Oops...I dyed my Hair!

After nearly two years with red hair, I decided that I needed a change...a big one, no wait for a MASSIVE one!
I loved my red hair, it was fun, vibrant and it's a bitch to keep up. When it was freshly dyed it looks amazing, and I love my red ombre but it was all such a hassle to keep up. The red would run into the ombre and I damaged the ends of my hair so much because of the constant dying. 

RIP Red Hair!

So I woke up on Sunday morning and I'd had enough of the RED! Monday lunch time I marched up to Boots and had a look at all the different hair dyes they had on offer. I knew what colour I want but not idea what brand to get...my mum normally does my hair and she uses professional stuff. I looked around and what interested by Garnier Olia Permanent Hair Colour. I'd tried Garnier before and really like it, I'd also tried Loral before but something made me chose this one. Personally, I think I chose this because it was the cheapest and I'd seen a few review on YouTube and beauty blogs, it's new and Boots are doing an introductory price on this now. The shade I chose was Iced Chocolate 4.15, I needed something with an icy tone to cancelled out the red in my hair.

All the items in the box
Here is me going through the steps. YEAH BROWN HAIR! 

Open your little mixing bottle and place it on a flat surface.
First, add the hair colour into your mixing bottle
Then add the cream aka peroxide 
This is what it looks like when you have both products in the mixing bottle
Once mixed it should look like this
Don't forget to put on your gloves!!!
This is me with my whole head of hair cover in hair dye. Try to get an even spread of product 
YIPPEE! Brown hair!
Good all over coverage
Excuse the massive fringe.
Overall I'm very happy with my hair, changing my hair colour has been playing on my mind a while. Sadly the ombre is gone but I'm going to wait a month or so and then get the ombre back because I think having the ombre effect on my hair give it more texture and definition. 

I have to say I'm quite impressed with the Garnier Olia Permanent Hair Colour, it was easy to use, the smell of the product was actually nice and overall it got rid of my red hair. Their colour choices are a bit limited and not as modern as Loreal Feria but I think this is a good product and has a lot of natural things in it. 

I'll be giving my hair a rest for now and getting it back to a healthy state. Lot and lots of conditioning, hair masks and no heat. Like most girls, I associate changing my hair with a new change in my life. I'm hoping for a change in the winds and also I seem to remember having more fun as a Brunette anyway.
