To clarify.. When I mean without bleaching, I mean without having to bleach your hair first and then having to dye your hair a brown colour. So this basically skips the bleaching step. Therefore it is without bleaching.
in this video im just showing you how i dyed my black hair brown!
i have finally found the right dye to do this, i have brought so many dyes before and done a strand test on my hair and it would always turn out as black still.
before you dye your hair it is recommended that you do a patch test 48 hours before you dye your hair
the dye: L'Oreal Paris recital preference - 10.1 Helsinki very light ash blonde
this good thing bout ash dyes, they don't have any orange or red tones to it so at the end result i know that my hair will not turn ginger!
the box dye contains:
- the colorant gel
-high shine conditioner
-high shine elixir
-before you dye your hair you need to wear a shirt which you don't mind getting dirty because the dye will stain your clothing!
- it is also helpful if you dye your hair with unwashed greasy hair because this helps the dye stick on better
- a week before dying your hair, use a deep conditioner: this will help prep your hair with the damage of the dye
- it is important that when you are dying your hair that you don't have any product residue on it (e.g. hairspray/mouse): the product residue will act as a dye barrier and it will not dye those parts of your hair with the product on it, this will leave your hair patchy!
-on your hair line: put Vaseline (petroleum jelly) on it because this is the part of your skin where the dye is easily stainable and the Vaseline is waterproof which helps the dye come off easier
-don't wear any jewellery as the dye will damage it
1. mix the colourant gel and the developer creme and the high shine elixir together
2. section out hair so that it is easier for you to distribute the product evenly
3.add dye to hair starting from the roots
this to the rest of your hair
5.add the leftover dye to your hair and massage it thoroughly
6.wrap a plastic bag or a shower cap around your hair and wait for the recommended 30 minutes
wrapping/covering your hair with a plastic bag will trap the heat from your head as dye works best with heat, also it also helps the dye from not drying out. once the dye is dried out the dying process stops working
Was my hair virgin black?
my natural hair colour is black. the hair colour you see in the start of the video is my natural hair colour. however months before this video i tried dying my hair with a brown dye and nothing happened. there was no colour change at all. so technically my hair in this video is not 100% virgin black. But since that was months before filming this video, my roots are virgin black hair.
Is the dye permanent?
Yes! but i have seen fading in the colour.
How many boxes did you use?
i used 2 boxes, but i didn't use all of the dye in the second bottle.
How long does it last?
It's permenant, but it does fade. i cant remember when i started to see fading but if you wish to see the process of my hair colour you can see the videos that i did after this video which shows you my hair colour and the way its faded.
i have not changed my hair colour till today so you can even see my latest video and see what the hair colour looks now, but you will also see my roots growing out as well.. ahhhhh
You look like mulan
(AHAHAHAH) i know.
thanks for watching!
