My older daughter, who is still only 13, is constantly trying to keep up with the herds of lemmings, commonly known as teenagers. In recent years dying your hair has become as common as having a mobile phone. Almost unheard of in my teenage days. Although schools are becoming a little more lenient, they still have guidelines that advise hair colour needs to be natural and not extreme.
So Superdrug Instant colour hair spray is ideal for weekends and parties.
We tried out three of the range from Superdrug. Neets wanted to try the blonde and red, while Lucy wanted to try the red and black. Both girls have dark brown hair, so it was going to be interesting how much the colour would show up.
It worked really well. Except for perhaps the black, which obviously wouldn’t show very well on a dark background. It’s really easy to use, simply like a spray paint. Shake and spray. So easy. You do have to go over the area a bit if you want stronger colours.
You can make patterns, or lines, or simply just spray everywhere.
We don’t have UV light at home, so we couldn’t test that out. But sounds like a fabulous idea.
Afterwards it was very easy to wash out, simply by washing their hair in the shower. Although there was a lot of colour in the water, and I did have to clean the tiles afterwards as the darker colours left marks behind. Nothing severe.
It didn’t mark their clothes, but we were careful when applying. I don’t think it would fair well in rain either. So to be avoided if possible. The spray dries quickly, and leaves the hair feeling a little rough/hard. If you try to brush it, the colour comes out on the brush a little. Like powder. So really this kind of fun and funky spray is for short time use.
The girls really enjoyed using it and I think they will try to find a suitable time when they can try it out again soon.

The cans are very funky and fun. We love the characters and the colour coordination. The cans are the same size as body spray cans, so a neat size and handy.
For the appearance of the spray when used. The colours look good, but they can look a little painted on if you spray too close. You also have to spray quite a lot on to get a good amount of colour.
The sprays cost £2.99 each. Which is decent enough for teenagers to spend on something. However if you end up buying more than one, it can get costly.
A great easy colour fix for fun, partying and fancy dress. Easy to use, easy to wash out. Only downside in my opinion is that you could do with someone to apply it to your hair so you don’t get it too close or uneven.
