DON'T USE COLOUR RAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its actually demi permanant.

it bleaches your hair and dyes over with temporary dye.

after i week i had a pale pinkish/orangy white colors.

and my shower is still pink from when i showered.

             I used colour rays, it's been two months and it barely faded. What color is your hair? Because it's made for people with darker hair.

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

I'm not sure if any of you would be interested in something that you have to get done at a salon, but if you are, read on.  I get this color called Elumen that is really great.  It comes in all different colors (which can even be mixed to make new ones) and is very gentle to your hair.  It is technically permanent, but here's the cool thing--you can remove it without damaging your hair!  No ammonia, no peroxide, etc.  There's a whole scientific thing behind it--negative and positive ionic stuff, blah blah blah... Anyway, I have had a bunch of different hair colors over the past few years--various shades of blonde, brown and red, plus black, blue and purple.  My stylist puts in the color and after it's set (20 minutes or so) she washes and then applies a "lock."  When I'm ready for a new color, she uses the "return" treatment to unlock the color and then applies the new one and locks it.  The rate of color loss compared to other dyes is minimal, though if you leave it in for a long time it will change colors in a very pretty, non-fadey way.


If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

I'm a major at dying my hair, (I'll probably be bald when I'm 25, but then I can draw on my head ^^) and i first used Color Pulse when my hair was audburn with white blond streaks. I used funky cherry, and my hair ended up red with firehouse red streaks ^^ TYhe only problem I had was it ended up turning my blonde pinkish! Since then i've only used Chilled Plum from the Color Pulse line but have dyed my hair a number of times, and it worked really good since i was dying it from dark audburn, came out just like it says on the box. I'm either dying it black next, or bleaching it... Not sure, but I'll get to both eventually. but, Color Pulse worked extremely well for me not to mention there's no ammonia, so there's no damage,which is a plus. 

Dear Die-ary,

I seem to be dead.

as you can probably see, it's up to you now.  It all depends on your hair.  I've dyed my hair so much that it should be falling out anyday now.  So, do the strand test, and go from there Smiley

As a hairstylist, that stuff pretty much scares the crap out of me.  It has a tendency to stain hair (even though they swear it's gone in 8-10 shampoos), especially if your hair is porous or chemically treated at all, if you swim a lot, or if your hair is light brown or lighter.  It stains more and more the redder you go, as well.  That's the nature of those types of products, which have a lot of direct dyes in them (just straight artificial color pigment).  I know that it's not exactly cost efficient and since we're all very crafty and such, we tend to go "Oooh, cooolooorrrrr.  I could do it myself, it can't be that hard!" but I really, REALLY suggest that you take your color questions to your stylist.  Trust me, you'll be wishing you did when you have to go spend $200+ to have a color corrected that you weren't really sure you wanted to mess with in the first place! (I see it all the time, I'm a color specialist and educator for the company Matrix)  S/he'll have a lot of neat suggestions on what you can do, and they will be able to make sure you get a color you're happy with.  And if for some strange reason you're not, you can always get your money back!

i just used the black on my red hair and i think it looks great...

i just did the underside...it isnt completely black, but its a huge change for me. i just washed it for the first time an hour ago so i cant tell you anymore beyond that, but i like mine alot.

Yeah my hair was probably about the same color of brown when I used the chilled plum stuff.  I was really pleased with how it came out and so were a bunch of my friends.  I know a few of them that tried it and it turned out horrible, so be cautious.  And be sure to use the gloves, thats a mistake I made that turned out pretty badly.

it's really up to you,but this is my experience with colorpulse: I LOVE IT!
i used copper blast, i have medium golden brown with blonde highlights, it dyed the brown a slightly orange red ginger kinda colour and the blonde was a lighter version of the orange red ginger colour. i loved it. but it leaves a stain in your hair AKA it never washes out completly(which is totaly fine by me, i like it)
