{{Review}} Pravana Chroma Silk Vivids

Hello my lovely cookies! 

Yep, don't rub your eyes off, another blog entry by me! So fast! ;)
But I wanted to share a big thing with you guys. If you love bright colored hair as much as me, you should listen to me carefully ;)

Some time ago I watched different YouTube videos about good hair color brands. And in the American section of these videos, quiet some people mentioned this brand: Pravana. 
So I looked it up on the internet and found an ebay seller where I can buy this magical stuff from. 
And I ordered it! I was looking for a dark gray hair dye, which I couldn't find among the brands I can buy easily here in Germany. So I thought: Why not? Let's give it a try!

Here is the link of the ebay seller I got my color from:

But now you are curious about the product itself and why I am so so pleased with it. So read on!

The product:

One tube contains 3 fl.oz or 90ml of pure color. Its a ready-to-use hairdye, so you can use it straight out of the tube (Although, to create pastels, you can mix it with conditioner ;D)

On the Pravana website they say this hair color is: 

       - Parabene-free
       - Phtalates-free
       - not tested on animals 
I think these are the 3 most important bits of information. If you want all of them, please feel free to visit the website :) 

This color range has 10 colors in it: Silver, Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Magenta, Violet, Green, Blue and Wild Orchid.
Also, as Directions etc, you can dilute them with conditioner and mix them together with another color to create your custom shade.

They now also have a Pastel and a Neon Color range (the last range as florescent glow ;D).
So there is a color that suits EVERY taste ;) 

Also, the main ingredients (according to the website) are: 
     - Silk Amino Acids: Act as a color carrier to help drive color deep into hair's cortex
     - Keratin Amino Acids: Strengthen hair's fiber and help color adhere to the hair shaft

The price for one tube at the ebay seller is 5,90 pounds or about 7,43€ excluding packaging etc. This depends on your home country etc. The seller is located in Poland. 

I know, much information. But my lovely cookies should not be uninformed ;) 

My opinion (Application, Smell, longevity etc):

All in all I payed 22€ for two tubes of the hair dye. I ordered one before, I payed about 13€ for that. 
You may say the price is a bit high for such a hairdye. A tube of La Riche Directions is about 6-7€ in Germany. BUT it's worth it. 

The application is as easy as with Directions, right out of the tube and onto your hair with it ;) The consistency is a bit thicker, but not as gel-like as directions. It's very easy to handle. I used for may hair part that I wanted to be silver 3/4's of one tube. 

I must admit that you have to like the smell of the hairdye. Its some sort of sweet, a bit floral, a bit herbal smell. I can't describe it properly. But it definetely smells different to Directions and this smell stays in your hair till the next wash.

And now the best point: How long-lasting is this color?
It's incredible! This color does not really fade in a really big amount of hair washes. Your water is almost not stained by the color, so you see its not fading that much. I love that! 
And if we're honest: If I have to buy less tubes of hairdye made by Pravana, the higher price saves me money! I don't have to re-do my hair that often, so it's cheaper than Directions!

All in all, I love this product! The only con is the availability in Germany. I know, it a hair dresser's brand but you can not buy it at German hair dresser's supplies. Unfortunately. 

Now, I show you some pictures. (Also according to La Riche Direction's Silver Toner)
                                       Sectioning my hair                          Applied the hair dye

                                  The finished result! (BTW I love my violet to red ombre fringe :3)

                                      And the result made by Directions "Silver Toner"

The gray I achieved with Pravana Chromasilk Vivids "Silver" is EXACTLY the color I was searching for. I am so so so pleased!
And after I used up all of my Directions tubes (thats why I have some sort of Ombre in my fringe) I will also buy other colors by Pravana! 

Do you know the brand Pravana? What are your opinions about this brand? Write it in the comments below! 

See you soon hopefully!

Hi ! :)
Your post is really interesting and I really like your style !

I have two questions about the ebay seller you mentioned :
- Is he really reliable?
- Did you get any unpleasant surprise with your products?

Thanks for your reply. :)

First of all: Thank you so much ^////^

And now to your questions.
1. I think the ebay seller is reliable. My products arrived me more than in time, I had no trouble with it.
2. There wasn't any unpleasant surprise. The Box the hairdye comes in was a bit damaged, but this was the fault of our beloved and gentle postman.

I hope this helps you a little bit ;) of you have more questions, feel free to ask :)

Love the colour!
I've ordered it in silver myself and I'm going to take it to my hairdresser for her to apply for me, but I've read that the silver can turn blue/purple if left on too long but yours has come out perfectly... How long did you let your dye develop for?
