Colour Freedom Hair dye

I didn't plan on going into Superdrug as I normally go into Boots or Wilkos for beauty products but I was going past Game and thought I may as well have a look and see if they had any Semi permanent hair dyes and pick up my hair bleach at the same time. I was pleasantly surprised to find Colour Freedom dyes on offer for £3.47 down from £6.99. I was originally going to buy my directions dye from my local piercing shop which is £5 each for 88ml where as colour freedoms dyes are 180ml for £6.99 and come in a squirt bottle.

I chose the shades Mystic purple and Pink Pizazz as I wanted purple hair that faded to pink, it's been one of my favourite colours I've had in my hair for ages and thought a change would be nice. Along with the hair dyes I also purchased their deep conditioner which you mix with the dye to make it as light or dark as you want without using too much dye, you can do this with any white conditioner but I wanted to give their one a go and see how nourished my hair felt after. I have to say, I'm slightly disappointed with these dyes. Yes they are semi permanent but I hoped they would last better than they did. The purple stained my hair horribly, it eventually went a pinky shade that I couldn't get out of my hair, but the pink dye washed out really easily and after one wash. I even washed my hair with cold water in the hopes that the colour would stay longer but it never, luckily there is a lot of dye in both bottles so I could top up the colour easily. I decided to stop using the purple dye as I didn't like how it stained my hair, but I'm currently still using the pink one because it tones my hair nicely. The conditioner is very watery and made my hair very very greasy, with one squirt of the bottle loads came pouring out and it didn't help the colour stick to my hair as well so I ended up using my normal everyday white conditioner which is a lot cheaper and works much better. I tried out the pink and purple together first in a light colour but it faded too fast so I made them darker, here are a few pictures of how both dyes looked in my hair and how they faded:

I bleached it blonde the other week and it had a few greenish colours in, I was going to use a purple toner over it but decided against it and put the pink dye over it instead, I mixed it with conditioner so it was a pastel colour then left it on my hair for a few hours, I washed it off with a normal shampoo and then my purple shampoo and ended up with all the green bits gone and an ash blonde colour, which I kept for a week or so, My hair is currently pastel pink with hints of blonde through it, I will be sticking to the pink dye until it runs as because it's perfect for switching from pink to blonde and vice versa. 

Sorry for all the selfies!
