Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL Colour Intense Permanent Coloration 00B Max Blonde
This product was fantastic!
I bought this product as it was on offer, and I really wanted to bleach my hair. The instructions were clear, it was easy to mix, and fairly easy to apply(I had to get my friend to do the back).
I originally have light brown hair, but have dyed it many different colours, the most recent a blondy colour. I had dark roots, but the rest was a honey blonde colour, which made me a bit skeptical that the product would turn my hair a light blonde. But it did!
I would really reccomend 2 boxes, if you have thick or long hair, as there just isn't enough for it all to be covered(I missed the back, and had to buy more). The product didn't turn my hair the yellowy/orangey colour some people seem to get when bleaching their hair, but I would deffinately leave it on for at least 40 minutes.
Overall it was good value for money, and turned my hair the colour on the packet. But I would reccomend using a toner/toning shampoo, just incase you get the orangey colour. Also use a lot of conditioner, and maybe a hair mask, as your hair may start to feel a bit straw-like. But this is a product I will deffinately be using again.

I have naturally light/medium brown hair and I wanted to dip dye it a lighter blonde (I previously used about 5 other box dyes e.g nice and easy but it just went like a caramel colour) and this live colour worked perfectly and gave me exactly the results on the box.
Although it does have a downfall, when I used it, I didn't realize how strong the bleach actually is. So during the application, I started to well up because of the overpowering smell etc. About 10 minutes in, tears were balling from my eyes and they were all red and puffy from where I'd been crying so much. (it wasn't emotional, it was merely from the peroxide) So I would definitely reccommend standing by a window or a fan because it was the worst experience ever doing it in a bathroom with no window.
Apart from that, it was brilliant, left my hair in a great condition still and did exactly what it said on the box!

LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
I naturally have dark brown almost black hair, and the only dye that really does anything for my stubborn Asian hair is Clairol Perfect 10, but sadly they've discontinued it so I've been looking for a new dye to lighten my hair. I was skeptical about this dye after doing some research on it but since it was on offer I thought I'd bite the bullet and just do it and omg I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it! If you follow the instructions you can't go wrong with this dye, it lifted my hair to a medium warm blonde and the condition of my hair has never been softer. If you're hair is longer than shoulder length or is thick and you're wanting to dye your whole head I'd reccomend 3-4 boxes.. I bought 1 box and there was only enough for me to do an ombre on my boob length thin hair. Will defo by this dye again!
