After reading the review of Revlon Colorsilk of herroyalbleakness (with the gorgeously colored hair I've always wanted), I went to Watsons on the exact same day to buy a bottle of the exact same product.
See, I've never had the opportunity to sport colored hair (and I've been dying to!). I've used 3-4 boxes years ago of Garnier / Revlon / L'Oreal hair dyes (always with a medium tinge) but they would never work on me. See, stylists have always commented that my hair is just too black. So... the genius in me figured that if I use Revlon Colorsilk Beautiful Color in 50 Light Ash Brown, I'd end up with a medium or a dark brown tint. Good enough for me.
My hair condition? Since I chopped off 2/3 of my original length, my hair is totally unprocessed, color-wise. I just have around 4-5 inches of regrowth since my rebonding session last June at Affascinante Salon.
I followed all the instructions, except that I left the product on for an hour until I felt my scalp get itchy, because I know just how stubborn my natural hair color is!
Post-color result? Still Black. With a slight sheen of brown!
Oh no! And I'm wearing a nanay housedress too!
Girls, what should I do next? Should I wait for December (when I get my regrowth rebonded again) to get a boost of color from Affascinante Salon? Do I go to a very good (ack expensive!) salon to solve this problem?
Please, I just want color but without bleaching my hair dead.
But I also want it... Now (Brat mode)!!!
