Quarantine Hair Color

I had been using my tried and true L’Oreal Root Cover Up but my roots grew out to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. So, I caved and touched up my roots at home 💁🏻‍♀️ But not before doing lots of research on which hair color would be best for my hair type. My hair type being 50% (resistant) gray, fine, and my color of choice being red which is notorious for not having the staying power of other hues. I’d heard really good things about Madison Reed hair color so I went to their site, took their color quiz, and found my perfect match…. If only dating were this easy 😂

I’ve colored my hair at home in the past, but never done a root touch up, so I enlisted the help of my sis and made a girls night out of it. The kit comes with everything you need, including barrier cream and cleansing wipes. One thing I noticed immediately is there is no harsh smell! Plus, it’s made with keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root extract and free of ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, & gluten.

The process was quick & easy with just a 35 minute processing time. I have some pretty resistant grays and this stuff covered them completely! The result was a beautiful multi-tone, medium golden red – the color shown on the box is exactly what I got and it left my hair so soft! With results that rival salon color and at a fraction of the price, I think this may have been a blessing in disguise. Even though salons have opened back up, I think I’m going to keep the girls night out color dates with my sis (she’s now a convert, as well) and save the salon visits for cut & style only.

You can purchase your own directly from the Madison Reed website or at Ulta Beauty. Make sure to visit https://www.madison-reed.com/ to take their quiz to get your perfect match before purchasing!
