Alright guys, I had to dye my hair black to match my new set of VPFashion extensions that I had received (There will be a separate blog post up for that!) and I went to Walmart and I couldn't find just a #1B so I settled for this #1BB. I was pretty sick at the time and couldn't really focus so I grabbed this one not even really looking at the box but it ended up turning out alright!
The dye I grabbed was Vidal Sassoon's Ultra Vibrant Colour #1BB London Luxe in Midnight Muse Blue, SAY WHAT?! This was clearly not what I wanted to grab at all, I did NOT want blue hair, I wanted black! But if you keep on scrolling you'll see it all turned out okay which is not so cool for the dye but pretty cool for me, luckily.
Above and below you can see what my hair looked like before applying the dye. The right side of my hair was pretty black as I had dyed it black before and it stuck pretty well but it was already dark. The left side of my hair though had previously been blonde and I did dye it black as well but it didn't stick very well because I didn't add a filler so I just wanted to show you that I had slight blonde streaks and brown on that side.
After the dye job you can see that it is in fact NOT blue, so thankfully, and it covered my blonde/brown and my lighter black side and my whole head is finally one colour now! So the #1BB from VS isn't actually blue which is pretty bad branding for them considering people would be buying it, it is just plain #1B so if you're trying to match your extensions it is a perfect match for that!
Here is a photo in natural lighting too, instead of my yellowish bathroom lightning so you can see that it is actually just #1B black with no blue undertones, even on my blonde pieces.
Overall I think the dye is not bad! It didn't feel conditioning or anything but it also didn't feel like it damaged my hair so that's nice. It does come with a conditioner but I don't find that it's anything special but I'll still be using it weekly like it suggests until it runs out because it's supposed to help keep your colour. Like I mentioned there will be a blog about my VPFashion extensions where you'll be able to see that they match perfectly!
