I have been getting quite a number of messages from people asking me what hair dye I use so here are a couple of reviews:

Zorpia Photo Sharing: Free Unlimited Storage & BandwidthClairol Hydrience Hair Color ($7)
I got this in Ruby Twilight, a dark burgundy. The color barely showed up (you can only see it under the sun) and it made my hair a little dry. So despite how pretty it looked on the box, I don’t think I would buy this again.

Zorpia Photo Sharing: Free Unlimited Storage & BandwidthL’oreal Preference Shine Extending Hair Color ($8)
I bought this in Medium Brown hoping to cover up my roots (I have bleached medium brown hair at the time). At first, it made my hair a lot darker, almost like a light black. But after a week, the color somehow faded to a dark brown. Unlike other hair dye, it also made my hair very smooth and soft. I will definitely repurchase this.

Zorpia Photo Sharing: Free Unlimited Storage & BandwidthRevlon Frost & Glow Highlighting Kit ($7)
Do not let the cheesy packaging fool you, this is probably the best highlighting kit out there. I used it on my medium brown hair and I actually got caramel blonde highlights that is oh-so-pretty. The kit also comes with a cap and a plastic needle. They were a little difficult to use but once I got the hang of it, it was not that bad. Plus the color turned out beautifully with no brassiness. Highly recommended!

Zorpia Photo Sharing: Free Unlimited Storage & BandwidthRevlon Colorsilk Hair Color ($3)
I have this in Medium Ash Brown. I have used this twice and the color turned out pretty good both times. My hair experienced some dryness but after I did some deep conditioning, it was not a big problem. Plus at $3 a box, you really cannot beat the price.
