Pravana Wild Orchid Hair
I wanted to share my new Pravana Wild Orchid Hair. Last week I got tired of having so much red left in my hair. It’s been in my hair for 6 months at this point and I wanted it gone. So I removed it with One n’ Only Color Fix. It took me two sessions with Color Fix to remove the red and leave me with blonde hair. After it was out, I put Pravana Wild Orchid onto my hair.
After Round 1
I was surprised to see my ends turn blue after Round 1 of One n’ Only Color Fix. You can see there’s still red through the midsection.
After the 2nd round, I felt the red was sufficiently gone and mostly I had blonde and golden brown hair through the middle with lavender ends.
By the way, when I use One n’ Only Color Fix, I only use Step 1 and Step 2. I skip Step 3. Step 3 will latch only any dye molecules left in the hair and cause them to expand, darkening it all over again. I had a stylist recommend I skip the Step 3 in the past, and it really does make a difference.
Pravana Wild Orchid and Overtone Go Deep Extreme Pink
After washing and drying my hair my ends felt damaged. I also had a few places that hadn’t picked up color in that middle part of my hair. So I used Overtone Go Deep Extreme Pink mask on my dry hair and put a cap on to help keep in my body heat. I left the mask on for 3 hours. After I washed that out, my hair felt super silky and soft.
This past Tuesday I went to see Cliff to get my ends trimmed. It had been about 3 months since my last trim. Surprisingly, he said that I had minimal damage to my ends. He said it’s partially from using deep conditioning masks like Overtone and It’s a 10 Miracle Deep Conditioning Mask with keratin. It’s also from using my silk pillowcase or satin bonnet. Oh, and of course, laying off the heat has helped tremendously.
I try to let my hair air dry as often as possible. I also rarely heat style it right now. This seems to be the only way I can get it to grow longer.
Right now I love the Pravana Wild Orchid hair color, which is pink with a slight purple undertone. In some lights, it looks like a rose pink. Currently, the dark parts of my hair are my natural hair color.
