I recently attended the Global Citizens Festival and I found it to be a perfect opportunity to play around with Redken’s Color Rebel hair make up! Before I share my experience with the product, here is more information on Color Rebel.
Using makeup technology with direct color pigments, Color Rebel deposits a very fine colored micro-coating on the surface of the hair, making it resistant against water and mechanical aggressors, such as brushing, blowdrying or flatironing. The hydrophobic nature of its micro-coating limits modification or transfer due to water. Water slides along the surface of the hair fibers coated by Color Rebel. Color Rebel washes out after two shampoos.
I was thrilled to receive Color Rebel because I’ve been meaning to get my hands on hair chalk or similar temporary hair color products and especially thrilled when I learned that my dark brown hair wouldn’t challenge the color pigmentation of Color Rebel. Just a couple hours before heading over to Central Park, I took a few of my underlayers and applied a few layers to my ends of Rebel Without A Coral for a real pop of color. Then, I took a few random strands from mid to top layers of my hair and applied ‘one click’ to the strands for a more subtle color (to dispense the product, you twist the product & it clicks). I couldn’t stop with the color there — I took a little bit of Purple Riot to a few random bits of hair. Color Rebel was quick to dry but to be on the safe side, I took my hair to a blow dryer & set off to the festival!
I liked how easily it was to build up the color with Color Rebel. Since the pigments are pearlescent, one layer of Rebel Without A Coral left a pretty rosy pink color on my hair. I applied the product without gloves and it did get on my hands but the colors washed right off with water. I’ve washed my hair once since applying the product and I can report that the colors have lasted a single shampoo! I’m curious to see if the colors wash out after my next shampoo or if it will last past that. I did experience some color transfer on a top I was wearing because I was letting my wet hair air dry but I’m assuming since the product washes away fairly easily that it shouldn’t leave a stain.
Overall, I’m a fan of Color Rebel & I look forward to playing around with other colors!
Color Rebel hair makeup will be available in salons nationwide in October.
