I just dyed my hair two nights ago at home using the L’Oréal Superior Preference hair dye in 8A Ash Blonde (cooler). I typically like to get anything that says ash or cool since I’m not a big fan of the orange/brassy color that comes out oh so easily with asian hair.
This is a close up of the color that I choose. Basically I just wanted to dye my roots because I realized how horrible it looked after reviewing photos of me from my friend’s wedding last Saturday. My goal in dying my hair was to get rid of the roots, and to lighten my hair color. Since I have darker hair, I choose blonde, because it has the highest chances of lightening as opposed to me getting a darker shade.
Here is the side of the box so that you can see the comparison of what color you are supposed to get. Of course the colors never turn out quite right if you do not have virgin hair.
Here are my results after dying my hair (before/after). Basically it just brightened up my color and got a little bit lighter. This is actually a horrible photo of how my hair turned out because it doesn’t really look this orange.
Here’s what the box came with… the gloves are not pictured in the photo and the comb is actually my own. Lol, bad photo. But anyways, you guys have all dyed your own hair I’m assuming, so this isn’t really anything special. Anyways, its all very easy to use with simple instructions. I think if you dye your hair at home yourself, all of the hair dye brands are basically the same items repackaged differently.
Lastly, I’ll leave you with a quick snapshot that I took of myself in the bathroom after I finished blow drying my hair to see the color. See it’s not THAT orange, right?? Haha. Too bad it’s not that much lighter. Maybe next month I’ll make it lighter ash brown with some highlights.
What color hair do you think is nice? Do you have any suggestions for me?
I’m horrible at styling hair and anything hair related. I’d love to hair (lol) your thoughts.
