How to maintain a beautiful pink shade

One of the comments I get a lot from friends and strangers is how beautiful my shade of pink is. There are two secrets behind my hair colour: the first one, I discussed about it in this blog post where I decided to bleach and tone my hair white before applying the pink dye.

The second… I am CONSTANTLY retouching my hair to avoid my colour to fade to a horrible yellow-ish pink colour. Trashtastika from The Fashionate Traveller let me know that semi-permanent hair dyes like Manic Panic and Special Effects don’t actually damage the hair: the damage comes from bleaching and bad hair care.

I noticed that my roots tend to fade faster then the rest of my hair so knowing that retouching my hair is not damaging, I regularly mix a little bit of pink hair dye with conditioner and apply it to my hair and leave it on for around an hour.


You can see the top si definitely yellowish-pink while my ends are still a nice shade of pink. I hate uneveness so it’s time to correct this!

Mix your dye and conditioner together. Currently, Special Effects Cupcake Pink is back order so I use more Manic Panic Cotton Candy but I can’t wait to receive more Special Effects at the end of the month =X Once you’re happy with the colour apply it to your hair focussing on where the colour has faded more. Don’t forget to take a glamourous picture as well LOL


Leave it on for a while: the conditioner will help condition your hair and the dye will give your colour the boost it needed!


And because everyone seems to love pink hair, here are daily pictures of my hair :)
