Born a brunette, I’ll always be a brunette (let’s just say I learned my lesson in high school when I made the mistake of dabbling with extreme blonde highlights), but I love my haircolor and wouldn’t change it for the world. That’s why I’m proud to partner with L’Oreal Paris for their “Turn It Up” campaign as their dark haired vixen! I recently used their Healthy Look Crème Gloss to deepen my color a bit and bring it to life. I’m also working with the brand to explore haircolor on my social media channels and their Facebook page in fun, unique ways.
As you know, I don’t normally do at-home hair color, but I do color my hair because my natural shade of brown is a bit on the mousy side. Bland! Since I normally do a single process, it was nice to save a few hundred dollars this month and DIY it! The Healthy Look Crème Gloss only took ten minutes and lasts through 28 shampoos. I used “Iced Chocolate” or 4AR, which was recommended to me after I took the Haircolor Census and used the “Find My Shade Tool” on the L’Oreal Paris FB page, which is a questionairre that helps you find the perfect shade. It gave me a cooler, chestnut brown shade, but nothing drastic, which was just what I was seeking. I felt comfortable using it because it had no ammonia and the after-color conditioner is worth coveting. If you color your hair at home you know what I mean.
Rich, brown hair makes my facial features pop and my hazel eyes look greener. You can get a shade recommendation from the app too and upload before and after photos like I did. One more thing, make sure you don’t miss the coupons. I discuss the Haircolor Census in the video below. Yea, I tell you how I really feel about haircolor stereo-types!
