RAINBOW HAIR! (image heavy!)

So after coming here for some help I've finally dyed my hair rainbow colours! There was a request to see how I did it so here goes πŸ™‚

I had a little trouble bleaching it as I've been dying it blue for the last 6 months and it didnt want to budge so I bleached it twice. It came out a beautiful pastel blue.

My hair dresser then, going by a picture i found on flickr, sectioned my hair out like a sausgey pie chart!

Then she dyed each section starting with red at the base and then on to orange, yellow, green etc in a clockwise direction. Every time she finished dying a piece she covered it in cling film (a method i think i picked up from here as I've been dying my hair blue, wrapping it in cling film then going to sleep with it like that!) so i ended up looking like I belonged on a deli counter with my multicoloured sausage sections covered in cling film!

She put the dye in about 5:30pm and wrapped the whole lot in cling film twice more to keep everything in place. Then I put a shower cap on it and left it in whilst I slept and washed it out the next morning about 9:30am in a cold shower (brrr) To my surprise and great joy the colours didnt run, although my hair is royally f****d now. Nice and dry >_< I dont care though!

The dyes I used incase anyone wants them are all Special Effects apart from the yellow and purple, as my friend helped me buy them as he had his hair done at the same time.

-Red = Special Effects Cherry Bomb
-Orange = SFX Cherry Bomb + Manic Panic Electric Banana
-Yellow = Manic Panic Electric Banana
-Green = SFX Iguana Green
-Blue = SFX Fishbowl
-Purple = Directions Plum
-Pink = SFX Atomic Pink + Virgin Rose

I've had SUCH a positive response from everyone I've met. Customers at work have delighted in seeing it and intrigued as to how I've done it. I washed it for the first time since dying it today and the colours are still SUPER vibrant and didnt bleed! Ive spent the evening plaiting it and getting carried away with playing around mixing the colours, so here are a few photos of the finished result!

There's a whole load more on my facebook >_<
