Instructions for Use

Overall it’s fairly easy to use and I loved how it looked! I’ll share my tips and how I actually did it but according to the bottle it says to:

  1. Shampoo your hair.
  2. Apply the spray in the shower. The more wet your hair is the less intense the pink will be.
  3. Allow it to sit for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Rinse it out and condition.

How I Used It

I followed the directions to exactly. First I shampooed my hair, toweled it off really well and then sprayed it on.

Then I brushed it through with a Wet Brush to make sure it was evenly distributed. I left it on for 2 minutes, rinsed it out, conditioned it and hopped out of the shower.


Maybe a tiny bit of a hint but mostly nothing.

So I did it again! Same process but this time I towel dried it more, sprayed more on and left it on longer. I rinsed, conditioned and hopped out again and….just a small change.


So the final time I didn’t wash it again and instead applied it right when I got in the shower on hair that was just slightly damp. Left it in for the full 2 minutes, rinsed, conditioned and it took!

Before and after of pink-tinted hair

It wasn’t super vibrant by any means but it was a fun pink hue that gave my hair some vibrancy.

How long does Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint last?

According to the bottle, it lasts 1-3 washes. This all depends on a variety of things. The biggest factor is how porous your hair is. If it’s super porous it will likely take all 3 washes, if not a few more.

If you’re having a hard time getting it to come out, use a clarifying shampoo or a dandruff shampoo and leave it in for 5 minutes. That should help immensely!

Tips For Use

  1. If you want a vibrant pink, spray it on dry hair. This will help it to soak in the easiest to have the biggest impact. (Just remember it’ll be harder to get out!)
  2. If you’re nervous about it being too bright, start with applying it to wet hair!
  3. The darker your hair is the less likely it will show up. Your best bet for success is to spray it on the lightest parts of your hair.
  4. If you’re worried about it staining or being difficult to get out, do a deep conditioner first to ensure you’re hair isn’t super porous.
  5. The spray doesn’t easily move around – where you spray it is where it will stain. Brushing it out will help spread it out throughout your hair.

Would I do it again?

Most definitely! I think the first time I did it I was pretty nervous about it looking too crazy. Now that I know what to expect I would for sure do it!
