Hair Dye FAIL

Hey Guys!

So it’s been 3 weeks since my last post and I’m sorry about that, just had a lot going on with school and stuff! But today I thought I would tell you about a recent home dying experience that I had. You might be expecting bright orange hair or something but actually it’s the opposite. Literally nothing happened. It might seem a bit irrelevant to put up a post about something that didn’t work but if any of you guys are thinking about dying you hair at home I just wanted to say that I don’t recommend this product!

So first off I tried L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss in Sweet Honey last summer. I did everything right, left it on or the advised amount of time but the results were disappointing. My hair was the exact SAME colour as before. However I just thought that the shade had been too dark because I bought one close to my own hair colour as I was afraid to go too blonde.

I left it for a while and then I decided during the Christmas holidays that I would try again. So I bought a box of L’Oreal Casting Crème Gloss in Iced Blonde. The reason I went back to the same brand is that I had heard it was supposed to be good and, as I said, I thought I just bought the wrong shade the first time.

I did the patch test however I never actually dyed my hair beore going back to school. I wanted to dye it during the holidays just incase anything went wrong so I waited until midterm. I bought a new box then (except Light Iced Blonde because they didn’t have and Iced Blonde) and tried again. However the results were the same. My hair remained the dark blonde colour it had already been.

This might have seemed like a bit of a pointless post but I just wanted to share this frustrating experience with you guys! Has this ever happened to any of you? Or do you have any reccomendations for at home hair dyes that actually do work? If so please leave them in the comments section below!
