During my stay in Hong Kong. Hair-dyes were something I was attracted to. Do they really work better on asian hair? better colour? better staying power?
Over the course of 2 weeks, I had accumulated a number of hair colours. Kao Liese bubble dye, Gatsby, Dariya Palty and this one.... All the shade I picked were pretty similar, a ashy light brown/dark blonde colour.
I found this BLYTHE dye at Bourjois, I admit, initially I was attracted to this, purely because of the doll. It was around $48 hong kong dollars which works out to be around just under £4? Much cheaper than the ebay prices right?
Here is the content of the box.....
This dye is a foam formulation, perfect for hair dye virgins or people with long hair like me, It ensures you can coat each strand just by massaging the foam into your hair.
Here is my hair before the dye, as you can see, my previous dye has slowly washed away leaving a tint or orange behind, which is common within asian hair.
Once the mixture is mixed up, foam is generously created. and my gosh, there is alot of it!
Once the head is covered the foam is still noticeable, but after a couple of minutes, the foam settles and becomes non existent, just like styling mousse.
So after 30mins and a freshly washed mane after, this was the result. The dye has quite noticeably made my hair more ashy...
Overall: I do Love the foam formula, It really is fool proof! I hope other dye companies will take notice of the advantages a foam gives and maybe convert? Regarding the colour, I do like it, but it isn't anything special. I can achieve this colour with a standard dye from my local drugstore.
So are asian hair dyes better? hmm I wouldn't say so, maybe their packaging and colours are suited more to the asians but when it comes to performance, I see no difference. Well, this one anyways.... ^^
