look like on the white paper, they will be slightly darker on your own hair!


I basically start by seeing what all the colours are like undiluted and not mixed with any other colour
then i start mixing them and playing around! I always write my formulas next to the colour ive created! I basically keep going till im happy with my mixtures!

WASHING OUT

When the colour is fresh and still on the hair i use cool water and take my time when i wash the colour out! This will help prevent any bleeding of the colour!
I try not to shampoo my hair for as long as possibly after the colour to allow the colour to "set".
when i do wash it again i just was it normally! I don't have any bleeding or running of colour.

See my RAINBOW HAIR FAQ video here
which includes a hair washing demo!
