Q: hi, i recently used your perfectly purple semi permanent dye mixed with the white base to create pastel. i have never bleached, dyed or damaged my hair and i have thick black hair. i left it on for about 2 hours and then washed it off. however, the colour washed right off and my hair just stayed black. what should i do? i want to try the pastel colours.

Hi

Thank you for your email. Pastels can be a tricky shade as what it looks like in the bowl can be very different on the hair which is why we recommend a strand test.

All semi permanent colours work best on light blonde or bleached hair.

If you have light coloured hair already the best way to make sure you create the colour you want is to gradually mix your colour in a bowl until you get the right shade. Test on a piece of white paper to check the colour then apply to a stand of your hair to test, before a full application.

If you have darker coloured hair you can achieve temporary pastel colours buy using our liquid hair chalk. It is currently available as a special at larger Woolworths stores. Apply a layer of white liquid chalk then apply the purple over the top to create the pastel colour. 

Happy colouring
