Reinbow Crazy Colours
Advantages: Vibrant shades, lots of colours, conditioning, ease of use
Disadvantages: fades as does most vibrant shades
I have used crazy colours for a while now on and off from being about 15 years old and even though I have tried other brands such as star gazer and directions I always go back to the renbow crazy colours. Crazy colour is basically a semi-permanent hair colour range that is filled with lots of wacky and vibrant shades which can be used all over the hair or in sections of the hair to create funky flashes.
Can everybody use crazy colour:
Crazy colour is best used on bleached hair that is as light as possible. When using on bleached hair the colour will be extremely vibrant and daring. This product won't change dark hair but may slightly tinge lighter hair. Blonde pre-lightened hair is the best canvas for using crazy colours.
What does crazy colour look like?
All crazy colours come in a pink squeezable plastic bottle which has a pink cap on the top which can be easily lifted to dispense the colour. The bottle looks funky with the crazy colour block writing and the colour you are purchasing will always be printed on the front. You can purchase crazy colour on line or from stores such as sally's. A crazy colour will set you back about £4.00. Depending on the length of the hair you usually get one application from the bottle but for longer hair another bottle will be required.
How to use crazy colour:
As I mentioned before crazy colour works best on pre-lightened (bleached) hair. It does not need any peroxide to work hence it being a conditioning semi-permanent colour that will add condition to the hair not damaging it. You start by washing your hair and using shampoo only then towel drying the hair. Once towel drying has finished you are ready to apply the crazy colour. You will need gloves as this product will stain whatever it comes in contact with including sinks and clothing. You will need to purchase gloves as they don't come with the product; I would usually get mine in a box cheap enough from supermarkets. The crazy colour is very thick in consistency which makes application easier as it doesn't tend to get everywhere if care is taken. Apply the colour all over the hair rubbing in numerous times to ensure all the hair is covered. You could also comb the colour through.
Once all the hair is coated the colour has to be left on for 15-30 minutes. I always left mine on for the full 30 minutes to get the best vibrant results. I just think if you are brave enough to go for a crazy colour in the first place you might as well get the best out of it. After 30 minutes are up the colour is rinsed from the hair very well.
After using crazy colour you will notice that your new vibrant shade has a gorgeous shine to it and it will feel super soft. If this is your first crazy colour then you may be in for a shock as the colours are so vibrant they do look beautiful. As with all vibrant colours crazy colours do fade rather quickly which isn't really a problem since the colour is not damaging, you can use it as much as you like. There is however some tips you can follow to keep the colour a little bit brighter for longer. Please see below.
Keeping the colour bright:
Do not use an anti-dandruff shampoo when using crazy colour as these are known to strip the hair and will fade your colour out almost immediately.
Before shampooing the hair, give it a blast of cold water as this will seal the cuticle, trapping the colour.
Shampooing the hair regular can also fade the colour quick so try and leave hair as long as possible before washing.
Use a hat in direct sunlight as this will fade the colour straight from the hair.
Swimming is another problem when using crazy colour as the chlorine will also fade the hair.
What if I hate my crazy colour?
Crazy colour can be faded by doing the opposite of the above. Wash hair regularly with an anti-dandruff shampoo, use hot water. Once faded enough you can re colour your hair with a shade you desire or re colour with a base shade to take it back to the original colour.
Removing crazy colour from the skin:
If you get any crazy colour onto the skin, it can be tricky to get off so I recommend wiping immediately, however it still may stain but you can generally remove this by using at home products such as tooth paste or alcohol.

As you can see there really is a shade for everybody. I personally love pinkissimo, fire and hot purple. If you are choosing a crazy colour then think about how you would like the end result to look. These colours are so versatile you can create any effects such as dip dye, full head, flashes, multi coloured sections and the list goes on.
I used to do my crazy colour about once every week as i wash my hair a lot due to it being greasy and as soon as i could see it fade i wanted it back to full vibrant colour so i would say it takes a bit of keeping it up for it to look its best but if you have the time then i would certainly recommend this brand, in fact if i decide to go a bit crazy in the future i would only use the renbow brand.
Summary: A great semi-permanent colour for the bold and the brave
