Makeover Mondays :Loreal Paris Feria DIY dye kits

Box Dyed w/ Salon Highlights (whole head)
I have dyed my hair by myself since I was 8th grade. I believe I was around 13 at the time.  The very first dye kit I used was Clairol's Nice and Easy. Its the one with Ammonia and Lead in it. Things that the scientists found out later on.  Remember, this is around 1995. lol. It took forever to grow out my hair to cut it off. I dyed my hair a shade lighter but I looked like a skunk because the previous color job of blue black I dyed before.

As years gone by, the hair dyeing kits got better and by experimenting with few brands here and there. I have found a brand that I can rely on. The brand is L'oreal Paris Feria. For $2-3 dollars more, you really do get your moneys worth. I have used platinum blonde to Blackest Black and it has never failed me. I always have used the Permanent Level, so I don't have to dye my hair continuously.  For being a child or being a student, I didn't have the luxury to dye my hair at a professional salon all the time.

<--------To save money, I would dye my hair to a golden brown  and get highlights at a local salon at my hometown. I chose this color because this model was probably the only Asian Model for L'Oreal and she didn't have black When I moved to the bay area, I got a big reality check. The Salons around these parts want 2 to 3 times more than what I would pay around my hometown parents house. It is pretty ridiculous, because I have had my hair done at a high end salon, and I did not like the results at all. What I hate the most, is that the colorist act like they know what they are talking about, but what they do is making my hair look absolutely worse than before. Thinking, the more money I spend the better look of my hair? Wrong! Dead wrong.
So after spending around $1000 on colorists...about $120 a process in one year, I threw my hands up. I told my self that, if anybody is going to fuck up my hair again, It will be me. I can't hate myself forever, right? lol.  So I got on the computer to search for great temporary boxed dye kits around. The one that end up buying was THIS:
