L'Oreal Colorista 2-Week Washout Colour, $16.90 (80 ml).
Customising your hair colour just got a whole lot easier, with nine pastel and vivid shades to play with including lilac, burgundy, rose gold and turquoise. This semi-permanent hair dye colours your hair while conditioning it at the same time, so your tresses feel soft and cared for. Colour gradually fades over one to two weeks, depending on how often you wash your hair. Mix them up for Instagram-worthy #unicornhair or simply use your one desired shade; it’s up to you to be as creative as you want although it’s worth noting that most of these colours work best with bleached or highlighted hair. Available at Watsons.

Available in seven different bright and fun shades such as Hot Pink, Pastel Blue and Mint Green, each pump deposits a lightweight powder pigment onto your hair, and shows up well even on dark tresses. Simply wash it out at the end of the day with a deep-cleansing shampoo to ensure that there’s no residual colour. Easy! Available at Watsons.
