Fall to me means cooler weather, darker colors and change. I love fall more than I can express to you in words. I also love changing my hair….probably more than I can express to you in words. From the cut to the color, I love it all. In fact, I don’t think I’ve showed you any pictures of me since I cut my hair. So, here you go. This is about 3 inches gone and I love it.
Although I love my cut, I hate my color. There’s not even a name for this color, except maybe “over-processed, sun bleached, heat-style-it-every-day-until-it’s-suuuuper-dry” color. That’s a color right? Well, it was my color until the glorious, wonderful Madison Reed at home hair color entered my life.
(Read until the end for your 50% off code!!)
I knew I wanted to go darker, but I just don’t always trust at home hair color. It can be scary and the last experience I had fried my hair. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but after I rinsed out my color my hair was so dry and brittle I wanted to shed tears. So I just left it alone and let the grays (sigh) move on in and get comfortable, while my dark roots grew in.
Yep, it was time for a change and Madison Reed was just the hair color up for the job.
The hair color system comes to you in a beautiful purple box filled with lovely things. As you can see in the picture above, it’s not your average hair color. It comes with a barrier cream, gloves, a cap, shampoo, conditioner and of course the ingredients to mix your color. When I opened the box I was immediately surprised by the amazing smell. It didn’t smell like chemicals! It smelled like natural hair products.
Madison Reed at home hair color is a system that delivers healthier hair color that works for you. It’s Ammonia, Resorcinol, and PPD-Free, with No Parabens added. It contains nature’s best ingredients which means improved performance, healthier hair and a vibrant color. They guarantee salon-quality results and after my experience, I would 100% have to agree with that! My hair color looks fantabulous…if I do say so myself!
Would you like an after shot? Okay, let’s do a before again…
And now after…
Ta-daaaaa! I’m a brunette you guys! And I absolutely love it! I’ve colored my hair at home before a darker shade and it turned out…well, kind of red. RED. The results from Madison Reed are dark and rich. How does my hair feel? Healthy, soft and like I just came home from the salon.
Usually when I color my hair, I have no real plans for what to do while I wait for the color to set. Why is that!? Why not turn it into a spa-like experience at home. So I did!
(First I snapped a picture of me in my cute little cap. HI!)
Now it’s time for relaxation…For me that’s a glass of red wine, a little snack and a movie. Today it was my favorite movie – “The Holiday”. Since we’re SO close to Christmas. Ha! This was some “me time” at its best! I love that I can use salon quality hair color and enjoy some pampering in the comfort of my own home. I am doing this every time I color my hair from now on!
