Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

I tried about 4 different dyes to get my blonde hair pink but nothing stuck until Unicorn Hair. I got the Bubblegum Rose color and it was perfect. It smelled good too. The only problem I had was getting it on all of my hair. I have very fine hair and thought I got it on everywhere, but there were some blonde streaks. It has stayed in pretty well for a few weeks. I even used clarifying shampoo to fade it more, but it didn't fade much.

Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

Manic Panic was my go to purple dye. I tried this stuff since my hair wasn't holding their dye lately. I'm so glad I did.It doesn't wash out as fast and smells amazing in my opinion. My hair was also soft after using it.

    First thought opening the jar: it smelled way less chemical than any other color I've ever used. It's really creamy which made applying it easy. I used an applicator brush to paint it on and rubbed it in a little with my fingers. I let it process for about 30 min and then rinsed my hair. WHen I first rinsed after pro

    I love this stuff! I have dark brown hair and I use this in sea witch to give my ends a dark green tint. It's subtle but good color. The dye doesn't smell terrible and hasn't ruined my hair.

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

      I had been using Lime Crime dyes for almost 6 months without any issues. Sure, the tints didn't last long and weren't as vibrant as the semi-permanent dyes, but then again, they are tints. Aesthetic had been my go-to color for a month or so and I was loving it!

      However, when I switched over to Chestnut, that's when the problems began. The color applied and showed up as expected, but it kept bleeding and staining everything I owned when my hair was wet. Even after two days of washing my hair. I could see the dye running out even when just running water over my hair. No idea why that color didn't seem to stick and kept washing out so easily, but after a ruined towel and pillowcase, I'm hesitant to try the product again.

      Chocolate Cherry will show on med-dark brown hair but....

      By Clevergirlinsf

      from San Francisco

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

      it's also going to show on your pillowcases, towels, shirt collars, your boy/girl friend and pretty much anything else your hair comes in contact with for several weeks after applying. It even tinted my contacts pink! (So I strongly recommend you not wear contacts in the shower if you will be getting your hair wet) My hair is 2" past my shoulders, I used about half the jar and left it on for about 2 1/2 hrs. It has a pleasant scent unlike many other hair colorants. While I was rinsing the color out, my bathtub looked like a scene from movie "Carrie". As for the results, the color was very noticeable. I liked the color and how soft it made my hair. I even received compliments from people I didn't know. Unfortunately I won't order it again because I just can't deal with the color transferring onto everything.

      Leave on OVER a hour!

      By Lime grimy girl

      from Maryland

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

      Manic panic always bleeds on everything I own I got tired of ruining bed sheets and towels clothes and jackets.. I tried this because I like unicorns and I believe this is an ethical way to get a good hair dye without the added nasties.. well anyways I bought several of these colors on the lime crime website to try out and my hair is already bleached so I did not have any problem with color payoff as they would become super bright for over a month of wearing time, I do use redken hair color saver shampoo and ect. So maybe that helps too. But hey this stuff smells like berries! I have used the colors "salad", "pony", "anime", and "jello". I feel this stuff works better if I keep it in for OVER a hour maybe 2-3 hours w/e but it lasts a long time on my bleached hair and it also seems to condition it Too and soften the light damage. But hey I'm only one person. I love this stuff and the packaging makes me feel I'm in pony land putting jelly on myself

      Squid

      By Kristin

      from New York

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

      Squid is terrible. Zero color pay off. I tried it in January before Sea Witch and was so disappointed that I almost returned Sea Witch.

      I have dark brown hair & was only expecting a slight tint, but this left NO color. It MAYBE made my hair 1 shade darker. Maybe. That's me being generous. Not even a hint of actual color. I used the entire jar & left it on for 2 hours. Unlike Sea Witch with stains everything, Squid easily wiped right off of everything - me & every bath room surface. Squid did so little that when I did Sea Witch the first this I was absolutely reckless because I was expecting zero results again and ended up turning into Gamora.

      Sea Witch

      By Kristin

      from New York

      Comments about Lime Crime Online Only Unicorn Hair Semi-Permanent Hair Color Full Coverage:

      I'm hoping that Ulta will let me leave two separate reviews because the colors perform very differently. This one is for Sea Witch.

      I have dark brown hair, yes dark brown. It's already thinning so bleaching isn't an option Ill consider. I wanted color, but still need to be work appropriate. I left the dye in for hours (I'm ashamed to admit how many lol) since my hair is so dark, but it worked. It tinted my hair a green thats noticeable in the sunlight or bright light and fairly noticeable in normal lighting. People say, "Your hair is...green? is your hair green?" Because they aren't sure in normal lighting. This is fine by me because it makes it more wearable at work. I was only expecting a slight tint since my hair is so dark and this did exactly what I wanted. It actually shows more color than I expected. I only wash my hair every 1-2 weeks so it lasts a while on me, but it does start to fade after the first shampooing. The water will run blue for a bit. It won't really run clear when you first rinse out the dye.

      Sea Witch is THICK and pigmented. By accident I only used half of the jar and it was plenty of dye to tint it. I thought I had emptied the jar, but when I picked it up he next morning it was still half full. I've since used the other half to intensify the color. My hair is slightly past my shoulders, but thin. The dye will turn your life green. I am not joking. Use all the Vaseline you have on your hairline/neck/ears/etc otherwise you will stay green. I had to scrub & scrub with UD makeup remover stick the first time around to even be presentable for work. My skin stained green JUST from rinsing. My nails were green for days just from rinsing. My scalp was green for a bit too, but used the UD remover stick on when my hair parts. My contacts were stained green just from water that got in my closed eyes in the shower. My tub is still kinda green & I scrubbed it before I even got out & while I was still rinsing.

      Others: I think it smells fine. Easy to use if I was able to do it myself. No burning on the scalp at all. I don't feel or see any negative changes to my hair.

          Hello! Unicorn Hair dyes are semi permanent, which means they are designed to fade gracefully & they can't lighten your hair. They will only deposit color over your base hair color. Hope this helps! XOXO

          Hi There! For best results, we recommend starting with a lighter hair color, like light to medium blonde. On darker hair, color will show up as more of a tint! Always do a strand test first to ensure you're comfortable with the end result. We also offer sample Unicorn Hair packettes to make it easy for you. Have fun! :)
