Yes the pink is back, this time around I used Schwarzkopf, honestly I've never used this brand before, I always had this feeling the brand was just damaging for my hair -yeah I know from the person who bleaches their hair like there's no tomorrow. My hair was cut last month or was it earlier this month? My brain is failing, so most of my blonder ends were gone so after giving my hair a good rest and a lot of conditioning. The blonde returned I used the Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL HD Atomic Blonde to lighten the hair and I did slap a ash blonde to tone it down the day after before then putting the Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL Shocking Pink* over most of my hair. I'm loving how it turned out, it's got a nice gradient.
