Sunset Hair Using Colour Freedom Orange Sorbet, Mystic Purple and Crimson Red

So last week I had my hair dyed in the salon and unfortunately the colour only lasted one wash, not entirely sure why but I believe it’s something to do with a bleach based product being used and not neutralising properly before a colour was put on, apparently as I have natural red tones in my hair, my hair is more likely to do weird things like this. Anyway, it just meant that I had to dye my own hair sooner than planned and boy am I glad I did!

Once again, it was up to the wonderful Knight & Wilson Colour Freedom collection which you can find in Superdrug and is currently on offer, so at the moment the cheapest fashion colour you can buy! I used Orange Sorbet, Crimson Red and Mystic Purple for this look, you can read reviews of all of these and more in my hair category which you can get to via the link at the top of this page or in the sidebar.

I was feeling super inspired by the Sunset Hair trend that is around at the moment which is all about blending reds, pinks, purples and oranges. I haven’t seen too many people sporting this colour and thought it was a simple way to have a unique look. As we were doing it at home and Miz was taking control of the hard work, we did a simple version by blocking the colours into layers.

The underneath we dyed Colour Freedom Mystic Purple, they the main head of hair Crimson Red and my fringe Orange Sorbet with a few red flecks through it.

I love the deepness of the purple and have used this all over before and the orange is a great simple orange. As usual, the textures are nice and thick to work with and a nourishing base of Argan Oil and Shea Butter to keep hair nice and soft. You can find my other posts about Colour Freedom here.

Anyway, I LOVE the outcome and hopefully it’ll last longer now my hair has neutralised and had a rest. Let me know if you have any questions, always happy to help here or via Twitter @JayneKitsch

  1. Hello, your hair looks lovely! I was wondering how long this product has lasted, washes-wise in your hair? I’ve been wanting to go a salmon/coral colour for a while but am yet to find something which has lasted more than a few washes.

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Rachel, lasting power really depends on a number of things it’s not just about the hair dye. Dye sticks longer to hair that is in good condition and treated well, I’d recommend using a sulphate free and silicone free hair care range, I really like SheaMoisture’s Superfruit Complex. One of the main problems is that to get a pastel colour (and some brights) you need your hair to go white blonde first and this is a very damaging process, which then can make it difficult for a colour to stay in. In my hair a pastel shade only lasts a few washes and needs to be topped up regularly. I managed to maintain orange tones for longer as I kept topping up the colour and used suitable products, didn’t wash my hair often and had healthy hair to start with. If you want to avoid strong bleach you could try Scott Cornwall’s Decolour Stripper instead. If your hair is already light, you might be able to go a bright colour without bleaching, so good to research this too. My recommended hair dye brands for brights would be Colour Freedom and Directions.
