I’ve been asked about a million times how long it takes to dye my hair…
On average, it takes me about 40 minutes to apply the dye, and another 45 or more to let it sit before I rinse it out. Which leads me to an honest confession: I’m lazy and I don’t usually want to keep up with maintaining my hair color. Seriously, in terms of upkeep, I’m not the best candidate for coloring my hair. That means I usually push it off until I absolutely need to do it. a.k.a. I look like a bum and need to get my sh*t together. So when I was contacted by Aloxxi to try their newest hair product Instaboost: Conditioning Color Masque, I couldn’t pass up the chance to try something new that might take a fraction of the time it usually takes me to color my hair.
Why less time?
Aloxxi’s Instaboost claims that after applying the product, you only need to keep it on for 3 to 5 minutes for the color to work its magic into your strands. What! Basically, this would mean that I would shave off at least 40 minutes of wait time to redye my hair. Also, these products are applied to damp hair, which means the product will take less time to apply because it will glide on faster, saving me 30 minutes of dye time. These colorful hair masks also condition and nourish your hair, while adding whatever magical shade you desire, simultaneously. Uhm, yes, please!
Why I love this…
With every hair wash, my dye will slowly run out, leaving my hair a little less vibrant than it was before. Since I go such long stretches of time procrastinating my redye sessions, Aloxxi’s Instaboost proves to be the happy medium I need to up the anti and redye my color quickly and beautifully. This means that my hair can always look good, no matter how long it has been since my last “real dye”. These colored hair masks are perfect for anyone like me who needs a huge pick-me-up in between dyes, or anyone who currently has no dyed colors in their hair but want to easily add unique shades in a snap! Oh, and did I mention that it’s cruelty-free? 🐇
I decided to approach this dye-like experience similar to my normal hair dying routine by mixing different colors in order to find the right shades for my hair. Aloxxi was kind enough to send me all 4 shades of the colors I typically use to dye my hair, so I am really happy that I had the opportunity to try out all of the colors that are most authentic to me! Aloxxi currently carries 8 different Instaboost shades that you can have fun and experiment with.
How I mixed my colors…
In order to achieve the color tones I currently have on each side of my hair, I mixed Aquamarine Dream with True Blue for one side, and Pink, Please and Purple Reign for the other. I applied the colors onto damp hair after washing and conditioning with several of Aloxxi’s other products (seriously, thank you Aloxxi)!
With each time you use this product, it builds up the color intensity in your hair even more. After just one use, I noticed my hair had already started to regain its colors! It took me just 10 minutes to apply all of the product to my hair, and then I waited only 5 more minutes for all of it to soak up. That means I saved a total of 70 minutes to redye my hair! Plus, my hair is really soft after using these masks. Applying to wet hair is honestly great because it allows the products to glide on beautifully without my hair getting all clumped together.
