This is Adore African Violet diluted 1:1 with conditioner and left overnight.
My base was pale yellow with oddly greyish roots after bleaching & toning.
I know it's a blue-based purple but it's come out more blue than I expected! Little bit darker than I expected as well. I'm liking it though, I have inky blurple hair for the first time ever 8) in all honesty I'd prefer a slightly warmer "cadbury" purple so when top-up time comes around I might try to mix something up.
I'm also super happy to NOT have dye stains on my ears and neck for once! I wonder if that's to do with diluting it with conditioner, or the moisturiser I used as a barrier.
What a lovely colour! It's sort of a dark denim Indigo kind of colour!
The barrier certainly will have helped with stopping staining in your skin.
That's really nice! Very blue indeed, but it's a lovely colour none the less!
I always get my skin stained, but my hair is longer so it hides my neck and ears, haha. And it usually washes off within a couple showers anyway. Props for not getting stained skin though! I'm just too lazy to do that extra step. 😛
Also wanted to say I looooove the placing of that one round piercing between the lobe and the cartilage, at the end of the crease! I have one around there somewhere, but it doesn't look at precisely placed as this one. 🙂
I always use moisturiser to try to prevent the stains, this is just the first time it's worked! Normally I'm there scrubbing at it with jojoba oil.
This time I used vaseline "essential moisture" lotion with oat extract (not petroleum jelly, I hate that stuff) which I stumbled upon while working offshore. I asked a medic for barrier cream to limit the rash I get from drysuit seals and he gave me this stuff. It smells nice and my skin loves it. Win win win.
Gorgeous colour! I love adore dyes and they never seem to stain half as much as other brands 🙂
Thank you 🙂
I don't enjoy applying Adore dye, it's a bit too liquid/drippy for my liking but I've had no rub-off from it at all! Whereas every time I've used Directions it's rubbed off onto EVERYTHING.
Yeah I get that with Adore too. It's a pain in the bum to apply but the no rub-off is more than worth it! i'm reluctant to use any other brand now.
And I love this colour!
