No I used L'Oreal Color Rays in Fuschia. It's a one step color that leaves bright, noticeable color even on dark brown or black hair.

But, it's permanent. The pink color will start to fade, but not wash out like a temporary. When it fades too much, I'll either do it again, or just dye my hair back to brunette.

Although I saw some real PINK hair dye at Sally's Beauty Supply yesterday.....

Yep...those of us with light hair have to be careful about what we put in it! You might never get it out again.

Silver-I can't belive that is a rule at your daughters school. Pretty soon they'll be policing everything. I'm shocked you were able to get the color out so well since her hair is so light. Maybe it was easier since it wasn't in long?

Oh wow, that is so neat. And it looks great on you! I have dark hair, so I'm interested in anything that gives noticeable, permanent results like that!

I recently tried dying my hair red with some stuff that was supposed to be permanent, but it washed out completely after about a week. :(

They had that rule about "no unnatural colors" at the highschool in my hometown, too, but luckily I was homeschooled so I could dye my hair any color I wanted. XD

I first used "Color Zap" by L'oreal. It's supposed to removes all permanent hair color. But honestly it acted like any other color lifter, and left her hair pale, pale yellow. There were a few pink streaks left, and her roots were almost white! Afterwards used Garnier 100% Color which is a regular hair color, in a neutral tone. I'm just happy it turned out well. I did swatch tests with both products to make sure her hair wouldn't fry.

Good to know. If I ever get the urge to try something crazy like that again I can have color zap as a backup. Since my hair is so light I've had quite a few bad experiences with color.
