Ulzzang Makeup/Life~: Hair Adventures + Dye Review [Photo Heavy]

1:10 PM

Hi hi friends~ Today, I'm gonna try something new: a hair dye review! :)

I am LOVING my new color! (Plus, I cut off about 6 inches of hair!)
(Side Note: So I know that Garnier isn't a Korean brand, but I thought it fell under the cosmetics side of the blog so you will find this post under the Ulzzang Makeup tab AND the Life~ tab!) 

I've dyed my hair around 4-5 times, with one time being at a professional salon. Having my hair dyed professionally was so nice but it took FOREVER and also took forever to get back to my natural hair color after like a year lol 

My hair grows out ridiculously fast (so my roots would start showing in about a month) so I decided to just go with a box dye so I could continuously keep dyeing my hair and it would be a lot cheaper than heading back to the salon~

I've dyed my hair a variety of browns like chocolate browns, lighter browns, & reddish browns. But ever since I've gotten into Ulzzang fashion and makeup, I have been dying to dye my hair a deep, dark red. The kind of red that looks like a black/brown, but when you go out into the sun has a deep red sheen to it. 

I think that my favorite ulzzang, Kim Shin Yeong, is what made me want to go a deep red in the first place lol
And of course, who could forget my top 3 biases in the k-pop scene who have gone red in the past?
This is f(x)'s Amber in Red Light.
She is my number 1 ultimate bias <3
This is Boyfriend's Kwangmin <3 
I am SO in love with this color on him!
I love these natural red tones he has in his hair.
Super duper handsome <3
And of course, who could forget BAP's Zelo! This has to be my fave picture of him!
I think red looks lovely on him~
Well, after my top 3 k-pop biases have gone some sort of red, I have decided that it is my time to go red/burgundy also! But a very subtle red that you can see in the sun~

Well, here are some shots of the Garnier Nutrisse hair dye box:
My hair is currently a cross between a dark brown & black, so I'm expecting to see the "black hair" results~
This looks like a super pretty color!
I've dyed my hair using box dyes multiple times, and this box dye isn't that different from the rest. 

I think the biggest downside to this box dye was that it was NOT ammonia free so it started smelled really bad like half way into dyeing my hair >-< I started getting a bit dizzy lol I think when dyeing your hair this color, you need to make sure you are wearing a shirt you don't mind getting dirty & a towel you don't mind ruining LOL

Here are some shots of my dyed hair!
-trying to hide my no makeup face- hehe
sort of reminds me of Kwangmin's purple-y color shown in one of the pictures above lol
I actually am surprised by this hair dye! I wasn't expecting the color to be this strong outside. To be honest, I was disappointed when I woke up this morning to find that my hair had gotten darker (I don't like dark hair on me). But when I walked out in the sun I was totally blown away! 

I would repurchase this dye again & would also recommend this dye to girls (and boys) who have traditional Asian black hair, because it actually turned out pretty nicely on me.

All in all, I would probably give this product a 4.5 out of 5!

Let me know what you guys think of my new hair color & thanks for reading!

Until next time,
