I love Movida and i feel exactly as you at the moment. Im pig sick of my hair as i had it layered and my hairdresser advised me to have some streaks and foils in it, but i suppose he would say that at 30 squid a treatment. I have been using Movida in Auburn and it really picks up the grey bits and looks very natural. I have very pale skin and it looks warm against it without looking hard. It also brings out the green in my eyes and if you use a purple mascara and wear autumnal colours it can look wicked with a flush of a pink blusher and a nice pink or brown lippy.

Hi Laura! I've used both Clairol's Natural Instincts and L'Oreal's Color Spa(?) and both have worked very well for me. Because my hair is previously treated and more susceptible to absorbing color, I have to be careful and choose a color that I consider lighter than my current color. I tried to match my color exactly and I ended up with much darker hair.

Heya Laura!
This one is a semi-permanent color. And for anyone who is curious, Color Spa used to be called Castings, then changed its name a few years back.

Yeah... used to be Castings color spa... they just did away with the whole "Castings" thing... but yes, it's a semi-perm.

I sent my mum looking for color pulse today but any store she went in to, they didn't have it. I know i saw it somewhere recently though! Check out loreal's site girlie & you'll see what its about. Its semi-permanent & lasts 8-10 washes which is just what i'm looking for!

Clairol is a nice make too and is pretty gentle on the hair. Laura, Movida is in an orange box and is really good, i have used that one as well. Loreal is another good make, i like their colors that can add blue or purple tones to the hair. Perfect is you have black hair.

I'm going to call up Wal-Mart tomorrow or something like that and see if I can get them to order it for me. But I was just wondering if anyone know a place that they know of that actually sales it.

Hi AngelKelli!! That's for joining us!!
Actually another member PM'ed me lately on this - I haven't seen it around here ANYWHERE.... not even mentioned on the L'Oreal website. If you scroll up, you'll see that Laura mentions this color... but she is in Ireland. Guess it's not available in the US yet. Maybe Laura knows a site that will ship it to you???
