I recently received products from eSalon to try for free through BzzAgent. They included a two step process permanent dye. If you would like to try it out make sure to click on my link to receive your first month 50% off. http://u.bzz.com/sakzi. I had a few issues as I placed my order, one being an item on backorder. They quickly resolved the situation by giving me a credit and including an extra bonus item. They get 5 stars on customer service.
I have been dyeing my hair for quite a while due to my excessive grey hair. I go to the salon two times a year and my husband helps apply my hair color in between. When I signed up with eSalon they had an extensive survey to identify the best color for me. They asked questions about current color, natural color, and color wanted. When I received my kit it had a color number to identify my individualized color.
The shipment was received with all the items needed to color my hair. The box included the two step dye, for roots and ends. They also included a perfect match kit with packets of shampoo, conditioner, stain guard, stain remover, and two sets of gloves.
I also order a dyeing kit that included a timer, bowl, brush, and clips. I’m so glad, it made sectioning so much easier.
I had been using the foam hair color for a while and Mike found this dye a little more stressful. We loved the stain guard which decreased the worry about any embarrassing color dripping on my forehead. He applied the first color to the roots section by section and then we set the timer. Then Mike applied the section color to the ends and we set the timer again. I loved the detailed instructions on how to ensure the best application and color preservation. Here is a picture before I used eSalon.
I will be ordering my next color in November and I will be calling the colorist to get some advice. My grey is really reluctant and I find with all products at home and in the salon the grey eventually comes through. This color did a great job and I know I loved the red tones. I felt the dual color helped to ensure that the color looked more natural. Below is a picture of my color after, sorry for the bit of frizz this was taken before I used my straightener.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, the opinions included in this post are 100% my own.
