For years I had bright red hair.. until one day I decided it was time to be a grownup and go for something a little bit more natural and a hell of a lot easier to maintain. But every now and then I long for interesting coloured locks… which is why semi-permanent hair dyes are the best invention.
The undertones of my hair are quite warm and red, so blues and greens don’t suit me. But pinks, reds and coppers really suit it… which made me think that peach would probably work well too (and I was right).
The product I used to create the look above was L’Oreal Colorista semi-permanent hair dye in the colour peach. And as this product only works on blonde or pre-lightened hair, I used it on my ends only.. as I’ve been getting balayage for the past 3 years or so.
If you want to know my full views on the product and a tutorial on how to use it, please check out my video above. If you’re here for a quick visit you can check out my opinions below!
L’Oreal Colorista Peach Q&A
It’s easy to use and not too messy to apply. They supply you with gloves and the product is already mixed in the tube.
How many applications do you get from one tube?
I only used about half the tube for my balayage, but if you were using it on all your hair I would say one application per tube.
How long does it last?
It says it lasts about 3-4 shampoos, but I was lucky to get two washes. I will say though, that my hair hasn’t been dyed in awhile so if it was freshly washed bleached hair it would probably last longer.
How much does it cost and where can I get it?
I got mine in Boots and it cost €8.99, but you can get it in a few chemists and in Penneys.
Is it worth the money?
…Sort of. I mean, it does what it says on the package and the colour is really nice. I wish it lasted longer, so I probably won’t buy it again. But if you’re looking for a different look for a festival or holiday I would definitely recommend it!
