I held off writing this review last year because I felt like it would come across like I was bashing this company/salon. This is not the case, but I do want to write a review for some hair extensions I tried that just didn’t work for me. In the interest of full disclosure, I entered an Instagram contest with my then salon, Bad Apple, to win a hair cut and hair extensions for their relaunch event for free. I was lucky enough to win, eeeek, I never win anything! I was so excited because my hair at the time was relatively short and I thought this would be a fun way to change things up.
I’d never really considered getting extensions before and just entered the competition on a whim, but here we go….
I’ve had my ginger hair for two years and I’ve been contemplating a change for a while, so this past month I took the plunge!
Red hair is notorious for being difficult to maintain! It’s very quick to fade and that makes dyeing a frequent occurrence. The colour I wanted to go for was something more wintry, I wanted more of a red/cherry shade. After spending quite some time in the dye aisle of Superdrug, I picked up Garnier Olia Dark Garnet. I have used the same brand but the 7.4 shade and quite liked it. I felt that my hair was a lot less dry after colouring so I thought I would definitely give this one a whirl.
So as my birthday present to myself, I decided to finally go to a salon and get my hair dyed. As stated in a previous post, I have a crazy obsession with Kate Beckinsale’s hair. It’s just so perfect !!! So after months of having a photo on my phone that I have been dying to recreate.
