Last night Hinge Came round, for our normal mid-week chat, and Sauna.
Before she got here I did a bit of chemistry:
As you can see, I had made up a blue paste, that I assumed should have been white and or clear; it seems to also be very goopy, I assume if I do this again I will work out a better method of making this stuff than following the instructions…
After application of said Gloop, the first set of waiting starts; Manic Panic give some very wide timings for this part, as in somewhere between 20 mins and 90 mins; all of which could have applied to parts of my hair, so based on feedback about the blue; I went for much much closer to 90 than I would have done normally.
As you can see, It seems to have stripped most of the colour out of my hair; both natural, and my first attempt.
With the help of this lovely young lady,
We then applied the Manic Panic Shocking Blue, and headed for the Sauna, which given I was advised to leave it in for longer than it says (a lot longer) and apply some heat with a hair dryer, (not owning a hairdryer may be an error).
Post Sauna, and quick wash it looked like this;
and this is what it looks like after drying overnight
I brushed a little conditioner in, because I had fluffy hair, so this is what it looked like before work this morning; its still a little patchy; but I am sure with a bit of work I can make it look better.
