Comments about Splat Complete Color Kit:

I have used Splat Hair Color (Red) in the past, and loved the results, so when I set out to dye a panel of my hair purple, I returned to the crowd favorite.

I purchased the Lusty Lavender, and proceeded with the process. I have dark brown hair, but I had the same panel done 6 months ago, so the old hair was already pretty blonde. I used the bleaching solution all over the panel (new hair as well as the older, blonder hair). For dark hair, the instructions recommend 50-60 minutes of bleaching. As part of my hair was already blonde, I began checking at the 30 minute mark, and then every 10 minutes thereafter. To nobody's surprise, it wasn't done after 30 minutes. In total, I left the bleach on for approximately 65 minutes. My roots (new, dark hair) were not blonde by any means at that point, but I was worried about roasting my hair.

Proceed to step 2: The Color. The bottle is a pre-mixed, vibrant purple that (as the directions suggest) makes everything that it comes into contact with purple as well. We liberally coated my hair in the solution and let it sit the 40 (I believe) minutes it required. I got in the shower to wash off (easier that way), rinsed for some time, shampooed my hair as instructed, and rinsed again until the color was almost non-existent in the runoff. Let me tell you, that was at least 30 minutes. I don't know how someone could have done this in a sink.

Step 3: The Reveal. After over 2 hours, my hair was a bright and vibrant ... PINK! My hair is PINK! Not, "Oh that's kind of a pinkish-purple." It's pink. Let me say, I'm not opposed to having pink hair. I've done it in the past and liked it, but it wasn't what I was going for today. Buyer beware, the color was not accurate. I acknowledge that my hair was probably not evenly bleached (from blonde to blonde is a lot easier that from dark brown to blonde), but every shade of my hair is pink. No question about it.

So, will I use Splat Hair Color in the future? Maybe. Will I use Lusty Lavender (which is VERY purple on the box)? Not a snowball's chance in hell.

      Comments about Splat Complete Color Kit:

      I've never dyed my entire head before so I decided I'd dye it over the long weekend, when I went to the store purple desire looked absolutely gorgeous on the girl on the box so I decided to get it. It was the first and last time I'll ever use Splat. It washed almost completely out (except for my roots) after one wash. (I had my aunt dye my hair and she's a hair dresser)

        My children dye their hair for breast cancer awareness month. This color is perfect for my blondes and the bleach makes my brunettes just as amazing!

          Comments about Splat Complete Color Kit:

          Splat was the first dye I used when I wanted an unnatural color - Crimson Obsession lasted incredibly long and when it did fade, it faded to a gorgeous redish pink. When I decided I wanted purple hair, I tried Manic Panic, but it faded incredibly quickly. I have thick hair that goes down to my waist and it was incredibly expensive to dye it so often, so I went back to Splat. Purple Desire lasts so much longer than Manic Panic and is so much prettier. When I first dyed it, it appeared blue, but then after one wash it was definitely purple. I've had the color in my hair for about 7 weeks (I wash my hair once a week to maintain the color) and it's still a gorgeous purple, and where it has faded, it's faded to pink and I love it! Your hair doesn't even have to be completely bleached to use it. The only negative thing I can say is it does bleed a bit the first few times you wash your hair.

              This kit is so messy, it gets everywhere. It also bleeds so bad that I would not recommend using it. Instead, try some other brands or have a professional do your hair.

                Comments about Splat Complete Color Kit:

                I love Splat. It is easy to use and includes bleach but it worked on blonde hair without bleach. It fades after a few weeks but stays in for months. It does come out a little in the shower for 10+ washes but for me it's worth it. I love the colors and it doesn't seem to be too harsh on my hair.

                  Comments about Splat Complete Color Kit:

                  I have used the blue, pink and lavender shades on my hair! The blue and pink for ombr� ends and recently the lavender all over my head. The only downfall I have with this product is that it does not come with quite enough bleach. I have thin shoulder length hair and there is just enough dye but those with thicker or longer hair I would recommend two boxes.
