Bubbly Hair Color

Remember back in August when I went to Hong Kong, I purchased 2 Liese hair colors? Well, maybe I didn't post both up, but I did buy 2 because of my indecisive-ness.
At the end of August, I used the Cassis Berry color ($68HKD), which didn't turn out as red as I wanted it to be... click here for the review, this time I used the Glossy Brown color.

It's a pretty basic hair coloring kit, mix the stuff up and use the conditioner at the end. However, this time I forgot I wasn't supposed to shake the mix. For this foamy mix, you're supposed to gently tilt the bottle around, so the first few squeezes from the bottle came out too runny.

Before shots in the bathroom and in front of the window. My hair has grown out so much since the last time I coloured.

If you compare this with the review of the Cassis Berry, it doesn't look as foamy, partly because I shook it. The dye was so strange, it turn from a muddy red shade to a blueish shade.

I left it in for 30 minutes. The result was a coffee brown with a touch of milk in it, it actually looked a bit yellowish in the light. However, it doesn't show up like that in the pictures.
So much shinier now! The color came out a lot more even than the first time I used the foamy hair color.

The next day, I washed my hair and the yellowness died down. Now it's more like a chocolate shade.

After using the Liese hair coloring kit 2 times, I doubt I'll repurchase it. The color doesn't last very long and it's sometimes hard to get the bubbles down to the roots. But the good thing was, it didn't drip and it's a fun way of dying your hair.

I started using the L'oreal cleanser but didn't use the scrublet thing because I had my Clarisonic. It was quite runny and I'm sad it doesn't foam up very well, at least not with the Clarisonic. It left my skin feeling clean without the dry squeaky feeling and it also had a mild tingly feeling.

Your hair looks so pretty! How do you keep it looking so healthy? My hair's as dry as hay from dying it to a mocha brown color. I saw some other bloggers using that dye too. It sounds really fun to use with all that foamy-ness.
Could you do a review on the Clarisonic? I really want to know how it compares to regular facial cleansing.

I've been planning to try this range of hairdye since reading Lotus Palace's review! And I have to agree with Vivi that your hair looks so healthy - how do you maintain it?

feeyona said...

that colour looks lovely on you! i've used liese a couple of times too but now my hair is super dry, so i doubt i'll use it again.

i saw an ad for the L'oreal scrublet thing, it looks cute! but kind of gimmicky lol.

Finding the perfect color has to be the hardest thing on the planet... but I do think you managed to find one that works for you. Actually, there were a couple that I particularly liked.

The color you got is very pretty! When I used this product, it was a disaster. It feels like it does not have as much active pigment as it should, and fades away so quickly :(
