Bleach London Hairdyes

I have been meaning to post about Bleach London hairdyes since November. But everytime I dye my hair with them I forget to take a photo of it freshly dyed. I've used 4 different colours since November and they are deffinately the best pastel hairdyes I have used. They last well; my longest is 6 weeks before it was too faded which beats L'Oreal's 3 washes, they are a good price at £5 a bottle, the bottle has lots of dye in; I use a lot of stargazer dye and on my long, thick hair I usually use at least 2, if not 3 bottles of stargazer - I use 1 Bleach London and the colours take well; unlike Smart Beauty which didn't even show on my hair.

I can't imagine they work too well on anything but blonde hair, but on my bleached locks they are amazing. And they are conditioner based so they leave my hair feeling soft and nourished. I've tried to cobble together photos from where I can so excuse the awful photos. 

Sea Punk (green)

This is the first colour I used and because I'm used to colours needing to be on my hair for ages for the colour to take I left it on for ages (like an hour) and it came out a really bright green. It eventually faded out to a pastel green. 
The first time I used this pink I wanted a really pastel shade so I only left it on for 20 mins. The next time I left it on a lot longer and the colour was more intense. 
I used this orange colour with the pink putting pink at the tips of my hair and it worked out really well. It's a really lovely colour. I just put the pink at the bottom, really roughly and left it on while I did the rest orange. I didn't worry too much about any overlaps.

Sea Punk and Rose

And this is what my hair looks like now - my favourite colour combination pink and mint. It was super easy to do; I just put my hair in a centre parting and was very careful when doing the edges. I put the pink on first as the green comes out super green so I didn't want to leave it on too long. It still came out really green so when I was rinsing out the dye I did a couple of washes with Head and Shoulders (want a colour to fade fast? - Use Head and Shoulders) which got the green to the right shade but faded the pink more than I would have liked.

2 washes later the pink was completely faded out but the green was still going strong so I just topped up the pink half (and left it on for the hour and a half I usually do)

This is the craziest thing I've ever done to my hair and at first I was really unsure and thought I might just bleach it all out, but I didn't. And I really love how it looks plaited!
