From the second I heard of Overtone I was intrigued. I always wanted bright pink anime girl hair, but I have naturally dark brown hair. I know I would have to bleach
the fuck out of it to get the look I was going for, but Overtone presented another option
Prior to trying Overtone I had my hair pre-lightened with caramel highlights and once my roots grew out a little bit I decided to add the Rose Gold for Brown Hair system and I absolutely loved the results!
On the Left is my Rose Gold hair without any editing whatsoever – on the Right is my Vibrant Magenta hair. You can see the clear difference in shades!
So How Does Overtone Work?
If you purchase the complete system it comes with a Deep Treatment and a Daily conditioner. You apply each just as you would a deep conditioner like a coconut oil hair mask, watch an episode on Netflix, and rinse! You don’t even need gloves or a cape, the conditioner doesn’t stain your skin!
How Long Does it Last?
The complete system provides you with a weekly deep conditioner and a daily conditioner which makes it very easy to maintain your color. Even after not using the any of the treatments for 2 weeks my color still stayed and didn’t fade too much. Anytime I feel my hair fading, I just pop on the conditioner and my hair is revived (both in health and color)
Can I Take Hot Showers?
Highly encouraged!! If you’ve had colored hair before you know the feeling of taking a hot shower and watching that color swirl down the drain – not with Overtone!
The Newest Shade: Vibrant Magenta
This new color is VIBRANT and unapologetic! You can see the slight difference from the Vibrant Magenta (pictured Right) vs. the Rose Gold formula (pictured Left). You can expect the results to be similar as the swatches – a darker, more vibrant version!
Will Overtone Work For ME?
Let’s be real – the company has made it very clear that their products work best on blonde or pre-lightened hair. They market it as a touch-up from your faded dye job and it does exactly that. So if you have very dark, virgin hair Overtone will give your hair a slight tint, just as a permanent dye would. The biggest difference and the one that makes the most impact is that coloring your hair with Overtone will help heal your hair.
Would I recommend Overtone to all my friends? HELL YES
Would I try different shades? HELL YEAH
Am I happy with my hair? YEAH GURL
