Back to Brown | Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Colour

The last couple of weeks I have been sitting on the fence when it comes to my hair, do I go more blonde (think Khloe Kardashian’s recent look) or go back to my natural brown colour?! My hair has been lacking shine lately, so I decided to go back to my roots for a little while, and embrace the dark side.


To give you a reminder, I have been colouring my hair with the Balayage technique (see my DIY post here), and the ends have been getting blonder with every application. It has been about five years since I my hair was it’s natural colour, (four years balayage and one year red), so I decided to give my hair a break and go back to brown.

I was a little nervous about dying my hair, so I decided to go with Casting Creme Gloss in Caramel, which will last up to 28 washes. If I decide that I want to stay dark, then I will use a permanent colour in a couple of weeks.


The application was pretty straight forward, although you need to wet your hair before applying the colour, which I had not done before. I added the two colourants together, shook and applied all over my hair.

To make sure the application was even, I divided my hair into four sections and worked the colour from roots to tip. I followed the instructions and allowed the colour to develop for 20 minutes before rinsing and using the conditioner.


And the results: 


I am really happy with the colour, I love the warmth of the brown, and how evenly it coloured my hair. The bleach from my previous colourings will come through, and currently it adds dimension to my hair. I think I will most likely follow up with a permanent colour in a couple of weeks as the creme gloss begins to fade.

I think this is a great product, and a good way to gauge which shade to colour your hair before making a permanent change. You can buy Casting Creme Gloss in Caramel here.
