I got a little bored with the red hair so, I decided to go back blonde but as I was doing it myself and had long roots with only a light wash of bleach on them I decided to temporarily go purple while my hair relaxes from the bleach. Last time I lightened my hair i did it all so quickly and ended up with broken hair so, I wasn't going to repeat that mistake.
Anyway back to the dye, I had always wanted to try Parma Violets when I was blonde before but, it was always sold out and then it was recalled :( I have no idea why it was recalled as it was a beautiful colour with lots of different colour shades in it.
I opted for Violet Skies which I am assuming is the replacement of Parma Violets the shade in the bottle looks like a very dark purple but, don't be scared off this is not how it comes out.
When you put the colour into a mixing bowl it appears to be a pink toned purple and this is apparent in the finished look but very subtle.
The only issue I had with this product is that it didn't take to some of the light areas of my hair and obviously my roots, however, I think this may be partly my fault with not lightening it enough but, I have a very sensitive scalp and bleach can burn me quite quickly so, I had to take it off quite quick this time.
I really like the final colour, I think it really suits my skin tone and actually brings some colour to my face where as the red made me look quite pale. The price of £5.00 is perfect for all of us and I could have got away with using half the bottle but, I always use a bit more to ensure i get the product everywhere.
The brand on a whole is very affordable and I have had no bad experiences with any of their products which for lighter shades is now my go to brand. I would like to try Blullini, Awkward Peach and Sea Punk but, after stumbling across that's so yesterday's blog I want to try her mermaid hair which is linked, her hair is super amazing!
