I edit it a bit? :P Rather, make a thread for any change in your hair.

Style, Color, Treatments, or even give tips..etc. :)

Oh this is an interesting topic for a thread  :) I'll be the first to reply then.


WORTH IT?: YES, I love it.

Salon Adress: Corinthian Hills Clubhouse, Temple Drive, Pasig.

Natural Hair type: Fine, Straight, Long, Black

Hair History: dyed 2 times from black: Dark Brown then Light Brown.

Hair color Before: Dark Brown: http://www.flickr.com/photos/44221652@N04/4684453373/

Hair color After: Light Brown : http://www.flickr.com/photos/44221652@N04/4430583891/in/photostream/

Bleach?: Nope

Hair Dye: Hortaleza 8.2 (i think?) Light Havana shade & Oxidizing Lotion 12%

Price: At first I tried at the salon, I forgot how much it cost, I think it was around p3,200? But the at home hair dye? Less than p200! :D Not including the materials I bought like brush, tinting bowl and gloves but those were pretty cheap too. All in all less than p1000.

Changes:

- Damage? None
- Texture change? A bit thicker, but that's a good thing to me because I had very thin hair.

Description: I tried at the salon first cause coloring hair for the first time, it's pretty scary  ;D but the more I got my hair retouched, I started talking to the colorist about, how to do this and that, and the 'science of hair coloring' and tried it at home.

Comments: The only thing I don't like about having a light hair color is sometimes it'll look a bit ginger rather than light brown :|

That's the same color as my light brown hair :) it just looks darker because of the lighting and the camera being used doesn't absorb a lot of light :P

The process was pretty simple, I used Hortaleza Hair Dye Cream in 8.2, I'm not sure about the number but the name of the cream is "Light Havana" when you look at the swatch at HBC it's blonde but have no fear :) blonde dye on black hair becomes brown. Then I used a developer LVL 40 12%, I forgot the brand I got, I got it in HBC Greenhills because I was planning to get Hortaleza Oxidizing Lotion 12% but they gave me a different brand (its in a tall white bottle) that said LVL 40 12% because they were out of the Hortaleza brand. But as long as it's 12%, you're good.

Then mix the developer and hair dye together (MUST be the same ratio) till it becomes a paste or at least when there's no more lumps. then apply it evenly on your hair and leave it in for 45 mins then rinse.

Although I suggest you do a strand test first, like mix a little bit of the dye and developer together and dye a strand (a little chunk) and dye that chunk and wait 45 mins then rinse it, it'll change color and if you like the color you see, then continue on with your whole head :)

VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER: DO NOT shampoo your hair before dying, wait around 2 days without washing your hair before dying it because the grease will help the color stick to your hair, and if you shampoo before dying (trust me, from experience) your head will feel like it's on FIRE, then after you wash it out, you'll end up with scabs on your scalp, and when the scabs come off, they'll look like dandruff.

In  professional coloring, stylists actually shampoo client's hair PRIOR to coloring. The reason for this is to  cleanse the hair  and remove build-ups and residues. Those nasty residues are the least thing you want before any chemical process, elsewhere it becomes a sort of barrier making it hard for the chemical to get through the hair's cortex. the same holds true for other processes (ie rebond, perm, highlights)

When applying hair dye, never apply directly to the scalp (unless you are doing a color retouch). Leave at least .5 or 1 inch. When you are done applying on midlengths to ends, process for 10-15 minutes, then that's the time to apply remaining mixture on the roots. process till the max development time, as stated.

If the label says the max development time is 30 minutes, you can extend to another 5 minutes but never beyond that. Otherwise you'll be damaging the hair from all its ammonia and resorcinol content.

Wow, Thank you :D So, not washing hair for 2 days before dyeing hair was just a myth? And, Do you think the kolours that i bought will show up / twing naiilawan lang? :)

I'd rather not shampoo before hair coloring :) It really did burn my scalp since my stylist applies it directly on.

not really a myth. i think that protocol was created because it is targeted for nonprofessional consumers.  the rationale for that is, the oils that will be accumulated in your scalp for 2 days will somehow make it less irritating when the chemicals touch it.  lowdown is, oils also accumulate in the hair itself, not just the scalp. so it is somehow a barrier to the penetration of chemicals.  that's why drugstore brands are designed to be HARSHER than the professional  brands, for these to defy all the oils and residues. 

anyway, what's most important is to know the proper way of applying the colorant.  and at the end of the day malalaman mo kung magaling ka magapply if even ang results.  sino ba ang magkakagsuto sa hair color na hindi pantay at patche patche na parang pang doggy? yuck LOL

Edi better di magwash ng hair if drugstore hair dye yung gamit? And, tips naman para even yung pagkalagay ng dye? Salamat :)

regardless if it's a drugstore brand,  apply it the professional way to ensure even results.  make sure you slice hair into thin partitions so that every strand will be thoroughly and uniformly covered.
