I chose Garnier's Nourishing Foam (Permanent) in Iridescent Mahogany which has a nice red tint to it. I found the foam so easy to use and it took me about 10 minutes to apply it fully all over my hair, just like I apply shampoo as the instructions say. It says it should be left on for 30 minutes but on the advice of my friend who dyes her hair a lot, I left it on for an extra 5 minutes. It says that this dye has a 'Fruity Scent' LIE! It smells horrible and gave me a bit of a headache during the 35 minutes but once it was off the headache faded. I would highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't dyed their hair before because it is so easy!
Left; Before. Right; After
Just to start, I didn't change the length of my hair, I took the 'After' picture today in natural light so you can see the change better. As you can see there is only a little difference in the two, my hair is a little lighter and has more of a red tint too it now. In hindsight I wish I had picked up the red shade instead of mahogany so it was a bit more noticeable but as I said, in 6 weeks I will be changing it big time! hahaaaaa!
