Hair Dye: I've Gone Dark! ♥

This past Monday, i decided to dye my hair with hair dye that has been sitting in the back of my desk cabinet for a couple months now.  My sister planted the idea in my brain that i look better with darker hair - she said it goes better with the clothes i wear & it just suits me better - so the seed grew a bit more & a week later i was asking my mom if she would assist me in dying my hair :)

I used Clairol's Natural Instincts Non-Permanent Color in 35 Ebony Mocha (Brown Black) - yes, a non-permanent hair dye - i just can't bring myself to permanently dye my hair!  This is my second time using this exact brand & color, and i've really enjoyed the results both times.  The only problem i really have with it is the blaaaah-color my hair is inbetween dying it & going back to my natural color - which isn't really the hair dye's fault i suppose.
I should add that my natural hair color is a darker blonde/light brown type color and on the side of the hair dye box, it says this shade is recommended to people that have darker hair than me...haha so i do suppose it's my fault that i get that bland inbetween color!

- with flash - sorry for all the frizzies! -
PS - my hair is getting looong


I've gotten soo many compliments on my hair, saying it looks like it was professionally done and that they just love my hair - and i quite like it as well.  One of my friends also got her hair dyed this sort of color because she said she really liked it haha :).
I almost prefer it to my natural hair color, but i still wouldn't permanently dye it dark.  Although i do feel like this dark color makes me seem paler than i already am, i feel like i can get away with more makeup-wise.  I've been wearing darker neutral eyes (oooh, so daring right?!  ;) and brighter pink lipstick, and i really love how it looks.
Look out for some FOTDs with this new hurrrr :)

  18. i'd love to have a different hair colour... the same old gets so boring... but every time i suggest it everyone around me screams NOOOOOOO because apparently having orange hair is very important to my personality. oh dear.
    i am glad you commented on my blog post, sorry it took so long to get back to you :)

  19. Your hair looks really nice darker. I use a semi permenant dye on my hair to get a darker shade of brown too, its SO much less hassel than permenant as you dont get the dreaded roots
