New Hair Color & Blow Out by Aveda

All Black Everything
Like many of you I get bored with my hair very easily and I have been sick and tired of it’s ashy appearance and crazy orange highlights, so I was definitely in need of something new. #BOOM. It hit me. Why not some color? I am no stranger to dying my hair. It’s been jet black, blonde, reddish brown and orange but I have never had color look this shiny, rich and pigmented. My hair feels and smells great too. I am now so very in love with Aveda. Oh, and did I mention the blow-out or styling is complimentary after the session along with a hand and back massage! It wasn’t terribly expensive either for all the service’s that they provided, just $70.00. I might even mess around and try out some their curly girl products too and do some reviews : ) 
Aveda products and salons are great espicially for coloring  because they only use 1-3% of synthetic ingredients in their dye formulas and the are plant based. “Aveda did research into essential oils and plant extracts, and have found and patented a process to oxidize the dye using green tea extract. Not only is the end process less petroleum-based, but the result is more natural looking. The common base formulas for  (harsh) dyes are petrochemical solvents, and in this process Aveda has substituted protective and lubricating plant oils in the formula so that it is significantly less drying to the hair than the solvents normally used.” Read more: here
The Old Color

The stylist actually laughed when she really looked at my hair color. There was red, orange, ashy brown and brown all mixed in together looking crazy. She was really sweet though and I would absolutely go back to her again. 
The Color I Had In Mind
This color is more of a warm, dark-brown because of the red undertone which would probably translate better on my fair skin.  But, I was a dork and too scared to let the stylist mix as much red into the formula as she wanted. SMH. So, it’s my fault. I’m not mad though. This is something new. I feel like my evil twin.
We’ll see how it fades… Maybe it’ll be more of the dark brown that I wanted but until then this is cool. I’m on some 
“If you can’t respect that, your whole perspective is wack. Maybe you’ll love me when I fade to black.”

  1. I had my hair colored at an Aveda salon last month. I was scared as heck and like you, didn’t let the stylist do exactly what she wanted to do. I love the color (my hair was black and she lightened it to a light brown) though. But, what was most surprising is that my hair was so darn soft afterwards. Even after I had cleansed it at home a few times it was still softer than usual. Needless to say, I’m a fan of Aveda color and colorists.
