  • Yes, I have for years. I used to like NIce n Easy’s foam formula, but they have stopped making it so I’ll have to look for something else.

  • Yes, for many decades. I don’t have time to spend two hours plus at the hairdressers. I used to always use Nice’n easy but I’ve recently changed to L’Oreal Excellence Creme and love it. Just my personal opinion but I find it superior to the other brand and my hair feels and looks the best it has done in years. Instead of paying $16.00 for it at Woolworths, I wait until they have it on special for $10.00 and buy several boxes each time.

  • I do my own hair at home. I may not do it perfectly but im saving money and i dont take 4hrs in a hairdresser. I rather be comfortable as well. As for brands i just choose the ones on special but popular brands. If i choose cheaper ones i put coconut oil the next day to put moisture back in as i get dry on the ends.

  • Yes, I do and have been for years. I use Nice’N Easy and find it excellent. Mum uses a more natural one – Herbatint, and find it very good too.

  • I do not colour my hair and lol people ask me where I get my hair coloured! I love the natural grey streaks and highlights. I would google hair sites and get reviews on hair dyes – just to ensure you have information about any possible reactions to the dyes, price and coverage. Good luck!

  • Most hair dyes are toxic, so be carful around babies and children, even yourself. There are some natural brands but also henna.

  • How very strange I have only just had my hair cut today (hello boy do those greys show up after a cut) and returning back home gave my hair a fresh new colour. Now back to the question at hand ..personally I tend to purchase hair dyes when on special and have a tendency to buy what is on special as long as I can get a colour I like. Today I used Schwarzkopf salon permanent but I have also used Revlon colorsilk, Garnier Nutrisse but probably my favourite would be Garnier OLIA with oils. Personally I can’t justify the money hairdresser’s/salons charge for colouring hair and while I can still see and manage i will do my own at home. All the best to you and happy colouring:-)
