As I'm sure many of you can relate, I was beyond frustrated with my hair and with everything going on I was not able to see my hairdresser. What better time than quarantine to take my hair in my own hands and experiment a little!
I bought THIS rose gold temporary hair tint by Kristin Ess at Target over a year ago and found it just sitting in one of my drawers. It's an in-shower watercolor that creates a temporary pink tone when sprayed on wet hair and then rinsed out. I read the directions and it seemed easy enough so I went for it.
Here are the directions:
1. Shampoo your hair and rinse.
2. Apply spray in the shower on wet hair. For a more intense pink color, towel dry the hair before you spray. For a more subtle hint of pink, spray it directly on freshly rinsed hair. (The less water there is on the hair, the more tone the hair will soak up. Think of your hair as a sponge! If it's full of water it can only absorb a little color.)
3. Once you feel you've covered the hair you want to color, wait 1-2 minutes and then rinse.
4. Follow it up with your favorite conditioner or mask.
Tip: Do a small test piece in the sink and then blow dry it. You'll know how much color your hair will soak up and how quickly it will rinse out.
I followed the directions as best I could. I first shampooed my hair and then dried it as best as I could and sprayed my hair. Although the spray is very easy to use it doesn't really apply it evenly. I thought I sprayed it everywhere so I let it sit for several minutes and then rinsed and conditioned my hair. But when I got out of the shower I noticed my hair was very uneven and had dark pink in some spots and barely any pink in other spots.
So I decided to spray it again but this time I did it in front of the sink so I could get the spots that I missed. This also made my hair much more of an intense pink which I liked. Overall the directions to apply were pretty accurate but I would recommend doing it in front of a mirror to apply it more evenly.
The photo above shows how the pink washed out. On the left is a picture of my hair right after I applied it and the right is after one wash. After each wash it slowly came out.
The directions said it would wash out in 1-3 washes which I agree is accurate. Since my hair was a more intense pink it took a couple washes to come out. Below is a picture after 2 washes and you can see there's only a little pink left in the middle.
Of course when my girls saw my pink hair they wanted to do theirs as well. Since I still had about half of the bottle left we went for it. Let's just say the bottle is accurate and the pink tone is most visible on lightened, highlighted or blonde hair. Blondie has blonde hair so you could see hers much better than Lulu's. Lulu has light brown hair and you could only faintly see any pink if you held her hair up to the light, otherwise you wouldn't really notice.
Overall I was so happy with the results and would definitely recommend it for anyone with bright blonde hair. The hair tint is only $12 and a fun way to mix up your hair. Let's just say I bought another bottle and plan on using it another time.
If you end up trying it on your hair let me know- I'd love to see how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
