Electric Paradise is a vivid, versatile neon pink that has been one of the most popular Arctic Fox shades since it first launched in 2017 - if you haven’t given it a try yet, you’ve been missing out! Read on to discover the best ways to use this festival-ready, UV reactive shade! Coloring with Electric Paradise Electric Paradise is a semi-permanent dye, which means it fades out gradually over time. This is perfect for hair color newbies who want to experiment with a bold look without the commitment. Plus, it's made with vegan ingredients and free of harsh chemicals, so you can dye your hair guilt-free. Best Base for Electric Paradise Electric Paradise will shine brightest on pre-lightened hair, more specifically a Level 8 or lighter on the hair color chart. This means if your hair is naturally dark brown or black, you'll probably need to lighten it before you dye it pink. But don't worry, if you're not blonde already, achieving this look is still totally possible! Here are some tips for lightening your hair at home, but be sure to strand test first! Level Up: Electric Paradise on Different Hair Levels Here's a breakdown of what you can expect from Electric Paradise on different hair bases: Level 9+ (light blonde): This is the sweet spot for Electric Paradise! You'll get the full-on neon pink with a vibrant UV glow. Level 7-8 (medium blonde): The pink will still be pretty bright, but it might have a slightly softer look. The UV glow might be a little less intense too. Level 6 (light brown): You'll see a softer pink with a hint of coral, but there probably won't be much of a UV glow. Level 5 (medium brown) and below: The dye won't show up very well on dark hair. But hey, if you don't want to lighten your whole head, you could always try a peekaboo highlight with Electric Paradise! Not sure if your hair is light enough for Electric Paradise? We always recommend a strand test first so you can see exactly how the color will turn out before applying it all over. But if you’re uncertain, and especially if your hair is unbleached, increasing the pigmentation is your best bet for ensuring a more medium tone like this will turn out visibly and vibrantly. Every AF shade has a swatch chart on the product page to help guide you in your quest for the perfect color, but if you have any questions about Electric Paradise or any other AF shade, feel free to send us an email at [email protected] and we’d be happy to help! Get Faded: How Electric Paradise Fades Electric Paradise typically lasts for 4-6 weeks, depending on how you care for your hair. As it fades, you’ll notice that this color stays true to its undertones until the end, gradually fading into a lighter version of itself. To keep your pink looking fresh, try using color-safe shampoo and conditioner. Generally, washing your hair less often will also help your color last longer. Here are some other tips for making your dye last as long as it can: Avoid heat styling tools as much as possible. If you do use them, use a heat protectant spray first. Protect your hair from the sun. UV rays can cause hair color to fade. Wear a hat or spray in our UV protectant when you're going to be outside for extended periods of time. Avoid swimming in chlorine or saltwater. Chlorine and saltwater can strip hair color. If you do go swimming, rinse your hair with clean water afterwards. Electric Paradise Mixology Electric Paradise is stunning on its own, but it also plays well with others!
