How to get grey/silver hair

Hey dolls!
Who doesn't love to change their hair colour better stop reading this now, because this post is all about my journey to getting grey hair. As most of you probably already know, grey hair is one of the biggest trends at the moment since Kylie Jenner introduced her grey ombre to us. I don't particularly follow her trend but when I saw other girls post pictures of their grey/silver hair I started to miss mine...
The first time I had silver hair was two years ago in the summer holidays and I absolutely loved it but it was so hard to maintain the colour that I had dyed it back to blonde not long after. This time I went a bit darker and chose the shade 'pigeon's dust' from my local Polish shop and absolutely love the results.
So this is the hair dye I bought. It includes the colour cream and the oxidizer at 9% and of course a pair of gloves.I have also used a mixing bowl and brush for easier application. What I would recommend is to mix half of the oxidiser with a bit of water so the colour comes out darker rather than lighter as the higher percentage of the oxidiser the lighter the hair will come out. It'll loo best mixed with 6% and a bit of silver shampoo in the mixture. Firstly, I applied the dye to my roots (btw it has a leaflet inside the box and it has the instructions in English) and kept it on for about 15 minutes and then applied the rest of the product on the length of my hair and kept it on for yet another 15-20 minutes. Because I added a hint of silver shampoo it gave the dye a purpley effect so now my hair looks grey with a hint of purple which makes it that slightly bit more unique in my opinion.

If you have any further questions about how I got my hair to be this gorgeous colour then don't hesitate and leave a comment below or email me at :)

Lots of love,
