Dip Dying my Hair Pink with Bleach Rose

I've been flirting with the idea for a while of doing a beauty feature on this blog, despite knowing really nothing at all about beauty products except for how to order them on a worryingly regular basis. However, the temptation to start a feature called 'Bel's Beauty Bits' is strong.

I'd actually ordered a whole load of products from the 'Bleach London' line a while back. For those of you who aren't in the loop or down with the kids, Bleach London is an achingly cool salon in Dalston (where all the hip hop happening kids live) who became well known for their lust worthy unnatural hair colourings, which unsurprisingly grabbed my attention. When they released a selection of hair dyes and other products in Boots, I was the first one scratching frantically at the doors, demanding an array of impractical hair colours in super trendy packaging. It's only now that I finally got round to properly 'sorting out' (bleaching the living daylights out of) my hair and finally getting in on the dip dye trend (which I realise is now 'soooo 2012' but hell who cares) and I thought I would share a little review and the results with you!

Now as far as semi permanent guides go, I can't pretend that I notice an inordinate amount of difference between them, so in many ways it can come down to the design, and even the naming of the dye. I love the way Bleach named their dyes (awkward peach being a personal favourite) and I thought that the bottle for Bleach Rose looked so gorgeous that it's actually been sitting pride of place on my dressing table for a while. The dye itself was easy to apply, and seeing as I was only doing the ends of my hair, I just applied it with my hands, which surprisingly worked brilliantly and I didn't miss any bits (I usually miss out a whole chunk of my hair without realising when I'm doing it alone).

The before and after! Peculiarly enough I appear to have developed a tan overnight as well, although it might just be the bronzer I use. 

Part of me hopes that putting the pink tones in my hair might help dull the green tones in my bleached hair (residue from a particularly stubborn blue), but for now I absolutely adore the pink and am pleasantly surprised/shocked by how well the dying process went.

You can buy Bleach London dyes in LOADS OF COLOURS at large Boots stores and online. A similar review of their hair styling products is to come.

  1. The pink looks great on you! I tried to go purple recently but because I had (stupidly) dyed my hair with henna perviously, it wouldn't stay.

  2. I think 'Bel's beauty bits' should definitely become a thing, I think that is a great idea!
    I've recently bought Body Shop's hair chalks which I'm humming and hah-ing about trying haha
    You really suit the pink though, looks amazing!

  3. You did so amazing to get from blue to light! Looks great ,feel like dying my hair brown with all the new bright dyes that are easy to get hold of though! So sad, just like when I was a tween and stopped listening to a band that got too popular.

  4. Awww wow this looks amazing! I'd love my hair to be like this but the black won't budge xxx

  5. Love Love Love your style! Amazing.
