I did a bleach bath on my not budging cc sky blye hair and it did lift to a very light blue. I wanted pink and since I had a mix of blue, white and light yellow I decided to put directions carnation pink over it, hoping for some nice pink and purple colours. Well, it worked. :)

The pink is really not what I expected from seeing gallery pictures, it's so bright and neon! I don't mind though, because I loooove the end result.

Here's my before hair :



And this is the result :



The roots are a bit peachy, but I don't mind.

Wow that looks lovely! Carnation was nowhere near that bright on my hair!

Thank you both!

I was really surprised at the bright magenta like colour. It did look neon in the tub, but sometimes intensity of the dye is  different in the dye and on the hair. I bought this tub off beeunique, so it's legit. Maybe directions changed the formula for carnation pink as well?

Carnation Pink has always turned almost neon pink on my hair and then faded to a bubblegum pink and then eventually a pastel pink. I think it depends on the hair, some hair really soaks up the dye.

This looks awesome on you, I love it.

So beautiful!
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!

Thank you all!

And thank you exoskeletal for that info! I'm not alone then, good to know.

It's fading beautifully, though! Here's two pics from today. Forgive the unruly hair, it's windy outside!





You can see the purple bits in the last picture. It's the first time I've liked an all-over pink on me, probably because of the purply bits though.

I love the colour you did originally, but I really, really dig the fade!  It's so cool, so soft, the colours just blend together really nicely. :)
Hair reminds you just how much "patience is a virtue"...

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