Recently there have been lots of celebs rocking a lavender tinge or a baby pink wash to their locks.
Looks fab but makes me a little nervous on my own hair.
Well if your new year resolution is to step out of your hair comfort zone then check out Kiko's new hair shadow.
I love the packaging for these. 9g plastic spheres with a twist off lid revealing a domed pad of coloured powder.
The size makes these an easy product to slip in your bag for touch ups and the spherical shape makes it easy to hold in your palm.
The powders are a temporary colour that you can add to you hair to change up your look to match an outfit or your makeup.
They come in these three colours of neon pink, deep lavender and bright blue.
The pigments are strong as you can see but if the vibrancy is too much you can simply put less on and it will be more subtle. Likewise you can layer it up and it will be a strong wash of colour.
Grab a section of hair and run the colour along the lengths or just at the tips. Colour powder comes off easily onto the hair. I would pop a towel around your shoulders just to catch any powder drop down.
If you twist the lock of hair over the colour it will pick up more pigment.
I applied a layer of the lavender to the tips of my ponytail and then brushed a comb through it to soften.

On a dark hair colour you may need to build the colour up a little more. On highlighted hair be aware that it may need a couple of washes to get it all out as highlighted hair tends to absorb colour more.
On coloured hair I would advise testing a discreet section first to make sure you are happy with how it washes out first.
Each colour is £8.90.
I'm not sure how this would perform in a British downpour (it's only a powder after all). Getting caught in the rain may result in looking like Jason and his technicolour dream coat.
To avoid this Kiko recommend their hair fixer (£7.90). It's a 75ml bottle of hairspray really. This will fix the hair, lock in the pigment and makes it rainproof although I haven't had an opportunity to try it in the rain yet.
After looking at the ingredients in this I can't see any reason why it would be different to spraying your bog standard hairspray over the colour.
I really like these. A bit of fun to brighten up January and if you don't like it, just wash it out.
