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.

I used

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.
