Hair Color | Kiss Express Color in Crimson…

I have been contemplating if to dye my hair again or just let the last dye I used, run its course and my hair return to its natural boring color of dark brown. I love trying different things and wanted to have a brighter color in my hair. I stumbled on Kiss Express Color  in Crimson which is a semi permanent hair dye and seemed to be brighter than Truly Red which I had before based on their sample.

I applied the dye with gloves from my scalp to the ends. Covered my hair with a plastic cap and sat under my heat cap for 25mins as stated on the instructions.  Rinsed with warm water and applied Aussie Moist conditioner to add some softness as well as to remove the excess dye in my hair.

Based on their website Kiss Express Color is Relaxer safe, Generally last 6-12 shampoos, Excellent Gray Covers, Heat-Resistant Protein, pH Balanced, Contains a variety of Natural Fruit and Herb Extract.
Depending on the lighting you can see the color in my hair which is more of a maroon color than red. I need to bleach my hair or a couple of strands to receive the actual color I desire but that will never happen.  Although my knowledge on hair care has grown, I’m not willing to put my hair through that torture.  In the past, I have bleached some of my hair and every piece broke off in a matter of weeks due to bad care.

Dyeing our hair is fun and exciting but its more maintenance and I’ll discuss that soon.

What shade would you dye your hair?

  5. So gorgeous! It looks beautiful on you. Great color and shine. Please let us know how you maintain the color. For example in your wash day would you use a color protection shampoo/conditioner to maintain it?

    I can see you now with this color bouncing off your gorgeous flexi rods curls. I am now tempted to color mine. I'll try to see if they have this brand in my Sallys beauty supply store. Thanks.

  7. This is such a beautiful color! Your hair looks great, Tomi. My lifelong dream is to become a redhead lol. If I were to dye it any color, it would be red or auburn.

  8. I just discovered you this evening and am SO excited to finally get someone also from Alberta with my hair :) How often do you dye and henna your hair? Sorry if you discussed this in a previous post perhaps.
