Last night I touched up the purple that is the underneath section of my hair. I used Chromasilk Vivids in Violet, which is what my stylist has been using. The first time he used it on me, it stayed VERY well. The second time, it faded out within a week, so he gave me more color so I could touch it up (he offered to do it for me but I didn’t have time to sit in the salon, so I told him I’d do it).
I washed with a clarifying shampoo first, Ion Clarifying Shampoo from Sally’s. Then I did not condition my hair, and I towel dried it and let it air dry for as long as I possibly could. Once Ray was home to help me section my hair so that I could apply the dye to the correct pieces, I blow dried the strands that were not yet dried. I prefer to air dry if I can, but usually I blow dry and style.
Once we had the hair sufficiently sectionied off, we foiled the purple in using a tint brush and comb.
After all the dye was in, I let it sit in my hair for 60 minutes.
Then I rinsed the dye out, and once it was thoroughly rinsed out, I washed with my Tigi Color Savvy Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner. I towel dried my hair, and then used the blow dryer just a bit to see if I could see the dye. It appeared to have taken.
So this morning when I went outside, I took a picture of my hair in direct sunlight.
In the direct light, you can see the very pretty rich brown, which is the majority of my hair, the purple dye peekiing out from underneath the brown, and some of the midnight blue that I had in my hair in august, even though we’ve dyed over it with brown! That blue just does not want to go away!
You can see how the ends of my hair are purple and curling inward a bit, looking like they were dipped in paint.
I really like it.
Do you like the Violet Chromasilk? Have you tried this dye before?
I do highly recommend it. Aside from this semi-permanent shade of Violet, it comes in 8 other colors: Silver, Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Magenta, Green and Blue.
