Hi lovelies! So if any of you who have/are colouring your hair with red tones to it will know that even with the best colour treated shampoo, the red is very fast to fade and is in need of regular application of hair dye. A few months ago I posted a review on the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss hair dye (which you can read here) and shockingly this is the last time that I dyed my hair.
I thought that with going on holiday, dying my hair before would be a complete waste of time what with all the pool dipping and bleaching of the sun on my hair. So now I'm back in the UK, I decided that my hair was in need of a hair makeover and I thought I would share with you the colour results. Last time I used the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss I opted for shade 550 Mahogany, but I was wanting something I little bit darker this time so went for 360 Black Cherry
As with any hair dye you get, there is always the colour chart that's printed on the back or side of the box. Although we all use this a guideline very rarely does the colour actually match the finishing result. But I have to say that the colour 360 Black Cherry on my hair pretty much looked like how it did in the colour chart below. Before dying my hair, I would say my colour was matched to the brown colour you see in the picture below and it came out a little bit darker than whats shown in the picture... result!
As for the contents of the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss you get your trusty protective latex gloves (which are made of giant hands), intensive colour conditioner, and the actual hair dye parts A and B and a nozzle applicator. And of course not to forget your step by step hair dye guide.
I have to say beauties, that my thoughts of the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss match those of my previous review. The application of this dye is super easy and with the squeezy bottle and nozzle applicator I found applying it to the hair very easy and mess free.
Please remember though beauties, if your thinking about using any hair dye to do a small test of your skin before hand to make sure you have no bad reactions to the dye; You will find just how to do this in the instructions.
So for the results.
First off let me show you just how my hair looked before application
Please excuse my cheerleading clothes, but it was the only picture I had showing the back of my hair! Any beauty blogger will know that if your on your own taking a picture from behind is not easy!
As you can see my hair has gotten really light and there is a lot of natural Blonde highlights which I got from Turkey's super hot sun!
So this is the colour of my hair after application
These were taken in natural daylight and as you can see there is a nice even and full coverage. However the camera is is not picking up my true hair colour in these pictures as it is a much darker and deeper shade of red than whats shown here.
However this picture was taken on a lot later in the day and as you can see the colour is appearing much darker which is a much more true representation of what my hair colour is like after applying the L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss hair dye.
For those of you wondering why I choose L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss? Well the answer is because I find the application very easy, I'm left with super glossy hair and I find that the colour lasts much longer than what it does with other hair dyes.
