D02283C8-42DD-4469-A097-C12BD9B5E148Hey everyone !  This will be a slightly short hair dye review . I was sent this box in December , but I had just recently bleached my hair , and I really didn’t want to damage my hair by bleaching it again , plus pink dye wasn’t a veggie based dye. So I asked one of my friend’s if she wanted to dye her hair and possibly use this bleach. I wasn’t there for the actual bleaching and she sent me some pictures afterwards , so I’m basing this review off of her experiance.

She did later dye with the Pastel Pink which I think may have lightened her hair a bit more while also depositing the pink shade. But if you bought this wanting a pure platinum blonde or icy white shade, I would reccomend Wella or another bleach system. Plus toner. 

 Also if you do get a result like this and don’t really like the yellow tones, purple shampoo and conditioner is your friend. It will cancel out some of the yellows and make your hair a bit more ashy or cool toned.  

 My friend did state that her hair was actually still pretty soft , so thats good . I’ll post her pink shade in the other post tomorrow .

Let me know what you think and some of your favorite bleach brands . Me personally , I really like Wella lightner and developer, as I think it works great , even on dark hair and is pretty gentle on already bleached hair. Also remember when bleaching, developer strength matters,as 20 is as high as I usually go and 40 being pretty dangerous if your hair is too light or has already been bleached. Well have a great week !
