I never realized just how unhealthy my hair was until after I recently dyed it. I’ve spent years bleaching and processing my hair so it’s natural there would be some wear and tear. I’ve dyed it countless times, countless colors and each time has left something to be desired. I always compare the before and after and up until using Madison-Reed  there was little difference in the healthiness of my hair.

I’m so excited about my new hair color and you can totally see the difference in before (left) and after (right). Isn’t it amazing?! The greatest thing about Madison Reed to me is their color picking process. You can choose to talk with someone or answer an online survey to find your ideal color. My favorite color from my results was Vesuvius Red, which is what I used to dye my hair.


I couldn’t believe the difference, even after seeing it. Never did I imagine my hair would look this healthy without cutting it all off and starting fresh. Now I know it’s not only possible but a reality! I can’t wait to flaunt it and show it off. It looks so natural and the highlights are gorgeous. And just look at that shine! There is no product in my hair in either of the pictures. That shine is after dying, shampooing, and conditioning – nothing else! oH, and there is NO GRAY left!!!!

While I could have easily done the work myself, I thought it would be fun to have a girls day with Tess. After all, she cut my hair so why not let her dye it as well? She did great on both. The Madison Reed hair color kit comes with everything you need. It even comes with handy extras like barrier cream and clean-up cloths.

Once we were ready to get started we sectioned off my hair and pinned it up. Then we took a selfie!

Tess put on the included (high quality) gloves and lined my hairline and forehead with the barrier cream. Between the cream and the cloths there was absolutely no dye left on me!!

Once we were ready she got to work preparing the dye. This was so easy, she just emptied the tube into the bottle and shook for 20 seconds. Voila!

We decided to paint our nails while we waited for the dye to do its work. It was an incredible at home spa day for us! After the dye was ready to come out I hopped in the shower and rinsed. Then I used the shampoo and conditioner that came with the kit. I have to mention that the shampoo and conditioner smell amazing and make sure there is absolutely no trace of dye smell left behind. The dye doesn’t smell bad to start with since it is ammonia free.
