This time around, I'm giving The Face Shop's Mild Bubble Hair Color a try. I got this for Php 345 (around $8 or 8000 Korean won) from Kkochi Pida, the same online store where I got my Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips.
|Suzy for The Face Shop! :)|
|Hangul text at the back.|
|Shade reference at the side panel.|
|Illustrations on the leaflet.|
|Latex gloves and plastic cape.|
|Pack 1 (oxidizing agent) and Pack 2 (dye).|
Now here are the before and after shots of my hair.
|To somewhat medium brown.|
|The orange is prominent at the tips.|
And yeah, my prescription lens are that thick.
After rinsing the colored gunk off my hair, my initial reaction was, "Wow, this stuff doesn't dry my hair! It doesn't smell bad, either!" And then I looked at the bathroom mirror and went, "Oh my, it doesn't work!" Because from what I saw, my hair still looked black. Or so I thought.
The following morning, I was relieved to see that my hair color seemed to have lighten a bit. These 'after' photos were actually taken about 18 hours after my DIY project. And from what I've observed, it takes about 24-48 hours for the color to really 'pop'.
It's been two days since, and I'm happy to say that my hair has turned into a softer shade of brown with a hint of orange to it. :)
What I love:
- Easy to use (despite the Hangul instructions).
- Doesn't leave your hair stiff and dry.
- No overpowering chemical scent.
- Treatment cream smells really good, plus it makes the hair smooth and shiny.
- Affordable price.
- Several shades to choose from.
- It works! (After all, haha!)
What you might not like:
- Not available locally, methinks. (Because it's not available in TFS' branch here in my area.)
