And now for the second half of my split hair dye review . I really wanted to try this as I had previously had tried the pastel lavender .
I liked the shade but wanted a bit more longevity and the pastel shade faded more bluish. Plus I thought a neon lavender sounded really cool.
And here it is , a nice pudding consistency.The top is the Neon Lavender And here’s an old picture of the pastel lavender . Surprisingly the pastel looks a bit brighter .
So let’s check out what it looks like on my hair. Keep in mind this is how light my hair was before adding the dye.
Of course I did dilute the dye in conditoner on my ends , this as before the second root bleaching.
It really didn’t stick too well to my darker blonde hair and faded to a silver on the ends. So for those who are interested in diluting in conditioner , be aware of the level of blonde you’ll need to be. I did think it was a bit odd that a neon shade would be less pigmented . If you read my other neon iroiro shades such as Neon Pink or Neon Green these shades even diluted covered hair really well.
Adn some parts of my hair still turned silver . I had to later add a bit more dye a week after to touch up those silvery parts.
Here’s the lavender with the pastel bubblegum pink . I left this in my hair for about 8 hours , this really helps the dye sink into my hair. It also is super conditioning too. And here’s after a cold rinse.
It’s a super nice and vibrant lavender . Some parts of my hair seem a bit more blue toned , but the ends look nice.
This dye did need a bit more babying than some other purple shades I have tried from other brands. I did wash in cold water , and only used small amounts of shampoo. Plus the old adding dye into my conditioner trick as well.
And let’s show how this looks faded.
After almost 3 weeks :
The lavender has faded , and changed to some other colors. Some parts of my hair are a nice silvery lavender , with some lilac and the top has turned blue ? I wasn’t super happy about that , but it’s not a bad shade of blue. I’m just confused as to why it turned blue in the first place . Maybe its the way Iroiro mixes their lavender shades. I think after letting this fade a bit more I may go back over this with the pink to get a more even lavender. Well let me know what you think and if you have tried any purple dyes ? I used to really like Punky’s violet but I heard recently the formula changed . I may go back to Arctic Fox Purple AF (formally purple rain ) or try Lime Crime Pony.
