Stargazer Hair Dye
Advantages: Cheap, looks good in the packet
Disadvantages: It doesn twork
I have been dying my hair for years and have been everything from blonde to red, brown, pink, purple and everything inbetween, in fact the only colour I haven't been is black! My natural hair colour is brown with a hint of grey, I am getting married next September so am waiting for the plum colour in my hair to grow out as I don't know what I intend to do with my hair yet.
Over the years I have used wash in wash out colours, permanent and semi colours, powders, creams, tubes, bottles and cartons and not all hair dyes work as well as others. A friend of mine had been raving about Stargazer products; I had tried a few but hadn't gone near their hair dye. After being handed a packet of Plume hair dye (Deep purple) I couldn't get to the bathroom quick enough.
The packet has a ladies face on whose hair id the colour of the hair dye, it gives instructions on the packet and after familiarising myself with said instructions we were ready to go. We had decided that I should go purple all over!! (Why not) and after freaking out for a while, gave in and allowed my 'friend' to apply the dye to my hair. My hair was a medium brown shade before hand and I was very excited to see what shade it would now go. I left (as instructed) the dye on my hair for 20 minutes, it didn't smell unpleasant and it defiantly wasn't as overpowering as some dyes can be. After 20 minutes I washed my hair out and was not overly impressed with the results. I had purple streaks in my hair which was not the worst outcome ever; but the colour had not taken on most of my hair, which was a shame. The parts that had taken were a lovely colour; it was semi-permanent which I was rather glad about. In fact had I not pointed out the different streaks to people, it wasn't really that noticeable. After two and a half weeks, the colour had pretty much gone completely. It was a shame because had it worked all over my hair, it would have been the most awesome hair colour ever.
I won't be buying the colour again, I don't know when I will dye my hair again but when I do I won't be using this. At £4 it isn't the most expensive dye on the market but you still expect it to work. Disappointing.
Summary: Not good
