Since the start of the year I told myself I will change my looks more and test things since I am not getting any younger so experimenting would definitely be on top of my list.
With that I've actually started with my hair. I have already gone blonde although that was a little hard to maintain since I remember being told to go back after a number of weeks to have my roots done but never seem to do it because
1. The salon I got it done was quite far from my place.
2. Its still expensive
3. It would damage my hair tremendously
I still have qualms about getting my hair colored again professionally so I asked my mom if its much better if I color it myself - she said yes but gave me the low down on the things I have to do...remembering all those information was a toughie but I was able to get a simpler solution with it - this hair dye shampoo~
My mom discovered this actually and asked me to try it on my hair since she knows I need to cover up my ends ever since I got my hair cut my kind of looked like an ombre mess hall. The blonde half mixed with my natural light brown hair didn't really looked pleasing to the eyes so I gave iColor a try.
Its said that this hair dye shampoo has no ammonia meaning that it would not burn the scalp. It is also mess free and instant since all you need to do is apply it to your wet hair and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes for the color while 3-5 minutes for black.
According to this it also nourishes, protects and repairs the hair that will leave it healthy and shiny. Since this has Olive and Noni extract, it would also condition the hair thus preventing dandruff which is a normal occurrence if your scalp had dried out from the hair color.
This is what my hair looks like before the procedure. It looks dry and lifeless. I wasn't really liking how it looked like because I look like a druggie on rehab - have been told that in my face so don't hate!
Here are the instructions:
1. Wet hair thoroughly.
2. Mix the contents of the sachet in a container.
3. Apply the shampoo and massage it for about 3-5 minutes.
4. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes (for color) 3-5 minutes (for black hair)
5. Rinse thoroughly with cold water.
The procedure just takes about half an hour so in the meantime of waiting why don't we do selfies! LOL kidding!
This was supposed to be a selfie but then I noticed the smear in my forehead... WT...?!?!
And this is when I have washed my hair. The color can't be seen that much so I activated the flash.
And there we go! Tanso este the red is showing. I noticed that the color shows more on the lower ends of my hair because I got it colored in a lighter shade so expect that the color may vary per hair color.
There are some touches on the top part of my hair which is nice since it doesn't look like fake at all.
And there we go! burgundy hair is all dry! but it looks like a reddish brown hue right? oh well..
And this is the after shot. My hair looks much healthier with its new shade and according to some the color compliments well to my skin color. It also made my hair looked shiny and more alive.
What I like:
- locally available
- easy to apply.
- not messy.
- doesn't sting the scalp.
What I don't like:
- The color pay off may vary.
- limited colors.
If you are a beginner and would like to try to color your hair or you would like to cover your gray hair this one is a pretty good product to use. I like that it doesn't sting the scalp because it has no ammonia. The scent of the product is not irritating as well which is good.
Would I repurchase?
If I have to, yes. But as of the moment I am happy with my current hair color.
