When you’re considering going pastel you want to start with a lighter base. This might be an all over platinum blonde, a light ombre that will then be an ombre pink or a mid-blonde giving you a darker pink all over.
You can opt for a colouring shampoo or wash-in wash-out colour like evo’s Fabuloso in Pastel Pink or Brite Organix Pink Shampoo (that you can grab on your next Woolies run!) to give you a non-comital flirt with the pastel trend.
For a weekend pink fix try a hair chalk. Fudge’s URBAN in Festival Pink can be applied to dry hair and set with hairspray for a fun festive look. Wash it out for work on Monday and no one will be the wiser! For a more pastel shade mix the Festival Pink dome with their Iced White dome!
For those wanting to rock those pink locks for longer go for a dye like Fudge’s Paintbox in Pink Flamingo. It is ammonia and peroxide free meaning it won’t cause any more damage to your hair, easy to apply and lasts 3-30 washes fading out to a gorgeous champagne colour.
Top Tips to Maintain The Pink
- Dry shampoo is your new best friend. Washing those locks will cause your pink to fade so skip a wash when you can by using a great dry shampoo.
- Use a pink shampoo. A pink shampoo can be a great way to keep the pink up between dyes!
- If you’re not into the peachy tone that your hair will fade into, add a good blonde toner to your washing routine to banish the yellow.
- Keep it cool! Try and wash those locks in cooler water. This will not only make the colour last longer but also make it shinier to boot! Ditch the hair tools where you can too to get the most out of your pastel shade!
