Im a bit naughty when it comes to my hair. I only get it cut roughly every 3 months and have a tendency to just let my colour fade until I can't take it anymore which, to be fair, is an improvement on my student days of cutting it myself twice a year and hoping for the best with harsh box dyes.
Praise the gods for the wonderful Sharon at Paul Stafford Hairdressing for converting me to the salon! What I love about her is her adventurousness with my colour and recently I've been rocking an amazing copper & pink combo but as with most all fashion colours it fades fast and hard and can be rather expensive to keep up.
But thanks to a combination of a £10 voucher with a Boots 3for2 offer on the new BLEACH London home hair care products what did I get? An awesome way to freshen up my colour without breaking the bank!
So who are BLEACH? They're basically the new hip & trendy salon in London and are coming out with amazing on-trend looks such as pastel colours, dip dyes and other wonders (leopard print hair anyone?. Also they are best buds/partners in crime with the girls at WAH Nails and have adjoining salons in the Oxford Street TopShop & their Dalston store. So you know I'm instantly hooked!
Here's my step by guide on how I tested out the dyes:
Take one messy mop and pose for obligatory "before" shots. Ignore the scrunchy...
Enlist the help of a bestie and snap blurry selfies for Instagram.
I even took advantage of my free fringe trim for the first time ever just to make sure it looked like a brand new do that will last approximately 10 washes.
Have your tools and products ready to go (these colours don't come boxed so you will have to supply your own gloves, mixing pots and peroxide if you want to pre lighten)
Apply generously and secure in place. You can wrap any bits you want streaked in tinfoil like us if you wish.
Believe it or not we only used a third of the pink and half of the tangerine on my abundance of hair so you really get a lot out of it!
Because I am ridiculous.
Then take hilarious pics of your tinfoil alien proof hat and immediately post on Instagram once again! Because of reasons...
I spent the next day trying to capture the perfect picture of my new colour and I honestly still don't think I've done it justice. But trust me it's fab! I love the pink and tangerine, they work amazingly well together and considering the whole process cost me a £1? Well you can't be bad to that!
*cue lots of swishing*
Ta ta for now!
