I was dye-ing to change my hair, so Saturday I picked up stuff to let me change it to Sailor Mercury Mermaid shades in Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise.
I picked up Ion Color Brilliance Semi-Permanent Brights Clear Shade Diluter, aka the pastellizor (according to the girls at Sally’s Beauty Supply).
I also picked up Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise. I already had Manic Panic Black & Blue at home, but you could try After Midnight Blue or a tiny bit of Raven.
I used Color Zap (because Sally’s was out of One n’ Only Color Fix) to remove most of my previous color. It left all but a few pink sections of hair. In retrospect I probably could have skipped this step. It made the ends of my hair gummy (yuck) and I cannot WAIT until I get my hair cut because they feel awful.
I mixed together about 2/3 of the tube of Clear Shade Diluter with 1/4 jar of Atomic Turquoise and I put that on a few sections of hair. I put Atomic Turquoise on almost all of the rest of my hair. I put a bit of Black & Blue mixed with Atomic Turquoise on the crown of my head.
After subjecting my hair to the Color Zap, I pampered it with the DermOrganic Hair Repair Masque with Argan Oil. I used the DermOrganic Leave-in Shine Therapy to blow dry my hair, which helped it to be soft and the gummy ends to not feel so bad.
I can’t wait until I get my hair trimmed! It needs to be shaped.
What do you think of my new mermaid colors?
