My color was fading A LOT so I decided to dye it again last Friday. I used the same color, but I know I didn’t keep it in my hair long enough to get the actual color I was suppose to. I only used one box and I concentrated mainly on the top half of my head where my hair was the lightest shade of brown(where I had my bleach accident) and didn’t focus much on the bottom half of my hair or underneath. I massaged it into my hair & left it in for 20 minutes, rinsed & shampooed.
It turned out the way I wanted it to 🙂 A medium/dark brown that’s a little lighter on the bottom. Some of my old highlights underneath are still visible.. and I really like that. I’m thinking about adding a small handful of golden blonde highlights underneath my hair.
This was my hair after BEFORE i dyed it:
I liked it but it was fading fast and my roots were growing in really dark.
I also purchased a pack of extensions from my local Sally’s Beauty Supply. I got the Euronext Remy 18 inch Clip-Ins in Dark Brown. It was $89.99 or $79.99 if you have a club card. This is the 2nd time purchasing these. I had trimmed my older ones and they are now the same length as my hair since it has grown. I really like them. They feel natural, last a long time, you can color them (I’ve highlighted them and they still stayed good), they are light weight and the clips stay in my hair very well (I’ve had bad clips that would slip right out). I had them previously when my hair was a lot shorter and I thought that there wasn’t enough hair & it looked stringy in my hair. So I would always put my hair halfway up in a clip so you couldn’t tell. But this time around it blended so nicely and it was a perfect amount. It comes with 8 pieces.. a few longer rows and a few 1 1/2″ strands. It’s a good amount of hair and I used all of the strands because my hair is so thick.
For reference, I’ve also purchased Satin Strands a few times and I like them too, but you have sew in your own clips, they’re heavier and in my past experience they would always go flat. I did like them though, but their color choices for brunettes is kind of poor. I have also purchased Sassy extensions and It was a complete waste of my money because they are incredibly thin & I doubled the tracks and they were still too thin. It looked like thin strands coming from my hair. I ended up tossing them after 1 use.
My best friend has tried all of the brands that Sally has to offer and she agrees Euronext are her favorite. In addition from the brands I tried, she tried the Revlon ones (which turn to ratty barbie hair after a few uses) and the Paris Hilton extensions (which also turn to ratty barbie hair after a couple uses).
Here’s a picture with them clipped in and curled with my flat iron.
