Review: Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

by xin on November 23, 2010

Seeing the review on ParisB and Jenn, I finally bought one Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown to try out too!

The last time I dyed my own hair was using Hoyu Beauteen, and it was fairly good.

Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

I picked up Marshmallow Brown for my hair. I didn’t want to risk appearing too dramatic. So I figure brown is a pretty safe color.

Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown Instructions

The back of the box has instructions in Chinese.

Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown Content

In the box, you can find:

1. A bottle of color and mixture
2. A pair of gloves
3.  A bottle cap
4. A after-dye conditioner

Before - Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

Change into your old clothes, and all set!

And oh! Do use baby oil or whatever oil you can find to line your hairline, neck and ear to prevent the dye from sticking to your skin.

Need not wash your hair prior to coloring, I read somewhere that the hair color will stick even better when your hair is greasy and dirty!

Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown Mixture

Follow the instructions, pour the color into the medium, do not shake. Instead, turn the content upside down gently to let the color mix.

It’s strange that the color turned from milk tea into Guinness!

Squeezing Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

Now, squeeze the mid bottle gently and you will see foam coming out.

Once I applied to my hair, I felt like I was almost going to faint due to the pungent and strong Ammonia smell. Seriously I could have fainted.

So, it is best to do it at a place with good air ventilation.

Using Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

Apply evenly to the whole head and wait.

Pick out a strand after 20mins and run under water to see if the color has adhered.

I did the test and then waited for another 15 mins. Then rinse thoroughly and use the conditioner provided.

For some reason, I find it really hard to color my dark hair! Thank goodness my hair is still soft. This is also why I prefer DIY to saloon treatment.

After Liese Bubble Hair Color in Marshmallow Brown

The after picture in day light.

To be honest I wish it turned out to be slightly lighter though. 🙁

Perhaps the color will fade a little more with daily shampoo.

Overall, what I really like its the concept of dye-ing hair without having to comb. Other than that, I see really no difference with other DIY hair colors.

Retails at RM37-RM38 in Watsons, Sasa & most supermarkets.

wow sis, your hair is really shorter now and this looks like it’s super easy to do! 🙂 thanks for sharing, I know what you mean about the color, I’ve got times I colored my hair even darker than my regular hair color 🙂 The color looks nice though

pretty nice color, I also want to dye my black hair with Liese, but I am considering which color I should chose =.=

so_coconut: hm hm try ash brown! but if you use this marshmallow brown, try to leave it longer for the color to penetrate more esp if ur hair is as black as mine

hi, i know this is kinda late but i wanted to put in my 2 sen worth 😀 u really need to “massage” the foam and make it thick and bubbly for the color to really come out lor. i figured this out because i had a whole lotta foam on one area of my scalp and it came out really lightened there! my hair is not that dark, but i have quite thick strands, so like you i was also worried that the color wouldn’t penetrate. you need to make it very very foamy 😀
