My hair has been brown for some time now and if you know me at all this is a miracle considering how often I like to change my hair up. For the past few weeks I have been thinking about dying my hair a dark burgundy shade and yesterday I finally thought "oh what the hell" and went for it.
I chose Schwarzkopf palette dark bordeaux because it looked the perfect shade on the box, it only cost £2.49 from Home and Bargain and I couldn't be fussed to go to any other shops.
I'm not going to explain how-to-use this as everyone knows that already but always remember to do an allergy test 48 hours prior to using (although I'm naughty and I never do this). I only purchased 1 box as my hair is both short and fine, however I probably should have bought 2 as I was having to use this sparingly in case I ran out, which lets face it, would be a total disaster.
Luckily I had enough to cover my whole head. I can't say I noticed a pungent smell like you get with some hair dyes (no name dropping here) but I did experience an itchy scalp which I have with pretty much all hair dyes. Seen as I only used this yesterday I can't say how quickly it is going to fade but it is a red dye so I don't have high hopes. I love how the colour turned out and it is in better condition now than it was before dying. Overall I loved this dye and will definitely be re-purchasing this when my hair needs a touch-up.
What do you think of the result? Have you this hair dye before? What was your experience?
