From Brunette to Red Head...

Well if you follow me on twitter it will come as no surprise when I say I decided to dye my hair over the weekend and the colour I went for was Fiery Red

I've wanted to dye my hair for a while now and the two shades I've been considering are blonde and red. I've been blonde many times and thought red would be a nice change so I was very brave. This is the first time I've used a red dye so I couldn't believe the colour it looked when developing on the hair it was mega orange! I've washed my hair 3 times since and everytime I've washed my hair the water has been red but after tweeting about this a couple people tweeted me back and said this was normal.

In terms of how I feel about it now I would say I am slowly growing to really like it, when I first dyed it I loved it then the following day I hated it! I've had to re-educate myself with colours for makeup looks and today I wore Steamy eyeshadow by Mac on my lids which looked lovely!

I used the Deep Masque Hair Treatment by Macadamia Oil and my hair is super shiny and looks amazing the colour is even more vibrant since using the masque.

Here is the end result-

Have you dyed your hair recently? Which colour do you favour? I recently saw Avon have now launched their own line of hair dyes! Has anyone tried them yet?


  1. Looks great on you. I think red is def THE colour to be at the moment :) xx

  2. My mum tried the Avon colour in black and it turned her scalp and roots pink! Eeeep!xx

  3. It looks lovely hun. I'm a wuss when it comes to dyeing my hair - I only stick to colours I know! x

  4. I really like it, you look lovely :D x

  5. It looks lovely, really suits you! I have been red for the last year now but finally took the plunge the other day to go an uber bright red that I have been longing for and I love it :D

  6. I dyed my hair red too with the i think its called deep red from Nutrisse Ultra Color. I will be do a blog about it later today or tomorrow keep a look out. :)
