(1) Switch to creme and dye a lot more often
(2) Special Effects Atomic Pink
(3) Special Effects Virgin Rose
(4) Mix Atomic Pink and Virgin Rose to get an in-between shade
(5) Some other color
(6) Something else
I think the creme is right out, and no, I haven't been able to find any remaining stashes of the gel formula... I've tried. I have a few test streaks of Special Effects in my hair right now. Atomic Pink is a bit too light, and Virgin Rose is a bit too purple. The mixture is better than either color alone, but not right.
I think I'm solidly into Something Else territory at this point. I'm contemplating doing fairly thin layers or chunks of it in Atomic Pink and Virgin Rose, so that I wind up with a mix of colors rather than just pink (but still with the bottom layer being purple.) Something like this, but the streaks would be less pronounced since the colors are very similar. It would be a pain in the butt to do at home, but not much more work for my stylist since she's already working in very small sections.
Anybody have any other ideas?
