I like it when I have laid back weekends because it gives me time to do things for myself without being in a such a rush. My latest self-improvisation project was to dye my hair using the Prettia bubble hair dye i got from ichibankao.
Here's what's inside the carton:
1 pair of disposable gloves, 1 bottle pump, the 2 bottles of hair colorants (to mix), 1 packet of hair treatment essence and instructions (in japanese)
1) Put on gloves
2) Pour contents of bottle 1 to the larger bottle 2, close cap
3) Mix in a gentle, see-saw motion, DO NOT SHAKE
4) Take off cap and put on pump, Press bottle UPRIGHT to get bubble hair dye
5) Apply evenly on hair as if shampooing
6) Leave on for 30 minutes.
7) Rinse, Shampoo
8) Apply treatment essence afterwards
Here's my hair before the treatment, this is my natural hair color, I've never dyed my hair prior to this, I was just dead curious about this product as it looks super fun and easy to do. Plus I have read good reviews from fellow bloggers Lisa and Kathi :)
oooh *bubbles* @.@
and 45 minutes later, TADAH! Royal brown tresses! I was pleasantly surprised that the color on the box matched the color outcome on my hair. :)
CONFESSION: I accidentally left it on longer than I should have (about 15 minutes longer) because I was chatting on the phone with a friend, I was really afraid my hair would come out "burned", but when I rinsed my hair it came out alright.
The only thing i forgot to do was to dye my eyebrows too! Has anyone tried dying their brows with this? I find the chemical smell overwhelming whenever I sniff it so I'm not sure if its safe to use near the eyes.
EDIT: This product is NOT meant to be used on eyebrows. It is also not suitable for gray hair.
