Crazy Color Pinkissimo* £8

So having pink dip dyed can now be crossed off my beauty related bucket list! My Nan may not be speaking to me but I really love the look of coloured dip dye, so I was very excited to try the bright pink semi permanent Pinkissimo dye from Crazy Color available at Dirty Looks My natural hair colour is brown but my ends have been dip dyed twice, recently with the Bleach London kit. I also tried the Bleach London semi permanent colours and didn't have much luck, the colour barely showed up on my hair and was gone after one wash. I was expecting a bit more from Crazy Color!

Crazy Color was definitely harder to apply than the Bleach London dye, the formula is a very runny liquid. I found it fairly hard to work quickly to apply the dye where I wanted it and keep to it even. It says on the bottle to apply with gloves but doesn't come with them and I didn't have any so ended up using my hands. Be warned it stains hands quickly but will come off after a few exfoliating sessions. I left the dye on for about 40 minutes and was quite pleased with the results! The colour pay off is brilliant, my hair wasn't the lightest before but it still took to the dye really well. It's slightly patchy and not even in places but I think it looks okay when my hair is curled or slightly messy (which it always is!)

I have washed my hair twice times since using Crazy Color and it is still a noticeable pink but the colour has toned down in brightness and is a lot more subtle, I probably have one more wash before it's gone. If you are after a non permanent change to your hair then I really recommend Crazy Color, I will definitely be redoing this again and really want to venture out to try some other shades! My Nan isn't a fan but I have had a few compliments, and what girl hasn't wanted pink hair at some point!

Crazy Color is available from Dirty Looks here.

  2. It's a really nice colour :) If you want a pink that lasts longer though I'd try Directions hair, it last longer than Crazy Color dyes :)

  3. This stuff was my holy grail as a teenager I used almost every colour in tern, I even now get a little pang of 'I'm going to pour a bottle of pink crazy dye all over my hair!' but I have no idea where to buy it! Lovely review :)

  7. I used the XXL colour to dip dye my hair pink, and I was so pleased with the result! It also came with gloves and smelt lovely! If you were to ever do it again I'd defo recommend Live XXL xx
