Hi guys ! Happy Monday . How was your weekend ? I had the most chill weekend with family and the kiddo playing and just relaxing.
Two weeks ago Rubybox sent me the Clairol Color Crave in Orchid to try out. I was really excited to give this a go as I am a little clueless what I want to do with my hair this year. The Clairol Color Crave range has 6 fun colourful colours that work on blond and brunette hair. What I love that no bleaching is required but the lighter your hair the longer the wear time.
It's pretty easy to use too - wet hair ... apply with the brush for a easy paint on application ... wash and voila. No mixing is required (this is a direct dye formula ) and I love the funky black gloves that comes with the set. I left my colour on for 20 minutes - but you can easily leave it a little longer for a brighter look.
This range is paraben , peroxide and ammonia free. The formula claims to have no fade colour surprises and last 15 washes. As I mentioned on the blog before ... I do wash my hair mostly everyday. So far I really love my results. My hair is noticeable darker - but I love that since I had blonder highlights still visible in my hair how amazing the colour results look. I wasn't expecting to be blown away and love the colour as much as I am currently doing. It does wash away evenly. On lighter hair the colour will last a little longer - and I can definitely see that is true but this isn't too in your fave purple - I actually feel this colour is so me.
I'm not quite at the 15 washes mark - but the last photo in this collage is on day 12 ... and as you can see the main colour is lighter .. but the purple is still pretty visible in the lighter blonder parts. After 7 washes I did notice a quite significant fade - but the colour was still there . I do love the shade options - but I feel I can see myself using the Orchid again . The boxes retail for R124,90 at Dischem. My hair didn't feel dried out after colour or the week of colouring - my hair was soft , nourished and looked amazing.
The colour ranges and my before ... after and after 7 washes photos :
Overall ... as I mentioned I'm really loving the purple ... the colour worked fantastic on my highlighted hair ... and I felt it gave it an overall pretty impressive end result in tone. I might even try the Flamingo pink shade too - but I feel the purple is so me .
Would you switch up your hair colour if it meant no damage to your hair ??
Product was sent for review but thoughts are all my own
