The best kind of hair makeover.

Sponsored post

There are a lot of things that the boy doesn’t see eye-to-eye with me on fashion. He prefers girls to dress simple (tee and jeans, pfft), light or no make-up, sneakers instead of heels etc. In fact, one of the things that he has always been trying to convince me to do is to go back to my virgin jet-black hair… Which is a big NO-NO for me! :O

I started dyeing my hair after I came back from Melbourne about 6 years ago, and I have never looked back since. I have tried reds, browns, dark blondes, and I have enjoyed every single hair color. Having jet black hair can look too jarring on our complexions, and I personally find that dyed hair softens our features (and thus enhances make-up), and also go so much better with outfits! In fact, after I started dying my hair, I always get comments that I look Japanese/ Korean. *syok sendiri*

I picked up a tip from my hairstylist friend, Yen, sometime ago—when it’s early in the year, it’s best to go for lighter hair shades, as it will go well with all the Spring/ Summer trends which usually involve pastels, bright colors, prints. In the second half of the year, it’s good to opt for darker hair colors, as Autumn/ Winter trends are usually deep and dark colors. I see so much sense in this theory! Just imagine, light brown hair looks so nice with a pastel pink outfit right? But light brown hair will look quite funny with a deep plum hue outfit. A dark brown or dark brown-red hair color will suit the outfit much more.

Another example of how hair colors can transform your whole image…

Recently I dyed my hair a deep reddish brown for my wedding. The reason is, the red undertones will actually make me look fairer in wedding photos (although I am actually quite tanned FML)! And it’s true, I got so many praises for my hair at my wedding! :D

It just goes to show that by switching up your hair colors, you can actually change the way you look. :D

For a quick hair color fix especially on those pesky black roots, I am really happy to come across Liese Blaune Treatment Hair Color!

I have known about Liese (pronounced as lee-say) products a long long time ago, and I was sold on the brand when I heard that it is the No.1 hair colouring brand in Japan . Its hair products are specifically made for Asian hair,and it really helps that they always use Asian models, so I know how the color will look like on my skintone. Also, Liese products are all about healthy hair, which is a big plus point, because most hair dyes will actually spoil your hair. T_T

Liese Blaune is a new product by Liese, which works as a Treatment Cream Color! It contains more than 60% Treatment Base that coats the hair for a nourishing treatment during the coloring process. The 3 hair care ingredients are gloss retention extract, royal jelly extract and seaweed. I feel like they sound super nutritious for the hair LOL. Also, its High Penetration Coloring Technology means a shorter leave-on time, i.e. just a mere 15 minutes! But yet, the result is an even, intense-color that is long-lasting hence gives a fresher and younger finish look. :)

What is most impressive to me is that Liese Blaune offers perfect grey coverage! I have spotted the 1 or 2 loose strands of white/ grey hair on my scalp, much to my sisters’ amusement... T____T

Rocky also is very captivated by Liese Blaune, haha.

My mom goes for regular dye jobs, but she has been complaining that she has some stubborn grey hair that just could not be covered-up by hair dye. So I recommended for her to try out Liese Blaune!

Her grey hair is at the beginning of the scalp near the forehead, hence it could be quite unsightly. Luckily for us that Liese Blaune is really easy to use...

Just squeeze equal amounts of Tube 1 and Tube 2 that are included in the box.

Mix it thoroughly... The thick cream means that no mess will be created, and also makes for easier application.

Put on the plastic gloves in the box, and start applying on your hair! (Tip: you can apply more on the areas with grey hair)

Leave it on for 15 minutes, and voila! Shiny, new hair color. :D

If you have any leftover cream after you are done, you can actually keep it for future touch-ups! Can save a lot of money like that! :O
