Must have Hair Dye: Garnier Nutrisse

I have dark hair - so dark it looks black. Growing up, I was always into experimenting with my hair color. I had caramel highlights, reddish brown highlights, super black, and brown hair. I went to expensive salons, cheap salons, and  tried at home coloring boxes. Finally, for the past 4 years I have found something that works for me - gives me a little bit of a fun lighter color, is very cheap, and doesn't damage my hair! Having had highlights, this is something I will never do again. The bleach did nothing but ruin my hair. On top of that, the maintenance involved in going that light is just too extreme and expensive. Now all I use is Garnier Nutrisse in Truffle. This can be bought for around $8, but there is always a coupon or sale around! Nutrisse is fail proof. Since the color I choose is only a couple shades lighter than my own hair, the end result is very close to the box. Believe it or not, I only dye my hair 2-3 times a year! This, along with deep conditioning, not using flat irons, and using a heat protectant has allowed me to have healthy, shiny, long hair.

One tip for those of you that dye at home is to not wash your hair for 2-3 days before dying- this will allow the color to penetrate better. I would also wait a day or two after dying your hair to wash it again with shampoo. Protect your hair from the sun and deep condition frequently!

Here is a picture of my freshly done color:

  7. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance. I must say you've done a
    fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for
    me on Safari. Superb Blog!

  9. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an
    established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting
    up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thank you

  10. Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours require a massive amount
    work? I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary every day. I'd
    like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  11. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I'd
    certainly appreciate it.
