so, I started off with a full head of blue ruin (also iconic) for the summer but I decided to let my roots grow out so my hair could breathe a little. what I loved most about this purple was how easy it was to transition colors because of its gorgeous cool undertones. plus, the gradation from my naturally dark roots to this vibrant ultraviolet was something else!!! ...I LOVE the smell of the dye, which is a huge thing for me because I hate dyes that smell too artificial or perfumy, but since GDY uses essential oils like bergamot, it smells fresh, refreshing, soothing, and comforting.
