Ta-da!!! It’s red, finally! Not fiery red red, but a the mixture of coppery dark blonde/light brunette, aka Rich Honey, as L’OREAL calls his very shade. It’s the 734 Casting Creme Gloss and contains no ammonia and offers a semi-permanent colour which will last ip to 28 shampoos which was perfect for this little experiment, as it was the very first time I did this for myself. I had natural henna coloured hair once, but it was too dark and too red for my liking, plus the process was really long and messy.
The promises on the box, actually it’s pretty close to the truth. By the way, the box came with a Creme Colourant, Developer Creme, Luminising Conditioner and a pair of gloves, which you can see the below picture.
The application of the stuff was super easy, even for me who really had no experience before. Had to mix the Colourant and Developer in the bigger bottle, then put on the hair for 20 minutes (in my case) and finally wash it down. Finally put on the Conditioner which has a super nice smell, for 2 minutes and wash it with clear water. Finito.
Ok, of course I had looked up for some instructions on Google and YouTube, and actually I bought some hair dresser parter thingies whatever you call those guys. They were pretty useful I have to say, it was easier to do the partings and roots and I had to handle less hair at the same time. Also, I bought some colourant remover just in case, but I didn’t have to use it, as A, it wasn’t a very messy process, and B, I put on some lip balm/coconut oil. For the next time I might buy a small container and brush to put it even easier, but it’s not that important.
This is the result after towel drying. As I said the Conditioner smell super good and it made my soft very easy to comb (as conditioners do I know) and really really soft.
And this is my hair after full drying, plus with a small makeup and a piece of complimentary colour. The best thing is it’s pretty close to my natural dark blond/light brunette whatever hair colour, basically the same shade, just warmer and more coppery, so I don’t really have to worry about my roots in a few weeks time. I
guess hope. 🙂
Oh, and finally. Having browsed the whole selection in our local Sainsbury’s I came across with this Texturising Salt Spray on a discount, and because I wanted to try it for a long time I went for it. It promised beach matt mermaid hair, and actually it’s not so far away from the truth either. I love the natural texture it gave my hair, but to be frank, I hadn’t used the comb this time at all, so it was more wavy than usual anyway.
My final conclusion is that I’m happy I tried this, as it wasn’t complicated or expensive (the Creme Gloss was 7 quid, but you can buy it even cheaper in bulk from Amazon, the Salt Spray was around 3 instead of 5, I think). Now all I need is some time to see, whether the pretty long lasting promise is true, but probably I’m gonna buy a conditioner, which I can preserve the colour even more. Anyway, so far, so good, I couldn’t be happier.
What do you think? Do you like it?
Have a great weekend!
