5.0 out of 5 stars Something blue..., 12 May 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Crazy Color semi permanent hair dye in Capri Blue is a bright blue ready-mixed vegetable dye, that Renbow says lasts between 4 to 8 washes, and for the low price I thought that you can't really complain with that.

I didn't pay much attention to the guide on the bottle as my hair is really thick so 15 minutes developing time seemed totally wrong for me, so instead I applied the dye into my freshly washed and still damp hair with gloved hands, starting at the roots, and remembered that when I previously used a semi-permanent dye it advised placing a plastic cap over my head to lock in heat, to help the pigments develop. So I improvised and paced a carrier bag over my hair. I have thick hair so decided to leave the dye on my hair for an hour to let it really sink in [it's vegetable dye so you won't damage your hair], and I then rinsed my hair until water ran clear, but didn't use shampoo, conditioner, or any other products on my hair.

I also remember a magazine article where a hairstylist who works in TV said to leave your hair for 48 hours after being dyed, before washing it again. So that's something I always do now.

I ended up getting over a month's wear out of the colour - I washed my hair roughly a dozen times before the shade faded badly enough to need refreshing. Considering the low price of this dye I was delighted with how well it lasted.

I know, from having tried a La Riche Directions dye in the past, that vegetable hair colourants stain skin - I myself had a purple forehead [plus shoulders and boobs from using the shower to rinse the dye from my hair] for three days after application, no matter how much I scrubbed my skin. I was put of trying a similar dye again, but now that I've taken the plunge I can confirm that the Crazy Color dye doesn't stain as badly - it will wash straight off skin with warm water and soap.

My hair is a few inches past my shoulders and is thick/coarse, and I use 1 1/2 bottles per full-head application.
