How To Color Your Hair With L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Colors


How To Color Your Hair With L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Hair Colors

So I took the plunge finally. I fretted over it for weeks. I went back and forth on my decision. And well finally just went for it and colored my hair :)

I generally go for a rebonding/straightening treatment once a year and hence to give respite to my hair from harsh chemicals, I stay away from hair color... However, my greys were causing to be a huge issue and I finally gave in and embraced color :) All thanks to L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Ammonia Free Hair Colors...

So here's a tiny little "how to" for you if you have been planning to color your hair at home as well...

The color I used is from the Chocolate Factory range by L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss and is called Black Ginger. Sounds exotic doesn't it? ;) The shade has a reddish tinge and even though it isn't visible in a full blown sort of, it seems to come alive in the sunlight and make you look all made up with Big Hair! If you know what I mean...


Price of L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color

It costs INR 545/-

The L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss Hair Color Kit comes with the following items:
1. Developer Cream
2. Cream Colorant
3. Nutri-Shine Conditioner
4. A pair of plastic gloves

Even though the instruction pamphlet comes with extensive instructions, I'll still go through the process that I personally followed.

1. I skipped the patch test that the instruction pamphlet stresses on. I suggest that you *must do* the patch test to be on the safer side, especially if you have sensitive skin!

2. I emptied the Cream Colorant tube into the Developer Cream bottle. The easy way to do this is by going on squeezing from the bottom of the inverted tube, so that you don't waste any color. Refer to the image below for illustration.

3. Next, close the Developer Ream bottle tightly and shake it as your life depends on it :) This will mix the developer and the color homogeneously and hence result in better results.
Once you are satisfied that the stuff's blended well, cut off the tip of the developer cream bottle.

4. Wet your hair (wet hair as opposed to dry hair helps in spreading of color better) and part your hair in the middle. Create sections in your hair and after wearing the plastic gloves, start applying the color-developer mixture by squeezing the bottle lightly.

5. I left color in my hair for about 15-20 mins and then washed it off with luke warm water.
Next I applied the conditioner that came in the kit, kept it on for 4 mins and then washed it off with cold water.

And voila! My hair was colored! Was it simple or what!

What I really loved about the whole process?
1. It was so simple to do it! No hassles, no mess and the whole process was over in like 30 mins (including washing time)!
2. My greys are covered like I never had any!
3. The color imparted an overall healthiness to my hair. My hair feels soft, volumized and looks very glossy

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…
