Kevin Murphy's 'Colour Bug'.

Kevin Murphy's Colour Bug - £12.95 via Amazon 

I bought this months ago but never got round to photographing it properly and therefore reviewing it. I really love it though and what with Summer approaching and the dip-dye trend settling in just about everywhere, I thought it was a great time to talk about it!

The colour bug is a round ball like product with a pan of product which allows you to temporarily colour your hair! Haven't got blonde hair? DON'T CLICK OFF THIS REVIEW! Fear no more, as the Colour Bug was invented to colour any hair colour no matter how dark it is! He recommends styling your hair with some kind of wet product, maybe a hair spritz of some sort first, so the product is more vibrant and lasts on the hair a little longer, sealed in with some hairspray afterwards.

The product itself is a chalk like substance which can get messy i.e do not do it near a white countertop or wearing nice clothes (exactly what I did!). The way you use it is by rubbing your hair against the pan which as you can imagine is quite messy itself meaning the product falls everywhere so I recommend standing in the bathroom with a towel around your shoulders. I was worried it would leave staining but it washed out straight away and didn't leave any tints to my hair which I was really impressed with. You can see what it looks like once applied here (bottom right).

Overall, I really recommend the Colour Bug. I have seen them advertised a lot in a few issues of Company magazine lately. They are a great, fun way to dye your hair a crazy colour without damage and commitment!

Have you tried the Colour Bug? Will you be rushing out to try it anytime soon? I would love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Well this looks exciting! Did it damage your hair at all? I just had a gander on their amazon page...love the product design it's so stylish. I blame you if I buy everything they've ever made just so my bathroom looks better ;)

    Love Dannii

    1. Nope it didn't damage at all! I thought it would considering you're brushing it up and down against the hair, but it was fine! Haha, let me know if you buy anything! :)

    1. Nope it works on dark hair! The 'harder' you rub it on the more vibrant it is. It's really good! :]

  6. This sounds awesome! Although I already have hair dyed bright red, if they had a blue I'd be tempted to do the ends with that! x

    1. Not really. It just looks like normal hair, like it's been dyed. It's powdery when you put it in but that's why KM recommends using a wet product first (which I didn't for reference!). He also recommends straightening your hair after to lock in the colour!

  8. Does it like rub off during the day? Like rub onto your clothes?? I really like the look of it, but I dont want it to come off if people or myself touch it, and I dont want it transferring onto my clothes..! xxxx

    1. It has slightly stained my Levi shorts, but that's down to me applying it with clothes on and letting the product fall onto my clothes. I wouldn't wear it with light clothing, definitely not white anyway! But it is recommended to use a wet product (I didn't!) and hair straighteners after to lock in the colour :)

  10. I've been thinking about getting pink and lilac permanently through the ends of my hair, but this might be a good idea to see if I like it first! xx
