Blue hair don’t care thanks to Milani’s Color streaks

I’m not a gal that appreciates her natural hair color. Which sounds oh so awful but seriously…my naturally dark brown hair is just boring. Not that I need hot pink hair to feel alive but come on…a little hair color ain’t never hurt no one. I was super excited when Milani released their Limited Edition Color Streaks.

These were a July 2011-exclusive item but I’ve still been seeing them in stores so you may be able to grab a few. I believe they retail for around $7.99 or so. Simply put, these Color Streaks are hair mascaras.

These little temporary tubes of hair dye can add a pop of color to your locks with just one stroke. Or ten. My belief is products like these really aren’t made for my hair type. But considering that my hair type is pretty specific, I don’t get offended by it. These are probably easier for guys and gals with straighter hair. That wasn’t going to stop me for giving it a try!

After some stained fingers….

I had a few blue locs.

Which eventually turned green after a day at the beach.

I absolutely loved the look. Then again, I’m the same gal that has dyed her hair red, orange and purple. The color washed out right after one wash. I wouldn’t call it a “dye” because it certainly isn’t as toxic as one. But if you’re desirous of some quick color and can still find these, I’d say scoop ’em up.

And I know what you’re thinking…this can’t be used on the lashes. The consistency is slightly water-y and there is a memo on the tube that says not to do. Granted I’m a rule breaker but I don’t mess with the ojos. 8)

    I dyed my hair red, and I love it! It’s not a natural red, it’s really bright. I’ve tried those types of things before, and they always leave my hair feeling stiff. Did it do that to yours?

    • Brittany

      Nope. It didn’t leave my hair stiff. Then again, my locs are naturally hard.

  • Interesting. I had no idea about this product. Not sure if it is for me or not, but maybe I would give it a try in a different color.

    • Brittany

      Yeah, blue hair color isn’t for most people. LOL! They have other colors that aren’t so wild.

    Wow B!
    I’ve been a fan of yours since before you locked up and your hair is REALLY growing! makes me consider locks more and more! *heads over to locrocker for more!*

    • Brittany

      Awww, thanks, darlin’. I absolutely love my locs. If you’re ready to start the journey, Loc Rocker is a great place to go to be inspired.

  • Samantha

    I have never seen these! What’s stores were they in? Maybe I can get lucky and find one… I would LOVE this to try out a few color streaks in my hair. I can’t decide between blue and purple, this could help out.

    • Brittany

      This was a summer-exclusive selection. I don’t think they’re around any more. :(

  • corelle

    Where do you buy this?!? I have to have it!

    • Brittany

      This was a limited edition item only sold at CVS.

  • Heyya :) Was just wondering how long does the blue stay in for?? x

    • Brittany

      I suppose it depends on your hair type and how often you wash your hair.
