Hello everyone! ❤

, you may have noticed I have changed my hair! I thought I’d tell you all my experience of how I got my hair the way it is now.
I have lost count of the number of times I have changed my hair. It has been dyed it a variety of different colours over the years from blonde, pink to bright red. It has been so many times that even my gran says what colour hair does she have now LOL. A couple of weeks ago I decided to give the blonde a whirl again and while choosing a dye I seen this gorgeous shade ‘Lavender Vida Loca‘ by Bleach London and I just knew I just had to try it!
Bleach London has become way more popular over the years and it’s easy to spot their products in many high street shops and supermarkets. I got mine in Superdrug while shopping for other toiletries and skincare. They have a good variety of dyes, haircare and bleach.
I really think I chose this one because I love Ricky Martins song Living ‘la Vida Loca, such a classic!
The application was swift enough as it’s pretty much like a thick conditioner. I used this after washing my hair with shampoo and then towel drying my hair. After applying it I put a towel around my neck in case any fallout and I carried on with my afternoon by having a coffee while waiting the 30 minute processing time.
I didn’t apply with gloves which I know is a bit daft but it didn’t stain my hands as its such a pastel colour. The smell was very pleasant too which is a nice change from many hair dyes out there that just smell so strong that they make a room smell.
Washing it out was just as you would with a conditioner, washing with warm water (not hot as that tends to make dyes come out much faster) I wasn’t sure it was going to work as the dye itself looks way paler than the bottle but it turned out better than I thought a lovely pinky/lilac shade.
Now with a name like Lavender Vida Loca, I was kinda expecting the colour to be more of a vibrant purple but in all honesty, it isn’t really like that. For me its a faint purple with a hint of pink. I can’t say I don’t like it but because I love how it looks but it sure looks different than expected.
I have to say I can’t imagine this working on hair apart from pale to platinum blonde as its that faint and pastel that it wouldn’t be noticeable otherwise.
I love how it looks on my hair and how simple it is to use but the shade on the packaging isn’t the result I thought but thankfully one I am very happy with. Application is a breeze so no fuss redying when needed.
The whole experience has not put me off trying Bleach London products because its a brand I have used a lot of the years and many of their products are just brilliant. I might just try another semi-permanent hair colour of theirs in a few months time to see if that fairs better but you can count it being on my blog if or when I do, whenever that will be.
Bleach London is available in quite a few stores such as Superdrug. They also have their own website you can check out for yourselves to see what they have to offer.
Have you tried Bleach London products before; if so what are your favourites?
