Where did my hair go & Kruidvat permanent dye review
Do you know that buzzing feeling sometimes when you just NEED something to change?
My hair was feeling limp and looking brassy anyway from the coloring before, it’s still strawberry blonde underneath.
It kept bunching up in giant knots, literally two giant knots on the sides of my head.
Just not good.
And so I chopped almost half off again!
Excuse the bags, it was extremely late – AM.
It was greasy but can you see the brassy tint?
And no volume, etc etc.
To warm it back up (and in the prospect of a future dying session hehe. :D) I chose a red toned brown.
Or at least I was hoping for a red toned brown, you can never be sure with drugstore coloring can you..
Add the liiime to the coconut..
Well the colorant to the developer.
And don’t drink it all up…
So shake it up!!
Then apply with the pointy tip, which is super handy!!
After applying I watched Mad Men for 30 minutes, rinsed it out, washed my hair and applied the conditioner that came with it.
And then the next morning..
TUM TUM TUMMMM…. Drumroll…
In the sunlight:
Awful… but then again what to expect with chemical dyes.
Opening up a window was needed.
I prefer the smell of my natural dyes by FAR!
So extremely runny.
The packaging says creme coloring but it’s more like water coloring…
I’m used to actual thick creams that spread over the hair easily.
This made me wonder if I was even going to cover all of my hair halfway through the bottle because it just seemed to dissapear.
In the end I did only need one pack, but I didn’t feel like the hair was really covered up..
I wasn’t even able to stick it to my head, it just sort of hung down.
Stop the rant, anywho: not a fan of the formulation!
Very high covering power, my hair absorbed the pigment extremely fast.
None to report!
Yes, very much.
Especially with the conditioner after.
I’ll update you on that!
All in all
- It doesn’t stain
- Great coverage
- Filled my hair up nicely, to make it plump and voluminous again (it bounces!!)
- Hair looked healthy and shiny after
- Inexpensive (plus there’s often deals on these)
- Easy applicator
- Washes out very easily after coloring, you won’t need to hang upside down for half an hour
- That’s one giant ingredient list.
- The applicator was easy to use, but the product itself wasn’t
- Gas mask required
This dyeing session set me back 5 euros.
For that price I can sniff past the smell.
This was a great pick me up for my hair!
I look decent again, HA!
And I just can’t stop touching it..
Have you tried any of the Kruidvat dyes? What did you think of the formulation?
