Most Helpful Positive Review I LOVE IT!!
I've used Unicorn Hair to dye my hair four times now. (See pics!) I have loved the result every single time!! Moonchild, Bunny & Strawberry Jam have been my colors of choice. My sister has also used the color Pony multiple times too & has always had an amazing result! She's done full head as well as highlights with it. I've done my 12 year old nieces hair twice with Chocolate Cherry, she's a natural brunette (Italian & Colombian) & her results are stellar too. The naturally lighter pieces near the bottom tips of her hair take on the color vibrantly & the rest or her hair has a hue to it that is particularly vibrant when she's in the sunshine. I could go on.. My 8 year old niece (natural light blonde) just had the tips of her hair done with Strawberry Jam/Pony & she is obsessed with it.
I have naturally dark blonde hair that I have highlighted. My hair is not bleached but it is lightened. You can see the starting point in the pictures for reference. I think it's important to point out that all hair pulls/deposits color differently and it's always a good idea to do a strand test. If you naturally have more warm tones the color will look different that someone with more ash in their hair. When I'm putting lighter colors onto my hair I leave them in for hours and when I am doing a really bright bold color, I tend to live it in for about an hour. Unless your hair is bleached snow white, you will not end up with any cotton candy hued colors. Keep that in mind. If you lighten your hair to an ashy silvery/blonde-you will not get pale baby pink. When I use bunny I get a gorgeous rose gold color. You must be starting with hair that is nearly pure white to get those super pastel colors. If your hair is dark-no matter how much dye you put on it pale pink won't show up. The vibrant, dark, bold colors will cover your brown with a gorgeous hue of color & are a great choice.
Color fades beautifully too! I'm a happy Unicorn Hair lover! Thanks Lime Crime & ULTA!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Very Mixed Review
Of the 27 colors, I used 18 of them. I listed below the ones I used, with their individual ratings. I dyed my hair on November 6 and I am writing this review on November 29th. I have washed my hair 3 times in that time period of 23 days. Also note that I let this dye sit on my hair for 3HOURS before rinsing it out.
5 Stars: Almost as good as the first dye
Leeloo - of the colors this has stayed the brightest and truest to when it was first dyed
Chocolate Cherry - Still very vibrant
Tweet - I am very surprised that this has stayed vibrant
4 Stars: Faded, but still strong
Anime - Still very bright, but seems duller
Blue Smke - Very true to its original color, but has faded
Valentine - Not as bright red as original, but still bright, looks a lot like the Chocolate Cherry when it fades
3 Stars: Bad Fade out
Strawberry Jam - Very light now, hard to make it out
Jello - Very pale, looks like mint faded
Dirty Mermaid - pale and hard to differentiate
Pony - Very pale and superpatchy fade out
2 Stars: Good at first, then faded out of existence
Kawaii - faded to a pale pink very quickly
Neon Peach - I loved this color out of the packet and after the rinse, but I have no idea where it is now
Bubblegum Rose - This faded to the color of what Bunny should have been, then disappeared after the second wash
Salad - faded much like Jello, just much faster
1 Star: What happened?
Bunny - Very patchy application and after first wash was completely gone
Mint Ice - Same as with Bunny, looked decent when applied, but after rinse it was barely noticeable and after first wash it was gone
NO Stars: Where is the pigment?
Cloud - When I put this on my hair, I did a wth moment. I could see the color in the dye, but when I put it on my hair, it's like it literally disappeared as I was rubbing it in. There was no color payout at all.
Moonchild - This was exactly the same as Cloud, only there was a very slight color tint
Reviewed by 442 customers Great color. Turned out exactly as pictured.
Jenn from Alaska
Love the color.
This is my third purchase, but I really love this line.
Shay from Macungie, PA
Please cover your work station, use gloves, and apply a cream barrier around the outer perimeter of your hairline and ears. Section your hair very well and make sure to coat each section very well on desired areas you want to color.
Genie is not a deep purple
JenJen from Trabuco Canyon, Ca
I normaly use ION brand from Sallys but decided to give this a try and the Genie is more pinkish purple, especially in natural lights. Cute package the jar is not as easy as the Ion tube you can squeeze. Also not as hydrating for my hair, it's okay but Ion leaves my hair silky smooth and this just colors it.
So far it's a 5 star!
Angelprit from Beaverton OR
I have a shoulder length hair with a shaved undercut, and it took the whole jar. So, if your hair is longer, get a second. I will be buying these in the future instead of what I was buying before.
Vibrant!!!!!! Color: Valentine
Cindy from Mundelein,IL
Overall, very vibrant and great color payoff!!! Super red and hasbt faded so far after 3 washes. I wash my hair with cold water (as you should with fashion colors) Someghing i've noticed is that it bleeds alot but im not very surprised as it is a bright red LOL. It did not damage my hair or anything either. Smelled awesome! Overall, I would recommend valentine :) Just keep in mind it will stain your tub!!!!!! Be prepared to wash unless you likw the bright pink tint lol
Alytle from Shelton, WA
I wanted pink in my hair for a really long time. I was going to go to a salon, but they were going to charge me a ridiculous amount of money. I bleached my hair with loreal quick blue bleach, and then used this. I applied it liberally throughout my hair, and let it sit for almost an hour. I mixed it with a small amount of conditioner, which I won't do next time. I almost used the full jar, but will use much less next time. It's been almost a week and it's slightly faded to a cotton candy pink but I love it! I will continue to use this stuff and experiment with different colors.
Charcoal Gray turned my hair green also!
sonnya from NV
I spent over a week lightening my hair to platinum so I could get the best color results. Finally used the Unicorn Hair color (which arrived super duper past my promised arrival date no thanks to Ulta) only to have my hair end up being dyed a turquoise/green color! I've only washed it twice since then and it has almost completely faded out already. Now I have this greenish/blonde/teal weirdness on my head. I emailed Lime Crime for a refund but no reply yet. I'll be returning the other unopened purple color I bought to Ulta asap since God knows what color that would actually make my hair! Only reason I gave it 1 star at all is that it smells nice and left my hair pretty soft.
Charcoal made my hair green
Tan918 from GA
The product is easy to apply and left my hair soft. Before I shampood again (about 3 days after applying) the color was great. After the 1st shampoo the color washed out a bit and turned a pretty emerald green. Not what I wanted, but not terrible. After the 2nd wash...it was a lighter emerald green. Now, after the 3rd wash...it is an ugly pea green and brown color. Ill definitely have to color it again. Prior to coloring my hair was bleached to a dark blonde color on the ends. I wouldnt recommend.
Do NOT buy
Mel from Iowa
DO NOT BUY. It bleeds, I've washed it 4x and it still bleeds - it smells good, that's the only pro. I have to wear my hair up now when I sleep or my neck will turn blue from my hair being on it.
Chocolate Cherry is beautiful!
Alison from Southern California
I have between medium and dark blonde hair and havent done anything with it in over 2 years. I decided to take the plunge and do something completely different and try Chocolate Cherry. I used a tub and a half of dye on my thick hair that goes just about mid back and I was able to get great coverage! I made sure to take my time and went in even smaller sections than the instructions suggest, which gave me more coverage. The dye process took about an hour and I would definitely recommend gloves. I also waited about 2 hours with the color to let it set. The results were great!! I'm so happy I went with this unique color. I will say, prepare for it to stain your skin, anything it touches in your bathroom and of course your pillowcase. it's worth it for me! But I thought I would mention it. I've washed it officially with shampoo once and the color has stuck pretty well! would definitely recommend :)
Well.. I am pink..
The pink elephant from Conroe, TX
I bought this one because I used another one of the lime crime dyes and this one... well, it worked. I am pink. My hair is pink. My tub is pink. My shower curtain is pink, my hands are pink. It smells fantastic as usual and my hair looks pretty. But I am now soaking my tub with Bleach, if you're going to use this.. BE AWARE it stains!!!
Bea from CA
I was surprised by how vibrant this color was! I used the product in Lipstick over my hair which is an ombre of medium brown to bleached blonde. The color showed up super bright on my bleached ends, and has added a wonderful tint to the medium brown sections closer to the roots. The color was super true to the images on the box and in the online swatch!!!
I was worried I hadn't bought enough for my whole head, but I ended up only using about 2/3 of the jar (I have thick hair that falls below my shoulders, but I also have a significant undercut on the back of my head - buying one jar is a good starting point in my opinion). The instructions enclosed give a range of time for how long to let the dye sit, and I ended up giving it a full 2 hours and was super pleased with the results! It also smelled great, and left my hair smelling wonderful.
One word of caution - I do recommend wearing gloves!! While the color came off my skin pretty easily, it stained my fingernails especially badly. Also, I have noticed the color fading fairly quickly after two washes, but it is only a semipermanent dye, and I will say that it has begun fading into a different, still lovely, color of pink, without any weird undertones.
Overall, definitely worth the price, and the color is absolutely great!
nc from ca
i used chocolate cherry on the bleached part of my hair. it's been a month and it has NOT washed out! i thought that this would last maybe a few days/weeks but the color is still very vibrant! will have to take a trip to the salon to get rid of it. would recommend if you're looking to safely dye your hair colorful and have it last a long time.
Lime crime hair dye❤️❤️❤️
Alexa from Logan Utah
Omg! First time using a semi permanent color and decided to try this one and a whole lot of different things it smell good and the consistency really good. My hair feels and looks great.
Misya from California
I decided I need to do some maintenance on my hair... bleach my roots and deposit a nice, dark pink color to blend in with my burgundy/red hair. My roots turned out a very bright yellow blonde and took the lime crime hair color really well! However, my hair doesn't seem to match any of the color swatches on the lime crime website and dye box. I chose the Strawberry Jam color and after applying the color and waiting for an hour... I got a really bright, almost a bubblegum kind of pink instead? I'm not sure if this is just a unique problem I'm running into, but I think I would recommend going for a shade of dye darker then you might intend to go. This way, while it might turn out dark... with each was you'll probably reach the desired color eventually. Either way, the dye did it's job and smells pretty good!
Do not buy!
Beth from Covington KY
This comes out in one wash! Total waste of money!
Bright and Lasting Color
Naomi from Canoga Park, CA
I got Bubblegum Rose, and with the yellowish/greenish base I started with, it came out somewhat coral. But it's so bright after just 40 minutes of leaving in, and I haven't had a pink that stays in so well with washing. Definitely recommend! Not only does my hair not feel damaged by it, it feels more hydrated.
Love unicorn hair!
Cassie from Salem oregon
This stuff is great. I usually use pony and i get so many compliments on it. I bought the other purple color to try but i haven't needed to do it again yet with the great purple conditioner they have too.
Best Hair Dye
Anna from Sioux City, IA
I purchased this dye in the shade "Pony" after having troubles with another brand of dye not staying in my hair. When using this, I didn't bleach beforehand (and haven't dyed my hair in years). I am so surprised at how vibrant it turned out! I love it so much 😭💜
One shade doesn't work
Riley from Fairview heights il
I recently bought the shade cloud from my local store and I spent about an hour putting the dye all over my head and left it for over an hour like it said to if you wanted a deeper color and I washed it out and only my roots and the ends of my hair were dyed. it said it would work on pale blonde to platinum hair and that's exactly what I have but it only showed up on the platinum parts. And to make things worse, after spending $15 or more on the dye it washed out after a day of having it in my hair. I can't say that all the shades are bad but cloud isn't a good one :(
Best hair dye
Rubi from Ontario
Its smells so good! It's not harmful at all Ive bought the pony and anime and let me just say they work so good on your bleached hair I've had been buying this products for 1 year now, and so far so good
DO NOT BUY

It did nothing. I've been dying my hair for years and I've never had a hair dye that literally did nothing.
Alexus from Ellensburg
I read things about this turning a weird green color and they are absolutely right. I honestly thought i messed up and ordered the wrong color. My hair color was at the very least a light blonde if not platinum. at first it looks like a good charcoal gray but as soon as my hair completely dried I saw the dark green tint my entire head had. I even let the dye sit for 2 hours to hopefully get a better color but nope. this is the first color I've tried from this brand but I dont see myself trying any others. the reviews saying to stick to arctic fox are right.
Alejandra from Lacey
Was hoping to get artic fox but they were out so decided on this brand, my daughter loved it we got the shade anime, it's bright and vibrant she loves it.
This product was easy for a temp summer change!
Jaz from Chico, ca
I used this on my highlighted hair. My natural hair color is black and had blonde highlights in it. The pink went right over the blonde (which is what I wanted) and it's so vibrant.
