WE have combined Blasted and BLAST to be one. They will be called BLAST from now, they have both Pigment for loads of color and triple the amount of LIQUID MICA mixed to create the most metallic and shiny colors on planet earth. BLAST WORKS the same exact way, just apply after shampoo, leave on from 5 to 500 minutes - - to give you a metallic colorful look. These also Shampoo out with regular shampoo , the advantage of using these over any other hair color. Absolutely ZERO damage because these are color PLUS conditioner.
For the absolute best results, these should be applied to blonde, silver, or gray hair. You should use some sort of clarifying shampoo (MALIBU - UN DOO GOO SHAMPOO) or Malibu Color Prep treatment pack packet, which rids the hair of unwanted minerals which are present in all of our water, this helps in create and "EVEN" color application. So, please give this method a try the first time. Another wonderful trick is using a metallic cap which helps create heat , all heat helps with hair color deposit....which helps make the color brighter and last longer. So using the travel hair dryer we offer on this page also works wonders in making the color brighter and it soaks in deeper so it lasts even longer. Using every trick helps make your results perfect. This is true Semi-permanent hair color and when you have that, it will shampoo out completely. You can change to many different colors in one month even, it can be so much fun playing with pastels !
All bottles come w/ COMPLIMENTARY BLACK PLASTIC CAP, as using a cap gives even better Results! We recommend purchasing a Malibu COLOR PREP PACKET - which helps remove toxins from our water that build up on hair and create an "UNEVEN' application. Using one of the MALIBU packets eliminates all toxins and creates a clean --clear-- Canvas for your color work to be applied to. Another helpful product if you are looking for optimum results is using a Metallic Cap and the Travel Hair Dyer - as HEAT makes semi-permanent hair color deposit deeper into hair strands - not only making color richer but also making the color last longer. All added tricks for those trying to become a Killer Crib Colorist!
For the ultimate results, I always recommend 1 Malibu packet prior to coloring of ANY kind really. The Color Prep or Malibu C, Quick-Fix, CPR, or DDL packets are best. Another good move is to have a bottle of UN DOO GOO Shampoo( by Malibu C) in your shower....it has some of the goodies that are in the packets, so if you are going to use BLAST, BURST or BLASTED and you either don't have a packet, don't have the time or for whatever reason .... you can just use UN DOO GOO Shampoo, wet hair - add shampoo.... massage in, leave suds on hair for 5-10 minutes, rinse very well. Your hair will be clean enough to have an EVEN application.
I also suggest purchasing the Metal cap and hair dryer ( which really works wonderfully for a travel "HOOD" hair dryer). HEAT adds to brightness and how long color lasts .Every single person's hair takes color differently. Acouple people have told me how they use the packet, apply their color put cap on....apply hair dryer while they do some reading for 1-2 hours. Their color lasts 2-3 weeks and covers their gray so they get more length out of the professional color appt
BURST, BLAST & BLASTED work wonderfully on 80% of all people, remember that fact. But be very vigilant in methods used to achieve optimum results! !
Best Directions for BURST + BLAST + BLASTED :
Remember everyone, Every single person has different type hair and the texture, porosity, and color of your hair all need to be taken into account before using. For one person leaving BURST on for 3 minutes is perfect.....for another person leaving BOOST/ BURST / BLAST / or BLASTED on for 1 hour is perfect....Try a strand test, the product "BURST" is the darker of the 2, if you can only swing one of the two - - my recommendation is BURST. When you want to lighten or remove the color - begin using REGULAR shampoo, gradually the color will come out.
Same thing applies when ready to change colors or looks - just begin using regular ole shampoo and it will come completely out.
One thing you will want to watch is the floor of the shower, but do like I do keep a plastic pitcher in the shower, throw a little liquid soap in the pitcher..........fill with warm/hot water. After rinsing hair, pour pitcher around floor to clean.
The goal with BLASTED is to have a way of "keeping-up" metallic looking hair, which is 'on fleek' currently. Silver micro glitter does not like water...........so I had been looking for a Plan B for a while now. Of course keep your Reviews and opinions rolling in - the more I know the smarter I can become and the better our products can be for you!
The names come from the table of metals and KC's brain ! For example: Rosidium is a word she made up that sounds like Rose Gold Metallic - TO her !
Copper is the same only there is a lot of metallic gold/Copper and not too much rose....its like Killer Copper 2 with lots of shimmer involved.
Also NEONS and Black.lite colors are very popular among the festival crowd and we have developed a Black-Lite Over.Coat called LIT. Apply to hair to make it come alive when seeking that Glo-by-Night Color. Killerstrands introduces a Black.lite Over.coat that will make any Kenra or Pravana VIVIDS / NEONS glow under black-light, using Kenra NEONS ! Just apply after a shower & before going out .....a super flash-rinse........./dry & go.
1) LIT : Hair Conditioner - Towel Dry ............apply ......... process 10 min., speed rinse (rinse for 10-30 seconds in cool water), air dry ( least amount of heat the better for long lasting)
Remember not all products work for all people's hair type........... but if the products I develop work on a minimum of 80% of all heads of hair types I feel I have a true winner, BLAST meets those standards !
