Salmon, Like The Fish by Loonaki Salmon, Like The Fish by Loonaki
Are you feeling uninspired and lonely and overall like crap?! Do you feel like you suck at life and at about everything? No problemo! Just dye your hair!

Ok, it doesn't really help, but it's somehow therapeutic. xD

So, basically... I re-dyed it yet again. I'm now quite unable to describe the color.
Something like light orange/peachy-pink/salmon maybe...

And somehow, everytime I hear the word salmon, I have to think of The Lovely Bones (OMG such a great book!), so that's where the title came from.

And before you ask, this is how I achieved that color: I only bleached my hair once (which happened in June) and then dyed it pink several times with a non-permanent dye ("Directions" Carnation Pink) (pic: [link]). Then I only dyed the tips with Bright Daffodil of the same brand (pic: [link]). And now I dyed everything with Bright Daffodil once again. This probably wasn't even interesting for half of y'all. xD

I love that book too! When I first saw the title, I was like, "Hey, that sounds like The Lovely Bones!" and when I read your description, I was like, "Yes! I was right!" and had a moment of satisfaction. Anyways, I love your hair colour a lot, it's a really nice blended gradient of orange and pink and I really like how you photographed it. The orange part of your hair sort of looks like the tail of a fish while the salmon-coloured (lol) part of your hair sort of looks like the body. Overall, I really like it :D

I can't really tell how long it could stay, since I redye it before it even has the chance to fade.

The Lovely Bones made me love the word 'Salmon'... and that phrase always pops into mind when I hear the word! :P I tried to do something similar with my last name... Henderson... like the chicken. Somehow, it isn't as poetic :giggle:

Your hair is amazing! I love it! I have almost black hair so to get my hair to be a vibrant purple I had to destroy it with bleach... And then the purple ended up washing out about 2 weeks after. But your hair is so vibrant and lovely!

So if you dye your hair, how does it get back to its normal color? I would love to dye my hair but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to get it back to its natural color and apparently my hair color is rare so I doubt I would be able to dye it back
Reply
:iconloonaki:
Loonaki Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011   Traditional Artist
Well, ok. If you bleach it, you won't get it back to normal unless you let it grow out. But if you only use those colorful non-permanent dyes on your natural haircolor it will wash out after a little while, though I won't guarantee that it doesn't leave a stain (depends on the brand of dye you use, your hair structure and the color you choose). So if you like your haircolor and you're really concerned about not getting your natural color back, you probably shouldn't dye it. :3

I don't know exactly. Definitely longer in bleached hair (about 1 1/2 to 2 months maybe). In non-bleached hair about two washes (at least in my hair...).
