    Default Does anyone have experience with Pravana or Directions hair dye (preferably both)?

    I want to try either Directions in Dark Tulip or Pravana in Vivid Red.
    Does one bleed less than the other? I want one that will stop bleeding within a week hopefully because I'm attempting to get a job as a lifeguard and I would have to swim on a semi-weekly basis or so. I don't want to dye the pool red! Is one more permanent? I'm aware that they are totally different shades but they're both gorgeous colors I'd love on my hair.

    This is my hair now after three hennas. It's a solid medium brown I'd say, does anyone who started with something close to my color have any before and after pictures? Thanks!

    Your hair colour is gorgeous already!

    I use Directions colour a lot. Just had vermilion red and currently have plum. I wouldn't really recommend them for hair that isn't pre-lightened. I tried it on my dark brown hair and it did nothing. As for the Pravana I have no experience of it, sorry!

    I dyed over my hennaed hair today using a combination of directions tulip and rubine. Definitely shows up on my hennaed hair which was quite a dark auburn. It's not really vivid though - it's a dark burgundy.

    So far I'm predicting it will bleed quite a bit. I spent a good 10 minutes trying to rinse all the dye out and still had pink run off. Warning you now that this stuff stains everything. I had to spend a good 10 minutes scrubbing my shower clean. It also stained my scalp hot pink.

    I tried doing streaks of Rose Red on my coarser nape hairs this past winter and it didn't do anything - sort of a gloss that washed out really fast and was a PITA to do.

    I've heard people say that there are better temp dyes, but this was what I remembered from the good old days of many different hair colors, so I figured I would try it.

    Your hair is really pretty and the color is gorgeous!
