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.
