Unicorns are making a comeback this season, and it’s not just in your favorite frappuccino. Whimsical beauty brand Lime Crime has just debuted Unicorn Hair—a semi-permanent dye with the power to transform your hair into something truly enchanting, or at least beautifully and brightly colored.
Let’s be real though: veterans of neon-hued hair know that it can be tough in not only achieving, but maintaining vividly colored tresses. How many have dyed their hair a lush mermaid teal, only to find themselves sporting a dull shade of “fish tank green” just a few washes later? Not to mention the worry of staining the sinks when you’re done. For as cool as it looks, there are challenges to having colorful hair.
Despite the dye-drama, Lime Crime Unicorn hair color stacks up pretty well. Surprisingly, the company claims its shades are formulated to “fade out gracefully”; and while it’s always best to make friends with dry shampoo and sulfate free hair care products to keep any multicolored hue looking vibrant, it’s great to have some extra leeway with the up-keep. Beach days in the sun and surf, or washing your hair more often for a new pastel look, without the possibility of being stuck with a washed out “do” until the next dye-job sounds heavenly.
Even more heavenly though are the names. With colors called “Bunny”, “Jello”, “Neon Peach”, and “Pony”, it’s tempting to want to try a shade out just to snag some of that bold attitude for yourself. The dye is made with only vegan products, also, so no harsh chemicals and you won’t wind up staining anything save for your strands, of course. Lime Crime also applauds its “unicorns” (as they affectionately refer to their clients) who mix different colors to create their own signature hue. The company’s website has even posted some fun recommendations as to which shades you might want to try mixing. Unique colors, ripe for creative combinations, with minimal upkeep? Now that’s magical. http://www.dollskill.com/shop/lime-crime.html
