Rainbows rock. Fact.
« on: 03 May 14 / 01:16 PM »
Hi all. Thought I'd share my hair ! Got loads of inspiration from this site so thought it about time I registered!
I've been rainbow for about a year now and can't honestly see me doing anything else as I just love it!  :D

very nice, I love the yellow! Which dyes did you use?

Thanks! My first rainbow was all SFX apart from the yellow which is always Manic Panic Electric banana. As the availability is so intermittent with SFX I've had to improvise. Currently on my hair is
Manic Panic Electric Banana
Stargazer Magenta
Adore Violet Gem
Manic Panic Cleo Rose
Manic Panic amplified bad boy blue
Manic panic amplified atomic turquoise
SFX napalm orange
SFX nuclear red or manic panic amplified pillar box red.

This photo was taken today after having it redone yesterday so it's at its most vibrant. I'll post a pic each week to show the fade until I have it redone if you like?

This looks awesome! I love everything about it, the cut and colors/placement compliment each other so well :)
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!

Even though I'm not an alternative colour, I really love this.

I'll post a pic each week to show the fade until I have it redone if you like?

I'd love to see that!  I do wonder what it's like to maintain, if you have to bleach roots, then separate the hair into colour chunks to re-dye it, and how you get it so even and perfect again.  And if you ever feel like you want to switch colours around, lol.  It must take a lot of patience to keep up, but it's so cool!

Oh yeah, so these two men walk into a bar: you think one of them would have ducked. ::)

Thanks all. It's not too bad to maintain. Thankfully I have a hairdresser friend that does it for me. I wouldn't even attempt it myself.
I probably have a re-colour every 4-5 weeks where we just put the colours on. Then 4-5 weeks later I have my roots done and then the colours put on after. We tend to put the same colours in the same places unless one has particularly faded then we might change it up.

SO pretty, wow. I wish I had someone to help me place colour, I wouldn't be able to do this on my own I think. It's gorgeous and I'm curious to how it fades!

@RainbowBrite, I saw your Week 1 photo, and it is indeed gone - I wonder what happened!

I look forward to your posting it again and to see this week's as well :)

Morning all

Here's Week 1 again.

This is with 2 washes using L'oreal Everpure S&C. Dried on a medium heat with a hair dryer. I use Babyliss new big hair rotating brush instead of straighteners to style it.
In between washes I spritz unruly sections with water and use the rotating brush to style it.

Gorgeous! I so wish I had the patience to go rainbow.
I like cemeteries and skulls. And cats.  And Lego. And Doctor Who, TWD, Star Wars, Penny Dreadful, Death Cafe's...

I just see a tiny bit of fading now, but it still looks amazing - you can't really tell it's faded unless you see the previous weeks' pictures.  Looks like the shampoo you're using is really preserving the colour.  And best yet, it seems to be fading (if you can call it that!) very evenly all around.

I'm enjoying these pictures, thanks for posting them!

Morning peeps

Here is Week 3

Same styling and washing as previous weeks but as u can see there's more fade this week. I've been out and about a lot as I'm on holiday from work and it's been very sunny which has probably contributed to the fade - especially the ends of the pink.
Xx

My posts seem to have disappeared again! Here is Week 4 fade. Swapped to using Dove shampoo as color run out seems to have stopped. Washed 4 times that week and been out on the sun so fade really starting to show.

I actually really like the faded colours :) I'm a fan of pale rainbows.

I've loved it every week you've posted... it's such an amazing combination.  I think I like it more vivid the best, but the lighter, pastel rainbow is gorgeous too.

Thanks so much for keeping up posting your photos... do keep them coming!
