The concept of brunettes achieving unicorn hair without bleach is no longer as mythical as actual unicorns. Splat assured us that could be a reality last year. Now, Lime Crime is giving us another way to do so.
Its latest collection of bold hair dyes was formulated specifically for brown hair. Past Unicorn Hair shades only showed up on bleached blonde hair. No lightening is needed for the Lime Crime Dark Unicorn collection, though. Plus, the new hair dyes are even more low-maintenance than the latest rose-gold and violet-copper balayage looks. The hardest part is waiting around with dye in your hair while it processes. After that, it will fade out without any weird tones.
After working on the formula for three years, Lime Crime was finally able to make this semi-permanent formula happen. It will debut with four jewel-toned shades next week. My favorite of the bunch is Sea Witch, which is a teal that reminds me of a mermaid’s tail.
If you want to get into the fall fantasy, try Chestnut, a maroon, or Squid, an eggplant purple.
There’s also Charcoal, which is exactly what it sounds like… a charcoal. The smoky gray shade that’s been trending on Instagram is basically the anti-unicorn hair shade.
Of course, the latest colors aren’t going to be as vibrant as the other dyes Lime Crime offers. The vegan cosmetic company also notes that it works best on light to medium brown hair. My hair could be considered a dark chocolate, so I’m curious to see if the new Lime Crime hair dyes will work on it. You might just have to stay tuned to find out.
You’ll be able to shop the Lime Crime Dark Unicorn collection starting Tuesday, October 24 for $16 on limecrime.com. In the meantime, you can temporarily color your hair neon shade instantly with GoodDyeYoung’s brand-new Poser Paste.
