No Commitment Hair Color!
So, if you're like me, you are afraid to commit to a permanent hair color.
The thought of it possibly damaging my hair, or worse, breaking my hair right off, is something I think about from time to time. But I so badly envision myself with gorgeous purple ombre locs...just how #DOPE would that be?!
While I do plan on bringing this vision into reality in the future (right before I cut off my locs) I am discovering ways to make it happen safely and easily in the present.
I researched like crazy for a temporary hair color that fulfills four criteria:
- Highly pigmented
- Super affordable (ain't nobody got money to waste!)
- Minimal color transfer and
- Good reviews on YouTube and beyond
After hours of searching, I came across BeesOHoney on YouTube .
She reviewed the Jerome Russel Temporary Hair Sprays and I was instantly sold. What was also great about it is that it's affordable and had pretty decent reviews online. So, I went to my local drugstore and purchased the last two Panther Purple hair sprays on the shelves!
Here are the STATS:
- Spray On Hair Color
- 3.5 oz
- Wash out
Some additional things to take note of is that it is NOT recommended that you spray on wet or damaged hair. The hair spray is also extremely flammable so don't do anything near open flames or flames in general.
So I when I initially tried this product, I noticed instantly the color on my locs, When you first spray it on, the color will transfer on to your hands and such so I recommend using a protective barriers such as gloves or wax paper if you want to color select areas of your hair. when the spray dries however, there is minimal transfer. I haven't noticed any transfer on my clothes because I tend to were darker colors in general but if you are concerned about this, then just wear darker colored clothing or test out the color transfer on a paper towel before wearing a lighter colored shirt.
You get a good amount of product for sure. I was able to color my locs twice with one spray can. Considering how long my locs are now, I'd call that a humongous success!
The price is definitely within my price range; More affordable than the Kevin Murphy Color bugs which wouldn't even be enough for the amount of area I want to cover. It was also easy to find. I found it at my local Walgreens. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they have it in stock so they can pull it for you.
When I was ready to wash this bad boy out, it gave me no problems at all.
Below are some photos on how the color looks over time. The color gradually fades with each passing day but still looks natural.
All in all, this products works wonders and if you were interested in switching up your look using this color hair spray, I'd say, what do you have to lose?
