Bleach London Hair Crayon Review

Bleach London Hair Crayon Review
A couple of weeks back when I was grabbing my essentials in Boots I came across the Bleach London hair crayons for around £4 so I thought..I've always wanted to dye/colour the ends of my hair in a pastel pink so why not try these crayons and see if I like them! They have a variety of colours too so I will definitely be grabbing some more next time!

When I finally got around to applying it I placed the ends of my hair on a towel on a hard surface where I was able to put pressure on. I took the crayon and just started 'colouring' the ends until it was near enough the way I wanted. The bad side about doing this was how fast the crayon got blunt so it was a constant every 2 minutes of sharpening involved. 

It is a little time consuming and it does take a lot of patience especially with resharpening the crayon. I realized my patience was running out when my crayon was half way used already! (the disadvantages of long hair!) You can sort of see some of the results it left my hair in the photo above - unsure why the light has made one photo look darker than the other. I didn't colour all of my ends because by this point my sharpener broken! which was really frustrating.

In terms of long lasting I have noticed this colour still in my hair after the odd hair wash so they do stay in like the box says it does. However, I found after a day of this in my hair the ends felt very dry and tatty so I don't like leaving it on my ends for longer than a day. These are perfect for festivals or holidays away because of them being inexpensive 

Pros:
Inexpensive
Variety of colours
Nice outcomes
Perfect for festivals
Easy-ish to apply
Last a few washes
Get your moneys worth

Cons:
Constantly resharpening
Sharpener breaks easy
Takes a lot of time/patience
Creates a bit of a mess

Overall, I am glad I tried one of these out because even though I didn't manage to finish my ends off I still liked the results it gave! it made my ombre look a lot more appealing. Apart from the constant resharpening and the sharperner actually breaking I am satisfied with the results and will probably repurchase another.

Have you tried any of the Bleach London range?

  1. This gives such a cool effect. Perfect for anyone that doesn't want to commit to dying their hair. Shame it takes so long to do and the pencil always cracks... x

  2. I tried the temporary dyes and I found them to be a patchy but generally good, they do stain the hair a little bit though! I'll be giving these a go at some point, though, I'm sure.

    S xo.

    1. really? I do like this brand but I don't think I would buy a dye. These are useful to have for the odd day! xx

  3. Looks cool, but I'd probably just dye it with the bleach london dyes since they are the same but with a bit more staying power and a lot less mess. I'd probably just go for a hair chalk rather than a pencil since it saves sharpening. x
