So anyway, I figured I'd try out the Feria Absolute Platinum (since all the other bleaches looked waaay to complicated), bleach my hair and then pick a really rich red and dip dye the rest of my hair for an interesting look. And so began the single worst experience I have ever had with hair colour, and that brings us to this review:
Next I had to empty the powder from a large, flat packet into the bottle. I think the people at L'Oreal should consider spending an extra couple of cents per package and including a funnel. Even while being extremely careful, trying to get powder from a packet to flow into a small hole while wearing gloves is near impossible to do without spillage. There's a lot of powder, too. Seemed like a never ending stream...
I left it on for an hour and then went to go rinse it out. I did not put the gloves back on as per warnings and direction because I figured if it was really that bad, my hands were going to be the least of my problems. I was rinsing it out in the shower, and this stuff was going to be running all down my back and bum, and although I checked the box, there was no rubber suit included. Thankfully, there was no burning sensation at all, which makes me wonder what was up with all the fear-mongering about the conditioner. Maybe it mutated my DNA? But it's touching my scalp, so any way I look at it, the warnings to wear gloves while rinsing are kinda dumb.
After my hair came out of the towel, I inspected the colour. True to it's packaging, it did come out a beautiful shade of blonde. However, I am used to my hair feeling really soft after using hair colouring conditioners (I have no idea what they use, but it's awesome), and that was not the case this time. It was coarse and tangled. And in case you're wondering, I have bleached my hair before, and it was soft after conditioning. Thankfully I have that fantastic Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Creme. A little dab set thing right.
