And yes, I did color my hair using Etude Bubble Hair Coloring. How did I come up with this brand?
While debating on where to color my hair, either at home or in a salon (us girls really complicate things...). But I've been busy with work for the past year, so it will be more practical to color my hair at home. I have tried known brands for DIY hair colors and some were satisfying but some did not achieve what I wanted. Since I have super black hair, I needed a hair color that would be light enough for it to stand out but won't turn into blond or super bright color.
I got my Etude Bubble Hair Coloring during the Holiday Season. Since it was the time for gift giving, exchange gifts and kris kringle, I decided to have this on my wish list (Thanks Porky Pig!!!, my kirs kringle daddy). I was choosing from the brands that I have used before which proves to be effective with my black hair and suites my taste. But then I came up at the area where Etude House was located. I have known and own some of their products but I failed to notice their Hair Color line until recently. I noticed that Korean Girls have good hair colors which also complement their skin tone. And since I wanted a stronger hair color that would not turn into blond, I felt that Etude Hair Coloring is worth a try.
Etude Bubble Hair Coloring is a shampoo type hair coloring, its bubble foam can give more vivid color than cream type items.
Available in 2 colors. Sweet Orange and Black.
It cost around 370 bucks each.
The set contains:
- 2 hair color potions (I don't know how to call them so I made up my own definition hehe) as the hair coloring
- 1 set of gloves
- 1 plastic apron (other brands don't usually have so I find this cool)
- 1 conditioner
How to use Etude Bubble Hair Color
Pour pink sachet into the pumping container.
*The pink sachet contains a light brownish fluid while the pumping container has clear fluid.
You'll notice when pumping, the color turns into violet with a foamy texture. (Thought bubble: Oh no, what am I getting myself into?? My hair might turn into violet.)
Step 3: Apply onto the hair, from the roots to tips.
Foam that has stained my hand turns into orange. (Still having thought bubbles: Have they mix matched the fluids? But still continues to apply onto my hair)
Step 4: Leave on for 30 minutes.
(Still having thought bubble: hhhmmmm my hair seems still black, will it turn to orange or violet?? oh my)
You will see orange like color that will flow along with the water while rinsing.
(Continue with thought bubble: Oh no, it might not work)
And after drying my hair, the result was..........
It was a success! I liked it! The color enhances as the days pass by.
