If you have been lurking around this blog, reading some of my posts, you would know that I’m a fond of drugstore hair essentials. Cheap — But of course, reasonable quality and effectiveness.
I’ve been buying HairFix coloring Shampoos since it popped out the shelves (similar to the packaging of GlamWorks hair coloring shampoo, and they are always on display side-by-side) using color: Black. You know, “in case of emergency” from the (1) college’s hair color policy to (2) bleaching-gone-wrong.
So what’s up with this:
Platinum Blond? Whoa. First thing that came into mind was: blond for less than a hundred in one sachet(?!), I was thinking of all-in-one-bleach-in-a-sachet. Boy, I was wrong.
I got my eyes on it since late last year when I first saw it. Never got the chance to buy it (I don’t even have time to sleep, much less change the color of my hair) until yesterday, May 13.
I wish I have photos of my hair before and after using this but it barely did anything drastic to my hair color, so there’s nothing to show you guyz, but I would like to explain why it didn’t do what I think it was going to do: which is lifting your hair color and toning it.
Theory 1: It’s just a toner. I may have to compare this with my Wella T18 Toner through ingredients —
Theory 2: You need packets and packets of this to make it work. Maybe it has a very minimal effect that our naked eyes can not see. And to try it out for a hundred times would damage your scalp in the process but…
Theory 3: …it will still not work. Maybe it’s just in the shelves for the profit and the consumers doesn’t get anything in return.

I just (re)bleached my hair last Sunday using Ion Color Brilliance Hi-Lift. Unfortunately, I have Badjeje hair on top of my head because of my roots which only lifted up to level 4. I’m planning to try out this product and give it a try once again.
I will document it this time and I will keep you posted guys, wait up for the weekend! 😪
