Another Bad Hair (Dye) Day

I decided to go a little lighter with my hair for the summer and thought of highlights, but I don’t care for the high cost and maintenance of highlights. I normally use L’Oreal hair dyes, and I’m pretty good at picking out the right colors so I don’t end up having to go to a professional. L’Oreal has put out some new “Sunkissed Caramels” on the market that are supposed to make hair appear to be “sunkissed” or somewhat highlighted. This one, called “hi-lift  gold brown” is specifically for dark hair – dark brown and black – and promises no brassiness that boxed dyes often do to dark hair.

I thought that this $7.99 deal was the answer to the expensive and high maintenance highlighting issue. What my hair turned out to be was nothing near what the box promised. Brassiness didn’t even begin to describe my new ‘do. I could have passed for Mrs. Ronald McDonald.

Luckily, I was able to cover this one up with a neutral dark brown the following day. Loreal Sunkissed Caramels for dark hair? Unless you want this to happen to you, I would rate this as highly NOT recommended.

  1. I bought this kind a couple wks ago, and it turned out pretty good! It still has that freshly dyed color. When I buy hair color I make sure that the box hasn’t been previously opened, and make sure that the bottles match the product. There have been a few times when they have different bottles. It seems some ppl like to switch the bottles!!
