Usually, I don't dye my hair. Why? Honestly, because I cannot be bothered with the hassle of having to touch it up every 2 weeks to a month. And also because I think it damages the hair. Since my hair is already dry and I'm in a constant battle on how to properly moisturize it, I don't need another factor helping me ruin it all. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dying your hair, I think it is amazing if you can maintain it and have healthy hair at the same time. I just always felt it wasn't for me.
Summer last year, I was editing an image for instagram and one of the overlays made it look like I had burgundy hair. This got me excited and I remembered when I dyed a section of my hair burgundy in high school. I asked what people thought and they said it looks amazing. I thought about it a bit and then put it at the back of my mind as I had other things to worry about. Later last year, I was given the opportunity to try out the hairchalk.co temporary hair chalks and I dyed my hair aqua. Be sure to check out my review and pictures. This was so exciting for me because I was in love with the crazy colour hair trend, but wasn't sure I was brave enough to dye it more permanently. This is when the thought to play safe but still dye my hair occurred.
Since I didn't want a semi-permanent hair dye, I did a bit of research on the best temporary dyes available. From all the ones I found, the one I had the easiest access to was Crazy Color. So I went out to hairstores and got a bottle of the Crazy Color in Burgundy. A few tries later, I finally know the best way to use it for my hair and voila. I started off using it only on my relaxed ends and afterwards decided to do my whole hair.
Personally, I think it looks amazing and I am so in love with it. I can redye my hair whenever I feel the colour is fading or touch up every week by adding it to my deep conditioner. What I like most is that is washes off by slowly fading away. This helps me avoid having to dye my hair, and I can stick to doing it whenever I want. I tried to take a picture, but it's quite difficult to see indoors as I applied the dye over dark hair without bleaching it first. So indoors, it looks quite subtle, but in the sunlight you can see the burgundy in all its glory.
