My blue hair

I went out to my favourite cheesy club night last night and had lots of fun, dancing about and meeting up with friends. It's a pretty much anything-goes kind of night and was the perfect opportunity to try out the Colour Xtreme coloured hair spray I was sent.

I'm desperately bored with my hair and so I thought I'd see what it would look like dip dyed.

Utterly shocked at how vivid the colour is! Spray colour has completely changed since my mum sprayed orange stripes in my hair when I dressed up as Ginger Spice once. I washed it out this morning and there isn't a trace of colour left.

There were a few downsides. It was very messy. I sprayed it all over my neck,dressing gown and hands. Luckily it washes off skin fairly easily. It also seems to stay in the air pretty well. I'm getting over a cold, blew my nose later and it's contents were also blue! This is described as a coloured hairspray, rather than a dye so it made the ends of my hair very stiff. My hands also turned blue everytime I touched it. I eventually decided to put my hair up to avoid turning smurf like later in the evening.

The stiff ends actually made putting it up very easy. It scrunched into a perfect bun and needed no pinning. I'm very, very tempted to bleach my ends and get this done properly now.

I was very impressed, as were my friends, with the pigmentation of the spray, but it definitely works better when used on an up do.

Colour Xtreme is available in 8 different shades, costs £4.07 and can be bought in Boots and on Amazon.

this spray was sent to me for review, as previously mentioned

If I want change I’d probably go for a haircut or experiment with different hair colors. Well, I've had blue hair color before and I really loved it. My girlfriends loved it too! :)) I’m about to try a different shade next month. Hmm, I think I’ll try yellow this time! :D
