My Hair..Aghh MY HAIR!!

I dyed my hair today.  First with Liese Prettia-High bleach and then after with Palty-Milk Tea Brown.

So it turns out I screwed up my turned out like a gradient effect in which I have brown hair at my roots and then dark brown/black on my ends. At least it looks like I could have done this look on's gradual fading into a darker colour.

 I will wait one week and decide if I want to bleach my hair completely and then re-dye it some sort of blonde.  I want to be blonde!

I looked at my hair again and I feel it's it just me?  When I tie up my hair it looks normal..LOL that is because you cant see the brown/black...I tried to pull my hair into a bun..the asian bun where the bun is on top of the head and it looks so weird!  My bun is brown/black and the other part is light brown..  -___-  It looks so fake!

I know what happened though....this happened because I had previously dyed my hair black several months back and the new dye is not penetrating through the black dye.  I must bleach....OH and Prettia-High bleach is not a real bleach...LOL it is just called "high-bleach"

Review: Liese Prettia-High Bleach
Definitely works on natural Asian black hair. The outcome is not super far off from the box and the smell isn't bad at all.  I take back what I previously said about it being smelly in comparison to Palty.  Palty definitely smells worse.  My hair still feels soft after dyeing with this brand.  I choose this brand over Palty.  I didnt like the foam aspect of this product, I wasn't use to slathering foam into my hair...there was no comb or thingy to put it in my hair.  I also didnt know how much to slather on because the texture is very unfamiliar to me in regards to it being a hair dye.  Was I suppose to rub it in like shampoo?
Rating: 4.5/5 (Good buy)
Pros: smells pleasant, not very damaging, colour payoff is similar to box
Cons: pricey for DIY hair dye ($16CAD +), the foam is weird, limited colour options

Review: Palty- Milk Tea Brown
I think the colour payoff is again very similar to the box.  The smell is a little stronger than the Prettia brand.  There are LOTS of colours to choose from and it is cheaper than Prettia BUT still costs more than American hair dyes.  I like the fact that this is creme and that it is looks white when you coat your head thus I knew where and how much I was putting on my head.  The comb attachment was helpful too as I used that to comb it through my hair.
Rating: 4.5/5 (Good buy)
Pros: smells okay(better than American brands), not very damaging, colour payoff similar to box, inexpensive for the colour payoff, the comb attachment
Cons:  the smell is not as good as Prettia

Picture time!
