Pink hair, don’t care.

Pink hair, don’t care.

As a blonde, I’ve had difficulty with “temporary” products becoming permanent nightmares. Fellow blondies, I’m sure you’ve experienced this as well. I love having spunky hair color, yet this doesn’t always go over well with new clients since my field is highly academic. Tattoos can be hidden- electric blue hair, not so much. I’d like to think the world is coming around to support more creative individuals; however, I like to play it safe as my professional reputation is important to me. 

After doing some late night internet searches and ordering products, I found it- the holy grail of temporary hair color. And it’s not even hair color, it’s conditioner. Davines Alchemic Conditioner is meant to brighten up and tone red heads, but it gives a wonderful, actually temporary, hue of pink to blondes. t lasts about 4-5 washes, and it gets lighter with every wash.

I am genuinely in love with this product and have become a pro at using it. Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, it’s worth it. Once you make the plunge, here is some advice that I wish I had the first few times. 

Tips for use: 

  • If you’re using it on your whole head, make sure it’s evenly distributed. This works similar to hair color, so you will notice if it’s blotchy.  
  • Same goes for attempting streaks or tips- make sure to use foil and blend well.  
  • It does stain. Be careful around clothing, and wash around your hairline to avoid pink skin. 
  • Use shampoo and regular conditioner before applying on damp hair; I have found that it doesn’t actually moisturize all that well.  
  • You can leave it on for as long or as little you want to attain the right shade. I keep it on for about 30 minutes to absorb the maximum brightness so that it will last longer. 
  • If you don’t like the way it looks, just wash your hair a few times that day until it comes out. No permanent damage!
