Dye of disappointment

15 Jun

Tangerine hair with hints of golden luster appealed to me since I saw Bree van de Kamp’s (of Desperate Housewives played by Marcia Cross) hair. Since then, every time I dye my hair I’m always dreaming of the same look as hers.


Love the look, minus the evil smirk. Photo from internet.

With numerous brands from the Supermarket, I am always bordering between Loreal, Revlon or Kolours. In all those times that I stress my knees squatting in front of the dye shelves, I lean towards one particular brand and color.

Elusive. Only in Watson's Guada Tulay.

Balinese brown by Kolours… may not be as tangerine but it’s as close as I can get. There are no other commercial products that can come this close. I think I shelled out Php250.00 for one box. I’m that cheap so I color my own hair. The smell of the chemicals is nagging on my nose, but I stayed put and decided to let it stay for a few more minutes bringing down the length of chemical soak for about an hour and a half. Finish product, as always, is not what I had hope for. I’m just thankful that the color spread is even this time. Hahaha.



I have heard from someone that you need to bleach your hair if you want to attain a lighter tone. I might do that after I’ve researched the pros and cons of bleaching. And after I am quite sure that my employment is tolerant of out-of-ordinary hair grooming.

Till then, I’ll just make do with this black-tangerine hue. 😀
