We Tested 4 Temporary Hair Color Sprays That Change Your Hair Color In Seconds


No. This is “How Much Should I Spend?” where we test a product
at various price points to let you know which is the best value for your money. Today, we’re gonna be
testing out four different temporary-hair-color sprays. The products I’m gonna be testing out are: L’Oréal Paris Colorista
1-Day Hair Color Spray, Manic Panic Amplified Color Spray, Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Rainbow Mist, and Hush Prism Airbrush Spray. I’m gonna be ranking all
of the products based on how good the color payoff is, how transfer-proof they actually are, and how easily they wash out. After my last experience using a hair-coloring product… I feel like I look like the Joker. Uh, my expectations are pretty managed. I feel like, being a
brunette with curly hair, sometimes products like these just don’t work out for me. Which is fine. But I figured, let’s try them anyway. This product rings in at $7, making it our cheapest spray of the day. And I chose this one because, to me, it’s just such a drugstore classic. I always see the L’Oréal Colorista sprays in all different colors
at any CVS, Walgreens, so I figured this would be a good one to have in the running. Nothing happened. Still nothing happened. I see, like, a stripe
of a color in my head. All right. No. Is anything happening? I see, like, a… I see, like, a slight purple tinge. First impression of
L’Oréal spray is not great. I feel like I ran out of
this spray in five seconds. It ran out so quickly. If you’re someone like me
that has very thick hair that’s gonna need a lot of coverage, you definitely will probably need to buy at least three of these little tiny cans because my hair barely looks purple. Now that I have this
color spray on my hair, if you could even see it on my hair, I’m gonna have to test out how transfer-proof it actually is. And you know what that means. I’m gonna bring back my
very tall friend, Grant, who is wearing a very white shirt. We’re gonna have a little dance party, and let’s see how much of this product ends up on his shirt. [Grant gasps] Nico: What? [gasps] Oh, no! The evidence is all over
Grant’s white shirt. Next, we’re gonna try the Manic Panic Amplified Color Spray in the shade Electric Lizard. And it is electric. This is… this is green. [laughs] I’m really kinda scared
to try out another green after my last experience. [grunts] But I don’t know, Manic Panic
is a really, really good hair-color brand. So,
I’m expecting this one, in terms of color payoff,
to be probably the best. This retails for $11, and it comes with 3.4 ounces of product. I am surprised at how much
I actually like this color. I feel like I look like a little curly-haired Ramona Flowers. And I love it. I am so impressed with the color payoff that this Manic Panic spray has. I feel like I also didn’t
have to use as much. Oh! A little green. I see a little bit of green down here. So, we’re moving on to the next one. We’re gonna try out the Lime Crime Unicorn Hair Rainbow Mist in the shade Dew Drop. That’s really cute. I love that. I do think that 14 bucks is a bit pricey for a temporary color spray, but then again that L’Oréal
one was our cheapest option, and it really did not perform well, and we went through product very quickly. Once again, I used the entire can of color hair spray on my hair, and it barely covered most of my head. It is really disappointing
that these smaller bottles aren’t really doing the product justice, because I think I would need more of them for it to look, like, at
its full color payoff. Nothing. I don’t see any blue. It all still looks purple to me. The one thing that is coming off a lot is that shimmer. There’s, like, shimmer
everywhere for some reason. We’re finally down to our
last hair-color spray. So, this is the Hush Prism Airbrush Spray in the shade Malibu Pink. And it is our most
expensive spray of the day, coming in at $24. I chose this Hush Prism
spray because it was by far the most expensive hair-color spray that I could find on the internet. I just think 24 bucks for a
temporary hair spray is… it’s a little wild. But, you know, we all make our choices, and you can make that one if you want. Well, I finished up the entire can of the Hush Prism spray as well. I’m really shocked and disappointed that a spray like this that
costs 24 bucks is this… I guess weak on the color payoff, not that all of the color payoffs have been, like, phenomenal. But still, for 24 bucks, I was expecting something way more pink
and, like, in your face, like, you could see that. And I used the whole can. This is 4 ounces of
color spray in my hair, and it just looks like this. But I genuinely don’t see any pink. I’ve tried out all four of my
temporary hair-color sprays, and I think that I finally have a winner. And that winner is the Manic Panic Amplified Color Spray. It did leave a small green
tinge on Grant’s shirt during our transfer-proof test, but it totally outperformed
all the other sprays when it came to color payoff
and how easily it washed out. This spray was definitely the most vibrant and colorful against my dark hair. And that also meant that I didn’t have to use as much product as with the rest of the hair sprays. It also took me around four minutes to shampoo the spray out of my hair, which made it the easiest out of all of the sprays to wash out. Last place goes to the L’Oréal Paris Colorista
1-Day Hair Color Spray. It kinda failed all across the board. It wasn’t great with color payoff. I had to use the entire can to even get, like, a slight tint of purple in my hair. It got all over Grant’s shirt when we were doing the transfer-proof test, and, on top of that, it
was the hardest to wash out out of all the sprays. So, when it comes to hair-color sprays, I say spend no more than 11 bucks, and try out Manic Panic’s
Amplified Color Spray.

  1. I feel like this review was pretty inconsistent like the color of the sprays and how the sprays were applied cause on the first two she had someone help spray it on her hair and the last two was that she sprayed it herself in mostly one area I also felt like she could’ve had multiple people with the same hair color but different hair textures like curly straight wavy so it’d be nice if the review overall was more consistent

  2. Oh my god this is ridiculous:
    You sprayed in the same place over and over again which is why you ran out so fast
    Use more than one model you can have one model with dark hair and frizzy hair you need straight hair and blonde hair and ginger and maybe even dyed hair.

  3. of course she's going to take a long time to wash out the hair spray, she's washing it in a sink what else did she think was going to happen

  4. Is it okay to use on her hair? I’ve heard that curly hair usually are really dry and that kind of product really dries hair out 🙁

  5. not to be rude, but i think that this would’ve been a better review if you guys had
    1. used more than one hair type: straight hair, curly hair, kinky hair
    2. more than one hair color: blonde, brunette, black, or previously colored hair
    3. the same color throughout each brand. so it’s not biased toward brighter/lighter colors
    just a bit of criticism

  6. This test is extremely unfair to the products. Not everyone has the same type of hair, for one. And the way she was spraying it herself wasn't going to give her good results. On the first purple one, I could see the color quite clearly while she was saying 'Eh, it's almost kinda colored.'

  7. I mean its okay i guess but it looks like she got thrown paint at during Holi (the color festival of India). Maybe because its chalky and crowds in one area

  8. Can anyone please tell me what the sound at 4:02 is? I hear it a lot in youtuber’s videos. Just wondering if I’m missing out on something. Thanks!

  9. so many things wrong here, she sprayed in the same spot for more than 3 times, she has a dark hair so the color will be harder to shown up, she washed her hair in the sink..

  10. You guys are really critical. The point was to see how the hair color shows up in HER hair. Not on a head of hair that is lighter, straighter, etc.
    Also as far as it being sprayed in the same spot, you can see she did it herself, so she can only see but so much when applying it & (I’m assuming) closing your eyes so that the spray doesn’t get in them.

  11. I used a temporary spray for a play and it got everywhere. Even hours later I would touch my hair and the color still came off on my hands. I heavily research a temporary dye before I get it now. Probably should have been doing that already.
