“purple hair anyone?”

published 30/11/2014

Probargain price, gently on my hair

Consnone

Why I bought it I have been dyeing my hair for at least 30 years. Originally just for fun, but now, in my dotage, out of necessity. I have never, in all those years, stuck to a particular brand or colour, just buying whatever takes my fancy in the moment. On this particular occasion I was dyeing...

I accidently dyed my hair a horrendous pillar-box red when I was a teenager and ever since then I promised myself I’d never dye my hair by myself again. I’ve stuck to salons and proper hairdressers since; keen to cover up the ugly natural hair colour I grew into – a weary combination of very dark...

My hair - well what can I say. Long, naturally wavy but I straighten it a lot; my natural hair colour is mousey brown but I have been dying it since my teens in a barrage of colours, browns, reds, purples, blondes in varying degrees and mixtures. My product of choice is Schwarzkopf Live XXL. This...

I bought this on a whim when shopping instore at Tesco. There is a reason why I usually shop online as it prevents me from making impulse purchases. It is said that you shouldn't shop on an empty stomach as that makes you buy more food well I think the same applies for the beauty aisles.... Do...

Schwarzkopf is a huge name in the hair care industry producing hair colourants, shampoo conditioners and styling products.

I have dyed my hair since May 09 and I wanted to have a colour that was different to the common browns and blonde shades. I had my hair dyed with the Garnier Nutrisse colour in the deep burgundy shade but it didn't last long as parts of my hair had gone back to natural colour after a month and...
