I know that it's really hard for me to change the hair color unless i have it bleached but you can't blame a woman for trying especially if there are already several white hairs peeking every now & then.
I'll not go into the woes of aging.
You'll just know what im saying about once you start seeing the natural signs of aging coming at you slowly but surely.
On we go to the product review...
I saw this when i was walking along the aisle of Watsons & was surprised with how cheap it was. It's only Php49, which is more or less $1. I even told my self that with this price, it sure will just ruin my hair. It may end up making my hair all brittle & dry & will smell as bad as... the durian fruit. hehehe
Y'all know how i hate the smell of hair colorants.
Well,i'll tell you first hand that this product is not as bad as what i thought it was. Just read on to know what i think about it...
It comes in 3 shades... black, dark brown & medium brown.
Feel free to read the description & ingredients.
Just click it to enlarge the image
This is what's included in the kit.
The solution & 2 plastic gloves.
The pack contains the shampoo & the fixative, separated inside so when you pour it in your palm.
When you squeeze it on your palm you'll end up with 2 products & you'll have to mix them together before you start massaging it on your hair.
Since this is a shampoo, there will be bubbles on it.
I think the process is just like how bubble hair dyes pretty much work except that this one needs more work because this is not foamy to start with so you'll have to massage it more than bubble hair dyes.
They provided a picture at the back..though it's not really helpful to start with because how the heck can that color be dark?
Sorry,i don't have before pictures, but anyway it's not hard to imagine how my hair looks like prior to application because i told you that i have a jet black hair (which is a pain to color without having it bleached).
Here's the after picture...
Hmm... well, there's a tinge of brown somehow, methinks.. or am i just fooling my eyes?
Ok, another picture taken outside...
uh... yeah, i think there's a teeny tinge of brown.. somehow.
The effect is not that obvious on me because i said that my natural hair color is really very dark but i believe that there is a slight color change. For a product that is only Php49 each, this is more effective than Etude's Bubble hair dye imo.
Since this is just a shampoo, you would have to deeply condition your hair afterwards so you have to buy a good hair mask together with it. One more thing, it says that it's ammonia-free but i still smell the scent of ammonia. If you weren't bothered with the scent of ammonia when you use bubble hair dyes then you won't have any problem with it.
- really affordable - Php49 only
- locally available
- easy to use
- limited shades (3 shades only)
- there's a lingering scent of ammonia (of course!)
- could leave your hair dry (so you have to condition after)
I want to really say that it works because i think it does it's just that since it's hard to show you the effect, i'll leave it up to you. I would suggest that you try this if you are on a budget though. What's there to lose?
By the way, i used 2 packs on my hair because i have a really long hair. I applied this on dry hair though. I've been reading the whole pack to see if there is a mention about the application but i can't find any mention so i just decided to apply it on dry hair. Maybe it will work better on wet hair?
Make sure that you check the ingredients list to see if there is any/one of the ingredients that you are allergic to.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave it on the comment box & i'll get back to you asap.
Hope you all will have a great weekend!
