Madison Reed Hair Color: A pampering, luxurious experience. And a giveaway!

Saturday, October 11, 2014


Coloring your hair can be an experience. What experience is up to you. Madison Reed takes the dull out of your hair, and your day.

When did doing something great for you become a chore? Madison Reed inspired me to create a luxury and wellness at home day. So I enjoyed a day for me - to relax, de-stress, pamper myself and to emerge with a new hair color.

I have been coloring my hair for years. So I was excited to try Madison Reed hair color. Their website makes it easy to choose a color. Answer a few questions about your skin tone, if you have gray hair, and they recommend the best colors for you. Here is what they recommended for me. I went with Tuscany Brown as my hair had turned rather brassy from being out in the sun all summer. Visit the Madison Reed website to get personalized recommendations for you. You can get 50 percent off your first order by using the code MRPAMPER. The color costs $24.95 if you subscribe to the continuous color plan, or $29.95 for one box.

With the house to myself, I set my plan in motion. I gathered everything I would need for "me time."


With everything in place and my iPod playing my favorite mix of music, I started my day. Madison Reed's hair color was opened and the instructions (which were oh-so-easy) were read. The hair color I chose was "Tuscany Brown." My hair has a lot of natural red highlights, so I usually avoid color that has a lot of red tones. This one fit the bill perfectly. An added plus is that you can set it up to get Madison Reed hair color delivered to your door on a schedule. I love that aspect of the site. Half the time I can never remember what color I used the last time I colored my hair.

I didn't take photos of the actual coloring process as I was nervous I would get dye on my camera. But it was a breeze. And there were no harsh chemical smells. After 35 minutes, I rinsed the coloring out and shampooed with the Madison Reed Shampoo and Conditioner. I love the spice scent of these products. And to share this with you, there is a giveaway below. One person will win a bottle of the Madison Reed Shampoo and Conditioner! That's a $30 value.


Madison Reed’s color is salon-quality, and the results prove it. And even better, the ingredients are safer for you than drugstore brands and other online brands: no PPD, no resorcinol, no ammonia, and no added parabens. Plus, it’s filled with great ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root, leaving your hair shiny and conditioned!



Prior to using Madison Reed my hair was showing signs of intense color treatments and my gray was lifting its ugly head. After, it looks and feels healthy. I love this shade - it is a deep brown, but yet highlights my natural red tones.

To finish my "me day," I watched the movie, Divergent, and painted my nails with custom Elevation Nail Polish that I received for a birthday present.

  56. This Madison Reed Site is So Cool, Thanks for Letting Us Know about this Site! I Have Not Colored My Hair in Years b/c I Ruined My Hair in My Early Twenties with Really Blonde Hair Color in a Box! I Did Not Know that When you Touched Up your Roots that You Just put it on the Roots and Run it Through the Rest at the Very End! So Every Other Month I Was Bleaching My Whole Head and I Ruined My Hair! Maybe it Just Traumatized Me but I Had to Give it a Break to Let My Hair Get Healthy Again! Well I Have Not Colored My Hair for about 8 Years Now and it's Time b/c I am Getting Bored with the Same Old Same Old! I have Medium Brown Hair but I Want More Caramel Colored Hair which is a Little Lighter than the Recommended Color, but Not by Much! I Loved the Lucca Light Brown the Best! It is Gorgeous with Beautiful Highlights! Thanks for this Awesome Opportunity, My Hair Thanks You! Have a Blessed Day! Jana
