Well, I finally plucked up the courage to dye my hair at home...

...and I think it’s come out well! I got DH to do it, using a colour from e:salon.

£14, and I usually pay £90 for a cut and colour. I cut my own fringe for zilch.

I really, really recommend it.

Well done! I've been doing this too and works well (L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss)

I've been dyeing my own hair for 20 years. Never had any issues.

Looks great, you look younger!

Looks lovely.

The blonde was nice but the darker makes you look younger.

Thanks all! The blonde was a result of red washing out over lockdown...I was down to the bleach and had awful roots.

I was worried that red would go glowy at the roots, but it hasn’t. I’d definitely do it again!

You have a cheeky face grin

Looks great!
my hair is currently sitting in a flood of purple dye
Ive always done my own, so much cheaper

Whatusernamecanihave Sat 23-May-20 15:45:38

You look lovely smile love the new colour

AnyFucker Sat 23-May-20 15:46:45

I am letting the grey come through (well, have no choice really)

I have blonde highlighted mousy hair which is damaged on the ends which really needs a cut so daren't do a home dye job as I reckon it would take very patchily

Pinkarsedfly Sat 23-May-20 15:46:51

AnyFucker I’m quite a cheeky person grin

AnyFucker Sat 23-May-20 15:47:38

Not surprised wink

Pinkarsedfly Sat 23-May-20 15:48:22

If I had proper grey I might have done the same, but my natural colour is just weird. I used to be a redhead, and as I’ve aged it’s gone a kind of dirty khaki colour.

Nobody needs to see that.

AnyFucker Sat 23-May-20 15:52:48

Khaki hair confused

Pinkarsedfly Sat 23-May-20 15:54:00

Honestly, even my hairdresser described it as such. It’s just...weirdly greeny browny blonde.

QuentinQuarantino Sat 23-May-20 15:54:10

Looks great OP (and DH!) 👍 You look loads younger and fresher in the after pic.

Megatron Sat 23-May-20 15:56:08

That colour really suits you. smile
