This week I noticed my grow out. For most people, that would mean dark roots; for me, it means lighter roots and random grays. I dye my hair with demi permanent color at home. I just don't want to mess with going lighter, and especially the cost of going lighter. It's easy, cheap and I think it's flattering for me. I always am drawn to glossy, dark brown hair!
Anyways, I ordered my favorite dye. It is demi permanent and I go about three months in between colorings. I have all the supplies. It takes me quite some time as I put the color on the roots first, and then painstakingly separate all of my hair and brush on the color. But, it only costs me about $30 a year to keep up.
I use L'Oreal Color Gems in Darkest Natural Brown and love it. It is super dark, but not quite black. This time, I ordered three boxes of the color, one bottle of activator and am going to try out their glossing treatment, the Diamond Gloss. I once had a glossing treatment in a salon, and loved how good my hair felt for about 6 weeks.
Right after I ordered my color, I got this in my Glamour weekly email...proving that demi permanent is the best kind of haircolor to keep natural highlights and keep dark colors from looking flat...
