Special Effects Atomic Pink (UV) Hair Dye

This hair dye is brilliant! It is the first 'bright' hair dye I have used and I wasn't sure what to expect from it as I have only ever had my hair dyed at salons before this. Well, it was very easy to use. I bleached my dark brown hair first, to a pale yellow, then used this over the top. I used a cheap toothbrush as I didn't have a tint brush and it worked fine. Much easier to apply than I expected. Once on my hair I wrapped my hair in clingfilm and left the dye for about 6 hours. When I washed it out - WOW!! It was such a brillinat vibrant pink and the coverage was very even. The first few washes some pink did come out and it did stain my pillowcases and towels (and the collars of a couple of shirts) however this came out on a normal 40 degree machine wash, so no worries. I expected quite a lot of fading, but after 2 months the colour is still so vibrant and still gets me lots of compliments. It is growing out, I have quite a lot of root showing, I would consider this colour to be permanent. -Nerd-
