Help!!!!! Grey Hair
Vidal Sassoon Salonist Hair Colour Review
Grey Hair - what wicked witch decided that our hair
should go grey? It is so mean. My natural colour is a brown,
blonde and red mix - quite nice really. Plenty of mix and lots of
shine. On the whole I have this mix however my temples are very
grey. Very grey. I clearly have lots of grey elsewhere but I
can't see them so it doesn't count.
I didn't dye my hair until my late 30's. Mainly due to the fact
I knew I would get it everywhere and the bathroom would be covered in
dye. That frightened the lift out of me -- and the cream carpet in
the bedroom just off the bathroom. I eventually had my hair dyed
for the first time at a hairdressers and continued to go for quite a
Circumstances changed and I could not afford to go to the
hairdressers to have my hair dyed. I plucked up the courage to do
it at home - as I have got a bit older the greys have increased so I now
have to do it if I don't want the greys to show.
I have tried quite a few different brands. The bedroom carpet
has had a few splatters but not too bad. The bathroom clears up
quite well too. Some have been incredibly messy and others not too
bad. Many I have really hated the way my hair feels afterwards.
I have almost waist length hair so I want it to be lovely and shiny
The opportunity arose for me to review the Vidal Sasson Salonist
product. Brilliant. Very excited. The adverts
have certainly sold it up as being a really good hair dye system.
I chose to use one the nearest to the colour I generally choose which
is dark natural blonde -- Yes I have brown hair but this seems to be the
best colour without making it change too dramatically.
Re reading the
leaflet it did not seem as scary as it is clearly written with good
descriptive pictures too. So I set to work.
Here is me during my
experience. No mess. I was quite amazed as generally I get a
splash or two somewhere but nothing ruined this time with the Vidal
Sassoon Salonist colour treatment. Keeping my fingers
crossed the grey goes away too
The 2 stage process is simple. Do the roots first wait 20 minutes,
enjoy 20 minutes pampering time then stage 2 which involves adding serum
to the mix that is left - this is then put through the lengths of hair.
Although I have long hair I used one box of VS Salonist because its
mainly my roots that need the colour but ordinarily if changing colour
then you need to use 2 boxes for hair my length.
Once I had "cooked"
it was time to wash it out. The serum made my hair feel divine, so
silky. Then adding the conditioner too really helped make my hair
easy to brush. It did not make it greasy nor frizzy thankfully
which I was a little worried about but did not need to be.
After giving my hair a date with the hairdryer I unveiled my new hair
Itís more than colour. Itís a work of art. Because
different parts of your hair take in colour differently, Vidal Sassoon
created Salonist, a revolutionary 2-step method that treats your roots
and lengths separately. The result is stunning, seamlessly blended
colour with lots of depth and tones.
As you can see I have plenty of different tones within my hair colour
and my grey has disappeared (for now)
Not often I come back and add to a review. This
one I had too. I cant believe that people have actually
asked me about my hair and my colour. When I have told them it is
the VS Salonist range they are so surprised and have commented that I
have a variety of colours making it so rich and soft.
One very happy customer here.
