In the kit, they included gloves as well. So it’s just about applying the pre-color serum…

Since this is a creme type dye, you can shake it. There are newer foam type formulas that prohibit shaking to prevent building up too much pressure in the bottle.

Thanks to mom who massaged in the dye and helped to get things to coat evenly, I didn’t have to worry.

|Before and After using L’Oréal Excellence Fashion 7.1 Beige Light Brown|
In nighttime lighting, this is how it looks like. I’m honestly really happy with how it looks on the bleached part! It looks so sophisticated and elegant. I wish I had known about this sooner because I had such a hard time trying to go to all sorts of people to make my bleached hair ash only for it to end up looking like a chocolatey brass. I’m happier about the fact that since this is a boxed dye, the results are replicable and predictable. Ash is so tricky that I really appreciate that there is something in the market that got it right, is easily accessible, and affordable.

The other new product they sent in with their Excellence Ultra Lights was their Ever Sulfate free haircare series. I am sooooo in love with these!!!! Thus far, I have noticeably been able to keep dye jobs looking fresh for weeks, and my bleached part not washing out of color too soon, because of this line. The scene is to die for! I am also suuuuper stoked that unlike most sulfate free formulas, this has a very very good lather. If someone literally handed this out of nowhere without any labels, you’d never know it was sulfate free because of the super rich and foamy lather.
I do have sulfate free shampoos of other brands, and what happens is that the product is not foamy, leading me to use up a bottle too quickly. To add, when it’s sulfate free, it sorta is too frictional on the hair. There’s no glide to it that my hair ends up getting tangled, subsequently snapped and damaged, and of course, the result is it’s rough and dry. I may have kept the color frozen in time, but my hair’s texture really just didn’t work well with other sulfate free formulas.
I guess partly, is’s because other sulfate free lines mainly just tackle color retention. They do not tackle repairing the hair, nor do they come with the fundamental understanding that if you are looking to pay so much money for sulfate free haircare, it means you have done damaging chemical processes that would warrant the need for such specialty haircare.
I have been using this the most thus far out of the Ever series, and I am so glad I hoarded. I usually need to desperately have my hair trimmed because of all the split ends that formed every 2 months or so, but with several months of using this, the need has lessened. Bleached hair really just deteriorates and deteriorates and in the end will need to be cut off, but thankfully, this shampoo has helped to curb the damage and slow down the degeneration somehow.
