New Hair Colour: From Platinum to Pearl.

I've been using the same blonde hairdye (Live Colour XXL by Schwarzkopf in Absolute Platinum) for the past 8 years now. Recently, despite my hair being in good condition, it's decided to never take any brassy tones out and is leaving me with different patches of colour. Super annoying!

So I went on a mission to find a different shade and came across this one:

Pearl Blonde - L'oreal. 
BEFORE: As you can see I have brassy tones in my fringe, even though I shampoo with a toner it's been driving me wild recently, it never used to be so brassy!
AFTER: As the dye was taking to my hair it was turning a purple colour. After I washed and dried my hair it was almost a silver blonde.
I can definitely see why its called Pearl Blonde.
The photo's don't really do it that much justice, I really like the change and its so much brighter. 
I'm really not sure why after using the same dye for many years my hair decided to turn a bit brassy when it never did for years before but I like my little change. I'm sure I'll get bored in a couple weeks and end up putting a lilac or peach in it again!

What hair dyes do you use? Do you do it yourself or go to the hairdressers?

Hope you had an awesome weekend!

  16. Although a professional colorist may charge between 10% and 15% more for organic haircolor than chemical based haircolor, the results will be a more vibrant, healthier, shinier, and longer lasting color that does a superior job at covering resistant great hair.
