This Millennial Pink Caboodles Case Is Giving Us More Nostalgia Than We Can Handle

Attention, ’90s-lovers. The ultimate piece of precious nostalgia is here just in time . Way more than your run-of-the-mill makeup case, the Caboodles Vintage Pretty Makeup Case ($10) is rife with retro flavor. If you were lucky enough to have grown up in the ’90s, then you likely had one that housed everything from slap bracelets to lipstick you shared with your BFF and wore only when your mom wasn’t looking.

You can capture the innocence of the decade by picking up your very own throwback makeup case. Store everything in it from palettes to jewelry, and proudly watch as friends shout, “OMG, I totally had one of those.” They likely did, but you, friend, you get to own one now.

What to Do If Your Hair Color Comes Out Too Dark

It can happen to even the most skilled at-home colorist: you use a box color to dye your hair, and the hue comes out much darker than you’d hoped. But believe it or not, you don’t have to suffer with a hue that’s not for you. Keep reading for our tips on how to lighten a botched dye job.

  • Try a clarifying shampoo: These types of cleansers are full of color-stripping surfactants (the stuff that makes your shampoo and soaps lather). The faster you can get to your freshly dyed hair, the better; just make sure you deep condition afterwards.
  • Call the hotline: If you experience unwanted results from an at-home hair color, immediately call the hotline number on the side or back of the box. The company representative can offer you professional advice on what to do next.
  • Face the facts: The only true way to lighten color is to remove it. But once that unwanted color has been removed from your hair, sometimes toners have to be added to color-correct. Sure, there are color-removing products like L’Oreal ColorZap ($12) readily available at the nearest beauty supply store, but if your too-dark color is still not looking right, heading to a professional is probably the best option.

How to prevent it in the first place: Since semipermanent or demipermanent colors typically fade a lot faster than permanent colors, they are often more gentle for the home colorist. And when coloring your hair at home, go only one to two levels lighter or darker than your natural hair color to avoid “oh no” moments. While most box color includes a description of what the shade will be (such as medium-light brown), keep in mind that level one equals black and level 10 is light blond.
