My First Home Hair Dye Experience

A few weekends ago I took what was quite a big step for me and dyed my hair at home, on my own.  Now it’s a big deal because I’ve never done my blonde out of a box before.  Since I was 16 I’ve visited the hairdressers at least four times a years for root touch ups or to have a new shade ran through.  I’ve always been very nervous when it comes to blonde as I know from experience that it can go horribly wrong (my yellow hair circa 2003!)

For my first home hair dye, I used the L’Oreal Recital Preference in the colour 7.3 Florida (I promise I picked it on the colour of the models hair on the box and not the shade name!)  Fast forward to the end of the video and I’m actually really pleased with the results.  I found that it wasn’t as traumatic experience as I thought it was going to be!  It was so simple to do although I will admit it was difficult to get all the back myself.
Would i do it again?  Yes I probably would (and would probably go for a lighter shade) but I don’t think I’ll be giving up all my trips to the hairdressers just yet.  I do really like the idea of spending less however, even if it is only for some temporary results.  Have you ever dyed your hair blonde from a box?
