How to Dye Peek-a-boo Hair

While I work at home and can get away with a lot more with my hair in terms of adding fun colors, I’m also pretty low-maintenance.
Last year, I tried purple highlights and also *tried* to do a rose gold bayalage. Two very expensive salon visits went into trying to achieve the rose gold color and it barely lasted two weeks before my hair needed a touch-up. Not for me.
I still want to have fun with my hair and add unexpected pops of color when I can, but I also am not willing to invest hundreds of dollars or commit to something that’s going to look horrible if I can’t make it to the salon every 4-6 weeks.
So when Schwarzkopf asked if I would try their K-BOND PLEX™ to add some color to my hair, I did some research before committing.
K-BOND PLEX™ is salon inspired anti-breakage technology that repairs the inner hair structure for strong and healthy looking hair with up to 80% less breakage compared to untreated hair. So my hair would be stronger after using K-BOND PLEX™ than it was without any dye in it!
They also developed a pre-treatment for even color results and promises 100% gray coverage (I only have a few, but I don’t want to see them).
I couldn’t find any pictures online of people who had used the product (it’s pretty new) so I texted my friend who is a hair dresser at a salon that I can’t afford and she assured me that my hair was in good hands with Schwarzkopf.
Since I wasn’t looking for anything high maintenance, I decided to do a Peek-A-Boo Color with their Rich Caviar color. It’s this richly dark purple (almost black) color that I knew would add depth to my natural brown color, while adding a pop of purple when I put my hair up or styled it to show it off.
How to Dye Peek-A-Boo Hair
The only things you need to do a fun peek-a-boo hair color at home is a comb and the contents of your K-BOND PLEX™ hair dye box.
Brush or comb out your dry, clean hair to start.
Use the comb to divide your hair – only leave down the hair that you want to dye.
Follow the directions in the K-BOND PLEX™ box to dye that section of hair.
(If you get hair dye on any part of your skin, rub it off immediately with a baby wipe.)
Wait the allotted time (30 minutes for me) and rinse out hair before applying the keratin conditioner.
Rinse out and dry as normal.
Style hair as desired.
I found that the color is not really noticeable when I leave my hair curly – it really blends in and just adds some depth – but when I straighten it, you can really see the purple!
My daughter was a little jealous of my new hair color, so I dyed an extension with the color and hot glued it inside a hair band for her so she could have a dramatic purple streak to match.
I purchased my K-BOND PLEX™ hair dye at Walmart in the cosmetics/pharmacy area:
