Hair Story | Innisfree Camellia Bubble Hair Color.

Surprise, surprise! I actually found the time to update this blog. I have been neglecting it for waaaay too long - but not without a reason, of course.

As I have mentioned in my Facebook page, my son's school activities have taken up most of my time. And with all the stuff that he's doing at school, plus his karate training during Saturdays, I don't even have the time to catch up on my Korean dramas (and you know how my day can never be complete without watching an episode or two of these Kdramas!), let alone catch up on my blog backlog. Hopefully, I will be able to get a one or two more blog posts up within this week, with the Eid ul Adha holiday coming up.

But first things first. Let me first share with you what happened last weekend (aside from Alden Richards and Yaya Dub and their most awaited date - yes, I'm a fan). I colored my hair again, and as always, in DIY-fashion.
Innisfree Camellia Bubble Hair Color.
This time around, I used the Camellia Bubble Hair Color from Innisfree, which I purchased for Php 295 from Kkochipida. There are no Innisfree stores here in the Philippines, so I usually shop for their products online. That, or my husband buys them for me. Haha. ;)
Hangul text at the back of the box.
Moving on, there are four shades to choose from in the Innisfree Camellia Bubble Hair Color Line, and the one that I got is #4 Burgundy Red.
Shade reference at the side panel.
Inside the box, you'll find the following: a pack of Coloring Solution (1), a bottle of Liquid Solution (2), two sachets of Hair Treatment (3), a cape, a pair of gloves, and an instruction booklet.
The instructions are written in Hangul, and comes with illustrations for the benefit of those who can't read Korean (me included).
You're in luck if you can read Hangul.

Otherwise, you can just deduce from these illustrations. ;)
So here's what I did:
1. Wear the cape and latex gloves.
2. Pour the 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 20-40 minutes. 
6. Rinse thoroughly.
7. Apply the Hair Treatment next.
8. Leave it on your hair for at least five to ten minutes.
9. Rinse.

Here's how the bubble foam looks like. It has a mild, floral scent, which I reckon comes from the camellia oil.
Grimace? :)
Like most Innisfree products, this Bubble Hair Color also has the 4-Free System. Meaning, it is free from ammonia, tar, silicone, and mineral oil. Plus points for being chemical-free!

Finally, here's how my experiment turned out.
From the 'after' photo, it may seem like my roots were not colored properly. In actual, however, it did a pretty good job of coloring my hair. Totally digging the soft, pinkish red shade! :)

My only gripe? The color bleeds like crazy!
I dyed my hair last Sunday, and the color still bleeds even after two days of washing! I've tried several brands of bubble hair coloring before, but this is the first time that I've experienced excessive bleeding. I couldn't even wear light-colored tops, out of fear of staining my clothes. Here's hoping that there will be no more bleeding when I wash my hair tomorrow. Fingers crossed. ;)


  1. Nasa mga beauty stores ba yan sis? I'm looking for a hair color kasi.

  2. Hi Dulce! Unfortunately, there are no Innisfree stores in the Philippines. :( Try to inquire with Charm of Kkochipida, she might still have this in stock.

  3. I love this kind of hair color. Etude also has that. My daughter was the one who introduced it to me and I've been using it ever since.

  4. I love this kind of hair color. Etude also has that. My daughter was the one who introduced it to me and I've been using it ever since.

  5. Very cool! I get my hair colored at the salon, so I can't use products like this, but I love the color :)

  6. I do love that color on you. Wonderful shade. I don't think there are any stores here, but I will look for them.

  7. What a pretty color! I love colorful styles! I sure could use a new look!

  8. The color came out beautifully. I'm sorry that it bleeds so easily though!

  9. I'm looking also for a hair color, I wanna try it but you've just said na wala sa Philippines.

  10. I hear you on busy! Your hair looks soft and pretty, and the color does look nice. You're brave to do it at home, the one time I did cured me for life. ;)

  11. There are 2 packets for hair treatment! Can you please help me that how can I use the both treatment ?
