I did a second application of Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Nourishing Color Creme (Spiced Plum, Dark Intense Violet) around Christmas time. It was a couple of days (??) right after the first application. The color turned out brighter than the first results. Check out the FIRST results here. So, just picture a richer, more vibrant shade of deep red. I didn’t take pictures of the second time of coloring it (trust me), it looked better than the first. I’m nearing 1 month since I’ve colored my hair. I think I can hold off coloring my hair until the end of the month or early February — whenever I feel like I need some more color to my hair. I can see some growth at the roots, but it’s not bothering me. But…I purchased a new box of hair dye. It’s L’Oreal Paris Feria Power Violet V38 Intense Deep Violet. I bought this thinking that I wanted to try a different brand. I debated between sticking with Garnier or trying something else. Since I already have L’Oreal Paris Power Violet V38 Intense Deep Violet, I’m just going to use it. At the same time, I’m thinking about changing my hair color to another color, lol. I love change. I’m getting bored with my current color too. Hmm, let’s experiment! 😊😊

What am I using on my hair to keep it in shape? Hair Food Coconut Milk & Chai Spice Shampoo & Conditioner. A review coming up soon. 🙂

How I Achieved My Hair Color

Leave a comment

Curious about how I achieved my hair color? This is how I did it!

STEP 1: BLEACH IT!

First, I had to bleach my hair. I was going shades down my natural hair color, so it was a must to bleach it. I used L’oreal Quick Blue Powder Bleach. You can purchase all products mentioned here at Sally’s Beauty Supply.

Which developer did I use with the bleach?

I used Clairol Professional Soy 4 Plex Creme 30 Extra Lift.

The right one, gold/white bottle.

STEP 2: TONE IT!

After bleaching, I had to tone my hair to get rid of the brassiness. I used Wella Permanent Liquid Hair Toner in T18 Lightest Ash Blonde. Worked like a charm! Check out my blonde hair here!

STEP 3: COLOR IT!

The next day, I colored my hair with L’oreal Preference Permanent Hair Color in 5.1 Medium Ash Brown. I loved the color. But hey, it faded after 2 (almost 3 weeks now). A friend of mine was like, your hair looks blonde or even amber. LOL. Like I mentioned before, it looks different depending on the lighting. I definitely have to re-do my hair after the roots grow out. These are the last two bottles I purchased. I bought 4 just in case. I’m going to use these up and probably look for another color. I don’t mind playing around with other colors. 😉

Thoughts on Hair Bleaching: 

I know some people freak out when it comes to bleaching their hair. I was one of them. It’s not as bad as people make it out to be unless you’re doing it frequently or back-to-back. I would say, go for it!

VERY IMPORTANT: 

If you’re inexperienced, go to a professional to get it done. It’s better to safe than sorry. When you do anything to your hair, remember to do deep conditioning treatments weekly & condition your hair daily. My hair still feels healthy and soft. Actually, even better than before. 🙂

Thank you for reading. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
