Review: Revlon Colorsilk hair dye

I was not sponsored to write this post. I will not be making any money for my opinions. There are affiliate links included,  if you choose to click and purchase through that affiliate link,  it will not cost you any extra money.  It will only give me a small commission of the sale.

I am kind of a cheap person... like I will avoid spending money as much as possible. I am also one who loves to have crazy colored hair or awesome hairstyles. So I try to find the best deal I can to get what I want.

 When I'm in between my 6 months of visiting my salon, I need to keep my hair looking as good as I can for cheap. 
Last week I was in desperate need to touch up my roots... like it was getting pretty bad.
I didn't have the money to visit my salon,  so I needed to find a cheap alternative. I came across Revlon Colorsilk. It was the cheapest option there. It cost $2.97. The other brands ranged from $6-12 so I was a little unsure whether I could get away with going so cheap on hair dye. But I decided to try it. ( my cheap side can talk me into lots of crazy things!) 

When I started the process,  the instructions were easy and clear to understand,  it also came with two plastic gloves to use, and some after color conditioner.  I touched up my roots, which only used about half the product. 
I also wanted to get the rest of my hair to the pink color I wanted, and I had some high-quality salon dye for that.  I did it all at the same time. 

After waiting 25 minutes based on the instructions, I jumped in the shower to wash my hair. I used colder water to help the color stay in better.
The little pack of conditioner they give you was just ok. 
I have this colored hair shampoo and conditioner that I felt was better for my hair. 

I was very surprised at how well it turned out. I'm definitely no professional. I feel like for doing my own hair,  it turned out pretty great. Even after the first wash,  it still holds its color well. 


Overall, I think this hair dye is definitely worth trying out. It saved me lots of money and it seems to hold up just like the other more expensive hair dyes out there! 

I hope I've helped answer any questions you may have on this brand of hair dye. Please,  if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!


  1. Yes! I love how you save money but still find ways to spend it on the things you love. Awesome hair color! It really compliments you.

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want. 

1. Have a great emotional intelligence. 
Emotional Intelligence is something that is important to work on regardless of where you are in your life. To have or improve on emotional intelligence, you need to work on understanding both your emotions and other people's emotions.
 When your able to identify how your feeling, you are able to control them better. It will help you to be able to step back and look at…
