NEW HAIR COLOUR: FEATURING. SCHWARZKOPF BRILLIANCE INTENSE PERMANENT COLOUR - DARK BROWN ALLURE 88 - REVIEW + RESULTS!


 HAPPY SUNDAY LOVELIES! 

(OR FOR THE OTHERS...THE WEEKENDS HAS ONLY STARTED!) 

If there's one thing I love to always do in the convenience of my own home is dying my own hair. Only because it's super easy, much affordable and of course, convenient for me to do so. I tried out a new brand from the Schwarzkopf range which features their NEW Brilliance Fashion Lights range which is a revolutionary range that provides amazing colour and heaps of shine to your hair that will look to last. The new Brilliance range is a popular range that features an intense permanent colour to it. I tried out Dark Brown Allure in 88 from the Brilliance Intense Permanent Colour which is more of a warm brown shade that instantly made my overall hair colour look shinier, appear healthier and it just looked like one solid colour which is good. 

Apparently, the Schwarzkopf Brilliance range is the most popular range for women currently all over the world because it's a brand that looks to deliver long-lasting results and the colours are amazing. In the box, it comes with a capsule of diamond gloss serum which is perfect for mixing brilliant colour. It was quite fun and interesting to mix in the small capsule in the Developer Bottle because I felt that overall, the product gave my hair more shine to it and it looks simply radiant. Thanks to their new innovative formula, the Brilliance looks to provide "intense" looking results. It's a product that gives an intense colour to hair with their innovative mix of intensity pigments where I have to say that for a "brunette" colour range, it was very intense and the colour just stood out for me. 

In the box you get the following contents: 
  • 1 x Tube Brilliance - Intense Colour Creme (60ml) 
  • 1 x Capsule Diamond Gloss Serum (1.2ml) 
  • 1 x Developer Bottle (60ml) 
  • 1 x Tube Brilliance Colour-Shine Conditioner 
  • 1 x Pair of Gloves
  • 1 x Instruction leaflet 
So how the Diamond Gloss serum works is that I would simply mix it in with the Brilliance formula upon application for if you are wanting to achieve three times the more long lasting shine to your hair. Also, with the Brilliance formula - it looks to smooth the hair's surface to seal any colour pigments within the hair therefore giving you a much longer lasting colour. 

In terms of how many boxes you should use for your hair, that would really depend on the thickness to it. I only used one box and that's because my hair is quite long but thin at the same time, so hence there was just enough coverage by just using one box. However, if you feel that your hair is long and thick, then I would highly recommend you to get two boxes to get the ultimate coverage for a full head. Also, your colour result will really depend on your natural hair colour as the shade that I used in Allure, Dark Brown 88 is not recommended over bleached hair so keep that in mind. Overall, I was amazed by the new hair colour I was able to achieve by using the Brilliance Permanent Colour in allure, dark brown 88. Before, my hair colour had a lighter honey, brown shade to it with some bits of regrowth. So you can really picture how HAPPY I was to just get a new look for Spring15'. I am so loving the new hair colour because of how warm and clean it looks. The shine to it is quite intense and I definitely satisfied with using the NEW Brilliance Intense colour range. 

For those who are NEW to dying their hair at home, here are my quick and easy steps on how to achieve the hair dying process: 
  • Step 1: Put on the gloves provided in the kit. 
  • Step 2: Mix the developer, creme and also the serum together. What you want to do here is add the creme and serum to the developer. Once all is in, close the cap and shake the developer bottle until you can see a creamy consistency being made. 
  • Step 3: Part your hair and make sure you brush it through to avoid any messy knots that can come in between of this process. 
  • Step 4: Start by applying it to your hair beginning at the roots. I usually like to start by parting my hair in the middle and working my at the top and down to the bottom ends. 
  • Step 5: Work through each section and make sure you cover all top and bottom. 
  • Step 6: Once finished, look to massage your head and leave the dye in for about 30 minutes. Put a disposable shower cap on if desired. 
  • Step 7: Once the 30 minutes is up, look to rinse your hair with lukewarm water and also the Brilliance Colour-Shine Conditioner that is also provided in the box. 
So results wise I felt that the colour was really intense and bold. Also, the colour looks to even intensify more with even more washes so that was an interesting part to it. The smell is not even overpowering for me so that was quite bearable for a hair dye. It's also great to know that a product that you're using on your hair is not too strong which just makes the hair dying process much easier overall. 

If you are wanting a product that gives you amazing results and shiny hair, I truly recommend you to check the Brilliance range out!
