Live Color XXL in Purple Punk c/o Schwarzkopf
People presume that, as a blogger, I can talk fashion, hair and makeup but when it comes to the latter 2, I know diddly squat. I have never been particularly experimental with either and have stuck with the daily routine I have now since I was about 14 but that doesn't mean I've never wanted to try anything a bit different. I am a firm believer in trying anything once, so when we were asked to try out some coloured hair dye, I got a bit excited! Schwarzkopf have been the most reputable boxed brand ever since I can remember so despite being a little nervous about taking the plunge, I knew I was in safe hands.
This particular dye is designed for lighter hair than mine but due to personal circumstances, I was unable to bleach my hair before applying the colour. There are alternatives for darker hair which I would love to try (here and here) but the thing that attracted me most to Purple Punk is that it is designed to last just 6-8 washes so if I was a little unsure, I knew it wouldn't take long to rectify - the perfect stepping stone for anyone, like me, dying their hair for the first time. I used two boxes for whole head coverage and application was incredibly easy, the whole process took under an hour from start to finish, How's that for a ultra quick make over?!
What do you think of this colour on me? I'm not going to lie, I wasn't expecting to like it this much! But it has definitely encouraged me to look past my boring brown and become a bit more playful with my locks.
