L'Oreal Colorista Washout Dirty Pink hair dye Cydonia

Semi-permanent hair colour change for the upcoming summer
/Privremena promjena boje kose za predstojeće ljeto

 

Recently I went to Trier, Germany for an afternoon to go around certain shops that couldn’t be found in Luxembourg, like Deichmann or dm drogeriemarkt. Dm is my ultimate stop for all kinds of things; from food to makeup, and all the way to housekeeping stuff. During this visit, I wanted to get some almond butter, cheap anti-scaling products and, of course, stocks of favourite beauty products. I was also secretly looking for the new L’Oréal Colorista Washout hair dyes, and among a dozen beautiful colours I took the pastel pink one for a tryout. Why? Well because I liked it on the packaging and when to do it if not now 😀

Nedavno sam na jedno popodne bila u njemačkom Trieru kako bih obišla određene dućane koji se ne mgu pronaći u Luksemburgu, poput Deichmanna ili dm-a. Dm je moja uobičajena stanica za sve moguće i nemoguće; od hrane do kozmetike, pa i sve do stvari za održavanje kuće. Tijekom ovog sam posjeta poželjela nabaviti nešto maslaca od badema, jeftinih tekućina za rješavanje kamenca i, dakako, zalihe najdražih mi kozmetičkih proizvoda. Također sam i potajice bila u potrazi za novim L’Oréal Colorista Washout ispirujućim bojama za kosu te sam među desetak divnih nijansi uzela pastelnu ružičastu za probu. Zašto? Zato jer mi se svidjela na pakiranju i kad ću isprobati ako ne sad 😀

Rub it or spray it on?

In one packaging (€7.90) you will get a 80 ml tube of semi-permanent hair dye (in a notoriously vivid colour!), two pairs of plastic disposable gloves (ridiculously oversized) and instructions. I think there is also a hair spray version of similar colours, but I can imagine them rubbing of against clothing, and washing away in the next hair wash. And yes, mine says Colovista instead of Colorista (and I have no idea why, ask L’Oréal). If you want to bleach your hair at home, or maybe do some ombre, there are also L’Oréal Colorista bleach/ombre/highlights kits to buy as well.

Utrljati ili nasprejati?

U jednom ćete pakiranju (oko 60 kuna) dobiti 80 ml polutrajne boje za kosu u tubi (u poprilično živahnoj boji!), dva para (smiješno prevelikih) plastičnih rukavica za jednokratnu uporabu te upute. Mislim da također postoji i verzija u spreju sličnih boja, ali mogu samo zamisliti kako se boja trlja i ostavlja svuda po odjeći, a i u potpunosti ispire pri idućem pranju kose. I da, moja se zove Colovista umjesto Colorista (a ja nemam pojma zašto, pitajte L’Oréal). Ako vam se pak i blajha kosa kod kuće ili pak radi neki ombre, postoje i L’Oréal Colorista bleach/ombre/highlights paketi iz iste linije.

Simple and quick use at home

Instructions state to have the paste on for 15-20 minutes for pastels, and 20-30 minutes for more vivid results. It took me 30 minutes to splash the paste on clean hair (washed the day before) and to make highlights with my fingers, a little bit of ombre here and there, as well as make everything even, while smoothing the transitions, and then go back again because I thought I’d like to have a few super bright strands. It took me almost the whole tube to do it. After I finished fidgeting, I let it sit for another half an hour, and then rinsed it with water only until water became clear.

Jednostavno i brzo korištenje kod kuće

Upute kažu da boju treba držati 15-20 minuta za pastelne, odnosno 20-30 minuta za živahnije boje. Meni je trebalo 30 minuta da ju nabacim na čistu kosu (opranu dan prije) te da si prstima izvučem pramenove, malo ombrea tu i tamo, i da sve liči podjednako, pazeći usput da su prijelazi blagi, i onda još jednom sve jer sam se sjetila da bih htjela imati i nekoiko super jarkih pramenova. Za to sam potrošila gotovo cijelu tubu. Kad sam završila s prtljanjem, pustila sam sve da odstoji još pola sata i onda dobro isprala običnom vodom dok nije postala prozirna.

Pastel pink like a candy girl

The result was obvious, but I’ve got to say that the brightly coloured paste had set high expectations for the resulting hair colour. But then again I have to remember myself that this one is intended to give pastel results anyway. The paste has some hair mask added to it, so it left the hair shine and good looking.

Pastelno ružičastasta kao boja slatkiša

Promjena je bila očita, ali moram reći da je živahno obojena pasta iz tube postavila visoka očekivanja za krajnji rezultat. No onda opet, moram se podsjetiti da je ova boja i namijenjena tome da u konačnici bude pastelna. Boji je dodana i maska, tako da kosu ostavlja sjajnom i u naizgled dobrom stanju.

Quick results fade quickly

I have to say that this hair dye reminded me of instant diets: they come and go equally fast. In two or three days it was already time to wash my hair again, so I did my haircare routine in a regular manner: quick shampoo followed by a hair mask treatment, and then a thorough rinse. When I dried my hair, it was quite evident that the remaining pink colour was much fainter (photo on the right underneath this paragraph). Pretty much you couldn’t really tell it used to be pink, except for those few strands that had extra paste applied on them because I wanted them to be vivid in colour. They are now pastel pink upon closer look, but the rest of the hair is slightly rose gold-tinted. The packaging states the lasting of 2-3 washes, so I guess that next week everything will simply disappear.

Brzi rezultati brzo blijede

Moram reći da me ova boja podsjetila na instant dijete: kako dođe, tako i prođe. Dva do tri dana kasnije već mi je bilo vrijeme za novo pranje kose pa sam odradila svoju uobičajenu rutinu njege kose: brzo šamponiranje kojeg slijedi tretman maskom, a na kraju temeljito ispiranje. Kada se kosa posušila, bilo je očito da je preostala boja bilo puno bljeđa (fotka desno ispod ovog odlomka). Zapravo, teško da biste mogli reći da je bila ružičasta, osim onih par pramenova na koje sam nanijela dodatnu količinu boje jer sam htjela da budu jače boje. Oni su sada pastelno ružičasti, dok je ostatak kose blago rose gold podtona. Pakiranje kaže da bi trebalo trajati 2-3 pranja pa pretpostavljam da će idući tjedan već sve nestati.

The verdict?

Despite this short duration, I want to try blue and/or lilac next. It’s a shame it got washed out so easily because I was really enjoying my new hair colour, so this time maybe I will get two tubes of each, and make sure I cover everything well for maximum coloration. I think it’s a great product to try, especially on naturally light or bleached hair. However, long hair owners might find it a bit expensive to have and maintain one of the fun colours for longer than a week or two.

Presuda?

Unatoč kratkom trajanju, sljedeće želim isprobati plavu i/ili lila boju. Šteta je što se tako brzo ispralo jer mi se zbilja svidjela nova boja kose pa ću možda idući put kupiti dvije tubice, ali i pobrinuti se da sve što više pokrijem radi najjačeg mogućeg obojenja. Mislim da je ovo super proizvod za isprobati, pogotovo na prirodno svijetloj ili posvjetljenoj kosi. Ipak, vlasnice duge kose mogli bi se naći malo više udareni po džepu za održavanje jedne od zabavnih boja dulje od tjedan ili dva.
