Purple Hair with Pravana

Purple Hair with Pravana

I wanted to talk to you about my new purple hair with Pravana. As much as I love Manic Panic, I was tired of dealing with the shades bleeding whenever I would wash my hair. And I was sick to death of waiting for Special Effects to get in stock. So I decided I would go back to using Pravana dyes. I haven’t used them in a few years, but I’m happy to be trying them out again.

Turquoise Streak
For my turquoise streak, I put about 80% Cocoa Pink Argan Oil Conditioner into a bowl, then mixed in a tiny dollop of Pravana Green (which is really a dark teal) and a tiny bit of Special Effects Blue Haired Freak to try and turn the color from teal green to teal blue. Once it was mixed up in the bowl it looked like the China Glaze Wait n’ Sea Nail Polish in hue.

Vivid Violet Base
I mixed 50% Cocoa Pink Argan Oil Conditioner with 50% Vivid Violet. This color is intensely pigmented and I would not recommend using it straight. However, diluted with conditioner, it’s gorgeous. It’s soo bright. Additionally, when I was washing this color out, it rinsed out quickly, unlike some colors that take me 30 minutes to rinse out.

Wild Orchid Tips
I used Wild Orchid straight out of the tube on the tips of my hair. I had my friend Lea help me blend where Wild Orchid and Vivid Violet met with a comb. We basically combed that line to make the transition smoother.

I wish my layers were longer, but otherwise I love the colors.

I’m loving the dark purple, especially with dark lips.

I bought my Wild Orchid and Vivid Violet Pravana from here.
I bought my Green (which truly is teal, not green) from Amazon.

      This must be Pravana Vivids Violet week! I just did my own this weekend with the Violet, Wild Orchid, and a custom blended lavender on the top; as soon as I posted my own pics, an Instagram friend posted pics of her own new Violet hair. I used a little Vivids Violet last March, and I was shocked by how long it lasted, as well as how pigmented it is. Even diluted, it’s dark and intense! It was the only color I used last March that didn’t budge at all, and I was worried while using a soap cap that I wouldn’t get all the color out… it’s very stubborn! I love how you blended the bottom! Stand-alone, Wild Orchid is VERY bright. Hysterically bright. I have it in my bangs and a band of hair wrapping around the back of my head under the lavender but over the violet, and I think it works best if it is muted a little by other colors like you did, or the way mine is covered with a layer of lavender. If anyone wants an super intense, vibrant purple-tinged pink, Wild Orchid is the one! The only downside is the Orchid does fade a bit… it doesn’t have the longevity of the Violet at all. It’s totally worth touching up if it does fade, though. The tubes of Pravana are so massive, it could take a person forever to go through one, if only a small amount is being used. I really LOVE your hair!! GORGEOUS! The streak is lovely, too–I don’t think you over-diluted it at all! xox

      I use Pravana Violet to color my dreadlocs. It’s lasts a really long time and doesn’t bleed. Of coure since my hair is dark, it’s more of an eggplant color, but I like the more subdued hue on me.

      I want to dye my hair a funky color so bad but my sisters would freak.
