Purple Haze

Howdy!! In a couple of previous posts, i mentioned that i wanted to dye my hair a purple/berry colour.. i am always playing around with my hair and changing the colour and testing out new products.  I thought i would try the live colour XXL in colour Mystic Violet.

To begin here is a before and after photo!


i’m not that happy…

I even had pre bleached ends and the colour hardly showed up! grrrr!! All that mess and hardly any outcome!

All of that effort and i have to catch the light so that the colour can be seen!  On the contrary the instructions and prep for everything is easy, no fuss, only thing is, like with all hair dye is, it is MESSY!

With it being such a deep purple colour it was really messy, bright and obvious.  My mum wasn’t pleased when she saw the bathroom! Oops!!! Like seriously look at the mess! 😦


Apart from the mess and the turn out of the colour…i do kind of like it!  I just wish it was more vivid in colour.


It is such a shame that you can’t see the colour without the light shining through my hair because it really is a nice shade of purple.

I tried to find the light and take a snap all day so you could see the full effect of the colour…

Ahh well better luck next time, hey!!

Thanks for stopping by…

      Ahh have you. I think a purple hue would suit you! I love your hairstyle! Nope, I’ve never even heard of it lol, I just did a Google job on it! Looks pretty effective I may try it. Just found it on Amazon for £9 so not too bad! Thankya Xo

    As you’ve said, it’s a pity the colour doesn’t show at all times without light behind it because it’s such a deep, luxurious shade – it really suits you! 🙂
