I like to try out different hair colour brands to see what works best for me. I've used them all out there, Nice 'n Easy, Perfect 10, Garnier, Schwarzkopf, L'Oreal, John Frieda and throughout trying them out, I noticed that the cheaper you go, ironically the better hair dye you get. Schwarzkopf for me has work the best and I've been using their Poly Colour Tint in dark brown for the best part of 3 months. I decided last week to go for a different brand because I think sometimes your hair can get too used to a dye, you need to mix things up every so often.
So as I was pacing up the hair dye isle of Superdrug, I noticed their own brand Colour Performance which is priced at a great price of £3.25. I remember my mother used this once and she said that the hair dye left her hair in great condition, soft & shiny and with a great colour that lasts. I decided to use Colour Performance in Darkest Brown:
When I was applying the hair dye, I noticed that formula is quite watery, which is quite good because it spreads better and evenly. You have to let it develop over 30 minutes and through out that time there was no dripping or spillage of the dye which was great.
I always think a good hair dye should be easy to wash out, and it did wash out very good actually. Dark hair dyes normally leave your shower a bit of mess but this one didn't fortunately. I liked the conditioner it was included with, it leaves your hair really soft straight after application!
As I finished drying my hair and looked into the mirror to see how the dye performed, I was happily surprised. The dye managed to work with my hair very well indeed, it gave my hair a lovely rich dark chocolate brown hue. As dark browns can be quite misleading and can come out a black, this one didn't and it produced a lovely rich and glossy shade of dark brown. I gave great even coverage as well that I'm really pleased with.
For being Superdrug's own brand, it performed fantastically. This certainly beats going to the hairdressers and dearer brands such as L'Oreal and Perfect 10. Being priced at such a low a price, it's definitely worth all of £3.25
