Quarantine 2020 | I died my hair pink.

Alright– so pink hair is all the rage so I did the deed, I colored my hair pink…but was it worth it? ummmm ABSOLUTELY. Would I do it again?? Uh, ya TOMORROW.

Quarantine 2020 was becoming a bit of a #snooze…so what better way to spice it up than by {temporarily} coloring your hair pink??? Key word: temporarily.

I am naturally pretty light, but haven’t had my hair highlighted in about 8 months (hi, this is a judge-free zone) so currently I have a lot of natural grow out- this tint only takes to colored BLONDE hair. I am not the kind of person who goes out on a whim at any given opportunity and is like HeYyY I’m GoNnA DiE mY hAiR tHe CoLoR oF tHe RaInBoW but I couldn’t resist this beautiful dusty rose Kristin Ess Temporary Rose Gold Hair Tint.

The Process:

  1. Get in the shower.
  2. Shampoo your hair and rinse. I use TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Volume Shampoo.
  3. If your hair is fine and tangled like mine, brush it out so it’s tangle-free for a more even application then re-wet with shower head. The wetter the hair, the less permanent and bright the color is.
  4. Spray Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint Spray on your sopping wet hair or have your partner/husband do it for a more thorough application like I did {Thxx Ty ;)}.
  5. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes. This depends on how pink you want it- I wanted more of a subtle dusty pink so I applied, then let it set for about 2/2:30.
  6. Rinse out the pink, condition, dry off and blow dry your hair.
  7. NOTE: don’t be paranoid that it would be too bright/permanent like I was. This color washes out at about 3 washes max, so don’t be afraid to let it sit on your hair and play with the brightness.
  8. ANOTHER NOTE: yes, the pink overspray does wash off of marble countertops, white fluffy rugs and white tank tops- been there, done that. Gotchu girl 😉

The Post-Pink Process:

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

All in all, let your hair down {literally} and do the damn thing. Pink hair is fun and it’s temporary. brb hoarding cans of Kristin Ess Tint- can’t WAIT to do it again.
