The worst thing that can happen to grey hair is that after a few washes a yellow/blonde undertone starts to shine through. A shampoo with purple or blue pigments supposedly stop this from happening, but the effect of it is minimal.
I needed something more radical against the yellow glow on my hair. Temporary hair dye in a pale cool color (opposite of the yellow) was the perfect solution. Dying your hair with this pastel hair dye only takes 15 minutes. I use lilac from Directions, the pastel color changes from a light blue to a pastel fuschia in different light. But after a few washes the color fades and the hair color becomes a cold toned grey.

I've always been so amazed by your hair! I wonder how it'll turn out on other hair colors. I don't think I've ever seen hair dye in that form. Almost seems like some sort of paint for art! Neat!

Great tip for when you have the same issue, I have special shampoo, kind of grey shampoo, for that issue. Works very good!

I'm in serious hair envy! I was wondering how you do hair maintenance with roots growing out? :o I have dark hair, and while I'd love to do something like this, I don't think I have the guts to keep re-bleaching my hair. Still, I love it! :)

This is a really nice colour on you. Crazy Colour so a lovely cool lilac too.
Have you tried Loreal Luocolour? I used to use than in shade P01 to get my hair down to a white/gray/lilac shade, and it was quite effective. The best part is that you can control the strength while mixing it to give a strong or sheer effect.

Wow, it must be a lot of work keeping up with pastel-colored hair, but I'd say the end result is worth it :) Now if only I could lift my hair color to a nice, bright blonde to get some cool colors in it, but it's so dark I think it would fall out first.

AP said...

love your hair, I used to have a similar colour. Found your blog while looking through images on tumbler.

Kelly said...

How light do you bleach your hair before applying? I've been using Directions Silver color for a few months and love it, using Shimmering Lights shampoo/conditioner gives my hair a lilac hue, but I'm looking for a darker grey. Any tips?

Balancebeam said...

Hej hej, vraagje: hoe veel potjes gebruik jij voor je hele haar 1 of 2? Was op zoek naar mensen met lilac haar en tips haha.

Fijn blog overgens!

I naturally have ash blonde hair and am tempted to put pastel colours in but I'm scared that it won't suit me and then won't come out! It looks gorgeous on you!
