Takes a brave woman to post dirty hair and a naked face!
I mixed Wella Koleston 309/1 (which is their level 9 ash blonde) 1:1 with a 9% peroxide (30 Volume). I wanted to use a level 8 (one shade darker than the 9), but I had some leftover 9 at home and didn't want to go to the store!
I left the dye on for about 35 minutes, then rinsed, treated, blowdried and voila!
Slightly brassy at the roots but I'm so pleased it lifted as well as it did!
The camera flash makes my hair look much lighter than it actually is, although it has lightened a bit from the last time
I used a bleach pre-lightener the last time I did my regrowth. So I was glad that the dye managed to lighten my hair enough on it's own because my hair has always been super stubborn when it comes to lightening. I didn't want to use bleach again because it takes more time since I have to lighten and then use a toner on top and, unlike bleach, dye won't lift over hair that has already been dyed so I don't have to worry about over lapping. And also I'm trying to grow my hair out so the less bleach the better!
I've washed it a couple times now and the brassiness has really gone down. PHEW.
Any hair adventures for you kids this week?
