I love to dye my hair. I prefer to do it these days with the least amount of damage possible. I rarely lighten (bleach) it but when I do it’s at a salon. When I say red head I mean Royal Mail red there’s nothing natural about it. I’ve worked my way through many variations of red. I have my hair dyed red then as it fades I top the colour back up myself. These semi-permanent shades act like stains & don’t cause damage. In a splurge about 6 weeks ago I picked up Manic Panic’s Amplified Vampire Red? Same as Directions but are supposed to last 30% longer. Also a treat as they’re more than double the price, so are they worth it?
I know we are already a week into June & this should be up already but I fail sometimes, usually most times with timing! As for my favourites I’ve really been loving hair products this month which features heavily in this post. Funnily enough except for one product its mainly drugstore buys which have piqued my interest the most in the month of may.
This was taken yesterday, honestly I only had make-up on because I looked dead otherwise as I’m still getting over being ill. Over the last week as I’ve washed my hair I was getting a bit anxious as it felt like the ends of my hair were washing out into a ginger shade. Me being me I couldn’t let it rest & on Friday night I experimented with Directions Hair Colours. Before you begin unless your hair is blonde or has been lightened (bleached) Directions won’t lift your hair colour. If you have dark hair to begin with it won’t do much of anything. I had mine lightened & dyed red last week which is why it’s work well on mine which you can see in my Red Hair Don’t Care post.
