I’m so excited to share with you my new favorite way to color my hair professionally- at home! Madison Reed offers nutrient-rich at-home hair color and hair care products that are free of gluten and harsh chemicals like ammonia, resorcinol, added paraben and PPD. As a paranoid pregnant person, I love that Madison Reed offers salon hair color and hair care you can do at home that is better for you. Their long-lasting formulas are packed with rich nutrients like keratin, argan oil and ginseng root extract for stronger, shinier and healthier hair. No longer sacrifice your health for beautiful hair. Smaller color molecules, called micropigments, create a gentler coloring process that doesn’t require ammonia to aggressively open the hair cuticle to deposit the color the way other dyes do. Our formula has no pungent smell, leaves hair stronger and allows it to hold color longer.
I knew I was in for a better experience right away once I visited the Madison Reed website and found that I could consult on which hair color to order three different ways: the online Color Adviser, Color Translator or mobile app. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to hair, especially picking the correct hair dye color, so I found this extremely beneficial. This process takes into account current hair color, texture, length, thickness, etc to ensure your package arrives perfectly customized for your mane. I knew I wanted to take my hair a little bit darker, as I have a baby on the way and want something easier to maintain. Plus, I usually like to go a little darker in the winter time. Using the color adviser tool, it clearly showed me which shades would work best with my current hair.
I ordered my color kit on a Wednesday and received it by Friday, I was very impressed with how quickly it arrived. I’m not a very patient person, obvi. When I opened my kit, I was instantly impressed with how, beautiful it was. That probably sounds weird to call a hair dye kit beautiful, but it was.
Even my husband (who is my at-home hair color assistant) was impressed with how much the kit includes! I loved the thought put into it, especially that it includes barrier cream, two sets of gloves and a cap! Things I always forget about until I’m mid color and then begin to panic. The quality of the products is evident in the way it smelled upon beginning my color. You know what I’m talking about, that rich spa/salon smell? Not often dying your hair smells good.
