First off, I want to start this post thanking you all for the well wishes, love and support. As most of you know, I was in a little accident about a week ago. I'm healing and getting better each day, I still have a lot of head pain but I'm trying my best to heal and get back to my normal routine. Now, on to what this post is about. A couple weeks ago I dyed my hair and posted a picture on Instagram after I was done and had a ton of people ask me what I used, so that's what we're going to talk about today. I have been dying my hair for years (not the best thing to do, I know) and I must say that my hair is really healthy, shiny and strong, I don't bleach my hair so that's probably why I don't have any hair damage. I go to a professional hair salon every 3 months to get my hair professionally dyed, cut and styled, but as some of you know, that can be a bit pricey. I usually need my hair colored every 4 weeks since my roots come in pretty fast and they start to show and since I work on camera, I have to make sure I keep up with it. Since I have to dye my roots every few weeks, I do it myself because I'm doing mostly just the top half of my head so it's easy and cost effective.
I have been using the same hair dye for about 7 years now (since I first started dying my hair black) and It's the only one I will ever use (if it ain't broke don't fix it). It's box dye and I know most people will tell me how awful it is for my hair but honestly, it works for me so I will continue to use it. The great thing about this particular color and brand is that it matches the color that my hair stylist uses perfectly so my hair doesn't look all wacky.
This is the hair dye I use, It's by L'Oreal Paris and the color is number 20, Black Natural.
As with most hair dyes, it comes with developer, the color, shimmer serum (for a lovely shine) and deep conditioner which to be honest, I don't use.
This is usually how I look when I have hair dye on my head, an old t-shirt, I use one of my husband's old tees since it's nice and large it makes it easier to take off without getting stuck on my head. Try to refrain yourself from being jealous of how glamorous I look in this shot (I kid of course).
This is what my hair looks when It's done. I should mention the shampoo and conditioner I've been using for the past couple months, it's the Bain De Terre Color Preserving Shampoo and Conditioner. I have really been loving how shiny and strong it makes my hair feel.
