Crazy Color Semi-Permanent Hair Dye

Tuesday, April 18, 2017
I have wanted to dye my hair pink for months so I thought I'd take the safer option of just bleaching and dip dying the ends of my hair rather than ruining all of my hair at once! I've already tried the new Loreal Colorista Semi-Permanent Dye and I loved it but I have heard great things about Crazy Color so I was very excited when a couple of pretty pink shades arrived in the post to test out!

Just a quick note, I did bleach the ends of my hair, to find out more about that process of bleaching then check out my previous hair dye post. I think the lighter your hair, the better the colour will show up so for the lighter shades, I'm not the best candidate but here are my thoughts and the results I experienced - the first photo above is my hair without any semi-permanent.
I was kindly sent the 'Pinkissimo' and the new 'Peachy Coral' shades from Crazy Color by Renbow. They both come in cute pink bottles, you get 100ml in each and I tend to use half a bottle for the ends of my hair so if you were using it all over then you'd need quite a few bottles! You don't need to mix this dye with peroxide but I have seen people use conditioner with so many semi-permanent dyes to make then lighter/pastel.

The first dye I wanted to try out was the Pinkissimo shade as I'm loving having pink ends to my hair. The colour in the bottle is a very bright, almost metallic bubblegum pink shade! I applied it to damp hair which was easy, it isn't very runny so there isn't that much mess but it will stain clothing. I added about half a bottle to my hair and massaged it into my hair really well to make sure it was covered as much as possible although obviously when you rinse it out, there are always strands that aren't dyed.

I left the dye on the ends in tin foil *so attractive* for about 30 minutes As you can see from the photo below, the Pinkissimo dye gave my hair such a lovely warm pink hue which is different the colour in the bottle but it's still pretty. I think if my hair was lighter it would be brighter and more true to the dye colour but I didn't want to bleach my ends a third time (although I probably will at some point). I did go over it on dry hair to make the colour more intense and it worked really well! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
The dye lasted on the ends of my hair for about three to four washes so it's great if you are like me and you want to change up your hair colour often and it didn't leave a stain in my hair which is something I was concerned about but it fully washed out.

*Crazy Color 'Peachy Coral' Semi-Permanent Hair Dye (£4)
This is one of their newer shades! I knew when I received it that it probably wouldn't show up in my hair as well as the dark Pinkissimo shade as my hair isn't platinum blonde at the ends but hopefully you can see from the photo below that it did add a slightly peachy hint to my hair although my camera is washing it out a bit.
The peachy shade was almost completely washed out in one wash as there was only a small amount of colour in my hair. I think the Peachy Coral shade would be better for those with hair that is much lighter than mine as it would definitely show up better. Although it was just as easy to use and rinse out as the Pinkissimo shade. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

Overall, I love how incredibly quick and easy these semi-permanent dyes are to apply, develop and rinse out - it's very fuss free to switch up your colour! The Pinkissimo is my favourite of the two as the pigmentation was better on my hair but they both apply very easily and with minimal mess. They are one of the cheapest semi-permanent dyes out there and I think they're well worth a go. They make so many shades and I now have my eye on the graphite and lavender shades!

What do you think of these shades? Have you tried Crazy Color or any other semi-permanent dye? 


  1. I think these are good options for a quick change of colour! xx

  3. Such a shame they washed out so quickly xx

  4. I nearly picked these up a while ago, and love the pink shade. It's a great way to change your hair slightly for a short period of time.

  5. I really like the contrast with your natural hair colour - these sound great for a quick shot of colour!

  6. Pants that they washed out so quickly but great if you just want to do it for a few days x

  7. Shame they washed out so quickly but nice for an occasion xxx

  8. How adorable is the packaging? I can't believe it's only £4. What a great bargain.

  9. I've been wanting to try out a wash of colour like this in my balayaged hair but I figured it wouldn't look as good since my hair isn't a true blonde. The pink looks great on you though x

  10. I would love to try something like this on my blonde hair, but want to be a definite pink x

  11. Love this colour on you! I always wonder how colour will take to my hair because I'm so dark! I do think people with blonde hair can really rock pastel colours though!

  12. I haven’t used this brand but used similar shades in Directions… if you mix them both together you’ll get a beautiful rose gold shade :)

  13. That looks so good in the ends! I have died my hair pink and blue once through my ombre - I want to do it again!

  14. I keep looking at picking up these dyes as they're a fun way to experiment! I once dyed my ends green, but I think pink is definitely a better colour - especially as it looks like you've meant to do it, rather than a bleach job gone wrong haha.

  15. The colour before the 4 washes looks really nice! I'd love to be able to try out something like this but like you say you need lighter hair for the best results! Your hair is so lovely too xx
