Earlier this year I got the chance to test out the newest Loreal Colorista temporary hair color. I’ve been on a temporary hair color kick for the past two years and I was very excited to test out their Aqua shade.
The formula comes packaged in a squeeze tube and the package contains a handy brush, gloves and detailed instructions on how apply the product. I used an entire tube of the color and applied it meticulously all over my dry hair, leaving it on for about half an hours and then rinsing it out. The color caught really well on my hair leaving me with a lovely chameleon shade that looked like a rich green in sunlight and shifted to a cooler cool aqua indoors under fluorescent light. The only downside to this color was how hard it was to capture it on camera under my usual lighting.
The product left my hair very soft and the color lasted surprisingly long. I experienced most color loss during the first shampoos after which my hair turned to a pastel green which somehow felt right for spring. When I was ready to move on and return to blonder hair I simply mixed a good amount of Head & Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo and a tablespoon of baking soda, applied it to wet hair and left it on for about 5 minutes. This trick works really well at lifting temporary colours and after two or three shampoos I got most of it out, only the bleached, damaged tips still had a green tint to them, which eventually went away.
I had a lot of fun with this hair color and I am looking forward to trying a few more shades in the near future.
