Going Rose Gold With Colour Freedom

I want to start this post by confirming that this isn’t sponsored. I did work with Colour Freedom on my getting grey hair post at the end of 2016, and it remains my most viewed post, so when I decided I wanted a change it made sense to write about this process too. I’ve been eyeing up the Rose Gold hair of dreams on Pinterest for a while and when I saw my favourite brand had released a permanent colour (Colour Freedom Rose Gold, that is) I knew I had to try it.

Read on to find out how I got my hair from my beloved grey to the beautiful pink rose gold shade I’m now sporting.

I knew I needed to remove all of the grey so that I could see what I was dealing with underneath. I swear by Colourless which you thoroughly cover your hair with, then wrap your head in clingfilm and leave it for 45 minutes. The colour washes straight out, though if you’ve got a really dark colour in you might want to do this twice. It’s a pretty magical product though.

Once I had the lengths of my hair to the very pale blonde they were under the grey, it was time to tackle my roots. I actually bleached them three times (as you can see from the photo they were pretty dark!) leaving a week in between each go and using a toner three days after. I love the Jerome Russell silver toner (and just look how light it got my hair!) but I’d suggest if you’re trying to get to as white blonde as possible, as I was, you might be better with their platinum toner instead.

Once my hair was light enough, and I’d given it a few days to rest, I used the Colour Freedom Rose Gold colour over my whole head. I left this on for an hour as I find the 45 minutes recommended time isn’t quite enough, and I did need to do a second application a couple of days later as the first go with any dye ends up patchy for me-I’m not sure why. I absolutely LOVE the result, though. It’s a gorgeous, pale pink, not a million miles from blonde, and just what I was after.

    Ahh, it looks fantastic. I haven’t coloured my hair in YEARS…. I really want to soon though, but I can’t decide on a colour.

    I’ve never heard of anyone dying their hair rose gold before. It looks great on you though!

    I have missed the whole rose gold phenomenon, but it’s really lovely, and suits you so well! I would love to be braver with my hair colouring, but usually stick to the same dark brown… 😀 Maybe one day! 🙂

    It’s really pretty – but goodness what a lengthy process! I find colouring my hair once every few weeks with a darker shade a massive pain!

    This looks great, I am far too nervous to dabble with colour but you look fab. Really suits you.

    I would love to have a colour change, but just like to play it a bit safe. Rose gold is such a great colour x

    Oh I love this! I wouldn’t dare try a colour quite so bold but you look amazing!

    I have always played it safe with my hair colour and stuck to my natural dark brown. I wish I was brave enough to try something like this x
