Koreans love to play around with their hair – whether it’s styling it up in perms or waves, getting an edgy haircut, or lightening or darkening the color to emulate their favorite celebrities. There’s a new trend every season, which is why there are salons that specialize in hair coloring, as well as a wide variety of hair coloring products available at most beauty road shops.
Coloring your hair can give you a whole new look, but getting it done professionally can be time-consuming and costly, not to mention you’ll have to live with it for a while. Below are a few products that can help you transform your hair quickly and easily, right in the comfort of your own home.
Missha 7 Days Coloring Hair Treatment
For trendy ombre hair that lasts only as long as you want it to, try Missha’s 7 Days Coloring Hair Treatment. As the product name implies, the color will last for about 7 days before the need to re-dye your hair arises. This product promises vivid color that transfers easily onto bleached hair in just 5 short minutes and doesn’t require any complicated pre-mixing. Just squeeze the product onto a gloved hand and apply to cleansed, towel-dried hair. Leave the treatment on for five minutes and rinse out with lukewarm water.
It’s available in 9 bold shades, from Aqua Mint to Ash Gray. Plus, it leaves your hair feeling soft and silky, as it also contains highly concentrated hair ampoule ingredients that coat each strand for a smooth and glossy finish.
April Skin Turn-Up Color Treatment
This product from April Skin promises a tint that will last on your locks for up to 3 weeks. It’s a temporary hair dye made with twenty different kinds of herb extracts. It will not only give you a pop of color for half a month, it will also hydrate and nourish damaged and dry hair. Unlike conventional hair dye products, April Skin’s Color Treatment pigment attaches to the surface of the hair only, ensuring that no damage is done to your hair cuticle.
Available in 5 turn-up shades, you can mix and match colors to achieve your preferred results. You can use this treatment on both untreated and bleached hair: it will give untreated hair a subtle colored tint, but bleached hair is best for showing off the radiant pigment.
Etude House Hot Style Bubble Hair Coloring
Try bubble hair coloring for fuss-free color that lasts a little longer. Bubble Hair Coloring is a kind of DIY hair dye that comes in a bubbly foam that is easily dispersed onto your hair, and it has been available in South Korea for years. Each box of Etude House’s Hot Style Bubble Hair Coloring comes with a pump for dispensing the foam, a sachet of the hair coloring agent, a sachet of Silky Perfumed Treatment Conditioner, as well as gloves and a caplet for protecting your hands and keeping your hair out of your way while it’s dyeing.
The process couldn’t be easier: simply pour the coloring agent into the pump bottle and shake vigorously to make it bubble up. Make sure that your hair is free from tangles and is parted the way you normally have it, then put the gloves on and apply the foam to your hair, making sure to coat every last strand. You can leave it on for 30 minutes or longer before rinsing the product out and using the included conditioner. Etude House promises color that should wash out in about 2 to 3 months or 60-90 washes. It’s available in 5 gorgeous shades.
Giving your hair a different color is a great way of reinventing your look and upgrading your style. These 3 items are but few of the options that allow you to see your crowning glory in a different light.
