New hair! Well, the color at least...



I colored my hair a few days ago using a new product I was sent for review, and I am so pleased with the results. Now, let me say that I do not accept all products that are offered to me, nor do I give those I do try always a good rating, but I have to say I was pretty impressed with this company.

The brand is called eSalon and they provide custom-formulated hair color according to your personal profile, where you submit your hair length, texture, previous hair coloring experiences, etc. Then the site gives you a result of appropriate and achievable colors to choose from, after which the formula is prepared specifically to your needs with personalized instructions. I loved the concept of all this, so I decided to give it a whirl.

I do have to say that the process was a bit more complicated and time consuming than a drugstore box dye, but I think the results are so much better. The end color is very even, and I liked how two specific color bottles were provided, one for my roots, one for my ends. This ensured enough product for my long hair, and for the price I think it's a really good deal, as I normally have to buy 2 boxes of color if I buy from the drugstore.

Also included with your first order is a free home coloring tool kit, which includes such things as 4 butterfly clips for sectioning your hair, a mixing bowl, a color brush applicator, a timer, and a salon-style cape for protecting your clothes. If I bought all these things separately here, I would probably be spending quite a bit of extra money.

The whole set (including the free tool kit with your first order) costs $22.00, and they have a money-back guarantee within 30 days if you're not satisfied. I had the product sent to me for free, but to be honest, I think this is an amazing bargain for everything you get - if I bought everything separately here, I would spending well above that amount, especially with having to buy 2 box dyes to get the same amount of product.

If you're interested in trying out eSalon, the company has shared a discount code with me to pass on to my viewers and readers, so make sure to use it!

eSalon.com
Discount code: MISSCH (20% discount on your first order)

Right now they only ship to the USA, unfortunately, as they are a small start-up company. I hope they will expand their shipping to more countries soon! I'm bummed I won't be able to use their product anymore because if they shipped to Switzerland, I would definitely repurchase.

    Although definately more time consuming I decided to give eSalon a try. I'm not especially disatisfied with my present brand (clairol beautiful collection) which I buy in the beauty supply store but I thought I would give this a try to see if I like the results better. Thanks for the discount code.
