Lavender, pastel pink hair tutorial

The easy way to Mermaid worthy hair

Step one: Get your roots done and then Choose your hairdye.
I’ve found mixing brighter colours works better and you get more for your money as you only need to use a little! I’m currently LOVING midnight blue directions and cyclamen crazy colour.
Step 2: Mix with conditioner
I use Lush conditioner as its thick and because you leave it on for a while it acts as a masque. Put a substantial amount of conditioner in a mixing bowl, add a little of the blue and a tiny bit of the pink until you have the colour you want, it should be similar to the colour above for a lavender colour.
Step 3: Apply
Apply all over your hair in sections and comb through, leave it on for 30 minutes. 
Step 4: Mix your pink for the dip dye.
With what hair dye you have left add another drop of the pink, mix & add more until it has a visible pink tone, remember you can always add more but you can’t take anyway!
Rinse the lavender out of your hair thoroughly and towel dry. 
Add the pink to the very ends and work up a couple of inches, make sure the ends are completely covered and rub in. Leave for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse out a few times to make sure there is no conditioner left.

And there you have it! Really easy and you can vary the amounts of dye you use to get your desired effect and remember if it is darker than you want just wash it and it’ll fade quick snap.
