£1.20 To Dye My Hair.....?

A slight change of post that I was going to post about this evening but I had to show you my bargain find.....

I always dye my hair at home, I used to love going to the hairdressers but I am trying to cut down on costs and with my hair being super thick and long the hairdressers usually see me a mile off and the bill is ridiculous!

Usually my choice of at home hair dye is Nice'n'Easy, this afternoon I looked in the mirror to see this horrible sight.....

Hideous, I know. I have had a bad time recently and my appearance has been the last of my worries, but I need to pick myself up and sort myself out, starting with these god awful roots. Off I went to Boots this afternoon and picked up 2 boxes of Nice'n'Easy (on offer 2 for £10 - I need to use 2 boxes because of the length of my hair) I then went for a browse around Boots and spotted these.....

Boots own hair dye in lightest blonde for a bargainous £1.20 per box!! I just had to test this out for the sake of my blog. £2.40 to do my hair instead of £10, now that's super saving! Inside the box contains the usual 3 elements.....

The packaging is a little dull, but it all goes in the bin anyway so that doesn't bother me at all. The application I noticed a few pros and cons.....


-The smell of this dye is lovely, usually when I dye my hair my eyes are streaming and I can't breathe!
-The gloves that come in the pack are good quality ones, not the ones that feel like super thin sandwich bags.
-I usually have to sit with a fork scratching my head when the dye is on but this one was scratch free!


-The bottle that you squeeze the dye from is quite thick so it's difficult the squeeze.
-The dye is quite thin so it's quite a messy experience.
-The conditioner that comes with the kit is extremely thin and well, useless, I had to recondition my hair once I had washed out Boots' attempt of a conditioner.

So, here is the finished result (unstyled so please excuse the flyaways).....



Now for £2.40 I am quite impressed, I looked on the Boots website to see how much it usually sells for £3.36 which I think is a good price but I don't think I would exchange my Nice'n'Easy as my hair feels quite dried out.

On the other hand I think if I saw it in the clearance secton again and I was trying to save some pennies I would snap it up!

Have you tried this? What hair dye do you use if any?
