My hair has gone through some changes this year. Good and bad. I started the year off with locs down my back, then I chopped ‘em all. Then I got this cute and curly cut. My barber disappeared and so out of desperation, I went to another barber. He practically shaved me bald and now I think I’m going to grow my hair out and start my locs again. I adore super short hair and it was so easy to deal with when Elle was a newborn but I’m missin’ styles.
This is a sponsored post through Glam Media and I got the opportunity to test Clairol Professional ‘Classic Collection’ hair dye. I haven’t dyed my hair in almost a year which is sooooo unheard of for a hair dye addict like myself. I picked the shade Classic Moongold which is level 7 medium cool blonde. I picked this one because I knew it would lift my dark brown hair enough to show a difference. Dyeing dark brown hair without bleaching is challenging but I’d much rather do it WITHOUT bleach. I did an at-home bleach dye once, honey and it was a bad idea.
You know you dye your hair a lot when you already have the tools at home. I had gloves, a mixing bowl, brush and everything…
Dyeing short hair is a breeze compared to when I used to dye my locs. Loc’d hair had to be rinsed out several times to ensure that you got every bit of the dye out. But when you’ve got an inch of hair or less on your head, it just makes everything easier. Oh, and I did my brows too. Because I’m big on my brows and hair matching. If even a little. By the way, I didn’t use the developer that was provided. I already owned Clairol’s Developer in 30 and used that instead. I’ve dyed my hair enough to know the 30 is optimal for my natural hair color.
So I mixed and mixed…
And I applied.
It was beyond easy and even those who are weary of doing hair color at home will probably love how seamless this is. Wanna see the turn out? Stay tuned for next week’s post!
Classic makes a comeback. Clairol Professional’s new ‘Classic Collection’ offers 16 timeless shades with a modern formula for brilliant shine and deep conditioning.
