Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in Natural Brown

After reading a lot of great reviews online for Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring, I finally decided to go to SM Megamall and get myself one.

Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewI got Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in shade 3 Natural Brown. It costs only P378 per kit, which is dirt cheap when compared to the cost of going to the salon to have my hair colored. I bought it from the beauty section of SM Department Store in SM Megamall. There were only three shades to choose from: black, brown, and red.

  • Latex gloves
  • Plastic cape
  • Pump filled with clear liquid
  • Bubble Hair Coloring solution in foil
  • Silky Perfumed Treatment sachet
Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewOh, it comes with an instruction pamphlet too but it's entirely in Korean so it's pretty useless. Luckily I've had a fair amount of experience with DIY (Do-It-Yourself) hair color at home. So yeah, first step is to break off the plastic seal from the Bubble Hair Coloring foil. Pour the content into the pump.

Get those gloves out and wear them.

Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewI actually like the gloves. They fit nicely and they're very thin so you can still grasp and hold things properly.

Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewPush down the pump and dispense the foam. The Natural Brown variant yields a white foam that you cover your entire head of hair with. Take note that your hair must be dry when you do this.

Etude House Silky Perfumed TreatmentAfter you finish applying the foam, you let it stand for 30 minutes. By now your hair is sticky and icky. Take the Silky Perfumed Treatment and use it like a conditioner after you shampoo the coloring solution off your hair.

Etude House Silky Perfumed TreatmentThe Silky Perfumed Treatment is a miracle in a sachet I tell you. My hair felt instantly soft, smooth, and was totally tangle-free the moment I applied it. My hair was just as great after it completely hair dried. Smells so nice too.

Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewAnyhow, just from my bathroom's flourescent lighting alone you can already see the difference before and after I used Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring.

My hair lightened considerably just after a single use.

Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring ReviewIt's hard to believe that a P378 home coloring kit can make such a dramatic difference! Needless to say I love this product and I will buy again for my next coloring session. I might try red though. Another great thing about it is it doesn't stain your skin and clothes because the foam remains white (don't know about the other colors though).

But wait, this product also has a limitation:

  • It can't cover white strands. Since the foam just stays white, it doesn't darken or change the color of white strands at all. It just works to lighten dark hair. I was told that the red shade of Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring's foam can cover whites since the foam is purple instead of white. If you have a lot of visible white hair it may not give you the result you want.
