Strolling along the aisles of Sally's. I always get overwhelmed by the amount of hairdye staring back at me. Up until now, I have always opted for Goldwell Topchic. This time, I decided to test another brand out. Looking at the colour charts mounted on the wall, I opted to try ion. A brand with a very wide colour choice and actually £1 cheaper than the Goldwell.
I opted for a Light golden ash blonde to retouch my roots.
My dirty and ugly regrowth!
I begin by applying it to my roots, once my roots are covered I spread the remaining dye between the palms of my hands and run it over the rest of my hair, this will ensure that the roots and the rest of the hair colour will blend and look more even
Once the mixture is applied, I wait, anticipating the colour. I know for a fact that it won't match the rest of my hair colour perfectly because this is a new brand, a new colour but after washing my hair, the results are pretty impressive! The bonus was, my hair felt like silk!
My olympus camera likes to pick up on warm tones making my hair look more orange than it actually is! The bottom image is a more true representation of the final colour without the orange flashback near the niddle....
Overall I am satisfied with this brand and colour. My next task is to take my hair to a VERY ashy cool toned light brown. Of course, I will be sharing the experience with you guys, I sense a purchase of grey hair dye! ^^
For those who always ask me whether I bleach my hair or not, the answer is NO! I simple choose a very light hairdye as shown in this post. I am not sure how many times I have said this now but you do not necessarily need bleach to achieve a light hair colour, did you see how dark my roots were? black! Hope this helps some of you out there ^_^
