Note I'm no hairdresser - just an excessive hair dye buyer
I've been using 10.1 Helsinki light ash blonde for the last few months and have definitely found it to be the best coverage for my ginger hair.
Blonde, Brown, Black, Red you name it, I've tried it. Though I find it easiest to stick with blonde and had read that ash is supposed to help fight against the brassiness you can achieve from some home kits - that battle is a hard one to win especially with naturally ginger hair.
The coverage is even, but I would certainly suggest buying two boxes for hair longer than shoulder length and thick hair (My hair is above shoulder length, but very thick)
I use it more regularly than most, normally once a month. This is mainly because the roots are more noticeable with my hair colour.
I also found that the colour shown on the box is lighter than the colour mine has become (also tried the very light ash blonde) and found the same thing.
The new elixer gives my hair a nice shine.
Overall a good buy
I first bought my first smartphone, the Apple 3G in 2010. It introduced me to being able to regularly check my emails while on the go, the wonders of twitter, time wasting applications and time saving ones.
As far as the actual phone goes it took me a while to work out how to text efficiently as I wasn't used to touch screen and a full keyboard, but when I did it was totally worth it. Calling people, answering calls and adding new contacts didn't take me long to get to grips with. Battery life however isn't great, especially if you are constantly using applications it will drain pretty quickly and in my case needs charging at least once a day.
I prefer the design of the iPhone 3's to the newest iPhone 4's as I find it lighter. The screen is very touch sensitive which is great and had amazing resolution for its time, although, of course it has been outdated by the retina display of the iPhone 4.
I would certainly recommend a screen protector and phone case as one small slip of a hand or misplacement of a the phone into a pocket full of coins, can result in an expensive trip to the phone repairs shop.
In recent months however, I have lost all love for my iPhone. The newest updates are being made unavailable to us "oldies" this is gradually making it near impossible to use the newest apps and even previously downloaded ones. The phone itself has drastically got slower, Apple seem to be forcing us to upgrade and inevitably we will have-to.
RIP iPhone 3
