A Piece of Hairloom

My journey on how I got green hair.

I've been itching to get my hair dyed for the past few months cause I was so sick of having brown/red/reddish brown/brownish red/fifty shades of brown hair. Plus I saw this photo of a girl with the most gorgeous ashy green hair on Tumblr (yes I'm active on Tumblr, go follow me now!) and I decided that I wanted to try something like that soon. A couple weeks later at the Underground Market Flea, my primary school friend Kerrie came down, we chatted for quite a bit and she told me about her doing marketing for Hairloom. She asked if I was interested if they were to sponsor me and BOOM, here I am with green hair.

Well, not immediately! I went to the salon last Tuesday to get my hair done and it took around 4-5hours which is really fast (I think). I was hesitant at first cause it was my first time doing such a colour but Peter (senior stylist at Hairloom) assured me that it wasn't going to be overly loud and he continued to explain how he was going to do my hair using technical terms which I can't remember. Really glad that he did my hair cause he understood what I wanted but he changed it up a bit as well so that it would suit me better.

Okay enough yakking. Photos time! Many thanks to Kerrie, came down specially to help me take photos!
To sum up the whole process, lightened my hair once ($100), had the hair on the crown of my head dyed ash brown and the rest green ($280), layered and cut my fringe ($45). So if I had to pay for it, it would be $425 in total.

But but! The products they used were really awesome, my hair dye was from the Goldwell Elumen GN@ALL, it doesn't make your hair all frizzy and dry. I understand cause my hair gets really dry and tangles easily after DIY dye. My hair condition is still great after 7 washes! Though some of the colour dropped at my hair ends, it's because the hair ends aren't as healthy as the hair near your roots so the colour won't stay as long.

According to colour/bleach experts *coughs*Lenne Arissa Pia*coughs*, colours usually fade within a week or two but I have to say my green is still at pretty good shape. Though it's not as vibrant, it didn't fade to a yucky colour. As you can see from the photos, it's a very subtle ash green which suits me very well me thinks, the colour shows more when there's more light. I LOVE IT SO MUCH! ;_;

There will be a special promotion for my readers soon so keep your eyes peeled for that!
