Bleach London Rosé review!

I wanted to make this blog post because the amount of times I have searched for a review of this stuff on someone's hair that is not white is unbelievable. For those of you who don't know, Bleach London is an Insta-famous, super cool salon based in London, specialising in bleaching and crazy cool coloured hair. A couple years ago now, they released a line of their own products and the stand out colour was Rosé, the colour all girls wanted to achieve on their hair. Well, since my lengthy process going from brunette to a bright blonde, I have wanted to dye my hair a cool colour and as basic bitch as it might seem, pink was always going to be my first choice.

You can buy the Bleach London products on Boots.com or on Bleach London's website and from reading reviews on Boots saying it made very little difference to a lot of peoples hair, I did not have high hopes so I took precautions. I bought two bottles of dye (I have relatively long hair and this was unnecessary.. I didn't even finish the first bottle), the Rosé shampoo and the Rosé conditioner. Now, I bought these a while ago but I finally found the courage at 3am last night after finishing an essay.. See the results below and how I achieved it!!

Before:

As you can see, some bits are super yellow-y towards the front. About a month ago (before this pic was taken, I used Bleach London's white toner to brighten the hair to help it take to the dye better - try this if you feel it's necessary. I also use Bleach London's silver shampoo and conditioner religiously). You can also see the rough colour my hair was before in my previous blog post. This photo was taken by Christos Patelli <3

After:

Fruit salad sweetie results due to my different coloured strands of blonde. Can't say I don't love it though!




Sooooo, in order to achieve this I shampoo'd it twice with the Bleach London Rosé shampoo, leaving it on for 5 minutes both times before washing it out. It is only recommended to leave the shampoo on for 3 or so minutes but I decided to push it a little to help boost the colour better. After washing out the shampoo for the second time, I towel dried my hair and proceeded to messily apply heaps of the Rosé dye throughout my hair (with my bare hands - use plastic gloves if you have some). Now it says to leave the dye on for 15 minutes but after reading reviews on Boots.com, I pushed to an hour.. Yes. A whole hour. After the hour was up, I washed it out and applied the Rosé conditioner and left that on for 5 minutes then rinsed it out and this is what happened! So pleased I avoided a half arsed peach colour and achieved a full on baby pink. My next challenge is to not look too hipster now when dressing myself. Will probably leave the Wrangler mum jeans in the cupboard for the next month.

  1. Can I ask, how long did it last? Does it wash out in a few washes ?

    1. So sorry I didn't see your comment sooner! It washes out super fast yes, so I use dry shampoo a lot (Bumble and Bumble 'Pret a Powder' is the best as water-based dry shampoo's aren't great). I am currently using 'The Big Pink' by Bleach London however which is a much darker, brighter pink and takes way longer to wash out and when it does wash out it turns into a super pretty baby pink!

  2. I have bleach blonde hair and I really want to go temporarily pastel pink on my tips. I'm scared it may stain however as I've spent a lot of money at the hair dressers trying to get my hair to the colour it is. Do you think this would be a good purchase?

  3. I've got darker hair than yours but it's still blonde, I recently used a pink dye but it stained my hair and made it brownly colour after it washed out. Did yours go to the colour it was before or did the dye stain it
