Magnificence And The Blogger
After fascinated about it for ages I finally decided to try going lots lighter at home. After shelling out over £100 on a full set of highlights I went to Superdrug on the way home and picked up a couple of box dyes with the obscure notion that at some point in time I might try and get my hair really gentle. My hair is form of mousy mid brown but it surely hasn’t been that color – not less than not naturally – for years and I used to be nonetheless trying to get again to blonde after experimenting with ombre last 12 months.
I then decided (when my roots needed carried out) to try another local hairdressers to save cash and had the worst hairdressing experience of my life – to chop an extended story quick I needed to dry my very own hair and i came away with gingery highlights at the roots. Not what I wanted.
After 2 weeks of being annoyed with my hair and watching loads of YouTube videos doing plenty of research I decided to simply go for it and use the L’Oreal Extreme Platinum package* that I had bought when i had a Sunday spare. As someone who has never dyed her own hair (my Mam dyed it for me once or twice when I was at school much to her behest) I was really nervous but I discovered this kit and instructions really easy to use. It comes with dye, developer and purple conditioner to use after bleaching which I actually liked. I also watched this video which helped my approach a bit I think.
What did I think of the tip result Properly it’s definitely lighter! On the lengths of my hair (where the color was already kind of light on account of highlights/bleach) the colour has really lightened up to a pale blonde but my roots fairly pretty yellow where I simply had orangey highlights and my natural colour. My hair would not look or feel to broken however I think it could do with somewhat trim on the ends to neaten it up.
I’m a giant fan of ashy/white toned blonde hair so the colour is a tiny bit too warm for me so again I’ve been doing my analysis only this time I’ve been looking at toners and purple shampoos to get and maintain that ashy look (as purple counteracts hotter colours resembling yellow). I’ve bought Fudge Clean Blonde Shampoo* and La Riche Directions Toner in White so I will let you understand how I get on with these.
Would I use this package once more Fairly probably sure however I would be a bit extra jumbo braid kanekalon hair prepared with toners and things next time! It’s relatively inexpensive, easy to use and does lighten however as with every home hair dye make sure your expectations are real looking. They appear to be on offer quite a bit too, plus you get all the pieces you want in the proper portions, packaging and instruction. I actually just like the conditioner it comes with too, the actual fact it is purple is nice for gentle hair.
Now that I feel a bit more confident about bleaching my hair and happier that it isn’t going to fall out/turn orange/green (top tip: don’t wear or use something metallic when coping with bleach) I’ve continued my analysis and actually just bought myself some bleach powder and developer from Salon Companies to offer it a shot without an actual kit next time..eek. I’ll let you know how I get on!
