L'Oréal Paris Prodigy Platine 8.1 3.7 5 3 3
Good Natural Shade The colour came out darker than expected but I did have very light blonde hair with light brown regrow the. The colour is multitonal and would be a good natural colour base for highlights. I feel it would be a good dye to reduce and neutralise brassy tones. This certainly blended my roots with my existing blonde highlights and I was happy with the results. I used as directed, however the dye did leave my hair feeling dry afterwards so I had to use a lot of deep conditioner. It was also not the easiest texture to apply and cover all my hair with. The developing time was 20 minutes so very quick and it did not smell bad. Overall I like the colour and would probably use again. August 19, 2015
Finally, a cool dark blonde to minimise red tones Since going blonde, I have tried at many shades in the search for a cool dark blonde. I am naturally mid-brown with a lot of hidden red in my hair and it's been like looking for the holy grail. Prodigy Platine 8.1 is by far the best; I was using a similar type of dye in number 8.13 by another manufacturer which was nice but still not cool enough for me, as the 3 at the end of the number means it has a golden undertone in the dye. Realistically, Prodigy 8.1 is the coolest I'm going to get at home, it is a really nice shade and is multi-tonal as they claim. It didn't cover all of my grey hairs but, since it's a blonde dye, they don't really show and if anything just add to the multi-tonal look so this does not bother me. It will come out darker than you expect, I've learned that you always need to go a shade lighter than you think with blonde hair colour. My tip is also not to wash your hair for at least three days after dying to stop colour fade (which happens a lot with blonde shades) and also avoid using any oil-based or conditioning hair products which penetrate the hair follicle during this period (obviously do use the conditioner provided in the pack straight after dying though). Also use a purple shampoo at least once a week to keep the warm tones out, It's been over 4 weeks since I used the dye and I haven't really seen any fade, Leaves hair in the best condition I've had from a home dye and the gloves are actually usable.

Bizarre Not really sure how this very light blonde hair dye turned my hair medium brown with grey undertones... extremely disappointed. October 13, 2016
