Vidal Sassoon Salonist Hair Dye Review

I was recently sent some hair dyes from Vidal Sassoon to review from Supersavvyme.co.uk's Savvy Circle. There were 4 packs in total 1 for me and 3 for me to pass on to friends and family. I chose purple for my hair as i haven't been purple for quite some time.



So off i set about dying my hair - the Vidal Sassoon Salonist features a 2 part application process to treat the roots and lengths separately as done in salons.

First you will need to mix the colour together in the bowl using the brush provided (make sure you have your gloves on, i found them to be slightly on the snug side though)

Next you need to brush the mix on to the roots tarting with the hairs natural parting and working your way round to the back. ( i found this slightly trickt do do on my own as you need to part it into lots of sections and obviously you cant see the back of your head!)

You need to make sure that you only use the mix up to the line on the bowl as the rest is for the lengths. Mix in the serum and cover the lengths of your hair with it. Leave the dye to set for the recommended time, rinse and you're done!

This is the results after colouring, not a great pic but i was very
happy with the results, the depth of the colour and the overall
coverage were great.

Unfortunately for me, by week four the purple colour has faded and i am now back to a gingery colour but with purple roots! Luckily for me though, i like to be weird so i am keeping my purple roots and gingery lengths :D




No one else who used the other packs have experienced this or any sort of colour fading out since using them, guess i either got a dodgy pack as i followed all the instructions OR i just have weird hair :p 


Overall i would rate this product on my experience alone at a 2 out of 5 
- I like the 2 stage application process
- Applying the colour to the roots is tricky to do on your own
- The initial colour was great
- The colour faded too quick
- The smell is not too harsh

#2 - Enjoy a coffee and millionaires shortbread 



So i met up with an old friend on Friday and we took a trip to Holkham with the puppies while the kids were in school, it was nice to have a catch up and a lovely walk along the beach and through the woods but it was even nicer to get into the beach cafe and in front of the fire to warm up with coffee and cake :)
