If you’ve been craving a really bright hot-pink colour, nothing matches Atomic Pink. This neon pink is almost luminous and it glows neon pink in sunlight and fluoresces a bright pale pink under UV! It’s extremely long-lasting and most people find it lasts several months when applied to bleached hair.
Because Atomic Pink is so densely pigmented, you may experience some colour transfer onto your skin/clothing/bedding/towels etc. for the first week or two, especially when your hair is wet. Usually this kind of staining is easily removed by washing, but you may wish to take precautions like wearing dark coloured clothing or using old pillowcases until the colour transfer subsides.
Colour rub-off can be reduced by diluting the colour with conditioner or Special Effects toner, although this will lighten the colour slightly.
It’s no surprise that Atomic Pink is our best-selling pink. This stunning colour needs to be seen to be believed because photos can’t do it justice; it’s even brighter and more dazzling in real life!
For best results, particularly with lighter shades, apply to hair that has been pre-lightened to pale blond. Apply to freshly washed (not conditioned), dry or damp hair. Apply using latex gloves. We recommend using a tinting brush to ensure even coverage. Work the dye into the hair for a few minutes and leave for at least 15 minutes (you may leave this dye on for longer as long as you cover your hair with plastic wrap or a shower cap to prevent it drying out). Rinse with warm water until the water runs clear.
For longer lasting colour, use a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair.
Although these dyes do not contain the harsh chemicals of other dyes such as ammonia and peroxide, there is still a small chance that they could cause an allergic reaction. For this reason it is imperative that you do a strand and sensitivity test before using them. An ingredients list is available above and can also be found on the product’s packaging (ingredients list can sometimes be found under our sticker). NEVER use any of these products on eyelashes or eyebrows.
As you would expect from a dye these colours can stain textiles, ceramic, wood and other surfaces as well as temporarily stain skin and nails so be careful to cover surfaces and wear gloves when applying the colour. Once used these products may also rub off your hair and skin and onto clothing and bedding. Although this usually disappears after washing it’s worth bearing this in mind. Staining to bathtubs, basins and showers can easily be cleaned using a bleach based cleaning product.
Do not mix with peroxide.
Colours may cause permanent staining to bleached or chemically treated hair. Tip: You can avoid staining on your skin by applying a layer of vaseline anywhere on your skin where dye may come in contact.
