Jerome Russell BBlonde Hair Lightener

 *I'm apologising in advance... my camera has died so using my old camera which is just not the same quality, hope the pictures aren't too bad!*

It's scary stuff taking the plunge an going from brunette to blonde. Especially when you are planning to do it at home. By yourself. (Note: Unless you are crazy like me and won't be too distraught if the outcome is horribly wrong, then go and get professional advice before bleaching or colouring your hair. Maybe even let the lovely hairdresser do it for you :) I take no responsibility for how your own hair turns out if you try this!)

I've bleached my hair in the past, expecting it to go a lovely dirty honey blonde hue and slowly realising that is not how it works. The result was a kinda funky ginger/orange shade which I would have liked had it not been so unbelievably streaky and patchy (worst box dye ever!). Back to brunette I went... After months of watching others do it, I decided to dip dye my hair with the Jerome Russell B Blonde hair lightener



Inside the packet is a scary looking peroxide mixing kit which turns bright blue as soon as powder hits the liquid part. This is genuinely scary but all blonde dyes or toners work in this way so there is nothing to fear! The kit also includes gloves, a processing cap, a tray to mix and a tinting brush which is fantastic because I find some kits like this don't include everything you need to dye your hair properly. I applied it to the ends of my hair with the tint brush which was relatively easy however the tint brush is pretty small so may make it a bit more difficult for full head application.



Here is a picture of my hair before the process:

Here is after:


I'm actually really impressed with this! Most box bleaches for 'dark hair' come out orange but this one has gone quite a nice shade of blonde. My hair is slightly brassy however this is easily fixed by a purple shampoo or a toner and, to be honest, the lightness of the colour is impressive considering how dark my hair was to start off with.

I'd definitely get the B Blonde hair lightener it again. It was easy to use, did relatively little damage to my hair and worked a treat! It's available in Boots and Superdrug and retails for around £4.99.

  2. I used to always use the Bblonde by Jerome Russell for my hair (All over), but it did give me the brassy hair colour, and toner didn't help me too much. :(

    Saying that, with the ombré look the colour works really well next to your brunette. :)

    1. Yeah I think it is ideal for dip dye and ombre because you can dye over it! It was great for blending as well but I had to use a purple shampoo for over two weeks straight to take out all the brassiness.
