Something that drives me nuts is when people complain about "quickly-fading" dyes, but go to absolutely no effort to maintain it. I can legitimately warn you that their Blue Velvet does fade quite quickly into purple/violet/lilac when not maintained well. Their Electric Blue fades purple as well, but lasts much longer than their Blue Velvet. The first time I put my blend of the two dyes into my hair together, [which was bleached to platinum before dying, mind you] I treated it poorly with hot water and sulfate hair products ['Bed Head: Control Freak,' to be exact] as an experiment to just see how fast it would fade. After one wash, it was Easter Purple. With this said, BE CAREFUL HOW YOU USE IT. Do not judge this dye poorly simply because you do not know how to maintain the color. Making any kind of hair dye last takes a lot of hard-work, research and effort, especially for unnatural colors, and because of it's extremely-unnatural chemical formula, Blue is most definitely one of the most difficult to upkeep. Know what you're getting into before dying it, or pastel colors will prevail.
Nonetheless, this is a great brand, has a high reputation as one of the most successful for unnatural colors, and I'm happy with it. If you're going to use it, then make sure to implement the recommendations I stated above, or it won't last. Otherwise, the color is vivid and long-lasting as ever. Give it a go. Highly recommended.
Five dyes. And I like to slather it on thick. Keep in mind. These dyes WILL NOT work on natural hair. It will go on, but wash off after one or two washes. But don't go too crazy with the bleach or your hair won't take any dye. I didn't even have to do mine very very light and it took well. Love it lots. Definitely will buy again and excited to try new colours. It runs when wet. But that's it. Wash in cold and use colour safe shampoo. Booya. Perfect. I've added photos of the fresh dye and the fade. I thought it was epic. And I only have to dye it when I kiss the purple. The pink lasts forever.
The amount you get is decent, the length of my hair is a couple inches past my shoulders and one bottle barely covered it all so if you hair is thick or long, you might wanna get 2 bottles just in case.
This is a stain so you do need to pre-lighten your hair first, it does not have to all be even, my hair was yellow with streaks of copper and light, light brown after I bleached it and it looks fine after dyeing, I think it looks more intereating in fact because of the different shades in it. A trick to lessen bleaching damage is to bleach on top of coconut oil, let your hair soak up the oil for about an hour or two then apply the bleach on top and follow the standard time then wash it out with only shampoo and dye right after it dries, your hair holds dye better when it's more porous so it'll stay longer.
The seller is good as well, it came in 4 days in a box, the products itself was wrapped in bubble wrap which is something I appreciate.
I got Blue Velvet and you can see the color in the pictures, the pictures themselves are from 5 weeks ago and 4 days ago and the color is still going strong.
