Hello, my name is Leigh Campbell and I colour my hair at home.
A woman doing her own colour isn't all that groundbreaking, but as a beauty expert, that often surprises people.
I do it DIY-style because it’s fast (my hair grows sooo quickly and so my greys need doing every three weeks), it fits into my schedule whenever I want (I don't have to make an appointment with myself) and the results are really good. Although, the amount of time it saves me really is the biggest winner.
I recently used the Schwarzkopf Colour Specialist range to do just the above. It fully covered my greys and made my hair feel healthy and look lush.
Wanna know how I did it and my tips for getting it right?
Let’s break it down.
1. Select your product
The wall of home hair colours at your local supermarket or pharmacy can be overwhelming. Which to choose? Like I said, I just trialled the Schwarzkopf Colour Specialist range the last time my roots were ‘glowing’.
It’s a permanent home hair colour option. I was first drawn to the grey coverage, because the brand claims to cover all greys and almost all of my hairs are ‘sparkly’ (as I like to call them), so we were off to a great start!
The DIY colour also boasts fancy anti-breakage technology, meaning it’s going to protect the integrity of your strands, so there’s less damage. Being pros in home hair colour, I knew Schwarzkopf would have factored richness of colour and lots of shine (come to mumma!).
Less breakage, amazing colour and no greys? Sold.
