Lisannette, the Chroma Caticorn: part 2 (Blue)
I'm blue da ba dee da ba "dyyyeeee"
It worked! My first transition was super successful, ya'll!
A quick recap: I've embarked on an epic hair adventure that will take me all the way around the color wheel using oVertone only! Check out the first blog post to learn all about how I started!
So, that epic plan I set forth, well it worked!
Here's what I started with:
aaaand this is what I ended up with:
To get my hair prepped for Vibrant Blue I had to first fade my hair as much as possible! I ended up using a combination of clarifying shampoos for their varying intensity of stripping build-up. I started off with the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo, but because it was so drying I only used it 2 times a few days apart. After each use I totally had to treat my strands with an Argan Oil Hair Mask from Sally's to reintroduce moisture.
After the second use of the Neutrogena and the Argan oil mask, I waited a few days for my natural hair oils to build up and then I used the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream. It's still a clarifying shampoo but much more gentle than the Neutrogena - it's supposed to be color safe, too! The instructions say for intense build up to leave it on for up to 10 mins, and that's exactly what I did! Washing it out looked like I had just colored my hair yesterday with the amount of pigment it pulled out of my hair. The best part was it didn't leave behind a birds nest of tangles. Even still, I treated my locks to another dose of that Argan Oil mask for added breakage protection.
After about 4 rounds of clarifying over a 2 week period my hair faded to a point where I felt like the Vibrant Blue oVertone could over power whatever green was left in my hair.
Here's my hair after clarifying:
Now for the exciting part! I grabbed my Vibrant Blue Go Deep Weekly Treatment and applied it to clean dry hair making sure to cover every part thoroughly!
Here's my hair with Vibrant Blue Go Deep in it:

I'd say this first transition was very successful, what do you think?
Now, I've been rocking my blue hair for a bit now, and I'm totally ready for my next transition. SILVER! This one is going to be so hard, but I have a plan. It involves Pastel Red. Stay tuned for the next transition results!
