I am not a risk taker. I like to think I am but when it actually comes to it I like to stay safe in my comfort zone. This is especially true when it comes to clothing and my hair. I am incredibly self conscious and as much as I would love to be completely comfortable and outgoing, I am just not.
So when I was out and about shopping on Saturday and I came past a stall selling La Riche Directions and Crazy Colour hair dye I nearly walked straight past. Recently though I have been getting the urge to do something different. I have had blonde dip dye for the last few years and my hair is now the longest it has EVER been, so why not make the most of it.
So I was drawn back to the stand and decided to pick a colour with which I would dye over my ombre! I picked La Riche Directions as I have heard lots of good things about them. Then I decided on Alpine Green!
I lathered it all on, quite roughly to be honest and then left it on for around 1 hour. The best thing about these dyes is that they aren’t damaging to your hair, my hair actually feels better than ever! After this time I rinsed it off for a good 10 minutes and the bottom of the shower looked like I was standing in the sea!
So here is the final result!
I do love it, I absolutely love the fact I have done something a little bit different. The only problem is that it is fading SO badly! Below are pictures after the first wash and after the second wash.
I’m not sure if I am using the wrong shampoo or something! I have washed in cold water and barely touched my ends but still no joy! I understand that this colour will fade faster than many other colours but still! At least I still have over half a tub left to top it up!
Help! Has anybody got any shampoo/conditioner advice that isn’t going to break the bank?
Don’t get me wrong, I still flippin’ love looking in the mirror and it being a bit different!
What colour should I try next?
