As I write the first part if this post I am eagerly waiting on the mail.
Why you ask?
Because I’m expecting an exciting delivery.
As a bit of background to my hair story I shall give you a brief summary of my ups and downs.
I was born a natural redhead and spent the first 20 years of my life bring told never to dye my hair as it was so unique.
I centered my whole physical identity around being a redhead. When I reached the age of 20 I decided I wanted a change, although not quite brave enough to change the colour completely, I opted for using Henna.
I brought the Henna in a powder form (I shall write a more in depth review + my recipe on this).
And after a grueling 4 hours my hair was a gorgeous, bright, coppery colour I was beyond happy. But tine went on, and the colour built up and I decided i wanted another change.
I had a friend training to ve a hairdresser and she decided to gift me with her wisdom and dye my hair for me.
It was a disaster.
My hair turned BLACK!
I cried myself to sleep that night and truly felt like ny whole self worth had been torn away. (Silly I know).
So that brings us to today
After 6 weeks of this colour, and some fading iam going to try out the DGJ hair colour remover.
Here is the blurb from their website.
” With Organic Cucumber and Aloe vera extracts to soothe and condition the hair after treatment.
DGJ Organics Colour Remover is the safest and most effective way to remove artificial hair dye. It works by shrinking the artificial dye molecules in the hair, enabling you to simply wash them away. DGJ Organics Colour Remover does not touch your natural hair pigment so you are left with the colour which lay beneath your artificial shade.DGJ Organics Colour Remover will return your hair to its natural colour if the artificial hair colour applied is darker than your natural level. If the artificial hair colour applied is lighter than your natural colour, the natural pigment within your hair has been chemically lightened. Although DGJ Organics Hair Colour Remover will remove the artificial dye, you will still notice your natural hair colour has lightened. In this situation (and to re-create your natural shade) simply select a hair colourant close to your own natural depth and tone.“
This all sounds so promising. So i decided to show you guys my progress and I will update this post and photos as I go.
So it is now 9.30pm and I have just applied the first step of the process.
The applicator bottles were easy to use and had a surprisingly good anount.
I brought two boxes as I usually need both for my thick hair! But to my surprise one bottle was more than enough.
I am sitting by the heater with cling film on my head.
I have decided to leave the formula on for the max time suggested which is 60mins.
~ 1 hour later.
Okay so the removal process was very easy, I shaved ny legs while rinsing the product out as this made the 10 mins go a lot faster!
Don’t rush the rinsing as the last thing you want is for the dye to reoxidise and your hair to darken again.
After conditioning my hair it did feel a bit dry, but this is to be expected and I just did a deep moisturizing treatment.
~ So it is now the next day and iam over the moon!
For only £12 in Amazon, this product has done exactly what countless hairdressers have failed to do.
The only con about the whole process was the smell, a bit like rotten eggs.
Hello natural hair colour!
As you can see my hair is now about 4 shades lighter and almost exactly the colour I had as a child.
I would 100% recommend this product to you all!
And its organic to which earns big points.
Recycle the box guys 🙂
Lots of love
