Special Effects Blue Velvet Hair Dye

Fantastic dye; by far the best blue I've ever used. This came out a vibrant and rich blue-black on my medium-bleached hair (I'm Asian, and it's super hard to bleach my hair to a pale yellow color). I only left it on for 30 minutes before washing it out and you'd think I'd left it on for 3 hours, that's how intense the color was! It appeared to have its own luminescence when it was fresh, and faded to deep purple after a month of washing my hair every day under hot water. Normally this is the death knell for most blue dyes, but not this one! This shade also didn't bleed out in the shower even after the first wash. It is absolutely stunning in the sunlight. My only issues with this dye are that I wished it faded to more of a true and lighter blue instead of purple, and that it was hard to remove from my hair even with bleach. If you're looking for a long-lasting, deep blue which fades purple, this is definitely it! -SynapticDefection-
