Cosmopolitan wrote FULL ANALYSIS on Miley Cyrus‘ blue hair controversy. Miley tweeted: ‘My hurrr ain’t blue. That shits PLATINUM. went heavy on the shimmer lights.’ When your hair is as bleach blonde as hers, it’s super porous. And porous hair soaks in everything. So, when you’re using these pigmented purple formulas, such as Clairol Shimmer Lights, which really does work wonders when it comes to canceling out any brasiness in your blonde ‘do, it’s important to remember these three things:
1. If you bleach your hair constantly, when you wash it with a purple shampoo and conditioner, saturate it with water first so that the H2O fills up any holes in your hair shaft. That way it won’t be as porous and soak up the colored sudser and conditioner.
2. Use both the pigmented shampoo and conditioner to get the full benefit of the formulas. They’re meant to work together, instead of leaving one of them on for a longer time period in hopes of cancelling out any yellow tones.
3. Don’t leave the formulas on longer than the instructions say, and make sure you rinse them out thoroughly (unless you want Miley’s awesome effect, of course). These kinds of shampoos and conditioners are highly pigmented and super powerful, so you want to be sure to follow the instructions they come with to get the desired results.
