For 24 years I was a hair dye virgin. I refused to use any kind of colour or bleach on my hair, the closest I had ever come to 'colouring' my hair was using Sun-In once (which is shit, fyi). But I've been talking about doing it for years, and my hairdresser Daniel (who I've been friends with since we were 13) has also been tryna persuade me to do it for years. So back on NYE, I did it. My hair is now highlighted with colour, bleach and toner. And since then I've re-done it every 6-8 weeks (including an amazing colour session at Nicky Clarke!), which has meant I've been testing out a lot of products to keep it shiny and healthy, and now feel comfortable recommending my favourites.
