Hair Chronicles: Hair Update + Blue Grey Tip

It has been months since I posted an update or anything on this blog! The thing is… priorities smacks me in the face. Every. Day. I currently have responsibilities on a certain non-profit organization in line with my career, and at the same time, I’m enrolled at a review center in preparation for the licensure exams next year. 
But guess what I haven’t lost time to deal with? Hair color!

However, no, not really. As you would see on the following photos below, I have almost 5″ long roots. I’ve been busy that long and I did not have the luxury to dye my hair. The very last time before this post would be 2.5 months ago, during the Master Plumbers’ Oathtaking, in which I just covered my hair with Enchanted Forest, without bleaching my (already showing) roots.

Bleached once (which turned out to be uneven/pictured below) and topped with a layer of Bremod hair color tube in Blue mixed with a generous amount of white conditioner. That mix gave me a silver-y blue.

3-4 days after application, daily washing.

I’ll let you in the not-so-secret tip; bleaching a jet black hair would give you a golden brown kind of color, if not bright yellow-orange — then, given that you’ve been taught Primary colors since Pre-school, you should know that yellow + blue would give you green. And digging more into the color wheel, violet neutralizes yellow.

From my experience, overtly neutralizing yellows gives you Silver. Hence, – you do the math.

1.5 – 2 weeks after application, toned roots, hair color back to washed up teal.

  1. Hi! 🙂 I found your blog by scouring the internet for reviews on the brand Bremod. I’m actually looking a cheap brand which I can use to color my hair. I’m getting someone to bleach my hair for me in a few weeks cuz I heard that part’s better left to experts (or at least those who know what they’re doing). I saw in some posts that you also bought some hair color tubes in Quiapo… What cheap brand do you recommend I try? Where can I find them?

    Are Epsa and Bremod brands you’ll recommend? 🙂

    I hope you’ll reply. 🙂 Thank you! 🙂

    • Hi Dorothy, try Bremod. It’s always better to ask for help in working for your hair. I bought the cheap tubes at Hidalgo St., Quiapo.

    Hi! Love the greyish blue color. I’ve been wanting to do this color for a long time. Anyway, I would just like to ask if you added developer to the dye? Or just the white conditioner? Thank you so much! ❤

    • Hi Ysaii, sorry I just got into the remaining comments just now. Hope you’re still there! The one I used here needs developer to process (to “develop”). Vegetable dyes like Manic Panic, Sparks or Arctic Fox does not need developers and is healthy for your hair!

    Hi I’ll just ask and I hope you reply. I bleached my hair once and I want to achieve that color which looks ashyy. You said that you used bremod blue what is the percent of the oxidizer that you used? I was hoping to have that same color. I need to just buy a blue bremod right? Thankyouu

    • Hi SJ, sorry I just got back into WordPress and trying to get into every pending comments. Hope you’re still there! I used a 9% (30 vol.) oxidizer/developer. You can go down to 6% or even 3% because you just need to oxidize “activate” the dye. The lower the percentage, the less damaging it is to your hair.

      If you want the exact same color I had here, dilute it with white conditioner. And don’t make the dye soak in for more than 10 minutes after applying it.

      Good luck! I hope you could share your experience here.

    Hi, I want to dye my hair a blue black color. Is Bremod blue dark enough to do the job? 😟 I’d also bleach my hair twice.

    • Hi Allie, this type of dye (bremod hair dye tubes) comes out as dark blue only. Not to the point of Blue Black, at least in my eyes. Especially that your hair has been bleached it may come out as Blue Green rather than blue black. I suggest you get the box dyes you can see on groceries or drugstores because some has a shade in “Blue Black.” I tried it once, from Loréal, it is generally black but a vibrant blue once touched by the sun.
