L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss Glossy Blondes #801 Review | DIY BLONDE ROOTS TOUCH UP!

Hey guys!

My darks roots needed a quick fix and my visit to my hairdresser wasn't anywhere near. My hairdresser lives in Croatia and I've trusted her with my hair for years now! Since getting the right shade of blonde is tricky and requires knowledge, I never felt brave enough to try and touch up my roots at home!

The result was me "crying" at the reflection in my mirror every time my dark roots started showing, or even worse, a couple of grays here and there!

It looked messy and ungroomed and I started to feel quite desperate about it! Blonde hair color requires way more maintenance than darker hair colors, but I was a brunette in the past and I know I feel (and look) much better as a blonde!

So I finally decided to take this step: I bought a box hair dye at my local drugstore and I said to myself (and to my hubby, lol!): "We're doing this!"

Prior to making my purchase, I did a little online research and watched some reviews that helped me figure out which color shade / brand would suit my hair best!

In my video, I'm reviewing the L'Oreal Box Dye Casting Creme Gloss for Glossy Blondes in #801.

This was my first time touching up my roots at home so I'm sharing with you how this little "adventure" went down! I hope you enjoy watching and find it helpful!

Let me know how do you like the end result?

I'm actually quite pleased, it turned out way better than I expected, considering the fact that my roots are naturally dark and that we're talking about box hair dye here and without ammonia! Since I'm pregnant, I paid extra attention to the fact that the hair color I chose doesn't have any harsh chemicals.

The risk of turning out orange was quite high, but I gathered the "courage" or should we say "craziness" and I finally decided to try it out and see how it turns out!

My hubby helped me out by applying the color to the back of my head and the parts that aren't so visible to me. I was literally all over the place, and the total opposite of skilled (that's why I didn't film the actual demo part, so please bare with me! In my video I did talk you through, step by step, what I did, and I tried to explain everything well!). Now that I "broke the ice" I'm sure it's going to be easier next time, so I might even film a whole process of me coloring my hair at home.

Do you colour your hair at home and which color / brand do you use? Let me know!

Let's start the DIY hair color conversation and share some useful tips with each other!

Tutorial: Mermaid Skin Nails

Before, there were unicorns, but since Summer is upon us everything is mermaid related right now. And the flakie trend is sweeping the nail nation. I am surprised too since flakie nail polishes are a part of manicure land for years, but ladies are losing their minds over the loose flakies. I don't get it! I don't like…See More

Nail Care Routine On A Budget

I posted my NAIL CARE ROUTINE a while back. While reviewing that post, I realized that I use a lot of 'high end' nail care products. I mean they were not the most expensive items ever, but still... So I took a walk in my local drugstores and picked up some nail and hand care products that are quite cheap and effective. After some testing, I chose to share them all with you.Firstly, there are the S-he…See More

MOTD: Sparkle Red

Hi Girls!Today's makeup is a party look. Enhanced eyes, strong contours and dark lipstick are typical evening looks.I used matte eyeshadows, but I am grateful for the beautiful glitter pigment.This is better seen in pictures of the whole face than on the closeup of the eyes.The dark lower lashline adds a bit of drama.I usually paint my lips with nude lipstick, it is a good combination for dark eyes, but today I decided to choose a brown lipstick that is very fashionable lately.I think that the…See More
