Adore Copper Brown Hair Dye

[Background: In July 2016 I bleached half of my hair and coloured it with varying shades of vibrant turquoise and purple (originally used LaRiche Directions & Adore) and every time I washed it, my hair became bluer! Eventually it settled on a lovely aquamarine-bluey-green, but sure enough my work found a problem with "extreme /unnatural hair colours"... something about "uniform policy"... so I figured it was time to get back to something relatively "natural" - so what if it wasn't mine!]
A haircut in Feburary 2017 left me with less bleached colour to cover so figured I'd go for a dip-dye/ombre look. I've always loved the colour of a natural redhead, and I liked the warm natural shades of the Adore range, but I couldn't find any accurate visual results online. Also I worried that any dye I used might go neon over what remained of the bleach; in the end I just had to take a wild guess on the dyes and try it out.
I chose Adore French Cognac & Copper Brown and evenly mixed them together, applying it to my all ready bleached tips, as well as some unbleached hair as well. The dye was quite runny which made it easier to apply. Worth saying that Adore dyes have a somewhat pleasant smell compared to some of the stenches you can occasionally find with brands you can buy on the high street!
Result? On the tips, a million times yes! However on the unbleached hair, the dye didn't cling at all which was a shame. Nevertheless I am thrilled with the tips, and I love how the colour slightly varies in different lights, just like my friend's natural red hair - definitely doing something right with this mix!
Only giving 4 stars due to the non-existent effect on unbleached hair. Overall, very happy to be an honorary member of #TeamRedhead!
