It’s been roughly 6 months since I’ve dyed my hair so I decided to dye it again!
I’ve always wanted to try using Prettia’s foam dye, so I bought the Jewel Peach colour for US$14 from Adambeauty. Their site may be a bit confusing to browse but I like them because their EMS rate isn’t too bad. They also have really fast service! I bought and paid for my order on the 28th of June and received my package on the 4th of July.
Jewel Peach is the brightest dye in Prettia’s pink/red range and they rated it 4 stars for brightness. I like their box since it shows a lot of pictures with labels. Simple and straight to the point! :peace
These are the items you get in the box:
- A sachet with the gloves and instruction sheet
- “After Colour Hair Pack” (Please note this is the washing out type)
- Bottle with the hair dye activator
- Bottle with hair dye colour
- Bottle pump
So basically you pour bottle 1 into bottle 2 and tilt the bottle upright and upside down (not shake!) a few times. I did it until the bottle became full of foam. Then you attach the bottle foam and squeeze the bottle to get the foam out
At first I got worried because the mixture came out liquidly but after around 3 pumps, it was came out foamy. The smell of the dye isn’t too bad. It’s not as strong as Beautylabo’s foam dye but you can see smell it. Make sure you dye your hair in a well ventilated area!
Apply the foam to you hair and begin the wait! They recommend you to leave the foam in for 20~30mins. I left it in for 25mins since the scalp started to feel a bit tingly.
After that I washed out the dye and applied the conditioner they provided. It smells pretty nice and made my hair smooth
And these are my results! I can’t really tell if I dyed my hair evenly because I think the colour looks different depending where the light is The colour is really bright under direct light and I think my hair looks dark brown with a red tone? in normal lighting It’s not as bright on the box but I think it’ll probably lighten up after a few washes.
Otherwise I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I knew that I wouldn’t get a bright result (in room lighting) since my hair was black at the start. I think I’ll have to wait for a week or 2 to fully judge it, but I like the way it is atm
I’ll post an update in around 2 weeks time :bow2
