In my teens and 20’s, I used to dye my hair because it was fun and I liked switching up my hair color. Now, I pretty much do it because I have to. You know, gray hairs and just an overall dullness has seemed to be the norm as I age. These days, I color my hair as kind of an upkeep/maintenance type thing. Like, if you haven’t been to the salon in longer than usual, people start to notice? haha! Well, going to the salon every 8 -10 weeks gets expensive. It also is just another appointment in the sea of endless appointments that I have to make and keep. Which, when you’re a mom can be hard to manage sometimes.
At times, I just like to take matters into my own hands. Which is why I was so excited to find the Schwarzkopf line of hair color at my local Walmart store. On occasion, I will go to the salon for a color, but the majority of the time I like to do it myself at home. (Who doesn’t like saving time AND money?) I ended up choosing the shade 3.8 Velvet Brown which is a medium brown with warm undertones. It’s slightly darker than my current hair color, but I was going for a subtle, refreshed look.
The Color Ultime line has a bunch of vibrant fashion shades available. Maybe one day when I’m not so chicken I will pick up a more fun color! Another thing that had me excited was that this line delivers shiny color, which is something my dull hair desperately needed. It also promises long lasting color, plus it comes with the best smelling after color treatment conditioner to help the color last.
Here is a little video that I made showing how easy it is to color your hair at home. If you don’t want to watch the video, just keep scrolling for my before & after. ↓
Schwarzkopf Hair Color Before & After
It’s a little bit difficult to see the difference in my hair color from my forward facing photo, so I decided to show you one from the top of my head. My results were definitely on par with what the box claimed I would get, so that makes me happy! I always love my freshly colored hair. Not only does it just look better in general, it also helps to make my thin hair appear slightly fuller.
Here is my completed hair style after I colored & curled my hair. I really love my color result, and that fact that the process is so easy to do at home makes it even better!
