Vermillion Red

A week ago I decided to spice up my red hair colour with some Directions dye. I used Vermillion Red on the top layer and Pillarbox red on the bottom layer, but I can't see any difference between the colours. Next time I'll stick to one colour all over. I really enjoy the deeper red I get from using temporary dyes over the henna, and it's not too much of a hassle to do either. It took about 1 hour or maybe a bit less to apply, and I left it on for around 2 hours. I know that you're supposed to leave it on for much longer, but I'm too impatient for that. I still think I got a great result. 

I've only washed once since I dyed, and I'm trying to stretch washes a bit in order to make the colour last longer. I usually wash every 3-4 days, but this time I went 7 days without washing.
I want to try Flame or Fire next time, and I'm also toying with the idea of using Cerise some day, because I love that colour.

Today, after washing and drying:
I made the ponytail by taking two sections of nape hair, putting them around the remaining hair and securing them on top with a flexi-8 in size XS.


  1. Oh! I have similar waves, but my are so dry and your`s lokks so soft...
