One of our most popular Directions hair colours, Plum is a wonderful deep purple shade! Since it’s so highly pigmented, this dye sticks around for a long time when applied to bleached hair giving it a rich, lustrous shine. Plum may even give a tint to unbleached hair.
- Conditioning formula
- Long-lasting, semi-permanent
- Not tested on animals
Plum is a very pigmented and packed with colour. It leaves bleached hair a looking sleek and glossy with plenty of shine! Since there’s so much pigment in this dye, expect it to temporarily stain your skin, shower when rinsing and it may rub off onto clothing and bedding even when dry. We recommend taking precautions like applying Vaseline to your skin to prevent staining, wearing vinyl gloves when washing your hair, and using dark clothing and old bedding until the colour settles after 1 or 2 weeks.
Like many purples, Plum bleaches out to green and will also go green if a colour remover or any oxidative process is used to try and remove it, so it’s best to allow this colour to fade out naturally.
Directions works best on hair that has been pre-lightened to pale blonde. Some paler shades as well as toners will only work on very light hair. Apply directly to dry or slightly damp, freshly washed (but not conditioned hair) using a tint brush for best results, or use gloved fingers to spread the dye evenly through your hair. Allow to process for at least 15 minutes and do not allow to dry out. Rinse thoroughly. To avoid temporary staining to the skin, apply a layer of Vaseline around your hairline and ears before applying the colour.
