How to get iridescent hair

I'd probably describe my hair as kind of a disaster most of the time. It took me a long time to get it to the white blonde that it is now, a terrible tale of hardship and split ends that I've told here. My goal was to be able to have a base where I could add pastel colours, which tend to be less fuss than harsh primary colours such as red and blue.

As I'm sure you know, I'm something of a fan of holographic and iridescent objects, sort of like a hipster magpie (do NOT leave any luminous, colour changing artefacts around me). Though I've always been told that a successful hair dye session results in your hair being all the same colour, I've actually found that I quite like the slightly messy, varying colours look.

I've found that if I combine both of my colour shampoos, it gives my hair an interesting effect, one that makes the colour slightly change at different angles. You can see here that I have white, silver, pink and purple in my hair (as well as some yucky dirty blonde as a result of my own terrible bleaching jobs).

For this I use the Fudge Violet toning shampoo, which is hands down the best purple shampoo I've ever used. It's a lot more intense than some of the other purple toning products, which works for me as I often have very stubborn yellow tones in my hair. What's even better is that you can buy huge bottles of the stuff, I get mine off of Amazon (link above).

My other miracle product is Bleach Rose Pink shampoo, which as far as I know is the only pink shampoo on the market. This stuff is like gold dust to me (well, pink dust), it gives my hair a pastel tone which washes out super easily, so it's commitment free. I also use the conditioner (although I haven't had quite as much luck with this) on my ends.

Because my hair is already quite a few different tones of blonde, achieving iridescent hair was pretty easy for me. If you want to give the look a go you'll need white blonde hair, using a purple toner. When I'm washing my hair I combine the pink and purple shampoo together and leave on for about 5 minutes - it always works beautifully!
