I’ve alway had black hair. There were few times I had my hair colored because I felt like I needed a makeover. Eventually, it does get tiring to have it retouched every now and then, not to mention the color for some reason always end up looking the same, lakas maka-kalawang (rust) look.
The last time I had my hair color was about 8 months after I gave birth to lil’ Ms. GJG. I wanted a brunette look but ended up sporting a bright orange hair! Eeeep. Since then, I switched back to dark brown. Now that I’m bored again with my hair color, I decided to have a make over. Perfect timing when L’Oreal invited me for a hair color makeover using their Matrix line.
Here’s my hair before I had it colored. It’s dull, it’s dark and it’s boring heehee.
Eenie meenie minie moo, what color should I choose?
I want nga sana red but then again I want a pretty dark brown color, like a brunette with a hint of gold.
So I choose from their Wonderbrown range. With all the options, I asked L’Oreal color experts to help me choose. And after an hour or so, here’s the finished product.
Love that it’s a subtle color. Brunette levelz achieved!
With my colorist, Ervin. Thank you for taking good care of my hair! Lav ett!
With my hair color date Eliza of Painter’s Wife. She opted for a red brown hair color.
Here’s how my hair color looks like under a fluorescent light. Can you see red brown?
And here’s how my hair looks like on natural light. I love it! Not too blonde which is perfect for my warm skin tone. The colors used on my hair are: So Color Neutral (12N) and Wonderbrown Neutral (7N). With a new hair color, I also got anew hair product to try.
Thank you L’Oreal for my Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil.
Here’s my damp hair. On regular days (even sometimes when I’m out and about) this is how my hair looks. It’s a bit frizzy and tends to look dry even though it’s not really dry. The weather here in Manila doesn’t help as my hair tend to go berserk and really looks like I had a bad hair day. So I tried the Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil. I started with two pumps, that’s generates about a size of a ten peso coin, which can cover the left side part of my hair. I just spread flatly first from the roots down to the ends of my hair and managed to massage what’s left on my scalp.
After applying it on my hair, here’s how it looks. Do you see the difference? Mane tamed. 😉
I like the Matrix Biolage Exquisite Oil because it really helps moms-on-the-go or women who really have no time fixing their hair. It blends well even on damp hair and can also be a great product to put before you blow dry or iron your hair. But I wish the consistency was a bit more thick since it similarly feels like that of a baby oil, which tends to leave traces on your hands. For a suggested retail price of 835 php per 92 ml, it’s a convenient product for us women who want to protect and tame our hair everyday. It’s available in salons nationwide including Famous (F&H) Salons & David’s Salons.
Thank you Also L’Oreal for my Matrix Biolage Color Care set. Love trying new hair care products, so giddy! 😉
