Today, I’m reviewing a new hair color line I’ve recently discovered: L’OREAL Paris Colorista! If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the last few months, you may know that I’ve been trying out a couple of different colors from this line. I’ve been trying to get a good idea of its lasting power and color pay off. I think it’s fair to mention that the Colorista hair dyes are not created equal. Some definitely last longer than others.
Before I go any further, I need to explain my hair situation. I have thick, fine, curly hair that has been highlighted, which is why the color shows up on the ends of my hair and not my roots. If you have brunette hair, they have a line of Colorista hair dyes made specifically for you. Since I have only tried the colors for blondes, I don’t know how long those dyes last. Ok, moving on!
After trying a multitude of different hair colors from BLEACH LONDON and having to dye my hair every week to keep my color, I knew that I needed a change in my routine. Once I heard about the Colorista Hair Dyes, I used their Wash Out Shampoo to get the pink out of my hair. WARNING: DO NOT USE THIS if you don’t want to bleach your hair! I had no idea that this product contained peroxide since it is not mentioned on the box and it damaged my hair!
After the pink was washed out, I began dying my hair with the Purple dye. I left it on my damp hair for about 30 minutes without mixing in any conditioner.
Here’s what my hair looked like after I styled it (Forgive the camera quality. I used my iPhone):
