Hair color....and tip on how to lighten it if it comes out too dark!

I've gotten so many questions on my new hair color and a lot of you wanted to know which color I used.
I used L'Oreal Healthy Look 28 Day Color in Darkest Brown Espresso.

When I first colored I thought I made the biggest mistake. It was almost black and it was a shock to my face. Lili (@LMissObsessive ) is a hairstylist and told me to run out and get Pert shampoo right away (if you don't have Pert in your country Head and Shoulders or a stronger shampoo with detergent will do). It's best to do this within the first 24 hours. She told me to wash my hair 3-5 times for 5 minutes at a time scrubbing really good and the color should lift a bit. Deep condition GOOD afterwards. My hair has lightened up and I'm more comfortable with it now that it's not so dark.

So, if you have a hair blunder like I did and it comes out too dark.... get to washing! :)

De-scenting your smelly lipsticks...?

After I blogged about the L'Oreal Fairest Nude lipstick and how I didn't like the scent a few of my sweet readers suggested I "de-scent" the lipstick. Brilliant!! So I researched it and this is what you are supposed to do- simple and easy.

Just leave the cap off for a few days (no more than two days at a time) and the scent should wear off.

It didn't work on the stinkly L'Oreal lipstick! :( The scent it not as strong and definitely a lot more bearable but it's still there. I've let it sit open for about 5 days in total.

Have you tried this? Did it work for you? I didn't have much luck with mine!

Also, I'm still waiting to hear from my contest winner: "ASHWINI" I don't know if you contacted me through e-mail but I never got an e-mail from you!
Just make sure when you e-mail me you put "blog contest winner" in the subject so I know it's 
from you and let me know in the comments below that you sent an e-mail so I know it was
really from you! Thanks!

Have a good night!
