My new hair color + a couple photos of Rocky :)

Natalie Saturday, October 1, 2011
I ended up dying my hair last night with the hair dye I posted about yesterday. It was the Clairol Nice n' Easy Colorblend Foam in the shade #4 Dark Brown. Prior to dying my hair, my hair color was an ashy, medium brown with a bunch of golden brown-auburn tones towards the bottom. This dye changed my color to a very dark, rich brown. I really like it, and I'm hoping it's not going to fade considerably once I wash my hair.

As for the dye, I don't think I'd purchase it again. I thought the idea of using a foam was kinda cool, but I actually find it a little inconvenient to use - especially when using a brush to coat the roots. Also another inconvenience, by the looks of the container, it looks like a pump - but it's not. You have to squeeze the bottle for the foam to dispense. Not a big deal, but it's a little awkward. I waited the full 25 minutes, conditioned and rinsed. It left my hair feeling really dry. I could barely get a brush through my hair. On the plus side, it seemed to take well to my gray hairs, and the color looks great. I'll just have to make sure to load up on the deep conditioners. I'm almost done with my Aussie Deep Conditioner. I think I might pick up the "It's a 10" Miracle Leave in Conditioner. I saw it today at ULTA in a pink bottle for Breast Cancer Awareness. (For more info, click here) Anyone recommend it?

I bought this cute little Halloween pajama for Rocky a few days ago at Target. He looks so adorable, but he is always so full of energy, I could not get a decent picture of him. The first picture was the best I could do for now. lol

He looks like Alfalfa.

And, here he is being his typical watch dog self. I was outside on the patio trying to get his attention, but he kept ignoring me. Typical guy.

Talk to you all soon!

  1. You're so beautiful :) Awwe, and your dog is so cute!

    You should look into Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Hair Masque at Ulta. I have been using it on my dry and damaged hair for months now and I love it! Just did a blog post about it not too long ago.

  3. I highly recommend the It's a 10 leave in conditioner. I dye my hair to a very light (white) blonde color so it is pretty dry. This makes my hair so soft and hydrated. I have also heard very good things about using the Macadamia Repair Masque but have never tried it.

  8. Try the Nice N Easy regular version - the foam is messy. However, NNE definitely gives a great colour! Cute Halloween outfit!

  15. I think this dark color is perfect for you!! Back when I used to use box dye before I started mixing my own dye I would buy Nice n Easy natural. It's ammonia free. The stuff still stank like nobody's business but it did less damage to my hair. I have used other Nice n Easy dyes too, they're great as well.

    Your dog just looks too cute in that costume!

  16. The color is great, bummer it makes your hair feel dry! Have you tried Colorsilk? It covers my random gray hairs and leaves my hair really soft with the included conditioner, PLUS it's cheap as chips. BTW your dentist must love you, you have really nice-looking teeth!

  17. You are ROCKING that rose hip lip color! I really like L'oreal Mega Browns hair color. They are available at Sally's.

  22. You're hair looks awesome, perfect for fall!!
    I just bought my millionth bottle of the It's a 10 Leave in Conditioner. It is seriously a magic potion for your hair, and I color mine quite often. It takes my hairs from brittle and frizzy to smooth and silky. If you have the extra dough defs pick up the deep conditioner by It's a 10, it's just as amazing.

  23. I find the foam dye fades terribly...within a couple weeks. I use the same color, and I love how one box is enough to cover my whole head I have waist length hair. The dark color looks amazing on you. I find the best at home hair dye I've used is Gosh brand in dark brown....I'm not sure if you have that in the USA, it may be strictly Canadian/UK. :)

  26. It's a ten is a great leave in conditioner. I work at Ulta and we gave samples of it out in a gift bag about two months back and we've got nothing but good feedback. It's pink too! All of our breast cancer pink stuff came out today and the whole store is so cute. Another hair restoration to try is the Ojon Oil, it's normally showcased at the cash register.

  38. I love your hair, you look like Kim Kardashian!
    I find foam hair dyes uncomfortable to use as well, it's just too messy for me and I find it hard to get the color as close to my roots as I want to.
    Great post!

  39. Love the colour. I am not a dark-haired girl, although my roots tell me something different. Just think I look dull and obscenely weird. But no, agree on the foam dye.. Yuk!

  52. Hi Everyone,

    I know I suddenly disappeared, but it's because there was a sudden tragedy in my family on Oct 2nd. My family and I have been going through a very difficult time. I will return to blogging very, very soon. I'm starting to get back into my regular routine slowly but surely, and I'm anticipating to start posting again within a week or so.

    Thank you for all of your best wishes and concerns.

    I have more details posted on my Twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/nattyngeorge

    Talk to you all soon,
    Natty

  53. I use the It's a 10 conditioning spray, and I have very thick, colored, wavy hair that's a pain to get a brush through if it's wet. This stuff is the ONLY product I'll use as a leave in treatment, it makes me hair soft and shiny and easy (or easier, I should say) to work with wet. I say it's the only product because for some reason with most other leave in treatments I feel like my hair is weighed down considerably. It's a 10 doesn't do that at all, definitely recommend!

  54. oh natty! I feel terrible! I have checked back to your blog literally everyday waiting for you to update! I know, I'm crazy! haha. But your blog was the very first beauty blog that I have ever read and followed. I actually went back to the very first post when I first found your blog. I am so, so, so sorry to hear about your dad. I am so close to my dad and I cant imagine living without him. In fact just the other day I was watching reruns of ny ink a girl was in getting a tattoo in remembrance of her father. It made me cry just imagining living without my father, I told my mom that if my dad died I wouldnt want to live any longer. Reading your comment and twitter updates brought tears to my eyes. I'm sure this has been a rough time, and I know there really isnt much one can say to make a grieving person feel better. If you are ever in need of a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to listen I am here. My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Feel free to email me, whenever you need or want. kmaclellan01@live.ca Stay strong, darling. Dont lose hope. And keep living. ♥

  57. I love the color. But I agree when I used it, i felt like my hair got drier. Which sucked. But I love the its a 10 conditioner and the leave in spray. Both worked wonders on my hair. Love them.
