I am so happy! I feel like myself again. I feel so fresh and at peace LOL! Yes I am still talking about my hair. I’ve had this red on and off for many years, I went purple then dark brown in the past 4 months and it killed my hair so bad. I waited out, healed it and now did it back to red. And guess what? NO bleaching. Oh how I’ve missed it!
So my friend Amy (check out her blog – her nail posts are amazing!) told me about L’Oreal High colour High Lift hair dye that has beautiful bright reds that you can achieve without having to pre-bleach your hair. Now, this dye you do have to mix with a developer so it is bleaching of some sort but way less damaging than what I used to do. Apply pure bleach to my hair and strip it!
During the summer, I went from red to purple which just killed my curls and fried my hair so bad. It was the worst hair decision I ever made. I was so upset but with months of coconut oil remedies my curls came back and my hair has gotten stronger and healthier. I did not want to risk ruining it again but I wanted my red back. So, I went looking for this hair dye and I could not find it anywhere in Toronto, but I found another brand that works on the same principle so Amy, thank you for the idea!!!!!
I was really sceptical and did not think this would work at all. Or that I would need to do more than one application to get anywhere close to the colour I want. But it worked !!!! It worked amazing. I got my bright red back! Now, it is not a solid red all the way through, it has darker and lighter strands but I actually prefer it this way because it looks like I have highlights and lowlights.
The colour I used is right here. Dikson Meches Impulse Colour. I have never heard of this before but I did google it and it seems to be known in Europe. They had magenta and flaming red, and I went with flaming red.
I am so happy. I am back to me… bright, red and funky. I have not taken a proper picture to show you guys but I am so excited I wanted to share it with you asap!
