Blondes do have more fun…!!!

Before

IMG_6426 This week I was set the task of dying my friends hair. To set the scene; she’s blonde, she has only ever had her highlights done in a salon, never used a home colouring product before and to top it all off I work with her – so no pressure there then! We used Garnier Nutrisse Creme (colour 9.13)

Application was quick and easy to apply and instructions were simple to follow. All products are included in the box, however you may need a few hair clips to help section the hair along with a comb or a brush. We used an old towel and placed this around the shoulders to protect clothes from any possible hair dye type drips or accidents! I would recommend using the gloves when washing the hair dye off to protect hands and jewellery. We left the product to develop for 20 minutes and  sat down with a cup of tea and danish! When it was time, we rinsed off the colour and applied the intensive conditioner (supplied in the kit). I really would recommend smothering this all over your hair and allowing a few minutes for this to really soak in, the difference is very noticeable – take it from someone who in the past has forgotten this important step!!!

After washing out the product we blow-dried the hair and smoothed over with straightening irons. The end results were fantastic! My friend made it clear that she wanted the colour to look as natural as possible, I think the colour was the perfect shade and it gave her hair a glossy sheen with lots of multi tones hopefully you can see that from the picture below.

Overall Verdict: 9/10
For anyone new to home hair dye kits this is an ideal place to begin! Semi permanent dye is gentler on the hair and you also have the assurance that if the shade is not for you then after 3-4 weeks chances are it won’t be as noticeable as first applied! The Nutrisse Creme’s conditioner is wonderful,  its worth buying the kit just for that, plus it smells delicious!!! The little bottle goes a long way too so I recommend applying once a week to help maintain the colour and gloss! So would I recommend to a friend – well I have,  plus I applied it too so the answer to that is YES!!!!
