beauties, i am exposing myself quite a bit here. first of all, i'm letting you see this before (above) picture of me (my rule is that i don't style my hair before it gets cut or colored. after seeing this picture, though, i'm quite seriously considering amending that rule). i'm also confessing in this post that i used at home hair color. i haven't used at home color in about a year, but because i love you all i wanted to be able to give clairol's perfect 10 a serious review and i couldn't do that without trying it myself.
my color is a mix of two shades - the light auburn and the dark auburn. jason backe, clairol's celeb colorist, informed me that it is totally fine to mix two shades when you are coloring at home, just like they do in the salon, to get your desired effect (nice tip, huh?). i think it turned out i hoped it would (check the color in the below/after picture).
what i liked about perfect 10 over both other at home color and salon color was that it works in 10 minutes. almost as soon as you finish applying it, it's time to wash it out. i absolutely hate having to sit around with my hair color setting, and usually unwittingly dyeing half the things in bathroom in the process. and on another note, you really can't beat the price difference between at home color and salon color.
see if clairol has your shade here.
