Going Brunette

Sunday, 1 December 2013

Those who have read my blog since it started will know that for the last couple of years I have been blonde. When I was younger I went through some brief brunette stints, and my natural hair colour is a dark mousy brown, but I was adamant I wanted to be blonde, so blonde I went. Recently however, I feel like I have grown up a lot and wanted to go for a bit more a mature hair colour, plus maintaining those roots on a student budget was just never going to happen.

I dyed my hair with a box dye from Nice ’n’ Easy in their Perfect 10 range, mainly because I am massively impatient. In hindsight, this may have clouded my decision slightly, because the application was actually pretty difficult. It comes with a comb applicator, which by the time I got to the top layers of my hair just kept knotting it, meaning that the colour wasn’t distributing evenly. The finish wasn’t bad, I had clearly turned brunette, but I still wasn’t completely happy with it. I gave it a 3 week breathing period, and then re-dyed it. This time I used the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, and the results were much better!

So this is the new look! What do you guys think? Better blonde or brunette?
