So to create this look I used Colour Freedom’s Pink pizazz hair dye. Now if you’ve been following me for a while now you know that I am religious when it comes to Colour Freedom. There excellent when it comes to colour, quantity and value.

If you want to buy some from Superdrug (which I recommend because then you get Superdrug points and more money to buy more hair dye) then click the link below.

Spooky Halloween Hair.

Fashion., Hair Dye Reviews

ello lovelies! So today I thought I would share with you my very exiting tutorial for spooky hair for the spooky halloween season!

So people feel like green hair is a very hard colour to pull off, but it’s honestly not!

I used Green Emerald by Colour freedom and it gave me such a dimensional look. For the darker blonde bits of my hair, a foresty green. For the lighter bits of my hair a vibrant grass green.

If you want to see how I created this look then please watch my tutorial below!

COLOUR FREEDOM MYSTIC PURPLE

Hair Dye Reviews

I’ll admit it, I can’t stop dying my hair purple. It’s my feel-good colour and I feel so cool with it, especially when I can rock my purple eyebrows.

When creating the purple hair colour of awesomeness I use Colour Freedom Mystic Purple. This is my go-to hair dye for purple hair for many reasons; brightness, longevity, shade.

 

It’s normally £6.99 at Superdrug, but sometimes they have sales on which is even better.

So go buy yourself some. Taste the ribena, BE the ribena.

John Frieda Precision Foam Colour Hairdye Review

Hair Dye Reviews

Hello there everyone! So today I will be doing a review on the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour hairdye. Now it’s the first time I’ve ever used a John Frieda product so I was very curious on the quality of the product and the colour result.

Now I applied this hair dye over my hair which was a mix of blue, purple and red tones so I wasn’t expecting a great result in the first place.

So the shade I used was 5B Medium Chocolate Brown. I really wanted a rich chocolate vibe in my hair and it achieved that exact perfect result.

The hair dye is a foam dye, so after mixing the developer you squeeze the bottle and the hair dye is a foam consistency which is so easy for application. I found it was so much easier applying it so my hair because it’s very short and when applying hair dye with a brush I find it dyes my scalp which looks very silly, whereas this hair dye didn’t and gave a such thick yet even coverage with such a rich colour.

This is the finished result!

Graphite Grey Colour Freedom Review.

Hair Dye Reviews

Hello everyone! So today I will be reviewing the hair dye ‘Graphite Grey’ by the company Colour Freedom.

8977386274846

Created by Knight & Wilson, Colour Freedom are a new brand of semi-permanent hair dyes that contain Shea Butter and Argan Oil to help “nourish, protect and add natural looking shine as your hair is infused with brilliant colour.”

The price that I paid for the dye was £7.99 from superdrug which you can purchase below;

http://www.superdrug.com/New-In/Colour-Freedom-Metallic-Glory-Graphite-Grey-617/p/624162

I have been looking everywhere all over the internet (Even on Peta) to see if this brand is cruelty free and I’ve seen people on instagram say it is but not seen any concrete evidence saying it is so I’m a bit wary at the moment and I’ve got my fingers crossed that it is cruelty free.

I’ve used Colour freedom’s colours before, including the colours; Pink Pizzazz, Magenta Dream, Red Poppy and Misty Grey. Now comparing these dyes to the Metallic Glory range I feel like it’s more of a ‘chemically’ dye, where as in the normal dyes it’s just the one bottle which feels more of a conditioner then a hair dye, the Graphite Grey dye included 3 parts, a conditioner packet (which I found unusual as I was expecting just the one bottle conditioner consistency like the other dyed), a developer and a colour.

Once mixing up the dye and placing it on my hair, it has a 20 minute developing time and then an easy rinse and conditioner. I feel like this dye doesn’t stain as normally when I was my hair with ‘unusual’ colours it stains my ears/neck and there was nothing at all which was a pleasant surprise.

The above photo was the before colour of my hair, a very white blonde which is extremely similar to the ‘recommended hair colour’ on the side of the box.

12795282_531321453715012_7951004591594738756_n

Excuse the coldsore, but this was the finished result and I’m absolutely ecstatic about the result! It’s not too dark, I was paranoid it was going to be really dark/near black soon as the dye is quite dark but it’s gone the perfect colour I wanted it. It’s not made my hair feel frail/straw like (like most box dyes would) and I’m defiantly going to use this again!

Thankyou for reading, Lots of love

Colour Freedom SECOND CHANCE REVIEW!

Hair Dye Reviews

Hello everyone! So today I am giving a certain product a second chance because I feel like being nice for a change, hehe! So long story short the product I am giving a second chance is Colour Freedom Hair Dye! So last time I used this product it was a disaster, Instead of having lovely red hair I turned into a orange, Literally a giant orange! Sot his time I used the colour ‘Pink Pizzazz’ which is a purple pink colour, instead of choosing the magenta colour which has a more orangey tone to it, in the mind frame of that If I use a colour that doesn’t have an orange tint in it won’t go as orange? My colour Logic is appalling, but hey ho!

Less blabbering about the colour spectrum, I filmed the whole experience so if you can’t be bothered to read all of this, then you can click the link below;

Bearing in mind I dyed my hair when It was purple I thought this would help make it not go orange as I feel I’m scarred from the last experience, it looked like this.

After leaving the hair dye on for 30 minutes and washing it out, the colour came out like this.

So as you can see it didn’t go bright pink but that is to be expected when my hair was purple in the first place but in the sun it is a vivid pink colour and I’m really impress with the result… BUT it has dyed my natural hair at the sides, me being a messy dyer got some on the sides of my head where my natural brown hair is and now I have vivid pink spots everywhere… So atleast we now know the dye works on natural hair!

Thankyou for reading, hope you enjoy my second review!

Colour Freedom Hair Dye ***REVIEW***

Hair Dye Reviews

Hey everyone. Today I’m going to be reviewing ‘Colour Freedom Hair Dye’.

Now the colour I used was Poppy Red and it cost me £8.99 which is extremely pricey! The bottle is 150ml which according to their packet is ‘extra large’ when in reality it doesn’t feel like a lot when applying it to my hair and I only put it in the bottom of my hair.

I applied this dye over a dull orange/blonde mix of hair and it didn’t dye my hair red at all, it’s just gone an extremely bright orange colour. I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt how it turned my blonde bits orange, but it’s still not red! It has a good conditioning effect but my hair feels very dry at the ends, bearing in mind my hair isn’t dead because they are brand new extensions!

The link below is the application of the dye and the result;

Overall I think this dye wasn’t worth the money at all. Compared to the colour it said and the fact you can pasteurize this colour it must turn a pretty pale colour if the effect on hair with the normal dye is the bear minimum. Defiantly going to stick with Directions hair dye next time.

BLEACH LONDON REVIEW – ‘Out Of The Blue’ Hair Colour & Washing Out Liquid.

Hair Dye Reviews

Hey everyone! So today I will be reviewing two products by Bleach London. First is the hair dye, which the one I used is ‘Out Of The Blue’ which is meant to be a bright vibrant blue colour, and the ‘Washing Out Liquid’ which is meant do be a hair colour remover as such.

Now firstly I’ll speak about the Washing Out Liquid because that is the first product by the Bleach Range. The product says that it removes unwanted hair colour that is left after washing it out. Now my hair was an extremely faded lilac colour and I used this Washing Out Liquid in the hope it would remove the remains of the colour and it didn’t take the slightest colour out, it just made my hair feel straw like and matted. The only good thing about this is that it doesn’t smell of horse poo unlike the Colour B4 hair colour removers.

Now the hair colour I was insanely disappointed with. The colour is meant to be a bright teal blue and I was really exited to dye my expensive brand new extentions ombre blue and black but no, I dyed it and my hair has gone bright purple, no joke.

???????????????????????????????This is the colour that it turned out like. Bearing in mind I have a bright light shining on my hair and the flash on my camera to bring out the colour because it’s turned a really dark purple. I would’ve thought that the dye being such a big brand and £5 for a little bottle of dye, I’d atleast expect it to go at least a hint of blue, or even bright.

Overall from trying 2 different products from Bleach London I’m appalled at the quality of these products and how they can sell them I don’t know. Such a shame as I was really exited to use these products.

Overall 2/10 on the Dill Scale.

Atlantic Blue Hair

Hair Dye Reviews

Hey everybody, here’s a little post about Atlantic Blue Hair. Now this is a very old video but I’m trying to do tutorials on each time I’ve done my hair so I hope this helps!

Basically, When I did this I put the dye on over faded blue hair, but the best way to do it (IN MY OPINION) is to do it over blonde/platinum hair. When doing this, the lighest the hair the brighter the colour. When I did this look, I used Atlantic Blue by Directions. It only costs a fiver and I personally think it’s the best brightly coloured dye to use because it’s a vegetable dye, so it doesn’t have any nasty chemicals in.

Also, a good suggestion when using this is to use gloves, as I didn’t and I had lovely blue smurf hands for a few days.

If you watch the video, you’ll see how I do it properly so I hope you enjoy this post and the video.
