I've hit the bottle, and it's not even New Years Eve until tomorrow. This is my second dabble with this colour and I have to say I LOVE it. It's a Schwarzkopf shade called burnished red. Being a natural redhead, I've always leaned towards red hair colours if I fancy a bit of a pep up. But this was a big leap towards red even for me! We're talking redder than Elmo with a bad case of the blushes. But it seems to make everything else just "pop" in the way that only a good colour combo can. I've been gagging to try some vintage hairdos but have steered clear until now, because I always think they look a bit frumpy on me (I'm not really cool enough to carry it off, lol!) but think this colour should really give them the edge I need to make them work for me.
It's very easy to apply and processes in 30 mins. It does take AGES to rinse and the water still runs a little pink for the next couple of washes (so use dark towels for a week or so!) The gloss factor is fantastic, but it does fade relatively quickly, although it's still a very vibrant colour even after it's faded. I'm anticipating having to do it every 8 weeks or so to maintain. But, I have definately found my signature shade. So happy new hair to me, and Happy New Year to you...! (Oh, and if you happen to know of any good vintage hair styling blogs and feel like sharing, please let me know!)
