I think I may have found a cheap decent alternative for a quick silver/ash hair. And it was staring at me in the face all along.
Have you ever visited a lot of beauty drug stores and browse at endless hair dye products searching for THE ONE.. Suddenly you saw this thin box with broken english description, somewhat plain packaging and is hella cheap. You're like, "Is this even legal lol. No way I'm putting this on my hair." You leave with the impression of disgust and promise you'll never touch that product again.
Sometimes, I couldn't be more wrong. Haha.
Apparently nowadays books aren't the only ones you shouldn't judge by cover alone.
The product itself is very straight forward. Explains why it's cheaper than most hair dye brands. For 139php (roughly 3$) you get the colorant, 12% developer and the manual (w/c nobody reads).
I know right, 12% is kinda harsh. But such is the life of fake blondes. LOL
We can minimize the use of dyes tho, by using purple shampoo. Then just dye your roots every 3months or what.
In any case, I know this product is cheap but it works. It did give me ash hair and saved me from the brassy yellow horror. Please have common sense not to use this on unforgivable dark hair though. Cuz this will not brighten your hair or bleach it. At most it can only change the current tone of your hair to ash.
