What does it do?

I’M BORED Hair Makeup is a color serum that combines salon-grade pigments with a nontoxic, conditioning formula that deposits a semi-temporary color. The serum-like texture contains aloe vera and soy protein to help moisturize, reduce flyaways, protect from heat damage, add volume + shine, all while adding a light hold for styling. I’M BORED semi-temporary color typically lasts between 2-6 washes.

What does it smell like?
Fragranced with a blend of mandarin and lemon essential oils, this fun scent also contains hints of coconut milk and whipped marshmallow!

Is this for my hair?

I’M BORED Hair Makeup in the shade Thirst Trap was created to be used on medium to light brown hair only. This shade has a heavier pigment load in order to tint darker hair. If your hair is lighter and you use this shade, it will more than likely stay in your hair longer than 2-6 washes. If that’s too long, you can check out our colors for blondes!

What else should you know?
Color payoff will vary based how much hair is lightened as well as on the porosity of the hair and underlying hair chemistry. We recommend you conduct a hair strand test to determine color payoff. After the first wash, color may remain but the styling hold will be gone.

Safe on:

All hair textures, pre-lightened, chemically-treated, keratin-treated, and color-treated hair.

  • Clean Formula
  • Healthy hair focused, that does NOT contain: PPD, Ammonia, Sulfates, Parabens or other harsh for-your-hair chemicals or additives.
  • Aloe vera extracts add moisture and shine to the hair while also boosting hair growth.
  • Soy protein essential oil helps to strengthen and repair damaged hair.
  • Ultra smooth formula that deeply conditions while depositing color.
  • All of our products are vegan and cruelty free.

Step 1: Start with towel-dried hair.
Step 2: Grab your favorite shade of I’m Bored!
Step 3: Section out the strands of hair you want to color.
Step 4: Pump I’m Bored into your fingertips. (Afraid of staining? Wear gloves!)
Step 5: Work into hair with fingers, fully saturating the section.
Step 6: Blow dry and style!
I’M BORED will last 2-6 washes!

Dab hair with a towel to remove any excess product before blow drying. This tends to help the hair appear less “greasy”.
Want to extend the life of the color? Wash with cool water!
Want to remove color faster? Wash with hot water and use a clarifying shampoo!
Blow dry color in, then rinse hair to remove any undesired hold. Don’t worry, your color will stay intact!
Want a bolder, longer lasting color? Use I’m Bored on dry hair!

    I was really looking forward to using this product but the entire bottle leaked in the box. I guess I thought the bottle would come with a cap that went on it that would prevent leaking so I’m a little disappointed.

    Was really excited for this because of all the good reviews. I have very light brown hair, almost blonde so I assumed it would work great. I deposited a lot of product only to see no results. My hair is a slightly darker brown, no hints of purple. Love this brand but this product did not do it 🙁

      Hello there!

      Thank you so much for leaving a review! We understand that it can be frustrating that I’M BORED isn’t showing up on your hair. Unfortunately, the porosity of your hair and underlying tones and hues of your hair can affect how long I’M BORED lasts in your hair. To achieve a longer lasting look and more vibrant look, you can also apply I’M BORED to dry hair!

    I never do anything with my hair besides wash and brush, so this was my first time ever doing any sort of coloring to my hair. As a lifelong fan of Hayley I’ve always wanted to have colored hair but I’m afraid of bleaching so this was a delightful means of trying out a new style, the name is really fitting;) definitely wear gloves, it’s not bright purple but it’s a deep hue that gives an incredible witchy vibe which I adore. So as the definition of novice, this serum was so easy to use, looks great (I’ve a med-dark hair so it shows really beautiful in the sun) & I can’t wait to try cherry cola next!

    I bought all six colors of this product but so far I’ve only been able to try this purple one. It says it’s temporary color but I’ve had it on about a week and half. The purple is slightly starting to fade but still remains vibrant! I wash my hair every single day so I’m really impressed with the longevity of the color! I get many compliments at work from customers! Would for sure recommend this for anyone that want to try dye for the first time! 🙂

    Great Product!! I recently dyed my hair platinum blonde and wanted to add some color. I knew thirst trap was more for darker hair but it came out great!! Love It!

    • Hallie From GDY

      Hey Henry!

      Thanks for reaching out! Our Thirst Trap was formulated for brunettes but it can be used on lighter hair! Please know that if you are using a brunette shade on lighter hair, I’M BORED will most likely stick around for longer than 2-6 washes.

    bought this to color my eyebrows with (as strange as that sounds) and it worked wonderfully !! i’ve had relatively bad experiences with coloring my eyebrows since the color just wont take, but this took perfectly. i accidentally stained my sink, but alcohol removed it with no problem. definitely recommend!!

    This color is so so pretty and vibrant! I was kinda hesitant to try IM BORED products because I don’t usually use any tools on my hair including a blow dryer. I’m so glad I tried it out because it was so easy and the color is beautiful. I can’t wait to see how it fades out!

    The lightest, simplest, most delectable shade of purple for brunettes. Smells like a beautiful beach vacation and looks like a pit stop at a rave. The perfect balance!

    Sh*t this stuff is AMAZING.
    For context, I frequently buy color depositing conditioner from an Unnamed brand to color my hair temporarily. It always gives a light, tinted hue on my brown hair that I know will wash out sooner rather than later. I work for the federal gov, and some offices I work at are weirder than others about hair dye. So I can never commit long term. This method was “good enough”, but lets be real, it didnt look fully dyed, it looked tinted.
    When I saw this was released, I just assumed it would be the same, but at least now I can support GDY. I was expecting a color depositing conditioner level of color (faded, but a good enough tint), and man I was wrong.
    This stuff is PIGMENTED. I LOVE IT. The purple showed up PERFECTLY on my light brown/dirty blonde hair. It looks like I fully dyed it.
    A little goes a long way, I will have this for awhile!
    Since this color showed up so strongly, I am tempted to try the blonde colors when I need a bit more of a subtle look. (again, my hair straddles blonde-brown).
    A-freakin-plus Good Dye Young!! Will be buying again and again.

    So I wanted to try this . I have a little bit of a darker shade of brown . First try it wasn’t noticeable . Second try I was able to see it a little but not noticeable . My hair must be too dark but it’s for brunettes . Can you make a shade for darker brown or black hair? I wanted to give it a dry . Product smells pretty good but also feels a bit oily after blow drying it . But again it’s not Really noticeable as I wished it would be . A little disappointed.

    Simple application! Definitely use gloves if you don’t want purple fingers the next day! But shows up briliantly and is really easy to apply, heat set, and go in short time!

      Hi Catherine!

    I’m not one to typically trust anything that says it’s for brunettes or anyone with dark hair but I currently have some lighter highlights and figured why not take a shot. I did half my hair and it did show up on the bleached parts but very very vaguely. It didn’t show up at all in the rest of my naturally dark hair. While I appreciate the effort and price it’s not something I would recommend to anyone with medium brown or darker hair. On the plus side it does smell really good.
