dip dye

 
dress: topshop
necklace: asos
ring: primark
shoes: topshop

Saw this post the other day and couldn't resist trying it out the same night! I recently had a dream that I dyed my hair red again like years ago and instantly hated it. I woke up with a wet pillow. Saying that I still wanted to try this because it's not really using 'proper' dye! And I can report that it all came out after one wash (two shampoos and a conditioning treatment). As it's a powder - and therefore dries your hair out - it does make hair appear a bit dead. I think my hair looks quite ratty in these pictures but I just think that adds to the whole 'grungy' feel of the look. Lolz.

Had to wear black with the hair so it didn't stain anything which isn't hard for me, about 30% of my wardrobe is just black! All the colours brightened it up a bit anyway. Spent yesterday mostly at the post office (where the woman was SO rude, ugh) and returning stuff to stores. Also ruined my life with a Pizza Hut buffet. Oh noez.

  1. Oh my god, you're hair is amazing. I attempted to ombre my hair last night, but because I've dyed it red in the past, the ends kinda went a reddy blonde. It's nice, but not very noticable! x

  2. I really like it, it's quite subtle which makes it look really pretty!

  3. I was sceptical about these chalks but it looks very nice in your hair! Works well with wavy/curly hair I think...love that dress as well
