There's no need to pre-lighten your hair as you simply mix the colour with some peroxide. I opted for the mildest strength (6%) as my natural hair colour is quite fair (I think).
Smooshed it all together and it went a really promising shade of orange! Slapped it on, roots first and then just rubbed it all the way through the rest. Kept it on for the recommended 35 minutes and rinsed.
Voila! Freakin' brilliant ORANGE hair!! This is the colour I've been craving and I'm over the moon. Majicontrast is a dream to use - I couldn't recommend it enough! It comes in varying shades of red, something for everyone. And, because it's for use in salons, you can add different toners etc to get your perfect shade.
