A month ago, I shared photos of and my experience coloring my hair to get a “sunset” effect painted onto my hair (see this post for more details). I’ll be going in for a color touch-up shortly before Christmas, less because I feel I need one and more because my parents will be visiting, so I want them to see the pretty effect at its highest point.
I know a few readers were curious about how well the dyes were going to hold up after washing, so I thought I’d take some photos and see how everything was looking after four weeks (four washes). My stylist wasn’t too worried about the purple and pink tones fading much (and previously, I had a lot of the magenta dye in my hair, which hadn’t faded much, if at all, over two months), but there was concern that the magenta dye would overwhelm the lighter orange/rose gold hues.
I think the latter has happened to some degree, though I can still see some more orange-y pieces coming through in places, but they were done more underneath and away from my face and have been harder to display (I’d definitely consider doing a bit more of the lighter orange/rose gold color throughout–I specifically asked to go easy on it the first go-round). I’m still just as happy with it, and I don’t mind that it’s a little pinker/less warm at this point myself.
