purple hair, don't care: l'oreal feria lavender


so with exams looming and procrastination at its highest, i did what any good student would do... i dyed my hair a ridiculous colour. well, it's better than revising.

for my birthday i got the l'oreal feria lavender and pink pastel kits, and thought it was about time i tried them out. they're specialised for light blonde hair, and act as a subtle colour when put on your hair. it only lasts between 3-5 washes, so i thought i might as well. i've always talked about dying the ends of my hair like a lavender purple, and this kit gave me exactly what i wanted. i didn't want a bright purple, and the colour that came out was very subtle, but still noticeable enough for my housemates to notice. also, i liked that it wasn't so drastic as it looks nice and blended in rather than a harsh line in my hair. 

it was super easy to apply, and kinda came out in a thick putty. the kit came with gloves, but i reapplied without using them and it didn't stain my hands. i really love the outcome, and it's certainly brightened up my day full of revising. i think it'd look really pretty if curled, as then the blonde and purple can kinda blend together - a spectrum curl!! or even up in a ponytail or high bun. i will be trying these out whilst it lasts!

anyway, the crazy times are over, and it's back to the books! let me know if you've tried these colours out :) xo

  12. I love it! I've always wanted to try dying my tips a different colour, but I am too chicken to try it. I may try these out though, when my hair is longer since they're not permanent.
