Kick Off Summer With Bright Phoenix Hair [Plus Get Free Stuff]

What better way to start your summer than with a head of hair that matches this bright, radiant, time of year?

Oh…AND we’re kicking it off with a giveaway (details below)

I did it – I finally got all the blue out and went for the Phoenix Hair that I originally saw on Youtube. We all know that red is the fastest hair dye to fade, so for this hair color I decided I’d give Arctic Fox a try.  I’ve followed their Facebook page and they’re always posting pics of women with such vibrant colors, so I figured it would be great to see how long lasting their red is.

I also really liked what Arctic Fox stands for.. they don’t seem to be just any hair color company. All Arctic Fox Hair Dye is made in the USA, vegan, cruelty free, add in conditioner, AND they are animal lover friendly – they even donate a portion of every bottle sold to local animal shelters!  Um… can we say awesome? YES!

When the Arctic Fox arrived the box smelled amazing… I’m thinking it’s the conditioner they add it – no matter what causes it – this is by far the best smelling hair dye I’e ever used. OK, on to the hair style

Planning For Phoenix Hair

I know from previous experience that red fades faster – so I’ll probably have to touch up the red at least once this summer. I’m also planning on having only a small portion of Yellow and a medium section of orange. So I knew I’d need double the amount of red than I would need of orange and yellow.

Here’s My Shopping List


  • Arctic Fox Semi Permanent Hair Dye – 8 Ounce Poison #8
  • Arctic Fox Semi Permanent Hair Dye – 4 Ounce Sunset Orange #10
  • Manic Panic – Electric Banana Cream Hair Color (Unfortunately Arctic Fox doesn’t have Yellow – YET, so I went with Manic Panic)

Other tools I used –

  • 3 Bowls & 3 brushes – Soft ‘N Style Tint Bowl Kit
  • Colortrak Repelle Professional Haircolor Stain Shield
  • Aluminum foil (or you could use plastic wrap)

After care –

  • My favorite shampoo and conditioner both sulfate free and smell AMAZING – Organix: Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo + Conditioner, 13 oz Combo Pack
  • New leave in conditioner recommended by my stylist since I damage my hair often with lightening and dying – AVEDA – DAMAGE REMEDY DAILY HAIR REPAIR 3.4 OZ (smells like the salon, but makes my hair feel so soft and silky)
  • I also use this Anti-Breakage Serum, Nourishing Coconut Milk, 4oz when I’m looking to reign in the frizz for a smoother look. (It’s also a good alternative to use when the Aveda Damage Ready Leave in conditioner is out of your budget.
