Have you ever heard of Directions? If you like dying your hair some crazy colour but only temporary, this is exactly what you need.
Directions is a British brand of Hair Toners with a strict ‘no animal testing’ policy🇬🇧 All colourations are semi-permanent and wash out within one week.
To start off, I bleached my hair with Directions 1 year ago. I used peroxide Vol 40 to bleach my hair because I’ve had a darker hair colour. Here’s a link to show you your recommended strenght of peroxide. Afterwards I tried some of their Toners like Pastel Pink,
Lavender, Lilac and Silver. My favourite colour always remained the Lavender Toner. It is a mixture of pink and purple. However, Lavender is a warmer shade and I prefer these to the cold ones.
If you haven’t got light hair it is possible that the colouration doesn’t have that much of an effect. In that case, I strongly recommend bleaching your hair at least once (be aware of the damage this causes to your hair though…).
I’ve made a disappointing experience with the Silver Toner. After I had bleached my hair once, I tried the Silver Toner so that my ombre’d get a touch of grey. But my hair wasn’t lightened enough so there hasn’t been any difference before and after the colouration.
However I enjoy their products very much!
Here are some further variations.
