a cure for blah hair color w/o dye

my mom, me & my daughter were (cursed)blessed with dark blond hair…or as my mom calls it, ‘dirty dishwater hair color’ more commonly known as ash blond. it has a blue shade to it. Β i tend to color outside the lines…i bought my daughter ‘John Frieda shampoo & conditioner & colour gloss for Brilliant Redheads’DSC_9475…it is designed to enhance red hair. i’m an artist & i know if you put a tint into anything, your hair will pick up the tints…this is Sophie with the brilliant reds shampooed & conditioned in her ash blond hair. no dyes, just color added to the shampoo. perfect for all of us with blah hair color.

i gave my girl a tattoo πŸ™‚

  1. I didn’t realize tinted shampoo and conditioner existed. I bought some henna for my dishwater blonde hair but I’m trying to scrape up enough courage to use it. I’ve never dyed my hair before. The tint looks good on your daughter though.


    1. Oh, be brave! you are NOT dying your hair if you use the shampoo…the color gradually becomes true over time & if you hate it, just use a strong shampoo to wash it away. You’ll love it! ~amy


  2. Beautiful image of your daughter. My wife has “ash blonde” hair and I have always found those with this color hair more attractive than those with blonde hair πŸ™‚


    1. Thank you about the compliment about the photograph of my daughter. She was always saying she HATED her hair…it is curly. so i gave her the shampoo to change something about her hair & she stopped complaining…as much. I am glad you think your wife is beautiful as she is. i did not intend to imply that ash hair must be changed, only that it could be. usually women with blond hair as a kid…the blond becomes darker as we age & it is difficult to see ourselves differently as we thought of ourselves…peace. ~amy

    Lovely colours, really brighten up your daughter’s hair and enhance her eyes. She is beautiful.


    1. The artist in me…i know the color wheel & color correction for my photography…the rules are pretty much the same. The red tint to her hair brings out her green eyes. Thanks you much! ~amy

  4. brilliant idea……….great pic too. We tend to call it mouse brown and I have it too


    1. i have heard my hair called mouse brown too. dirty dishwasher hair is what stuck. It bothered me that Sophie had my color. Now she looks so much warmer. its just pigment added to shampoo. art! ~amy

    What is wrong with “ash blonde”? So I used to have blah blah hair? πŸ™‚
    Anyway, result is fine. Your daughter will break hearts…


    1. ash blond has blue in it. it is cold. with her naturally curly hair–that she hates, i told her we could change it in a different way & you know what?! She loves her hair now. i didn’t meant to hurt your delicate feelings :). i never insulted her hair. she did, i was sick of hearing how much she hated her curls. way better to make her shut up & feel beautiful, yes? i thought 2 year olds were hard. not even close to 14 year olds. and i loved your blah, blah hair, did it fall out or change color? ~amy

    Never heard of doing that, and she looks so beautiful! β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ»


    1. the rules of color, whether with pigments or photography are the same with everything. So when i saw it, i knew the red would warm her dark blond hair. BOOM. and it is just shampoo & conditioner. Fun. Thank you for complimenting her beautiful self…she is so mad at me right now…anyway, when she chills out, i will let her know of your compliment. ~amy
