My Hair After Highlighting with L’oreal Feria C100

Dull hair color makes a dull girl, everybody knows that. That’s why, when my colorist couldn’t get me in I decided to take matters into my own hand and you won’t believe what happened.


See, I had very bad cold fusion hair extension experience.  After the extensions were taken out I was mortified to notice that a good portion of my hair had broken off.  Really, the only thing I could do was wait it out.

So, as my roots began to grow, I gathers what was left of my my hair (and my pride!) and slunk my way to my hair guru, Rebecca Taylor who, after chastising me for a dumb mistake, highly recommended that I abstain from color (bleach actually) and wait for some healthy hair to grow in.

So I decided to go ombre for a bit got up close and personal with some deep conditioners.

Ombre was cool for a bit, kind of funky in a carefree Drew Barrymore kind of way. But when one morning I woke up and staring back at me was Courtney Love without the track marks I decided it had to go. Fast.

I decided to throw caution to the wind and take a step to get back to my old golden glory.

Within minutes I was walking into Walgreen’s searching for the lesser of a thousand evils and, after 20 long minutes of contemplation, ended up leaving with a box of nine dollar L’oreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Highlighting Kit in (C100).

4. Leave it in for 30 minutes or for a more dramatic look maybe 45. I left mine in for 40 to be safe’ish’.

Then just wash your hair with the Shimmer Boost Hydrating Conditioner and…
