It's been 2 weeks since I dyed my hair. Where does the time go?? At any rate, today was the day for me to apply the colour booster product that came in my L'Oreal Preference Inifina box.
The instructions were straightforward - apply after shampooing to towel dried hair. Great! What it didn't mention at all was conditioner. I applied it without (which I'm sure is correct) but now my hair doesn't feel "conditioned." It's fine, but after I condition is has a more moisturized feeling that's lacking after this colour booster.
I was hoping the booster would help me hide the little areas I missed when I coloured in the first place. I had managed to miss that little space just in front of my ears (where you'd grow sideburns if you were more manly!) so I managed to get this nice red colour booster onto those hairs. I feel like it did deposit a little colour there, but since it deposited on the rest of my head as well it's still a "missed spot." The mousy brown natural colour isn't quite so obvious though!
The booster was a success. My hair is now more red like it was on the first day. I guess that's why they want me using the hashtag #makeday1last! Being a more introverted person I actually prefer my hair after I've washed it a few times. But I do love the shine it returns to my hair.

Overall this is a great hair dye package. If you're looking for a dramatic change, I'd recommend it. Obviously the darker your starting shade, the less obvious the colour will be. The booster really does help you return to the first day colour, as advertised.
