Coloured ends for Dark Hair (feat. Bleach London and FudgeHair)

A few Sunday’s ago I decided it was time to give Bleach London The Big Pink a go. I think it’s worth stating that it isn’t designed for my hair type at all. It’s to be used on light, bleached hair but instead mine is darkened brown but I thought I would try my luck. The Bleach London range is made up of 12 different colours from beautiful pastels to darker vibrant shades. I chose The Big Pink as it is one of the most likely to show up on my hair.

I applied the colour to dry hair as I felt this would help it stick better and left it on for the recommended time. I shampooed my head but was careful not to shampoo over the dye so that I could keep it as pigmented as possible. The results were what I expected, a pink tint that was just about noticeable.  I love the smell of this hair dye and it didn’t dry my hair out at all. I have tried a pink in the past which was more pigmented that this but as this is aimed at bleached hair I think they have their pigment just right. If it is noticeable on my hair I am sure it would be very vibrant on light hair but it doesn’t seem so pigmented that it would cause staining which is important if you want it simply as a temporary colour.

 To intensify the colour I used the Fudge Hair Urban Colour Chalks (sadly Bleach don’t have any)which are fun and come out within one wash. I was expecting this to run onto my jumper but they didn’t at all as you can seal the colour in by simply using hairspray. I always find this sort of chalks a little difficult to apply as you have to rub it on your hair but I am very excited to find out more about the new spray chalks L’oreal and Bumble and bumble are releasing! I’d recommend trying FudgeHair chalks if you have dark hair and simply want colour ends for a day it’s great fun without any commitment.

(I’m so sorry about my eye, I sneezed too hard-and yes that’s the truth)
I have a few other temp colours to blog about soon so keep an eye out if you are interested! Bleach at home dye’s are available from Boots and they do a good shade range and a few different products too (Dip dye kits, Dry Shampoo and what I’ve heard is a great mask). However as the name suggest’s it is very much for Bleached hair. If at home colour is too scary they also have salon’s in London for  the perfect bright colour or pale pastel.

For darker hair (and light hair) Fudge Chalk is available from Superdrugs for £5.99 and offers a great one-day option with no bleach!

    That colour really suits you! Is it permanent? I think having it just at the ends make it pop that bit more, purely because it is so different. I absolutely love it, definitely think I'll be investing in some (even though my hair isn't bleached either). xo

    I've been wanting to try hair chalk for so long now but I'm just so scared it's gonna get everywhere. If it really does get easily sealed in with hairspray though I might have to get over my fears and give it a go. Looks gorgeous on you!

    Think I'll try out the chalks, my hair's so dark that I think they're probably my best bet in getting some colour.
