Favourite new hair colour

I’m a box-dye-kind of a girl and I’ve never had my hair coloured by a professional hair stylist. I’ve also never gone much lighter or darker than my natural dark brown hair. The darkest I went was black a few years ago, it made me look like emo and the colour took forever to grow / wash out.

I used to use one of Garnier’s home hair colours and then they discontinued my favourite colour – bummer. So a few months ago I found myself looking for a new brand and colour to try out when I discovered L’oreal’s Excell 10 (my preferred colour is 515). What attracted me to this specific brand was 1) the colour was a deep and lively brown and 2) you only need to leave the dye on for 10 minutes. Colouring your hair at home is already such a mission so if the time spent waiting for the dye to work it’s magic can be reduced, I’m happy.

For me, the colour of this specific dye is best after a few washes. Straight after dying my hair, the colour is a bit too dark but after a few washes it’s a gorgeous, deep brown. What I like about the 515 is that it is so close to my natural colour that if there is regrowth, you can barely see it. I sometimes go up to 4 or 5 months of not colouring my hair and most people don’t even notice when I do eventually touch up my colour. I have a natural red shine in my hair and the dye seems to bring it out. If you’re looking for a new hair colour or you want to try out at-home hair colouring, I can recommend L’oreal’s Excell 10. Definitely one of my favourite hair products! 🙂
