Stage 1: Auburn Base
Preface. I've been wanting to have red hair since I was little, but never grew big enough balls to actually go through with it. That and the whole notion of bleaching my hair and doing the whole process wasn't worth it to me. HOWEVER, as late as I am to the party Garnier has come out with their Ultra Color line made specifically for dark/black hair. I think this first came out like several years ago *facepalms*.
I was a bit of a skeptic since my hair is sooo dark....like....the night..dark lol. But low and behold! IT WORKED!!! Well, kinda.
Results. My hair did not turn out as vibrantly, "fire engine" red like it is in the box, which i'm actually quite glad because I was aiming for a more red/violet mahogany color. I never knew this 'til now, but I guess my hair has more of a cooler undertone.... Woohoo!!
For Stage 2, I plan on layering another more true red color on top to add more dimension. Hopefully it'll turn out more vibrant, but not obnoxiously red. *fingers crossed*
Verdict. I really LOVE this product by Garnier and HIGHLY recommend it to those who want to experiment with color on their dark hair. Results may vary depending on the individual's hair.
