So as you can already read in the title.. I dyed my hair!! ♥
I finally decided to dye my hair again after letting it grow out for 1.5 years! I really wanted to have a new look for the new year and I still had an old hair dye from Liese laying around so why not dye my hair with it before it expires haha~
I bought the Liese Bubble Hair Dye in Milk Tea Brown for about 60$hkd when I was in Hong Kong (which is was summer 2014 o.o omg). At first, I was a little hesitant to use it because it's old but I checked the expiration date and it said that this hair dye can be used until 2017 so my hair should be save o.o!
There are many other colours you can chose from but I picked the colour Milk Tea Brown because I wanted to lighten up my hair colour a little!^^
Here's a photo with some other colours they have:
I'm not sure if they have even more colours but they have at least 18 colours to chose from~
Here's a photo of everything that was in the packaging:
Solution 1, solution 2, gloves, a allergy test, an introduction and a conditioner
(not black hair!!). Expect it to look much darker when using it on black virgin hair.
You can see how your final hair color is going to look like with this little colour guide at the back.
Here's the guide and above you could see the caution. Both texts are written in English and Chinese!
All you have to do now is follow the guide step by step!
Don't shake the bottle with the mixed solutions to prevent foaming in the bottle! It's suppose to form bubbles once you squeeze it out and not in the bottle.
Don't forget to wear the gloves in the packaging before starting to spread the foam bubbles onto your hair!
There was plenty of product in the bottle left so I put the rest onto my head hahahah~ Don't forget to spread it evenly onto your head tho haha~!
After that I let the hair dye soak into my hair for about half an hour because I wanted to get out the max effect haha~
You'll have to rinse it with warm water and shampoo and then use the conditioner they included in the packaging.
The conditioner smelled sooo good !! ♥
Here are the before/ after results! It definitely lightened up my hair!! You can't see well on the photo but you can definitely tell in person that my hair got much lighter, it also had a light red tinge to it because I used it on my almost grown out black hair lol
Here's a photo of my hair about 3-4 weeks after I dyed my hair!
It got a littleee lighter and the red tinge disappeared completely yay but it's also more damaged!
Sorry for this ugly sticker but I hate my nose and my mouth these days >.< Something I started getting self-conscious about
My experience:The scent of this hair dye is soooo strong omg. It will make your eyes tear up a little if you don't leave a window open while dyeing your hair! The consistency is like shampoo and therefore easy to use. I noticed while I was laying in bed that night that my scalp burns a little and was really sensitive because the hair dye was that aggressive! There was no stinging or burning throughout the same day though >.<
I think this hair dye is awesome for lightening up your hair to a natural medium to dark brown hair colour but it does dry out your hair a lot and I have some split ends now >.< Nevertheless I think it's alright because you can treat it with some conditioner and it should be fine after a month. I don't think this hair dye is recommended for bleaching your hair blonde or for making a dramatic change though because it doesn't lighten them up that well and it's pretty damaging too (I'm little disappointed because I expected it to look a little lighter).
What I like about it
♥ easy to use
♥ even hair colour result
♥ gloves + conditioner included
♥ pretty colour
♥ wide colour range
What I don't like about it
- smell is really strong
- dries out your hair
- doesn't lighten up your hair that much
Repurchase?: If it's on sale for 60HKD again I would repurchase it in a lighter color but otherwise probably not because the lightening effect isn't that great on black hair.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comment section I will answer them! ♥
------ What's going on in my life at the moment------
I feel so stressed and nervous at the moment because school is ending for me soon. The whole february is filled with exams (3 exams every week *cry* I hope I will do well on them) and I will only have 5 weeks of 'real school' (classes) left. After that I will have about 4 weeks to study for my finals which are in April!
I feel like time is passing by too fast and I can't believe school is finally ending for me soon. I don't even know what it will be like to sleep in for the next couple of months until university starts. I'm also really scared to fail the coming exams and get bad result. Also, I'm scared to lose contact to my friends since I won't see them everyday anymore.
Another thing that makes me sad but shouldn't is that I really don't have any plans for the time between my graduation and first day of university~ All my friends already made plans without me and I feel like a total loser and outcast because of it. While they have already booked their flight tickets to South Korea, Japan,..etc with other people or even send in their application for studying abroad I really didn't plan anything! I will probably stay home for 3 months and eat cookies in bed. I don't have anyone left to ask to go on vacation with me too because, like I said above, all of them already made plans without me.
Thanks for reading ! ♥

omg I really need this, I loved the color just perfect *o*

I haven't used this brand of bubble color. I've used several Korean brands and I like the texture. They didn't dry my hair out that much. I'm sorry that it did that to your hair! Coconut oil will fix that. Mix a little lavender oil with the coconut oil and let it sit overnight in your hair. Your hair will drink up all of the moisture.

I've never used this dye and I think it wouldn't be the best for me since it's so drying.

Liese is always my go to hair dye because it works really well on my hair!!! I'm surprised your hair didn't lighten a lot because mine always turns really brown after I use it \(o_o)/

I've always been curious about Liese hair dyes, they seem user-friendly enough. I still have virgin black hair though so I feel as if once I start dying, it'll be too high maintenance >_< The colour turned out great! Especially 3-4 weeks in, I'm surprised it lightened up that much. Nawh, I know those pre-exam feels.... I was breaking down every now and then in my final year of school. Take it one step at a time and I am 99% sure that your holidays will NOT be spent eating cookies in bed :) Really ~

Wow I really like the lighter colour on you Mindy, and your hair looks so healthy and long! ^-^ I'll be cheering you on for your exams from England, just do your best and it'll be fine! I'm also stuck a little bit alone for the next few months because all my friends are at university lol~ if you ever decide to come to England let me know and we can hang out! <3

First of all I really like your hair colour! I think it gave your hair a nice tone ^^ I totally feel you on the exams. My finals are in May and I'm already really nervous even when there isn't much to be nervous about. And university life, sometimes I feel soooo ready to leave my school but sometimes I wish I could stay here forever (thinking of the screaming kids makes me reconsider this though). But I do have faith that we'll do fine! I wish you the best of luck with your exams and if you ever feel like visiting the Netherlands I'd be happy to show you around :D

Your hair color turned out sooo cute! :) I have always wanted to try Liese because of their pretty colors! :)

The lighter hair looks good on you :/ Unfortunately, it's pretty damaging! Well, every hair dye is damaging lol There is no exception haha
