No Commitment Hair Colour: Joico Color Butters

It's taken me most of my life to realize my hair is just hair. Up until my mid 20's, I didn't even want to cut my hair anything more than what was needed for a trim. But then I chopped it all off - or at least most of it. And I realized I didn't regret it! It definitely was short, but then hey (shocker) it grew back. Then last Halloween, I took the plunge and used temporary hair colour for the first time. It was terrifying at first - I was so worried about messing it up. But then I realized, so what? It's temporary! That stuff was only meant to last a shampoo or two, so it was definitely low risk.

Fast forward to now, Joico reached out with their 6 new Color Butters for me to try out. They last about 10 shampoos, so they're still pretty much no-commitment hair colour, but more commitment than the stuff I used last Halloween. I was a bit apprehensive, but I was also pretty excited to try something new. Who else gets bored of their hair? I figured this would be a fun (and temporary) way to change things up!

Turns out, these Joico Color Butters are literally the easiest hair colours to apply! I sectioned off my hair, putting most of it on the top of my head, leaving the hair below my ears loose. I had some gloves on-hand, so I pulled those out and put them on. Then just dipped my fingers into the tub (I used the Pink colour), and then ran my fingers over a small chunk of dry hair. You can use it on damp or dry hair, by the way. I went from front to back of my head, only doing sections of the hair pink (leaving sections in between colour-less). The idea was that I just wanted a hint of pink to pop out when I curled my hair. Then I just waited 5 minutes, and then showered! That was it!

I decided I wanted the colour on more of my hair, so I ended up redoing the process 2 more times to add to it. If you want more pastel colour, Joico recommends using their K-Pak Conditioner and mixing it directly with the Color Butters when applying to make the colour more pastel. I just used it in the shower as my normal conditioner, and that still seemed to keep the colour more pastel versus too vibrant. I didn't want to go bright pink, so that worked perfectly.

I actually originally tried the Titanium shade, because I thought that would look pretty cool, but for whatever reason it didn't seem to take. I did a test strand and then waited 5 minutes and washed my hair, but no colour was there after showering. I may try that again some other time, but I'm glad I ended up trying out the pink too because that one was awesome. I've had lots of compliments on it since.

One other thing to mention: the Color Butters themselves are very very conditioning! My hair smelled and felt absolutely amazing after using them. Super soft - way more than after my usual shampoo and conditioner. So definitely no damage like you'd expect from some temporary colours. Joico also says you can use these Color Butters to give your professional hair colour more vibrancy in between visits. That would certainly be handy!

The Colour Butters come in Pink, Titanium, Green, Purple, Red and Blue. What colour would you try?
