Schwarzkopf is the cosmetics brand known for their hair care products, namely hair dye.Their adverts depict men and women who have dull heads of hair, then they are transformed into excitable individuals with brightly coloured hair, which apparently lasts.
I've never been won over by their advertising, but they do seem to be the only hair care brand which offers brightest shades.
I thus, purchased a box of the blue-black hair dye because I've been dying tto get back to my natural black. I dyed my hair a golden blonde a year ago, and since washing it out I've got a few patches of lighter brown hair, and frankly I hate it.
Hair colour pre-dye
The dye cost £4.59 and claimed to be permanent, and after a few unsuccessful home-dye kits, I was holding my my breath.
The dye comes with the usual plastic gloves, and advises a patch test at least 24 hours before dying your whole head.
To activate the colour I followed the straight forward instructions and excitedly awaited for the colour to show up.
Anticipation over, once I'd washed the dye out of my hair and conditioned it using the provided 'lock in colour' conditioner, I had look at my dyed barnet. The dye kit was a success, and it seemed every strand was covered.
Two weeks on, and five washes later my hair remains blue-black.
