I dyed my hair many different colours over the years. I went through a bit of phase. One colour I have never tried is grey and I absolutely love the look of grey hair. At the moment it’s very popular and in fashion so I thought while I have got a week off work I’ll try it (so I have some time to dye it back if it went wrong or looked terrible)
My hair is pretty much at its natural colour, it’s a dark blonde, light brown kind of colour but it needed to be lighter for the grey to take. I get scared about putting proper bleach on my hair so whenever I have had to go lighter I always use Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Max Blonde. It lightens your hair by 9 levels. It does make your hair very yellow and orange but you can tone it to make it a nicer colour (I did this in the past when I was blonde) however this time I wasn’t bothered about toning it as I just needed my hair to be a lighter colour. I used two boxes of this dye however after washing it out I realised I’d missed parts of my hair at the back so I bought another box and got Joe to help me with the bits I missed.
Once I had dyed it blonde again I put used two boxes of the Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Dusty Silver. This time I got Joe to help me before I washed it out as its difficult making sure everything is covered. He actually did a really good job of dying my hair.
I am happy with the colour as it’s definitely more grey than silver which is what I wanted, however it’s really weird; when I try to take a picture my hair looks more brown than grey. It does show up a lot better in person than on a photo. I think I might try dying it again and getting the grey to be a bit lighter but for now I’m happy with it; I don’t want to damage my hair too much. It’s taking some getting used to but a few people have said they think it suits me. I’ve washed my hair a few times since dying it and it faded a lot after the first wash. My hair is getting lighter each time I wash it and it’s quite a nice colour. I’m definitely going to try going grey again soon.
