Revolution Rainbow Drops Review.

Revolution Rainbow Drops Review.

Hello my lovelies! I hope you’ve had a good week so far and have been enjoying the slightly warmer weather (if we can even call it warmer haha we’re still under 10 degrees celsius)! So, this week I’ve been taking some time for selfcare, and one of the things I decided to do was to look after and tone my hair. You may have noticed from my other posts over the last few weeks that my hair is now pink!

I had pink hair once for about a week, and that was when I first shaved my head. I loved the colour, but at the time it was too big of a change for me and I only kept it for a week, but then about a month or two ago I took the plunge and went pink again, and I absolutely love it!

This weekend I spent some time bleaching and toning my roots. Since bright hair colours fade fairly fast I’ve taken to toning my hair every 5-7 weeks to keep my hair vibrant. And to do that I’ve picked up some Revolution rainbow hair drops in ‘pink rays’ and ‘peach rays’ to try out, and I figured why not review them for you as I think they’re fairly new!

Pink and Peach Rays Revolution Rainbow Drops

The hair drops have around 300 drops in a post, and are used with conditioner and is applied like a hair mask. To get the colour you want you just add the number of drops into the conditioner until you get the colour you want. You can also check the colour with the number of drops you need with the colour chart on the box.

Pink and Peach Rays Revolution Rainbow Drops

First impressions of the drops are that they’re quite gloopy and are very pigmented. I used about 25 of pink and 10 of peach to make my colour the first time I toned my hair and then I just winged it the second time until it was a colour I wanted. The conditioner I decided to use was a from superdrugs own ‘fruity’ range of hair products, I picked it up at the same time I picked up the drops.

I’ll admit, when I looked online at reviews I saw that these drops worked for some people and did nothing for others so I was a bit skeptical, but figured that for the price it was worth a try and if they worked for me then I’d definitely get more than my money’s worth.

Here’s what my hair looked like before, during and after the toning:

And here’s what my hair looks like now that it’s dry:

I have to say, when I washed out the toner (the time I didn’t count how many drops I used – probably around 25/30 pink and 20 peach) my hair was looking like it was going to be neon, and to be honest I absolutely love it! My hair has never been so vibrant and pink is definitely a colour that I’ll have for quite some time.

My overall review on the Rainbow Hair Drops by Revolution is that they worked amazingly on my bleached hair, and I was able to get a completely unique colour for my hair which I love. Plus, I love that it’s a pigment dropper that will last a long time and all you need is a colourless conditioner; so not only was the colour payoff great for me, but my hair was also left feeling super nourished and shiny.

I’d one hundred percent recommend these to anyone who has pink hair, and if I decide to go another colour I’ll definitely look into using their colour drops to tone my hair; at the moment they’ve got pink, peach, lilac, silver and blue available at superdrug. I believe they’re priced at £9.99 per bottle which if you think about it is very cheap for a toner that has 300 drops in it and all you have to do is decide how much you want to use for the shade you want. I’d be very interested to see how their other colour drops look on others hair, especially the lilac and blue droppers (blue hair unfortunately isn’t my colour, but I may try lilac in the future if I fancy switching up colours!).

I think the results you’ll get with these will depend on your hair and it’s current condition,; for me, my hair had been bleached twice once with 30 volume developer and another with 20 volume and then I had a previous pastel pink demi permanent colour which had faded out. With most bright and pastel tones they’ll show up better on light natural blonde or bleached hair, and my hair sucks up pigment pretty quickly and easily which is likely why I am able to get such a bold shade.

What hair colours have you been? What was your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

And with that, I’m going to go and have a pyjama day! Have a great rest of your week my lovelies!!

Trying Out Different Style Aesthetics.

Trying Out Different Style Aesthetics.

Hello my lovelies!! So over the last few months I’ve been trying out different fashion styles to see which ones I like the most; and I decided to start off with two of my favourite styles – light and dark academia! I also decided to try out e-girl fashion and then some cute tops I wouldn’t normally have ordered myself!

To give you an idea of all of the styles I like and look forward to trying, you can check out my pinterest board below!

First up I’ve been putting together some cute outfits based on light and dark academia! The academia style is all about layering, check and dogstooth patterns, cardigans, turtlenecks, jumpers and that sort of old English school fashion. For dark academia I used dark, slightly preppy pieces, including a cute black a-line skirt, dark green cardigan, dark pleated skirt, turtlenecks, dark jumpers and checked trousers. For light academia I used lighter clothes, still lots of turtlenecks, some pleated skirts and light check trousers.

Here’s a brief overview of some pieces you might see in dark and light academia outfits:

Here’s some of the dark academia outfits I came up with with what I had in my wardrobe!

And here are some light academia outfits I came up with!

Along with trying out the different academia aesthetics, I also ordered a few pieces to try out an e-girl look!

For this I picked out a black graphic tee, my a-line skirt with a slit, black tights and fishnets, chunky black boots, a striped turtleneck and some chains!

I’ve also been trying out some more colours that I wouldn’t usually gravitate towards, because I recently dyed my hair a pinky colour which made me want to try out some new colours that would compliment my hair nicely!

After trying out these different styles, I have found a major love for both of the academia aesthetics. They made me feel like I should be in some romantic magical land with beautiful libraries and buildings, and I one hundred percent felt smarter wearing these outfits. Plus, this aesthetic is great for the colder weather because it typically has a lot of layering involved! And this helped me find my love for turtlenecks once again!

I also really enjoyed the e-girl aesthetic, it made me feel powerful and like I was a badass! It definitely wasn’t as cosy as the academia aesthetics for me but was still super cute. I’m not sure it’s a style that I’ll fully adopt into my wardrobe more than I have for this try-on, but I know I’ll certainly wear aspects of it now and again. One thing I’m for sure going to start wearing more of is the colour green because I really like how it looks against my skin tone and my new hair!

Trying out these different aesthetics has absolutely made me want to try more styles out in the future; I love the look of cottage core and soft girls so I may well try those ones out next!

What aesthetics would you like to see me try next? Let me know in the comments!

Have a great weekend my lovelies!

Love,
