And with that, I chose to go for DIY hair coloring this time - instead of going to the salon and dishing out more than a thousand bucks (pesos, I mean) just to have it done. I actually considered going to Yue's barber, because they only charge Php 45 pesos (a little over a dollar), as opposed to the Php 150 rate of my stylist.
|See? I told you I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl. And a sneaker freak, too! :)|
|Ugh. The color is nearly gone, and I'm almost back to black!|
Now for the DIY part. Here's the arsenal.
|Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring #5 (Sweet Orange).|
|Clockiwise From L-R: Box, Pump (has liquid solution inside), Bubble Coloring Solution, |
Silky Perfumed Hair Treatment, Plastic Cape + Latex Gloves.
1. Wear the cape and latex gloves.
2. Pour the Bubble Coloring Solution inside the pump bottle.
3. Tilt the bottle from side to side so that it mixes with the Liquid Solution inside the bottle. Do not shake the bottle, as it may become too foamy to pump out.
4. Pump out the foamy mixture and apply it on your hair.
5. Leave it on for about 30 minutes.
6. Rinse thoroughly.
7. Apply the Silky Perfumed Treatment next.
8. Leave it on your hair for at least five to ten minutes.
I would have loved to share the step-by-step procedure in photos, but it's a tad too difficult to use the camera when your hands are covered in latex and/or bubble solution.
Here's how my DIY experiment turned out.
|One of the rare occasions that I do flash photography, lol.|
So yeah, I'm not complaining. All the more because it cost me just a fraction of what I would've spent in a salon.
Just a word of caution, though. The moment you rinse the color off, your hair will feel hella dry. Don't fret because this is what the Silky Perfumed Treatment is for. Use it generously and your hair will feel soft and smooth in no time. If you're still unsatisfied with it, try using Human Nature's Intensive Hair Mask. You'd be surprised at the wonders this product could do to your hair.
