28 Jul MARIA NILA – VIVID VIOLET
I’ve played with the idea of coloring my hair since 2011. And when I ran into Maria Nilas products I couldn’t resist.
For me it’s very important that hair products really nurses the hair and isn’t filled with chemicals.
Because of those requirements it has been almost impossible for me to find hair colours I wanted to try.
I’ve used the Colour Refresh Vivid Violet. It’s 100% vegan ingredients, free of sulphate and paraben and produced in Sweden.
The photo below shows my development of the color from wash to wash. Starting of with the first one where I just tested the colors a little bit mixed with my conditioner.
I wanted to look to be more intense and tried again. Thats the look you see on the next photo and the photo above. Because of my huge amount of hair it takes some practice for me to add the color equally all over the hair. So the really intense purple color is in my top hair fading down to the ends.
As you see on the next photos the color faded a lot from the first wash after the treatment, which left my hair with a more pastel look. I went to the sea and in the sun, and the color might faded out a bit, but it didn’t leave my hair discolored.
Last the photo was taken after the third wash, a little purple and blue hint and beautifully light grey.
I found the colour beautiful when it was all intense, but I think the light pastel purple/grey look is better for me.
I mixed the color with conditioner when I applied it, 70% color 30% conditioner.
Next time I might just add 20% color and 80%conditioner for a light pastel shade to my hair. Maybe with some ombre ends?
I even got the color Autumm Red as well.. Maybe a mix?
