Color on color: Trying out L'Oreal Paris Colorista Balayage (Highlights)

Sunday, May 27, 2018

Hey girl!

I've never been so spontaneous as I am now in coloring and experimenting with my hair. It feels good. I have posted HERE that I had my new hair color few months back. And unexpectly, my aunt brought me this Balayage from L'Oreal Paris. It is unusual to find this variant in local drugstores here in PH. So out of my curiousity and excitement, I jump into coloring my hair again. 

I have to research on some facts and reviews before I start this coloring process. 

What is Balayage?
Based on what I have read on The Sydney Morning Herald by Kathleen Lee Joe, Balayage is like the modern way highlighting technique which creates a more random, casual results compared to the foil-technique of highlighting which forms a uniformed highlights. Balayage comes from a French word means "to sweep".

Here's how to get that Balayage look!

What's inside the box of L'Oreal Paris Colorista DIY Balayage kit?

                                                                 1: Lightening Powder
                                                                 2: Developer Creme
                                                                 3: Lightening Creme
                                                                 4: Conditioning Shampoo

The set is a little different than the usual hair coloring kit from Loreal that I used. It also include 2 important tools: Gloves and the comb applicator. As per experience, you have to use it right away after mixing because it will spill out. (That's what happened to me! Hassle)


It was harder than I thought. There's a high tendency that the color could mixed up on the entire hair when you do it unevenly layer by layer. It looks easier than done. Haha! I have to get help from other people to color my hair. Well, I realized it is not a DI anymore, but more of just coloring at home. It is harder and cheaper at the same time. 


As expected, uneven,patchy  results but not too bad. The highlights looks orangy brass on my brown hair (as always). I didn't regret. It was not perfect, but not too bad. So-so! If you want a good expected results, it will be better to go to your hairdresser.

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
