A cheap eyebrow make-over

Post by JOJO »

Once upon a time I used to treat myself to an eyebrow dye at the beauticians but over the last couple of years I have been doing it myself with a eyebrow dye kit from boots - costing about £9.00.

Needing to buy some more I decided to read the ingredients and it dawned on me that it was nothing more than a dark brown hair dye in a very small bottle that is quite expensive.

Today I got myself a dark brown Polycolour costing £1.99 and mixed a couple of drops of the peroxide with a cm of the colour cream and applied to my eyebrows with a cocktail stick.(because I couldn't find the cotton wool buds).

My eyebrows look fab and this box of hair dye will last me forever.
Eyebrow dyes use 10 vol cream peroxide and most dark permanent hair colours use 10 vol peroxide.

Sorry to disappoint you Bennu but they are looking fine and dandy ;) (she says....I'll probably wake-up tomorrow morning and find them next to me on the pillow).

Your right Bennu the product is for Brows and lashes but it's only 10 vol peroxide so certain hair dyes are no different. Theres no point doing my Lashes because I would still use mascara anyway.

Phew Jojo - I was worried when I read the title - you do have somewhat of a reputation when it comes to eyebrows - have your husband's grown back yet ;)
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave ............
