Special Effects Cherry Bomb (UV) Hair Dye

Dyeing your hair for the first time can be both an exciting and terrifying experience. This is especially the true for unnatural colours. Excited because you are telling the world who you are through your hair and terrified about how it will look, turn out, etc... So when i had finally finished and dried my hair, words cannot explain how amazing it turned out and how happy i was. And this has a lot to do with the colour, in this case it was Cherry Bomb. In all honesty, i chose the colour at random, i hadn't looked at people's pictures or any reviews, it was just a spur of the moment thing. But i couldn't have chosen a better colour. It was bright and shiny and everything a person could possibly want from a colour. Given the name i had originally expected it to be darker, but i am glad it was not. This is a colour for people who want to stand out from the crowd. Too often do you walk down the street and everyone looks exactly the same; this colour makes all the difference. It is one of a kind and not to sound too cliche, but it is simply the best. Unfortunatly, there are some downsides, nothing is perfect, yet some (meaning me) would argue that this is as close as one can possibly get. Firstly, it was quite messy to use, not shocking since i was a first-time user at the time, but messy all the same. Also, for the first week it bled, not too much but i had a pillow case that looked like something died on it after i went to bed with wet hair. And, yes the colour faded, too quickly for my liking, but maybe that just reflects on how often i wash my hair. Overall, i doubt that even this incredibly and unnaturally long review, expresses how much i am in love with this product. You always hear great things about Special Effects hair dye, but this is the colour that really did it for me. I would recommend it to anyone in a instance. Since then i have used Blue Mayhem, Nuclear Red and Candy Apple Red, but none compare to this thing of beauty. I only hope that others enjoy this as much as I did, and that at some point i can find the time to redye my hair this colour. -Rachel13-
