So as you may know i love changing my hair colour......a lot.....lets be honest!!
So today I'm here sharing with you all my latest hair colour change which is RAINBOW!! YAY I now feel like a unicorn!! haha!
I have already done a video tutorial on how i achieved my new colour which you can view here
My hair its rainbow and so are my extensions!Without my extensions (or makeup) my hair looks like this-
This pic was taken right after my hair was first coloured, the Yellow didn't take so i ended up using a different brand which too better. (more details below...keep reading)
With extensions its so much fun! Also depending on how you clip them in, you rainbow looks different every time.
My extensions are from IrresitibleMe.
They are the Royal Remi, 200g 20" in "Royal Platnium Blonde"

So cutting to the chase, ill show you what i used to create this look!
what i usedFor my first colour application i used all La Riche Directions
Purchased from a online store called Pimp My Eyes
The colours i purchased were
The "Green Apply" and the "Bright Daffodil" i left undiluted and used them just as they were.
All the other colours i mixed with conditioner to get more out of the product and to dilute it and make it more pale.
For the Blue, Purple and Pink i mixed 1/4C Conditioner with 1Tbs of colour.
For the Peachy colour i mixed 1/4C Conditioner with 1Tbs "Mandarin" and 1tsp "Pink Flamingo"
The yellow didnt end up taking so i used Fudge Paintbox (purchased from priceline) in "Yellow Fever" which too better!
Hair prepeach colour will need different hair prep! For Directions it needs to be applied on freshly shampooed hair! So i washed my hair, shampooed it then let it air dry 100%! any excess moisture will dilute the colour- and any conditioner or hair products will stop the colour from penetrating correctly!
ALSO this colour will only work on BLONDE HAIR!! make sure you are blonde or even white before attempting this colour.
ApplicationIts best to watch the above video to see how i did it.
But i literally grabbed sections of hair, roughly 1" by 1" and painted them a colour. I left the section without foil and just gently continued colour the rest of my hair! the important thing is to not squish the colours together, and (it goes without saying) using a different brush for each colour and cleaning your gloves, or wiping the colour off before moving to a new colour.
I then loosely clipped it up, wrapped it loosely with cling wrap and let it process for a hour or so!
RinsingSo i rinsed my hair with cool water. trying my best to keep the colours separated and not to mush the all together. This is the stage that colours can bleed into each other so take your time!
Then when the water was running clear i conditioned and then rinsed that off and i was all done!
Shampooing in the future is just the same as normal. Try using cooler water and if the suds are coloured try rinsing it off as fast as you can to prevent any bleeding of colour. I haven't had any issues with the colours bleeding.
ANYWAYS! if you have any more questions let me know and ill try my best to answer them or even do a rainbow hair FAQ!!
Love you guys!!
