Hair Project Completed

I wanted to show the final result of dyeing my regrowth, but I cannot get a picture to accurately depict the color. No matter what I try, no matter which settings I use, my camera INSISTS on making my hair look blue.

This one is more accurate:

The true color is close to this:

  1. Great colour! I was going to do some streak and tips in this exact shade but gave up on the idea after reading a few failure stories.

    1. Thanks! I have learned there are a lot of variables that influence hair color results.

  2. What a great shade! Purple is a funny color to photograph, florescent lights tend to have a faint bluish tinge, turning any purples blue... and any dominating yellow bulbs turn purples red. In your camera, if you're able to tinker with the white balance, then you may have better luck capturing your purples. If not, putting a piece of white tissue paper over your light to diffuse it might help.

    1. Thanks for the tips. The camera has several light settings (fluorescent, halogen, etc.) and options for white balance, but none of them get the color quite right.

    1. Thank you! I am really liking the Arctic Fox dye (and a portion of their profits is donated to help animals; a nice plus!).

  5. I really like that ombre effect, it might even be prettier than all purple...i might try that the next time i do my roots (but my roots are all white)
