“Don’t Just D.I.Y. Do It Your Way”

I am sure you have already heard about L’Oréal Paris Colorista collection, that is the perfect range for everyone that wants to try pink, green, or blue hair colours without the commitment that comes with permanent hair dyes.

I love experimenting with my hair and, as you know, I had already my hair dyed pink and violet in the past years. But, I have to say, that a permanent dye is quite hard to manage, so when I saw the Colorista collection I had to try it!

Today I will share with you my Colorista Washout Burgundy Review. I have chosen the Burgundy colour, but there are also other products included in the range.

In fact, the Colorista collection offers hairspray for one day use and non-permanent hair dyes that last one or two weeks. And, if you want a lasting colour there is also the option of choosing some permanent hair colours that are divided into metallic, smoky or burgundy tones.

All the colours are trendy and very nice, from pastel pink to intense blue and lovely lilac tones. Unfortunately, a lot of shades, such as the pastel ones, only works on blonde hair. So to try them the hair needs to be dyed. The Colourist range also has the Lightening Kits to achieve an ombre or balayage look that helps to create a blonde look before using the pastel colours.

I tried the Colorista Washout in Burgundy, and I was very pleased with the results.

The Colorista Washout is very easy to apply. It comes with instructions and gloves. You can place the colours on all the hair or just on some part of it. I used it on all my hair, and I left the colour for 30 minutes. On the package, it says to leave in for 20 minutes or 30 minutes for a more vibrant result.

My hair is brown, but a small part of it was bleached a few months ago.

After the 30 minutes, I washed my hair and styled it. The result was very nice, as you can see in the photo below.

If you have long hair, I recommend you to buy two boxes because one was just enough for my hair that it is mid length.

In the product, there is also a conditioning hair-mask base that makes the difference because it leaves the hair very soft.

The colour stayed only for the first week and now it is gradually fading. I have to say that it took better on the bleached hair than the rest, but I liked the ombre effect.

I am looking forward to trying more products from this range, but I hope they will offer more colours suitable for darker hair!

      Hi Brittany, the colour faded quite quickly and became red. But I already had red highlights before using this product. Thankfully, I didn’t have any “green tint problem” 🙂 You can see this photo on my Instagram to have an idea how the colour became after a few washes: Hope this will help! 🙂
