New Hair Color! Loreal Feria Chocolate Cherry

Hey loves,
First of all, I would like to say Happy new years! Thank you guys so much for your support and love in 2011. I look forward to more videos and more blog posts in 2012 :)

Since it was going to be a new year, I decided it was time for new hair! My roots were growing out, and I was eager to dye my hair. I wanted to go darker this time, my hair has been light brown for a couple years now and I wanted to go back to a darker color, so I won't have to keep dying my hair over and over.
Red is such a hot color for hair lately, and I just love the way it looks, so I decided to go for a deep red color. I also wanted a hint of purple in it, because I like how it looks reddish purplish.
I wasn't sure what color to get from the drugstore, knowing the colors don't always come out like the box.
Finally, I chose Loreal Feria Hair color in Chocolate Cherry 36 / Deep Burgundy Brown.
The color on the box looked gorgeous- just the color I wanted.

After coloring my hair.. here are the results:


My hair was a light brown, and my roots..eek. I like the color, but it was just time for a change :)


A deep red. I love it! It is almost exactly what I wanted. It looks quite dark, almost black with a tint of red in indoor lighting, but when you go outside BAM! Its an intense red color. Pretty crazy.. but I really like it! If you're wanting a subtle red.. you might not want this color, because in the sun, its pretty red. But I love how it looks subtle indoors, and in the sun it looks super vibrant.
I really hope this color does not fade a lot, because I don't want my hair to fade to a light red/ brown, since my purpose of going dark was so that I wont have to re-dye my hair once my roots grow out.
* A tiny review on the hair dye, when dying my hair at home, the ammonia smell is REALLY strong. So make sure your windows are open. Also, I feel like a lot of my hair came out when washing my hair after I dyed it (more hairs than usual), so the chemicals are pretty strong.
I love the color a lot, but I really wish there wasn't as many harmful chemicals in there. Not sure if I would buy it again, but with a color so pretty, I just might.

Hope you guys enjoyed my mini review and what do you think of the new hair?
Thanks for reading, and until next time...
