Clairol Nice'n easy hair dye - Natural Lighter Golden Brown

I've been dying (haha) to dye my hair for months now; I seem to have mislaid the memory of the last previous hair dying session because it's been a bronze-like brown for a good four to six months (or so - who knows).  I remember months back my friends were commenting on my hair colour and all I could think was "what ...what's so different?" and since the sun has been shining I've realised it's not even my unhealthy brown that they were seeing it was some other type of brown only a dye could create.  So it was bugging me all this time and I've never been a fan of this type of brown; it's very 'Cherry back at high school' and it's way to warm for my liking.  I also know if I give it too long in the sun it will turn bright orange - so something HAD to be done.

I scoured the shops for a type of brown I have never tried and also decided I would try a different brand just to push my limits to the max!  First, let's show you my cam whoring pictures and then we shall discuss the outcome! 

Below are pictures of literally yesterday, pre-unknowingly-coloured:

  Can you see that the brown you catch in the sunlight is very light and bronze?  Compared to my Sister's hair in the last picture, it's very brown despite in some pictures it seems black.

Below are pictures of the new hair colour! 







What's different about nice'n easy compared to the previous hair dyes I'm used to is the colour-blend technology.  You can see that each picture shows a slightly different tone and my whole family agree that its lighter on the top and darker at the ends.

I didn't know how to feel about this because I'm so used to it being one block colour but I've decided I really like it.  I love that it gleams in the sun and my hair looks more interesting now.  The colour wasn't as light as I was hoping for but as all us brunettes know, it's hard to achieve a brighter colour without bleaching our hair.  This is the closest a hair dye has to getting it to the colour I wanted and it's very similar to what is predicted on the box.

The one thing I have to say about this hair dye is that it PARTICULARLY smells violent; the smell is extremely strong and almost burned my throat sore.  I would urge anyone to open plenty of windows and doors when using this product.

More hair updates soon as I'm getting my hair cut on the 5th of July!  In the mean time, tell me what you think and what you would suggest if I wanted to go even lighter next time!

I used nice'n easy the other day and i have to agree about the throat burning eye stinging fumes. It really made my eyes water and my chest hurt.. which is a shame due to the great quality and colour payoff the dye has. Maybe thats just the sacrifice i'll have to make.

The colour looks great on you, i especially like the colour at your roots. x
