Product Review: Liese Bubble Hair Color in Sweet Pink



At a Glance:

Website: Kao.com
Weight: Hair Color: 40ml, Developer: 60ml, Hair Lotion: 4g
Made in: Japan
Likes: Lovely color, fun and super easy to use, easily available! :)
Gripes: Super strong ammonia smell, dries out hair a little, doesn't really cover darker hair "regrowth", result can be patchy if not worked into hair evenly, color fades quickly.
Repurchase: No
Jenn's Rating: 2.5 Stars! Just alright.


Ingredients:



Product Description:

Bubble Hair Color for evenly colored hair.


Instructions:



Actual Product Pic:



Texture & Scent:


This hair dye is really interesting - it's actually FOAM! :D Do make sure to comb it through your hair though for an even finish. I followed the instruction to RUB the foam into my hair blindly - and end up with patchy parts! >.<

This hair dye really REEKS of ammonia. Do use this in a well ventilated place!




The lotion that comes with this hair dye is rather runny - so it spreads easily into your hair.



It's quite useless thought IMHO - didn't do a thing for my hair! >.<

Packaging:


This hair dye comes in the usual box! :) The stuff you get with every box:


From left: Hair lotion, packet containing a patch test, more instruction and caution leaflets and a pair of gloves, the color solution, the developer solution as well as the pump! :)

Price & Availability:
This hair dye is sold for RM37.80 and is available at Watsons and Guardian outlets! :)


My $0.02:

I got too irked by my dark roots (they should be called a BOB by now! lol!), so i set out to get myself a box of hair dye to actually stop myself from impulsively stepping into a hair salon and spending unnecessary moolah to touch up my hair color, since its like a "tradition" for me to spot a new hairdo (which includes a new shade for my tresses) for the new year and the new year is just barely 2 months away!

I havent DIYed in years - almost 8 years to be exact! Ever since i found the convinience of having my hair professionally colored, i never felt the need to purchase another box of hair dye - until now because I spent too much on the MAC Fab Felines and Venomous Villians collections which left me penniless but happy.

I don't know what possessed me to buy this since I've always been a Loreal hair color user back then (and this brand have served me well)! Maybe I was amused by the shade description - Sweet Pink (which you'll see later, is clearly NOT pink - thank God!)! :S

Making a foaming hair dye is a great idea IMHO! It's mighty fun and it makes this brand stand out from the usual liquid dyes. However, the novelty ends there for me. The moment i squeeze my first pump of maroon colored foam out of the bottle, I almost passed out from the strong pungent scent of ammonia! >.<

Ok enough blabbing! Here's a side by side comparison for you too see (left is my old hair color):



As you can see, its a lovely shade of reddish brown, but it didn't really cover my regrowth (might be my own problem though - maybe my old hair color is too light compared to my natural hair color). Seek and ye shall find the patchy patches too! >.< And oh, see how dry my hair is?? T_T

Its been about a month now since i colored my hair with this product. So to answer your question - yes, the color does fade about two weeks after. It's a rusty shade of brown now!

It's a shame that this hair dye dries out my hair, because I really happen to like this shade despite its atrocious name. I'll most probably not repurchase this one because of this (and partly due to the strong ammonia scent)!

  11. hey jenn, i recently used liese in the exact shade.and it looks awesome! the way i prevented the dry hair was by using the color care shampoo and conditioner by clairol after dyeing, and two days in a row after that. my hair is still as soft as ever. and i love this product...the best hair DIY ever.. they should expand their range of colours though.
