I’ll keep this short because we all know that on the Fourth of July, you’re supposed to be out on a beach somewhere or playing bocce ball in someone’s backyard. Grilling is mandatory.
BUT I wanted to share my hair with you before the day ended!
Alyssa and I were able to try out a new temporary hair color called Streekers. Here is a little bit about the line:
Streekers is temporary hair color with a difference. Instant. Liquid. Washes out when you want it out. Not a gel, not a paint, not a mascara. A cool new hair color that uses innovative patented technology. Now, every Monday doesn’t have to be blue — how ’bout pink, ultra violet, red, green, orange, yellow, purple … or blue.
The lighter the hair – the hotter the color. Colors are most vibrant on blonde and blonde highlights.
Streekers is easy to apply with a sleek, soft-tip applicator that ensures perfect coverage and control. Streekers can be used over mousse, gel, or wax and followed by hair spray. Best of all, you can brush your hair after Streekers dries, and it won’t flake off. Your hair will be soft and the color will remain vibrant.
Highlights: you can layer it up and it will brighten on blonde hair and highlights – I wanted to make mine noticeably subtle (which makes no sense when I actually think about it!) but wanted it to stand out against my red hair! It was extremely easy to apply (maybe a video demo is in order!), dried quickly and you can brush through it easily.
Downsides: Alyssa used the Ultraviolet color on her hair recently and said that it left a pink color deposit in her highlights for more than one wash – this is something they warn about, so just keep it in mind. And from the reviews on Ulta, it sounds like sleeping with this stuff in your hair is a really bad idea.
I see these being best when you know you don’t have anything too important or formal coming up, just to be safe – and they’d be great for teens who want to dye their hair something crazy but have sensible parents. There are eight different shades – everything from pink and purple to blue and yellow (ooh, I must try these for a Michigan football game!) and they’ll run you around $12 each. The bottle has more than enough for multiple applications, so it’ll last you a while.
(Oh, and PS: I plan to bust the pink out to do an outfit post on the denim blog, so stay tuned!)
What do you think about the red streaks – and which color would you like best?
