Have a beautiful day and a magical Christmas! xxx
Hi everyone, so as you know I have blonde hair. I decided I wanted a change and long story short I made the stupid decision, or shall I say my hairdresser did, to go back to brunette. It took me a good month to get the blonde I wanted and it was all taken away within 30 minutes. It’s fair to say I was completely gutted when I saw the final look.
Don’t get me wrong I have had the odd compliment but it has been pretty unanimous that I suit blonde far more!
Being a girl…It was really getting me down and I had to do something about! So I took a trip into town to find a miracle! I am on a bit of budget at the moment so I headed to Savers. There were loads of colour strippers but this one caught my eye!
It said “with Organic cucumber and Aleo Vera extracts to sooth and condition the hair”. “Contains no bleach or ammonia”. I thought if this works I may have found the holy grail of turning blonde with minimal damage…and I think I did!!
So the instructions are easy enough to follow. Just a heads up…even if you are hair dying pro make sure you read the instructions because there are a few bits that aren’t like the usual dyes.
Not going to lie…this product stinks!
I separated my hair into sections because my hair was so dark I really didn’t want to miss anything.
The consistency is like any other dye. Slightly runny so nothing special there!
I stuck as plastic bag on my hair. It recommends that you use cling film but I didn’t have any. It seemed to do the same job! The instructions say to leave it on for 30-60 minutes. Of course I went for the 60 minutes. Living on the edge….
I followed the washing instructions. Rinse your hair thoroughly for at least 5 minutes and then use the colour buffer they supply you with and rinse that out for a further 5 minutes. you then shampoo and condition as normal.
My god! The results…Amazing! I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. Maybe a patchy light brown. I washed it out and all that jazz and looked in the mirror. My hair was a really light orange. For a product with no bleach that is brilliant! My hair felt just as healthy as before. All traces of brown were gone and I am well on the way to getting my blonde back! I have dye in my hair as I type so fingers crossed!
So there we have it! If you have tried it let me know what you think!

As many of you know I went from brown to blonde about 7 months back. I am not going to lie it was hard work! I will do a blog post on that process at a later date. Recently I have been getting lots of questions on how i maintain my bleached hair. I would just firstly like to say that this may not work for everyone it’s just how I do it!
1 – Dont wash your hair more than 3 times a week.
Some people find this really gross but it is actually really unhealthy to wash your hair every day. It strips the natural oils out of your hair. Not only will it strip a lot of the colour out but it will dry your hair out so much more. If you are worried about getting greasy hair opt for a dry shampoo. One of my favourits is Batiste. There are so many great ones on that market at the moment. You can actually train your hair so it doesn’t get as greasy as often by leaving it longer and longer every time you wash it.
When it comes to shampoo its really important you pick the right one for you! I have listed a few ones down below that are for more targeted goals. so whether you are trying to get rid of the brassyness, restore the condition or sooth a sore, itchy scalp there just should be one for you!
3 – Conditioner
Conditioning your hair is essential. Especially if you have used bleach. So please don’t skip this step! Your hair is far more prone to snapping off if you don’t use a conditioner! I am not fussy with my conditioner I have never used one that hasn’t done the job.
There are some amazing hair treatments out there! I use mine twice a week as my hair is quite brittle. One of my favorites is Lush’s Marilyn Hair Treatment. It gets rid of all the brassy tones in your hair and leaves it super soft!
[Quick Tip! – After applying your hair treatment wrap it up in cling film to heat up your hair faster!]
I will link some other great hair treatments for blonde hair down below!
This one is a biggy! Once you have got your desired colour and you want to touch up the roots (at home) try not to dye over already blonde hair. Try to avoid the ends and just apply the dye to the roots. IF you have bought a dye kit especially designed for lightening hair it will usually have separate instructions for just root touch ups. Just something to bear in mind!
6 – A few extra tips!
I hope this helped someone out there! Stay tuned for my brown to blonde post! If you have any tips for me please let me know down below!
