So last week, I dyed my hair for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE! Wooo. I wouldn't exactly say that I had been contemplating for a while... but maybe off and on several times throughout Senior year. Anyway, my main concern was my fear of the damage it would cause to my hair.. since I already got it straightened this winter. Anyway, my cousin brought this Japanese brand of hairdye from Taiwan last week and I decided to give it a try. Having seen my roomates dye their hair before, I knew that probably the most time consuming and messy process is the application process. Luckily Prettia was known for their foam application. I had looked online for some application tips and found this to be helpful:
Anyway, after rinsing it out of my hear, I used the color treatment packet that it came with (which barely covers 1/4 of your hair) rinsed it out and took a look. The color was definitely reddish the first night after dying (but it has faded to a browner color as you will see in the pictures below) And I noticed my hair texture became a bit rougher. I did noticed more hair loss than usual that first wash (but not anymore in following washes) This was expected however with any sort of dye application. Anyway, it's been about a week, and this is what I look like now:
|not too noticeable in home lighting actually|
The foam application made the color distributing surprisingly even. No clothing was ruined in teh process... and I basically just wore a tank top the whole time. The chemicals didn't even hurt my scalp at all. no tingle, nothin. :) I probably won't dye my hair again because it was one of those things where I just wanted to try once and get my curiosity over with... but if I did want to in the future, I would definitely use Prettia again. 5/5 stars.
|I think it somewhat made my skin look even darker.|
