My take on Color Ops

I have been wanting to go back to a lighter brown hair color for weeks, but I have been dying it a dark almost black color for a while. So in order for this to happen I needed to remove the dark hair color first. Being a stay at home mom I don't really have time or the cash to go to a salon (when really one should lol note to everyone I am not  a hair stylist at all this is just my take on this product).
My starting hair color :
 And the end result :

The process was really simple, mix two solutions together saturate your hair and let set for 20 min. Now i will say the reviews i read on the smell were right its best to do this with the windows open and a fan on. The directions said to rinse for 20 min washing a few times with shampoo. You must get it all rinsed out other wise the color will go dark again. After rinsing I did do a deep conditioning treatment based on what other reviews had said to do too since i wanted to dye it another color soon after removing it. I must say my hair didn't turn out as orange as I thought it would nor as dry either. I would recommend this product to others but with a cautionary tale that results may very. 
Once again I am not a hair stylist and I also purchased all products used with my own money.

Garnier Fructis Bzzagent Campaingn

I was invited to join the bzzagent campaign for Garnier Fructis new shampoo and conditioners the triple conditioner version. I was excited to except because I was on a search for some new shampoos and conditioners. My hair is a mixture of straight wavy some what dry and frizzy too. Based on the survey I filled out they determined I needed the Triple Nutrition formula. I used it the first night after reviving the products and I was insistently  happy with the results. I could comb through my wet hair with out using a leave in conditioner. The smell is light and not harsh at all which is nice. I have been using them for few weeks now, only wash my hair every second or third day, and yes I still have some shedding going on but its about half of what it was. I will be purchasing this shampoo and conditioner once i run out of what I have.
