Background and Important Information

When I used this product, it was the first time that I had dyed my hair at home. All of my previous experiences had been in a salon.

I bought one tube of the colourant off Amazon for £12, and it arrived very quickly. I was expecting a bright colour, and prior to applying this dye to my hair, I had lightened my hair at home using the Schwarzkopf Perfect Mousse Foam Lightener 1200 [my review of which can be found here].

Below are photographs of my light hair before I applied the dye, in both natural and artificial lighting for comparison.

Applying the Dye

  • I applied this dye to clean, towel-dried hair.
  • When applying the dye, I did not have a mixing bowl and tint brush that I could use, so I instead I used my own gloved hands and had the assistance of a friend to help me get any bits that I missed.
  • Once all of the dye was applied I combed my hair through with a wide-toothed comb thoroughly until I felt that my hair was evenly covered.
  • I then left it to process under a shower cap for 30 mins.
  • I used luke-warm water to rinse my hair until it was running clear, I then conditioned and rinsed my hair, and let it dry naturally

The application process for this dye was very easy, and the whole bottle covered my whole head. However, if your hair is the same length as mine or longer, I would recommend getting 2 bottles just to be on the safe side.

This dye stains. I used an old and dark towel so I was not too worried about staining it, but it can be difficult to get off the scalp and forehead. I would definitely recommend wearing gloves when handling this dye.

Once I had rinsed the dye out, my hair felt very soft and well conditioned. I still applied some conditioner though, as I wanted to be better safe than sorry.

Below is a photograph of my hair after it had completely dried.

Important Information to Note

When I woke up the next morning, I noticed that some of the pink colour had 'bled' onto my pillow and around the neckline of my pyjamas. However, this came out easily in the wash at 40C, and there was no permanent staining on either the bed sheets or clothes.

I had intended for this dye to last only a short amount of time, so I did not top it up as it faded. Instead, I let it gradually wash out. Below are two photographs—the first is 2 weeks after dyeing it and the second is 5 weeks after dyeing it.

Conclusion

My experience with this dye was very positive. It was easy to use and apply, and I suffered no adverse reaction from it. It was easy to wash out any dye that bled from my hair onto my sheets and pyjamas.

I was very surprised at how bright the colour turned out, especially since it looked a lot darker in the bottle, but I loved the vivid colour and it made me feel a lot more confident.

The price of this dye was £12 which is very cheap when compared to getting it dyed at a salon.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend this dye, and I fully intend to use Fudge Paintbox again in the future to dye my hair at home.
