A few months back, right before the corna-period, I purchased some hair dye from Batam, Indonesia. While I couldn’t recall the price of the box dye, it was very affordable, around the range of SGD4 per box. So much so that I purchased at least 6 boxes of hair dye back.
As I used to have ombre balayage hair, I decided to just dye the bottom part of my hair where it still has the bleached highlights. As you can see from the photo below, only the bottom part of my hair is blue. I have tried many other vegetable / semi permanent dyes out there in the market such as Bleach London Super Cool Colour, La Richie Directions Hair Dye, Manic Panic Hair Dye and Dixmond SG hair dye. By far, Miranda box dye is the most effective and the most affordable in getting the vibrant blue I wanted for my hair.
The colours I purchased was MC-15 Blue black and MC-2 Blue. I mixed these 2 colours to achieve a dark-blue tint on my hair. If you are planning to dye your entire head of hair, full length lower than your shoulders like mine, I reckon you would need at least 4-5 boxes of dye.
The box dye comes with the colorant and developer and one sachet of the conditioner.
It was easy mixing the colourant and developer together. I used chopsticks to mix the dye like a true blue asian.
The process was very fuss free, and straightforward. The result was great and this colour lasted on me for a good 3-4 months.
This was after 1 month and it’s normal for the blue dye to fade. As my highlights was of a brass tone, the faded blue became peacock colour.
I would definitely use Miranda hair dye in the future. They have an array of colours to choose from. Hope this reviews useful for those who wanted to go for an adventurous colour!
