First off, I love the smell of this product. Nothing better than a color depositing conditioner that just smells good. Second, it's saved me from having to go back to my lovely hairstylist the next week because my pink definitely did NOT stay. However, my pastel pink wasn't ideal because my ends weren't brightened to the point of no return. So that's on me, if I was lifted a little more I think I would have my ideal pastel pink.
But then something magical happened. My hairstylist/roommate gave me a a Vibrant Purple and told me to MIX the two....and it made my hair look friggin' AWESOME, and smell good. Duh. I ran out of the pink, so I continued to use the Vibrant Purple mixed with my regular conditioner and now my hair is slowly turning lavender but also toning my blonde pieces. What a magical experience!
