Colour FX Punk Spray
Advantages: good for fancy dress, good concept
Disadvantages: can be hard to control and therefore messy, can rub off on pillows
I purchased this a while ago as part of an effect for fancy dress. Ive only used it twice and not all over only as streaks in my hair (im quite pale and it would look stupid if i did it all over my hair!). It stood out a lot in my hair with it being a medium to dark blonde. I dont think it'd stand out quite as much on darker hair.
Its a great concept and can be quite fun to use but there were a few problems i came up against. These being:
* The lid and nozzle are a little stiff. I find with the lid you have to pull quite hard slightly squeeze it to yank it off. The nozzle is also a little stiff to press which isnt ideal if your going all over your hair.
*It isnt all that easy to control. You'll need a towel over your shoulders or perhaps wear an old robe u dont mind staining pink!
*It comes off easily. By this i dont mean it comes out your hair but much like fake tan for instance it can rub off onto your pillows if you dont wash it off before you go to bed.
It does wash out easily with a shampoo and rinse and didnt stain my hair at all. If your applying it in streaks I'd reccomend you get a friend (if you trust them enough) to help do it. Also do it in the bathroom where everything is wipe clean. I somehow managed to get some of mine on the floor and sink. Also it may be worth a test run first to see how it comes off in your hair as you might not like the colour it creates and then youd have to wash and redry your hair!
I got this spay quite a while ago so had a quick look online for availability and prices. Not that many places stock it it seems. You can however buy it (alongside a variety of other colours) on the colour fx website (http://www.colour-fx.com/) for £3.59.
Summary: A good concept but could be better.
