REVIEW: La Riche Directions Hair Dye

If you guys saw this post you will know I decided to put some Blue and Lavender through the ends of my hair for summer using the La Riche Directions Hair Dye. I thought I would write a review since it's now been a week and a half since I dyed my hair and I can tell you exactly what I think.



Just a quick round-up, I had bleached my hair before dying and it was a very orange toned blonde. The two dyes that I chose were Lavender, which is a gorgeous pinky-purple shade, and Neon Blue which is...neon blue. I left both dyes on for 30 minutes (the packaging says to leave it on for 20), but actually had to go over the lavender colour again as it didn't come out too well. The end result was this...


After one wash the colours had definitely faded and the blue dye had ran into the purple ends and made a mermaid green sort of colour which I didn't dislike but it did look a bit weird with my red toned roots. I actually went over the lavender yesterday and it didn't take very well despite leaving it on for an hour. The ends currently look like this.

 
The colours are nowhere near as bright as I wanted them so I think I will be bleaching and toning the ends again soon to get the look I really want. Luckily the dyes are primarily made from Vegetable Oils so won't do too much damage to my hair on top of the bleach. 

Overall I would not recommend using these dyes unless you have extremely pale blonde hair. The orange tones in my hair allowed the blue to stay a strong colour, but the lavender was completely gone after one wash. The dyes retail for around £5 but you can get them on eBay for around £3.
