Omg, omg, omg, Valentine’s Day is almost here! What’s that mean to me? It’s an excuse to EAT! Yep, I use this supposed-to-be-romantic holiday as an excuse to stuff myself with unhealthy food for dinner…lol!
Holidays are also the perfect time to freshen up my hair color. I often get so busy that I forget, and upcoming holidays serve as fantastic reminders. If you haven’t tried my fave home hair color brand, Madison Reed, now’s the time to give it a shot. The cool thing is, they have professional stylists available to help you, and their Color Advisor is great for selecting the perfect color that will work with what you already have.
If you read my review “Is Madison Reed Hair Color Worth the Hype?” (found here), you know how committed this company is to quality- there’s no ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, or gluten. This means no stinky gross chemical smell! Not only did they leave out the bad stuff, but they added in good stuff, such as argan oil, keratin, and ginseng extract to help pamper and protect your hair.

I was really excited when I found out this was the closest formula I was going to get to what my fave salon uses. When you order from Madison Reed, you not only get the highest quality product sourced from responsible manufacturers in Italy (the mecca of the hair color world), they also send everything you need in the kit, even gloves!
Madison Reed has both semi-permanent and permanent colors. I have very little gray, so I usually use the semi-permanent Color Reviving Gloss in Espresso. When I use this, it almost looks as if I have highlights in my hair, it’s so multidimensional. It fades gradually, but never looks dull, so I get vibrant hair that changes slightly. With the slight changes as it wears, and being able to switch colors often, color boredom is eliminated…lol!
Jerry has quite a bit of grey (actually, a LOT), so he prefers the permanent Radiant Color Kit . Again, no strong chemical smells like the stuff you get from the store. When we touch his roots up, we use heat to help it penetrate deeper, which helps it grey get covered more easily. We’ve never tried it without heat, it’s just habit from other brands, but I’ve heard the brand covers well even without it.
