I can be realllly good at messing things up. That is why when my best friend sent me this new Viral Colorwash, I thought for sure I would find a way to do something wrong and have to bury my head for a week. But somehow… they make this stuff soooo easy to use, you really can’t mess it up!
Viral Colorwash adds extreme bold tones to pre-lightened hair, then lightens and fades out as you shampoo regularly. It’s basically the best way to play around with color, without having to commit.
To get this look I used the Teal Viral Colorwash which you can get here. They have a lot of really great colors to choose from, but I chose this one for my first use.
My roots were already pretty dark, so from that point down I just started working the Viral Colorwash into my hair… dry! I actually did not use any water- yet. I worked the blue product alllll throughout the blonde in my hair (wearing gloves of course) and then let it sit for about 13 minutes. I then sprayed my hair with a little bit of water from a spray bottle, and kept working the product into my hair like shampoo. With the added water, it started to foam up and was even easier to work with.
About 2 minutes later I hopped into the shower and got my hair wet. I rubbed the product in even more, this time really getting it into my roots as well. (The only bit of caution I would give at this point, is if color splatters on your shower walls, rinse it off asap so it doesn’t stain!) After working it into my roots, I rinsed my hair completely clean of the colorwash. I added a little bit of conditioner to my ends (cause I tend to be a knotty mess) and followed with a good blow dry. That’s it! No stress, no commitment, and you are in control of the boldness of the color!
I started out bold, but you can always do a light wash first, then continue to use it to build up more and more color if you’re a bit timid.
