Backed by celebrities such as Holly Willoughby and Davina McCall, both of which seem to always have effortlessly stunning, full bodied, shiny locks, it’s no surprise that the Nutrisse Permanent Hair Dye by Garnier is a hair colour industry favourite and that it has become everybody’s go-to for at home hair dye whilst salons are closed. A deeply conditioning blend of oils, the dye nourishes hair whilst it colours and lasts an impressive eight weeks, making it no surprise that it’s the dye of choice for those in busy industries such as show business. Don’t believe it? Holly Willoughby herself posted a video on her Instagram channel dying her at home using the Nutrisse in shade 10.01 to keep her hair blonde and shiny in lock down, as as well as the expert step-by-step so that you can achieve the same camera ready tresses too.

How to find your perfect shade:
Have you ever wondered what the numbers on the front of the box? Turns out they’re not just a product code and we actually should be using them! The first number equates to how dark or light the colour will be. For example, blonde shades range from darker blondes at 7 to light blondes at 10, whereas brown shades start with darker colours at 4 and work up to your light browns at 6. The second number is a reference to whether the colour is neutral (o), cool (1 or 2), or warm (3-6). For example, if you’re trying to achieve Holly’s vibrant natural looking Baby Blonde, it’s 10.01.
Can’t decide between 2 shades? Always choose the lightest of the two. Hair Dye can only lighten your natural hair colour 1 to 2 levels so if you have dark hair and want to go blonde, you will need to bleach first.
