Goodbye 2009! Hello 2010 with DIY: Hoyu Beauteen Hair Color

by xin on December 31, 2009

Coming towards the end of 2009, it feels like 31/12/2008 was just a week ago!

But, 2009 has been a fun year, with more gatherings, makeup and food 🙂 I am sure 2010 will be a better one for all of us.


For last DIY of the year, I bought a box of Hoyu Beauteen Hair Color. Everything comes in the box. The mixture, the comb, and even a pair of disposable gloves!

To be honest, I had really many many many doubts when I bought this. Will I spoil my hair? What if the color turns out like shit? What if I ruin my scalp and I become bald?

But after asking for some opinions, I decided to try it out.


Hair before. I colored my hair 2 years ago and some of the ends still showing the color.


Follow the instruction and pour the first powder in first.


Shake shake left right up down for about 60x. (Manual is included). Then continue to add the tube of color in and shake shake.

For some reasons, the mixture was still in white! I wonder why there was no trace of the hair color.  After applying onto your hair evenly, leave it for 15-30 minutes (depending on how light you want your hair to be). I left mine for about 20 mins. Wash off then mask with the extra hair mask included in the box.

And oh yeah, I asked for my sister’s help for coloring the hair at the back.


Results! I meant to color the whole head but it turned out to be highlighted 😀


The back. It is actually more apparent in person, the color just refused to show up on the camera.

Although the result is not AS awesome as saloon service, but price is definitely better.

And I think my hair is actually not as ruined as when I colored in the hair saloon! My hair still feels soft <3

Tips for using:

1. Prepare a cape, or old towel to wrap around your neck.
2. Line your forehead, side of face, and ears with baby oil so the hair color will not stick to your skin.
3. ALWAYS start from the hair at the back because it is thicker and will need longer time than the hair in front.
4. Becareful not to let the product to get into your eyes or mouth.
5. Do a patch test first. ( I didn’t…ooops)

Price: RM22.90 in Guardian/SGD$9.90 in Singapore Watsons.

Anyone tried DIY hair coloring and any good brands to recommend?

Happy 2010 everyone!

I used this too. put on my whole head and came out… not even highlighter. my roots were showing so obviously >.<

Next time try Gatsby! the coloring is more even and hair actually less fried too.
