Today I have yet another hair color review for you!
After a month and a half since I colored my roots, the time has come again for that quick touch up. I wanted to try a hair color that I haven't used before, but this time I stayed true to what I was preaching in my last post, and I got the shade very similar to my natural hair color.
Instead of trying to get platinum blonde at home, I went for a very natural shade that actually goes perfectly with my complexion and it looks good on my roots, gradually turning into blonde on the lengths.
The shade I'm talking about is from Garnier Color Naturals and it's 7.1 as the title says, Natural Ash Blonde.
I was very pleased with the results!
The color is easy to apply and you can save it up for another time if you don't use it up entirely.
Once it's open, it'll last you for 18 months, so that's something different from other box hair dyes (which is the option you don't have with other box hair dyes and you have to throw away what you don't use up).
The negative thing about this color is that it washes off way too quickly (even though it's classified as permanent hair color!), in one week it already starts to loose on it's darkness and intensity. After a month, you might be left with brassy looking roots, so make sure to use some sort of violet shampoo at least once a week, to prevent that!
I also didn't like the strong scent of chemicals this box hair dye has! I had the urge to open the window to breathe in some fresh air!
I liked that it has 100% grey coverage and that it's enriched with natural oils such as avocado, olive oil etc. It left my hair really silky and soft!
This color is actually VERY similar, if not the same to Garnier Belle Color that I used before.
These box hair dyes are super convenient and retail about 6/7 € and you can get them at pretty much every drugstore or supermarket.
In my video, I go over more details about this color and I also show you how my roots looked like one month after coloring!

Next month, I'll be reviewing professional box hair dyes made in Italy.
I got the two ash blonde shades which I'll mix and (hopefully) get that perfect professional result!
Let me know have you ever used Garnier box hair dyes and which one is your favorite shade?
xo from Italy,
