Trying A New Dye

Once upon a time, there was a girl with strawberry blonde curls. 

Then she developed asthma and had to take medications that turned her hair the color of bath water and straightened it. 

And then? It went gray.

I’ve tried a lot of different hair colors through the years — and reviewed a few of them on my blog — but I have never found one that I like well enough to stick with that A.) Wasn’t a limited release color, or B.) Didn’t get discontinued. (I’m looking at you, Revlon. Still pissed.)


My newest find is the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series in 6R Light Auburn. I’m not 100% sold on the idea of keeping it as my forever and ever color, but it’s here to stay for the time being. This was my first time using anything from the new Vidal Sassoon range, and it’s safe to say it won’t be the last. For those of you who are newbies, here’s a rundown of what to expect.

Pros:
- Thicker dye formulation means it won’t drip down your face
- Doesn’t leave hair feeling tangled once the dye is rinsed out
- Scent isn’t as overpowering as most
- Natural looking color results after the first wash but doesn’t fade drastically

Cons:
- Looks darker and like a solid block of color until you’ve washed your hair once or twice

Immediately after coloring. Ignore my allergy eyes!
Seeing as how every boxed red dye looks much darker than it really is the first couple of days after application, the con is negligible. 

I can’t say what the lasting power will be overall, but some dyes don’t even hold up a full week without losing their vibrancy, and this one definitely has. 

After one week.
How many of you ladies color your hair at home?
