      My daughter and I tried this after receiving a free sample. We followed the instructions twice, but with zero results. The color just washed right out. Only after watching the video on the Ulta website did we see that it's meant for pre-bleached hair. That should be clearly stated on the packaging.

        I bought the tint sext. I love the color. However after leaving the dye in for the full 2 hours, there was barely any color. It darkened my hair a bit, but no rose color came through and it faded within 3 days.

            I got the color Sushi. It smelled good and deposited well. I just chose a color that didn't look as good on me as I thought.

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

              I have used countless Unicorn Hair shades and have had success with every single one. I've been using the dyes for over a year now but this is the first time I strictly went with a tint on its own, no full-coverage shade mixed in. It...is....gorgeous! The photo I added was after one cold shampoo a few days after coloring, natural daylight, no filter. With the tints, they are MEANT TO BE PASTEL AND LIGHT. So they WON'T work an anything darker than platinum hair, and they WILL fade faster especially in hot water. Keep them in for at least an hour if not 2. If you aren't going to follow the guidelines then you aren't going to be happy, but that's not the product's fault. I was able to only use 1.25 jars to get all my hair too! This is one of my fave looks in the 8 years I've been doing rainbow/fantasy colors.

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

                I was very disappointed in this hair dye. I used both the colors bunny and sext and I felt like they didn't do much to dye my hair. I left the dye in my hair for 2 hours and it left a hint of color but that's about it. Didn't change anything and it didn't look like the color in the jar. Definetly a let down after hearing really good reviews. I won't be purchasing this brand of hair dye ever again :(

                  Most of the time you have to leave it on for at least three hours to get the real vibrant color. And if you want to see what it will look like on your hair color, go to lime crime's actual website because they have swatches for brown, medium blonde and platinum blonde. I would highly reckoned going to their website to see which colors are tints and which are full coverage, full coverage works best. You just have to be slightly educated on their hair dye to get the best results.

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

                    I am genuinely upset this product has so many negative reviews, because it's exactly what I have wanted for a long time. It's similar to Color Butter or Overtone, but it comes in so many more colors. It's versatile, smells amazing, it's super gentle, and best of all, it lets me play with fun colors over the weekend and then come back to work on Monday with my normal blonde. Sext is my favorite shade so far. I have also tried Bunny which is very pretty. I have a jar of Oyster ready to go. Personally, I like to make a kind of ombre look by putting my hair in a ponytail, saturating the ponytail with the product, letting down the ponytail, and run a little bit more color through the top and around my face. Then I put it up again and wait at least the full 2 hours. (Once I fell asleep with Bunny on and it was fine. I mean, it's just color depositing conditioner so I don't see the big deal, but obviously you should read the directions and mind any allergies you have.)

                    So I've gotten a full coverage from lime crime before and saw the tints and I'm a huge sucker for some peachy hair!! I saw sushi and knew that's what i was gonna do and now I get called princess peach or miss peach and I LOVE IT. truly the best ❤️ I was able to lift my hair from dark brown with purple to a good level of bleach blonde hair and I used 1 1/2 jars of sushi on my mid length hair and I left it in about an hour and got very bright results.

                        Hey There! The Unicorn Hair Full coverage shades will work on lighter-to-white hair. For darker greys, we recommend consulting a professional for pre-bleaching prior to application of Unicorn Hair. Give it a try! XOXO

                        Thanks for asking! The life cycle of your hair color depends on 3 factors: depth of shade, condition of hair, & how often you wash it. You can prolong the life of your color by using gentle shampoos for colored hair, washing in cool water or start with a deeper or more vibrant shade! XO
