Want to try pink hair? Worried you won’t like it? Me too . . . and I found the perfect way to try it out without having to commit to more than a few days at a time. I came across oVertone after finding myself down the rabbit hole searching Pinterest one day and was super-intrigued. They were out of the pastel pink I wanted, so I just ordered the vibrant pink and planned on diluting it with my favorite conditioner until I got the color I wanted. It worked great, and I think I even saved some money by doing it this way since it lasts longer.

Nail The Pink Hair Color Trend With oVertone & IGK

I mixed the oVertone with my new favorite conditioning treatment, Colleen Rothschild’s Quench & Shine Restorative Mask (it smells AMAZING) until I got the color I desired, then applied it to damp hair. (You can add it directly to dry hair for more intense color absorption.) I rinsed after about 10 minutes and then mixed these IGK purple drops with my regular styling cream to tone down any brassiness in my hair. These drops can be added to any shampoo, conditioner or styling cream you want, and are awesome for toning yellow out of blonde hair—I don’t know what I would do without this product now!

My hair was pretty much completely back to normal within three washes, although there were hints of pink where my highlights were lightest. I like how the color gives a unique tone to blonde hair, even as it fades out. I just received the Rose Gold Complete System (that comes with a daily conditioner and the deep conditioner) and am excited to see how it works. The rose gold also comes in a formula for brown hair if you have darker hair and want to try!

Has anyone tried any of the other colors?? Share your pics with us!

  1. The pink looks beautiful on you! I was pastel pink for over two years and loved it. The only reason I stopped was because I developed an allergy to the lightener (my natural color is dark blond). So now I’m purple and learning to love more vibrant colors. I used to use overtone in between my salon visits but my hairstylist hated it. Something about their colors lasting too long within the hair shaft and effecting her color in an unsavory way. I eventually ended up using salon color at home and mixing it myself. But if you don’t have a nazi stylist like mine, I think Overtone is a great way to achieve fantasy colors. Have fun with it! My hair is a hobby and I do it because after my second kid I needed something FUN and just for me.

  2. I regularly use oVertone’s extreme orange and I love it! Even when it fades it’s a lovely color and I get compliments on it all the time. It’s also great for mixing colors. 10/10 would recommend to anybody looking to try out some crazy hair colors.

  3. I posted a before and after on my Instagram (should be tagged here but if not I’m @KatieinBkln). I have very dark brown hair and tried the purple formula. Started with the deep conditioner, which really gave a nice subtle purple-y “glow” to my whole head. Since then I have used the “daily” conditioner every couple of days and I’d say it’s VERY subtle–mostly just makes my hair darker/drowns out my natural highlights. So if you’re a dark brunette, I’d say go for a deep conditioning formula, and don’t expect the same intensity that a blonde would get–your whole head won’t be bright purple/pink, but you will have some cool undertones.

  4. I am really interested in this! But my question is: does it rub off on your pillowcases or white shirts? Or if you get caught in the rain and are wearing a light color, do you think the color would transfer to clothing?

  5. So far that has not been my experience–no rubbing off on fabrics at all. The runoff when I shampoo is slightly colored, but as long as I’ve rinsed it well it does take shampoo to remove (i.e., not just water).

    I did switch to drying my hair with an old T-shirt instead of using a towel, however. The shirt is dark so I don’t know if it has gotten any color on it, but I think it’s probably a wise choice for fresh out of the shower/right after applying the product to use a shirt and not a nice towel.

  6. I’ve tried their rose gold for brunettes, and it works okay. It works a lot better if you can apply it to your dry hair, but you need to let it sit for way more than 10 minutes, especially if you have fresh ‘virgin’ locks that don’t have any dye, like mine. If I had the time to let it soak into my dry hair for 30+ minutes, I got much more pink out of it. The problem is, you have to wash and dry your hair first, then put on the pink stuff, then rinse, then dry again, so it’s kind of an all-afternoon adventure if you want the color to show up. It doesn’t rub off on anything once it’s soaked in, although it will rub off on your towel no matter how hard you try to rinse it out in the shower. (The dye washes out of the towel just fine.) A tip for those who really like pink: the rose gold for brunettes will only get you so far, so grab a sample size of the vibrant red to use every other wash. You’ll get a deeper burgundy-pink result. I did find that the color built up a bit more over multiple washes if I was consistent, and that it hung around longer on my more damaged ends. 🙂 My Insta is @nicolebutler, and about 6 rows down I have a Valentines photo that shows my hair looking kinda pinkish from this routine.
