I haven’t had rainbow hair in a while.
I bleached it once for 90 minutes and then again in three sections, the shortest section was 30 minutes and the longest 80 minutes.
The ombre effect didn’t really come out. I suspect the first bleaching needed to have been part of the gradient as well.
The bleach I did myself, but I had Holly J.’s help with the hair coloring. It didn’t look like much at first (wet)
But dry it looked pretty nice.
Joico Vero K-PAK Color Hair Color – Red 1 9.79
+ orange, yellow, peacock green, cobalt blue, amethyst purple (yes that adds up to a lot >__>). It was from sleekhair.com
(shipping took about a week).
I chose that after reading the reviews on this site
I was a little underwhelmed with the intensity of the colors (they’re not super BRIGHT), but they’re very nice colors (they look very … soft and natural in the sunlight). I choise Joico after reading the reviews on this site: http://fashionista.com/2014/10/rainbow-hair-dye
The hair bleach I got locally, from Sally Hansen’s Beauty Supply store near Target in Somerville / Union Square. It probably cost me around $25.
The hair looks really nice with a waterfall braid

Here’s how my hair looked after two days in french braids. So fluffy! Haha.
