Hair update...

I think I'm going to dye my hair today. I mentioned a while ago that I was trying to decide out of lighter foils or going dark. I had black hair for a couple of years and loved it, but it was such a hassle to grow out. However I really prefer having darker hair, and I think going lighter would really wash me out.

Last night I bought a couple of packets of Schwarzkopf Live Colour in Chocolate:

This is the colour I was going for when I kept colouring my hair black, but given this is an 8 wash one I should be fairly safe. Fingers crossed... If I like it, I can go to the hairdresser and get a nice semi put through.

I have bought the Elvive shampoo and conditioner to try, as I heard somewhere that it's really good:

Fingers crossed. My hairdresser uses Redken on my hair, however at $26 a bottle it just gets too expensive. I compromise by using Outshine 01 when I straighten (keeps away frizz like nothing else, I adore it), and the All Soft Heavy Cream, which is just amazing:

I might post pictures if I can get my face looking respectable after the colour is in and I've straightened. I bought the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Daily Face 30+ sunscreen last night, but I have just a few minutes ago noticed that after I put some moisturiser over the top it's sort of rubbing off my skin - quite gross actually. I don't know if it's the sunscreen, the moisturiser (which I don't use much), or just that the combination of the two don't work. Will have to test it out a bit more...

I really love the Elvive range. It's what I use.
