I’ve been needing to do something with my hair….for over a year now.  I’m paranoid about using products on my hair during pregnancy so for the past year and a half I have not colored my hair. Super boring right!?  I originally had an appointment at my local Aveda salon to have my hair colored.  It was going to cost me $110 just for the color.  I hate spending that much on hair color, for it to need another application in 4-6 weeks.  Ugh, I couldn’t do it so I cancelled my appointment.  Still, I wanted to do something to my hair.  So I cut bangs!  It helped but didn’t fill my need for some color!  I started looking at Target in the hair coloring section but just couldn’t bring myself to apply those harsh chemicals to my healthy hair!  (Minus the flat ironing every day, my hair feels and looks healthy.  I didn’t want to ruin that with cheap hair color).  Then I heard about Madison Reed…


“Our long-lasting hair color is packed with rich nutrients like keratin, argan oil and ginseng root extract. Your hair will feel stronger, shinier and better than before you colored.
Our formula is free of ammonia and resorcinol, taking the harsh out of hair color. And it smells nice too!
Handcrafted in Italy, our special multi-tone formula comes in 27 natural and dynamic shades for sophisticated salon-quality color with unparalleled depth and shine.
Whether you’re refreshing your roots or trying on a new color, our professional-grade formula provides complete coverage, especially for those tough grays”

So I decided I’d give it a try.  I started online (which you can do HERE).  They walk you though some questions to help you choose a color that is good for your skin tone and current color on your hair.  I chose Palermo Black (3NVV).  It arrived within a few days and this morning I applied the color.  It took about an hour but it had a great guide and everything you need.  See..here’s the  inside of the box: (hair color, 2 paris of gloves, cream to apply to your forehead to avoid stains, a clean up towel for mistakes, shampoo, conditioner and a cap)  Oh, and did I mention everything in the box is 100% Recyclable? Talk about eco friendly hair coloring!  I love that.


Here’s the big reveal….My before and after pictures:


AND AFTER…Drumrolllllllllll…..



I love the results! My hair feels super healthy, the color is even and vibrant and it was super easy to do.  I’m sold, it really is salon quality hair color at home.  When I was applying it, my bathroom didn’t smell at all like I was coloring my hair.  It actually smelled really good! And if I can do it, anyone can.
