I have just uploaded a new video tutorial on how I get pastel pink/purple hair. I use the La Riche Directions hair dyes, which are semi permanent and dilute a small amount with white conditioner. It is quite bright at first but fades in just one wash. I love the colour that it comes out and I love having a new shade every time I wash it.
Disclaimer: I am not a hairdresser/professional, this is just how I dye my hair. If you are unsure then do seek professional advice first! Please do make sure you have a parents permission if you are under 18 and do a patch skin test a few days before if this is the first time you have used Directions hair dye.It is definitely best that it comes out too bright rather than too light as you can always wash it again the next day so that it fades. I done this process the week before and it barely showed up as I didn't use enough dye, which is why my hair is a tiny bit pink beforehand in this tutorial.
I did also forget to say in the video that I left the dye on for about 25 minutes however you can leave it on for any amount of time, upto about 45 minutes at the most. You will be able to see the colour change on your hair but it you are unsure, wash off the dye from a small strand and see if you are happy with the colour.
As for how long it lasts well it all depends on your hair and how often you wash it. I filmed this a couple of weeks ago and it is nearly all faded out now. My hair does take dye very easily and I was it about twice a week. It is currently a very light baby pink/lilac hair which is almost white. Another great thing is that this kind of acts as a toner so once it is all faded out you will be left with white blonde hair rather than yellow blonde.

Lots of love
P.S. What do you think of the pink hair?
