Due to COVID-19, I am unable to cut and color my hair before the Chinese New Year. In the past few years, I always get my hair done to usher the new year. The most important is to cover my grey hair as it has grown out of control since I gave birth to my first child.
Three days before CNY, I decided to head to the nearest pharmacy and grab any hair colour that is available. I don’t know which brand and color is better because I have never DIY myself. All this while, the hair salon will mix the colour for me.
The one that caught my attention is “Revlon Top Speed Hair Colour” because it is stated in the box that it can color grey hair in 5minutes. This is what I need because my target is to cover grey hair and it just needs 5minutes. Perfect for a busy mom like me.
Seems like it is very easy to use as there are only 3 steps stated on the box.
Step 1: Put on gloves. Squeeze cream from both tubes on haircolour comb.
Step 2: Comb through hair to ensure even distribution.
Step 3: When the desired color is reached per application instruction, rinse with water and apply post treatment conditioner.
There are total 6 items in the box.
- 1 Tube Colorant (Tube 1 – Red
- 1 Tube Developer (Tube 2 -White)
- 1 After-Color Conditioner
- 1 Haircolor Comb
- 1 Retouching Brush
- 1 Pair of Gloves
- 1 Application Instruction
Everything is already provided in the box. I don’t need to prepare anything else.
One thing to be cautious is the 1 pair of gloves is secretly hiding inside the instruction leaflet. You might not notice it and thought the gloves were left out.
Because I have thick hair and intend to colour all my hair, I took about 30minutes to apply almost all the hair colorant and developer. Then, I waited for 5 minutes and rinse my hair and apply the hair conditioner. I choose dark brown but I get black color. Maybe I used too much time and the color turn darker and darker. Anyway, I am okay with black color too.
I buy Revlon Top Speed Hair Colour (Dark Brown) at RM32.90 from Watson. Buy here.
Permanent hair color, ammonia free with mother of pearl and ginseng root extract for shiny and resilient hair.
