I was dye-ing to try it

So I have started February the same way I finished December, (Flat on my back with my legs in the air?) I mean, WITH A NEW HAIR COLOUR. 

I'm sorry, (I'm not) but brown hair is not for me. I lasted a month with brown hair and quite frankly even looking at myself made me sad. (Well, sadder than usual) 

Disclaimer for all those people with brown hair currently thinking, "Rude bitch" If brown hair is your bag, then crack on, I'm not saying YOU don't look great with brown hair, I'm saying I don't. 

I thought I would try a different brand from my usual much loved Adore range. I went back to Directions and used the Cerise which I had never used before. Now I have a serious issue with Directions in the fact that it fades faster than Perez Hiltons popularity but the colour is so bloody beautiful that I will give it a couple of weeks before crying in the corner screaming that life just isn't fair, throwing out all the stained towels and shaving my head. (I've got a back up tub and I'm not afraid to use it) 

The one thing that made me really happy, (apart from cake) is that the cerise went over the brown that I had before, 

Yep. This vibrant over a brown, no bleaching involved AT ALL. That to me is worth it, even if I have to re colour it every week or so, the fact that I can stay away from the bleach for a little longer is definitely a bonus. 

Now I don't know how long I will keep the cerise hair before moving onto a different colour but at the moment I bloody love it. 

What do you think? And if you have any tips for preventing fade and keeping the colour for longer, let me know.

  1. Directions is amazing :) I only recolour every 4-6 weeks when I'm using it, but then I only wash my hair about once a week, and use as cold water as I can stand to shower with.
    Some friends swear by mixing a bit of the dye into your conditioner, but I've always been too worried I'll just get dye all over everything - it's bad enough colouring in the first place.

  2. I feel boring at the minute with my brown hair as well .

  3. This looks amazing! That colour is phenomenal ... unfortunately, my boss is a B and would likely try to fire me if I walked into our far too corporate office with such amazing hair!

  4. I'm a brunette girl (who takes absolutely zero offence to your disliking of brown on your own bonce) who has always loved the idea of having different coloured hair, but has never done it. Probably never will, only because I'm obsessed with hair health, and mine would be ruined if I dyed it. I wear plenty of colours, nails varnishes and lippy to make up for the dark brown barnet.

    Love your hair - it always catches my eye on my Facebook feeds. Keep on colouring it - it is super cool, especially with that purple shade of lippy you had on the first pic.
