Arctic Fox Virgin Pink

Leave a Comment
Hi all,
I'm so giddy about today's post because my hair just took a turn for the brightest and vivid color ever.
I had no intention of getting it so in yo face lol but after it was all done and left on my hair for 2 hours and 40 minutes, the results were out of this world.
Ok, so remember how I said in my last post, I was going to try a new hair dye by Arctic Fox?
Well, I went for it and got it on Amazon in the color Virgin Pink for $10.99.

It totally smells like grape candy no kidding and it's very pigmented. You can choose to dilute it with white conditioner or their Arctic Mist to make it a pastel or a diffrent pink.
I decided to take the strand test method for 30 minutes and the pre softening gray method for 15 minutes to achieve the first round of color preference. In the picture below, you will see that strand is more of a cooler soft pink which made me excited and my gray was grabbing the color as well.

Again, I'm new into these fantasy colors so I'm bound to make mistakes. When I was ready to do my whole head, I decided to leave the color way longer and Boom the pictures speak for themselves. I know the color will fade which will be nice if it fades to a beautiful toned down pink. But I'm super impressed with this product and how well it took my gray as well. So far I give Arctic Fox Virgin Pink 2 thumbs up :) and it did not stain my pillowcase. Yay!

Celeb Luxury Viral Colorwash

Leave a Comment
Hello everyone,
Today’s blog post is about a colorposit shampoo called Viral colorwash by Celeb Luxury. 
I ordered mine on Ebay for less because this shampoo retails for 35 bucks in salons and unfortunately it’s not available at Sallys :(

The color I got was in pastel light pink and it is very pigmented and has a citrusy scent.
As you all know from the previous post, I tried the Manic Panic in Cotton Candy Pink and though it looked vibrant and beautiful the first week, I began to notice it was fading much quicker than my Pravana pink so I wanted to try something different to halt the fading process as much as I could besides the dye in the conditioner method so I purchased the Viral Colorwash. It's pigmented, concentrated and it cleanses and colors your hair at the same time.

This shampoo deposits color on your hair while you are washing it and you determine how long you leave it on to reach the vibrancy you want or you can do quick washes after the other. My first attempt using it, I decided to try it on dry hair and leave it on for 20 to 30 min.
It looked great like an instant dye job and when a week later passed, I decided to use it as a shampoo and did a quick wash for 6 minutes and it worked really well. I will soon try 2 quick washes so it can grab even more. The only thing I did notice is that it does not cover gray or color dark parts of the hair but at least it covered my highlights and made them pink, not pastel but pink and I was totally fine with that. When using this product, I highly suggest after washing your hair to use a conditioner so it won’t dry out your locks. 

This 8.25 oz shampoo is an investment but it really does keep your hair color from fading the more you use it. 
So now there are two options to keep your color from fading, dye in conditioner method or Viral Colorwash while you shampoo your hair.

                                     The lighter dab swatch is Pravana pink mixed in with my conditioner.

These shots are my before with the manic panic in Cotton Candy Pink. You can already see the fade...

Using Viral Colorwash as a dye on dry hair for 20-30 minutes
The results

The roots are coming in LOL The next hair dye I will be trying is Arctic Fox Virgin Pink, hopefully it  will tone down my black roots and grab my white hair.

Here’s the Celeb Luxury website so you can read all about their product line and find the one that works for you.

Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink

Leave a Comment
There are so many fantasy hair color semi permanent dyes out there that it's so hard to choose especially since I'm a newbie into it. When I first got my hair colored, it was with Pravana Vivids Pink which is a great high quality dye but it is not as accessible as others that you can purchase at Sally's. After my initial color, I went to Salon Centric because I have a friend that is a hairdresser and she has access to the supplies but since I'm not, I went with her and I bought two tubes of Pravana Vivids Pink under her card.
All I have left is a bit of the second tube since I mixed it in with my conditioner which was great but then I would run out when I would have to recolor again. So, I renewed my membership with Sally's for 5 bucks for the year and I got a 50% off coupon and used it to buy my first jar of Manic Panic in Cotton Candy Pink without knowing if it would work or not. To my surprise, this dye worked great and I did not dilute it to make it pastel. I used it straight from the little tub it came in, saturated my whole head and the color took instantly, even most of my white hair in the front which was cool because that part is not bleached.
I left on the dye for 3 hours and rinsed it off with cool water and voila the shade of pink was vivid and beautiful and more cool pinky toned than the Pravana, which gave me a more lilac mauvey pink hue.
This dye did not make a mess, stain my pillowcase or clothing maybe because it was a lighter shade from the collection. It is also very pigmented but now I have to test it to see how long it will last on my highlighted locks.
In my previous post, I mentioned some tips that I use to keep the color from fading so hopefully it will work with this color as well.

I'm really excited with this new hair change. I'm having fun at 42!
Here are my before and after pictures using the manic panic in Cotton Candy Pink.
