Hey everybody! Today I've got a hair dye review for you all. I'd been so busy leading up towards the end of uni that my roots grew out prettyyy bad! Let's see how this dye turned out on my hair!
This was my first ever foaming dye so I was really didn't know what to expect
Total of 100ml of liquid
Moving back onto the foam, I expected the foam to be a bit more dense. The foam was a little on the runny side so it did drip out of my hand a couple of time. Other than that, more importantly the foam stayed in my hair without dripping at all which was good
Before photo. That's about 10 weeks of neglect right there!
After. My roots match my hair a lot better now yaaaay
Another before and after comparison
Both of these were taken straight after hairdrying and after a couple of washed. Thought I'd do the same pose when I as the before photo. Less red tones and I'm slightly lighter which was my aim
Unfortunately I still have different tones in my hair :c
Luckily it doesn't look too bad from the back
As mentioned in the beginning, this was my first time using a foam dye and I have to say I think I do prefer it to the regular kind! I was scared that there wasn't enough dye for my hair but because the bubbles increases the volume of the liquid, it allows the dye to cover more of your hair. I'd also like to point out how easy it is to mix a foam dye compared to the usual type. From my experience and watching a few foam hair dye videos, you only need to tilt the bottle up and down a few times and its done. Compared to dyes where you need to shake for 30+ seconds, this is a lot easier to mix!
:: Thoughts on the Dye ::
The dye successfully lifted the colours from my roots, as well as colouring my already coloured hair and blending the two together quite nicely. It most importantly lightened my hair which was what I was going for. The dye not damage my hair, in fact I felt like my hair felt HEALTHILY after I dyed it. Garnier was not lying when they put "nourishing" into the name of this dye! As for fixing my uneven colour, it didn't make it more worse or better. I guess that the advantage of gradually lightening your hair colour though; the unevenness is less noticeable! Will need to read up on how to fix uneven coloured hair at home so hopefully in my next hair dye review I'll have even hair again.
:: TL;DR ::
- Lightening my hair successfully
- Did not damage my hair...
- ...in fact it nourished it!!
- The foam dye covers hair better than regular dyes
- Foam was a little runny, wasn't as dense as I expected
- The gloves were the plastic bag type
If I didn't have other dyes already bought and love testing things out I'd probably repurchase this hair dye. My biggest complaint is once again the gloves! Stretchy pleaseeee!
Hope you enjoyed this part of my hair adventure! Do you dye your hair?
