Lunar Tides Reviews
The Amazon reviews are ranked 4.6 out of 5.
According to numerous positive reviews, the hair dye works best on bleached, and if your hair is to your shoulders, then one bottle of dye won't be enough; you should buy at least two bottles.
Based on the most positive review by Ariel Snow on October 23, 2019, we can say that this hair dye has a lovely scent and vivid and bright color.
Top critical review
According to the most critical review by DoughtyGirl98 in the United States on April 14, 2019, the color didn't match at all, and instead of 'Smokey Muave hair turned bright magenta. She also adds that she had used Lunar Tides before and got a gorgeous color. But this time was a complete failure.
Thus, summing up the reviews, we can only add that if you decide to go bold with Lunar Tide hair dyes, you should strictly follow the instructions enclosed in the box.
How to Apply the Lunar Tides
Do a patch test 48 hours before applying the dye.
After you see no irritations or other allergic reactions on your skin, do a strand test before trying the whole color box, as the shades may differ from the shade of the bottle.
Put on your gloves and evenly apply the dye to the clean hair (for even application, you can use a tint brush).
Leave the color on your hair for 35–40 minutes. The Lunar Tides hair dyes are deeply conditioning and won't damage your hair.
Rinse hair with cold water (avoid hot water), gently massaging your roots.
Though the Lunar Tide is a temporary hair dye, you can maintain the color by using color-safe shampoos.
The Lunar Tides colors work well on light blonde or platinum hair; thus, you should evenly bleach your hair before a vivid hair makeover.
