Pravana Pravana Locked-In Teal Photos
So since my last pic I toned my hair to white and then added some of Pravana's Locked-In Teal to the roots. It does really stick to where you put it! Even when I rinsed, I didn't do anything different (cold water, scrubbed with conditioner), and it really didn't move much if at all :D Of course, when I rinsed some of the toner came out and I have some blonde strands in there too now :/ The balancing trick of toner and washing and dyeing, lol XD
I was going for a bit of geode/lava rock scheme, but my two teal/aqua shades weren't distinct enough. I probably should've stuck to a straight blue, but I'm pretty much the queen of mixing too many shades to make something that I already had. You can't see the back, but it's a corally red shade. Used up the last of my Pravana Neon Yellow on this, and I think I'm going to replace it instead of going back to my standard Electric Banana or Bright Yellow. I like the neutral tone it has, particularly for making orange shades. The golden yellow was a mix of Truly Red and Neon Yellow. The teal was diluted Emerald. I also added a touch of Green Ivy to it, but the two shades are essentially the same. The blue-ish purple is a combo of Locked-In Teal, Indigo Blue, and a touch of Flamingo Pink diluted in equal parts conditioner. The corally red in the back (not shown) was diluted Punky Cherry on Top and Neon Yellow.
I feel like I'm always bouncing between warm and cool, but this felt nice for the change in seasons. For some reason, the oranges I mix up always end up fading down really quickly. It's only been two washes and the roots are already down to a golden flaxseed shade. The orange was Truly Red and Neon Yellow. The purple was roughly 2:1 Flamingo Pink and Locked-In Teal diluted in equal parts conditioner. I kept it a bit more on the pink side, because it was going over a minty green base and I think it pulled the way I wanted it to. It's not shown in the photo, but the back is a bit of a raspberry shade made with about 1:1 Truly Red and Flamingo.
