In all honesty, I don’t know what I’m doing with my hair at the moment. All I can say is that I am truly angry at myself for damaging it so badly and having to have three inches lobbed off. With a band-aid over my heart, I am embracing having super short hair and clinging to the positives of it feeling softer and looking shinier.
After deciding that the ombre had to go due to a lot of breakage and no shine I had my hair cut and decided to embrace the true Hollie as a natural brunette. Having been told by a hairdresser that semi-permanent hair colours had much more depth and shine to them in comparison with permanent colours that are matte, I decided to choose a colour from the Casting Creme Gloss range as their brunette shades are just delicious. After much deliberation between ‘Chocolate Brownie’ which was a smidge too dark and ‘Honey Chocolate’ which was a tiny bit too golden, I went with ‘L’Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in ‘535 Chocolate’‘ a deep red-based brown.
The colourant itself lasts for up to 28 washes and adds a conditioning colour to your hair using no ammonia. The conditioning treatment that comes in the box is amazing as it is infused with royal jelly leaving your hair super conditioned and nourished post colouring.
I’m really happy with the colour as it is a rich, warm brown which I think for winter time suits my skin tone a lot. I’m not sure how long this exact shade will stick around on my barnet but I would certainly use it again.
