So I got a little crazy on the weekend and I decided to change my hair. Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching so many YouTube videos by the lovely dark and red haired mavens, I was inspired to find a shade somewhere between that of the gorgeous Amarixe and Aussie based beauty Amysass7. Since I am a bit of a chicken I wanted an at home colour that was semi-permanent, just in case I hated it, that way it would eventually wash out!
After reading a lot of reviews online I decided to go with the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss which retails for about $16 and looks like this:
I went with the shade called ‘Mahogany’ which isn’t pictured here, but basically it was a dark brownish purply red, if that makes any sense! It was probably a little darker than what I should have gone, as my hair is a dark blonde/ light brown shade, but the box said it could be used on light brown hair, so I jumped in! So without further adieu, here was my hair before (It looks quite blonde but if you’ve seen my YouTube vids you will know it is more of a light brown):
And after application of the L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in Mahogany, we have this!
What do you guys think? I was pretty happy with the result, but I think it is probably going to fade pretty fast! Maybe I might have to look into something more permanent!
As a product, the Creme Gloss was pretty easy to use, I liked that you mixed the colourant and creme in a tube instead of a bottle and then applied from that, it meant you could use all the dye and it was easy to squeeze out. No big spurts like you get when you apply too much pressure to dyes that come in bottle applicators. The royal jelly conditioner it came with was pretty nice, and my hair was a little dry afterward but not too bad (My hair is quite dry generally anyway). Be sure to post a comment and tell my what you think of my new do’! Thumbs up or thumbs down??
Hope you’re having a great week beauties!
