L'Oreal Casting Sunkiss Jelly

I've been leaving my natural hair colour come through as I'm sick of constantly dying my hair and it getting really dry as a result. I haven't coloured my hair in about 9 months (which is absolutely crazy for me!!!!!) and over the summer I got a bit fed up of it. From constantly washing it and the sun naturally lightening it, my hair turned a not so nice brassy/orangey colour which I absolutely hated. I contemplated getting a few highlights thrown in on the ends of my hair as a very subtle balayage look but then decided not to in case it went more orange.

Randomly online one night, I spotted this L'Oreal Sunkiss Jelly and figured I had to try it out. It's basically an amazing scented shampoo like gel that lightens your hair in a natural looking way. It can be applied to both wet and dry hair and doesn't need to be washed out. It is activated by heat so using a hairdryer is what activates the colour faster. This is a gradual hair lightener so you may not see any difference after the first time you use it.

I used the product all over the ends of my hair completely avoiding my roots. I used this maybe 3 or 4 times between June and August and once again last week and I am finally starting to see a difference. I definitely think the sun on holidays helped lighten it even more. It does specify to use it on natural hair and obviously I didn't. It did take a while to notice the colour change but I can definitely see the change now.

I will definitely be buying another tube to lighten the ends of my hair even more and I definitely recommend using it if you want a naturally highlighted looking colour. It smells amazing and costs about €8 in Sam McCauley's which seems to be the cheapest around. I also got the darkest shade in 01.

Have you tired this? Let me know what you thought of it!
