To keep my pesky greys at bay I have to dye my hair quite often and sadly, the older I get the more often I have to dye my hair. (Next year will 'celebrate' 20 years of going grey.) Even cheapy options can be a bit expensive and I have to wait for a while before I can find a suitable offer anywhere remotely close to me so I was thinking of DIY but I haven't dyed my hair myself since the early 90s.
Are home bought hair dyes any good? Do they come up as nice as hairdressers? I have very thick, coarse hair so I would need to by 2 or even 3 packets of whatever it is that I choose.
Can anyone recommend brands or advise brands to stay away from?

Hair Dye - hairdressers or home pack?

I do mine myself. I just can't afford /justify the cost. I buy whatever is going cheap. I use a brush to apply mine and hairdressers have told me that I do a good job. How long is your hair?

It's about down to my arm pits.

I would have thought 2 packs would do it. But definitely get yourself an applicator brush from price attack or similar. Also, to avoid colour build up on your mid and long lengths, apply colour to your roots for the full *grey* length of time and then do the rest for the last part . The colour pack should have instructions for this. I am a fellow silver mummy.
