I have only dyed my hair once, and it was only the tips. I had to bleach the ends and dyed them pink for breast cancer. The bleach killed my hair, and the color faded incredibly fast. I’ve never dyed my hair another shade because I could never get my natural color back from a bottle. My natural hair color isn’t black, despite what you might see. It’s dark brown that sometimes turns reddish with faint blonde streaks in the sun. Of course, I’ve tinted my hair with purple, pink, and blue with Manic Panic dyes. But it’s only temporary, the hues only show up faintly in the light on my dark hair.
Garnier just released a new hair color product. For those of you interested in dying your hair bright colors without the long term commitment, this is for you. Garnier Color Styler comes in five shades and can be used on all hair types and colors. The color is clay based and can be applied in six easy steps. Plus, it doesn’t damage your hair. You apply the color to dry hair, and there is no rinsing involved. I’ve never gotten bright colors to pop on my dark hair, but I will definitely be trying this out in several colors. The color runs about $7, and can be found online on their site or at your local drugstore or Target. I will try this out in the next week or so, and post again with the results. I’m so excited for this product from Garnier!
