I’ve always wondered whether I would suit ginger/copper hair but never really had the guts to just go for it and get it done. Aside from people saying I wouldn’t suit it or they just weren’t sure or telling me it was a bad idea, I always steered away from it…until a few weeks ago when I thought “f*ck it, I’m doing it, it’s only bloody hair, I can dye it back!”
SO, I did it and I freaking love it!
I went from very dark hair, almost black ombré to a gorgeous warm copper, it did take a while I was in there for a good few hours but it was totally worth it! Here’s my before and after:
If you fancy a laugh zoom in on the imagine to my reflection in the mirror I look like the ghost of beauty past.
I had to have my hair stripped twice as there was A LOT of black dye from my previous hair colour that needed to be lifted out, but the end result was beautiful. My hairdresser did advise me that the colour takes a lot of upkeep so I’m booked in for a toner in 3 weeks!
Also, why is it so hard to buy products for red hair over the counter?! I went to Boots, Superdrug and every hairdressers in my local shopping centre and all I could find was a TRESemme Colour Revitalise shampoo?! I managed to pick up the John Frieda Radiant Red conditioner so having to buy some other products online.
I’ll keep you all updated on the upkeep/products used/how well they work and if you have ANY tips for help keeping the colour looking so vibrant I’d love to hear them!
Thanks for reading 🙂 xx
