After a full year of crazy colours, I have decided to end 2018 with a BANG!!!!
jk, actually just wanted to end the year with a normal hair colour…finally…
After swearing off using box dye (see my blog post about Why you shouldn’t try to save money when it comes to bleaching hair) I stupidly decided to use it again. Why? because i’m a broke a$$ student so I guess that gives me a PASS on making stupid decisions – although my friends would argue otherwise.
So, what did I do?
Well I used Garnier Nutrisse Cream box dye in a dark golden brown to dye over my blonde balayage.
Apparently, because of my ashy blonde, my hair colour was stripped of its warm tones, so if I had just used any old brown box dye it could’ve turned my hair green
(yup, I was thiiiiiissssss close to messing up once again)
Which is why I used a dye with a golden undertone to put some warmth back into my hair to avoid that whole situation.
I say almost because my hair is a Very cool dark brown, and this dye added a lot of warm tones to it, as you can see below
It is pretty crazy, I actually did my research this time, perhaps I did learn something???
…and this time I had no mishaps or howling stories to share of my stupidity. Thank god.
