Winter time can leave me feeling dull some days. Maybe it is the lack of sunshine, maybe it is the cold. Either way, when I am not feeling exactly like myself, I like to get out of my funk and back to normal by doing something nice for myself. 

I would love to indulge and spend an afternoon at a salon having my hair dyed and styled to its prettiest but in reality, I prefer to save some money and turn to at-home hair colour kits. I've been doing them on and off for years, with practice it doesn't take much time at all. Plus, doing it at home means I don't need a babysitter.

The results of some at-home dye kits haven't always been what I've wanted each time. I've made my fair share of mistakes, choosing the wrong colour or brand (I once accidentally turned my hair pumpkin orange) but with my recent adventures in hair dye, I can't complain! 

I decided before the holidays that I needed to change my look. I went from blond to a darker colour with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series in medium chocolate brown.

My biggest issue with most hair dyes I have tried is the colour not lasting. After a few washes it turns brassy and dull. The Vidal Sassoon Pro Series at home dye gave me excellent all-over colour that after a few weeks worth of washes (pictured below), has not faded or dulled to that yucky brassy colour.

I will definitely be sticking to Vidal Sassoon for my next at-home hair pampering. I can't wait to try out the new Vidal Sassoon Salonist colour.

Vidal Sassoon Salonist brings you the brilliance of salon colour by treating roots and tips separately with the simplicity of a two-step at-home dye kit. Unlike your usual at-home kit, Salonist is designed for the perfect consistency to use a bowl and brush - just like at the salon. It allows us to channel our inner hairdresser and get precise application at the roots at the right balance of depth and tone. 

Vidal Sassoon Salonist is available in 24 different shades and can be found at mass retailers everywhere. As tempting as it would be to change up my colour again, it's too soon but I am going to need to touch it up in a few more weeks so make sure to look for an update to come!
