On our way to Escolta on a Saturday, I asked my good friends if we could stop by at Hidalgo St. in Quiapo to buy my hair staples.
I immediately went to the stack of Sunbright Series but apparently, they don’t have stocks on all the colors I’ve picked… but ate went and suggested another brand with the colors I was looking for. Lo, and behold, the new name on the shelves: Toni&Guy Color Cream.
As you guys would know, I’m refraining from bleaching my hair too often because mine gets brittle easily. So, my hair color before applying these products is green-ish grey (kind of similar to seafoam green) and you might be expecting another result, but in my humble opinion, these type of hair dyes are too strong that the shade color is not considered a factor, as long as it’s light enough to show pigment.
My point is, you don’t have to re-bleach your hair every time you want to change colors, because, aside from it takes another 60+ minutes from your time, it damages the hair more. Fade it out until it’s too light and apply colors above it.
I dyed the upper half of my hair with the blue and waited for 30 minutes before I washed it. I used the leftover dye to quick-wash the lower half of my hair to give it a light shade of Blue.
This is to achieve the Purple color once the Red pigment is applied. Red + Blue = Violet.
I left the Red for 20 minutes and washed with Shampoo & Conditioner. I actually slept in while my hair was (air)drying.
This is one of the color combinations that I’ve never been bored of… in its lifespan. It lasted for about two and half (2.5) weeks with bathes using shampoo every day.
Do you think I should dye my hair again in this color gradient?
