I love crazy hair color and have been dying to try out the unicorn hair trend that’s been all over Instagram and Pinterest. I found Lime Crime released a new line of hair dye and they even named it after the style, Unicorn! This dye is perfect because it is a professional formula that is conditioning as well as long lasting and gorgeous. This line has two different formulas, full coverage and tint. This dye is semi-permanent and the website says it does NOT “stain your life”, though if it does leave some marks they should disappear by the second washing. Both are direct dyes without ammonia or peroxide, perfectly gentle for my heat damaged hair.
This new Unicorn hair trend inspired formula has been in the works for 3 years, plenty of time for color perfection. Lime Crime Unicorn Dye is vegan, cruelty free and come in 13 amazing fantasy shades. The colors range from neon peach, a toned down red shade, to bright purple, like you might expect to find on an actual unicorn. The bottle says these colors work best on bleached or blonde hair, and the website recommends a recent even bleaching for best results. On darker hair the tint will show in the sun like a flash of crazy color. This collection is perfect for ombre styles, mermaid or unicorn designs.
Lime Crime recommends one jar for short hair and up to three for super long booty-length mermaid hair. You can even mix the colors, if you want a pastel look then just add conditioner to your mix! Add any of the Unicorn line dyes together to create your own unique shade and you can even mix with other brands of fantasy color dyes. The tints can last for 8-10 washes, while the full coverage dyes last up to 12 washes. At just $16 a jar, I think I’m ready for a whole new rainbow style!
