I’m not a stranger to DIY home hair dye in mousse formulation {review of Schwarzkopf Perfect Mousse}.  But I am a stranger to Japanese DIY hair dye!  I bought Liese Bubble Hair Color in Chiffon Beige back in January at SASA but I finally cracked it open last week and here is how I got on.

About Liese Bubble Hair Color

  • It is made in Japan and appeals to young girls with its cutesy packaging.
  • Comes in 10 shades : Sweet Pink, Cassis Berry, Mocha Orange, Milk Tea Brown, Marshmallow Brown, Glossy Brown, Chestnut Brown, Dark Chocolate, Ash Brown and Chiffon Beige.
  • As it is an Asian product, don’t expect to see this in your local drugstore (unless you live in Asia, DUH!)
  • As for price, I bought this in Hong Kong for around $75 HKD – and it’s Hong Kong so there’s always some fantastic deal on

What’s Inside The Box?

  • Solutions 1 & 2 with foamer cap
  • Pair of gloves – which were surprisingly good fit
  • Hair lotion 4ml – this was far too measly!
  • Patch testing kit – loved this idea; even though I didn’t patch test!  Naughty me!
  • Instruction sheets in Japanese with English translation

How To Use Liese Bubble Hair Colour

It was very easy.  Pour Solution 1 into Solution 2.  Mix it together.  Screw on foamer cap and squeeze the bottle to dispense foam – compared to the Schwarzkopf Perfect Mousse, this was a breeze to dispense with no flyaway foamy particles at all.

There is no need to wash hair beforehand – yay!  And it’s simply covering all your hair with foam and massaging it along the way.  20-30 minutes later, rinse, shampoo and use the 4ml of hair lotion – which was not enough to cover half my hair, so I topped it up with another intensive hair conditioner.

I did have relatively high hopes after looking at the shade guide, but this is how my hair turned out…

Before & After Photos Of Liese Bubble Hair Color In Chiffon Beige

It’s not a drastic change.  There isn’t a noticeable difference unless I’m under bright lighting.  I went from dark brown/black to lighter dark brown/black.

Likes

Easy to use, lovely silky foam formulation, gloves that fit, patch testing kit

Dislikes

Strong hair dye smell which made my eyes water like crazy, not much difference in terms of colour, not enough hair lotion, hair ends feel like straw (and they didn’t feel like that before)

Overall

To be honest, I cannot blame Liese Bubble Hair Color for a disappointing result.  It’s my hair.  I have thick strands of hair which can withstand a lot of chemicals.  Every hairdresser tells me the same thing!  When I go for salon hair dye or salon hair straightening, it takes double the time for the chemicals to do their thang.

Apart from the crazily strong eye-watering smell and stingy amount of hair conditioner, I liked everything about Liese Bubble Hair Color from its cute wee patch testing kits to its easy dispensing skills.

DIY home hair dye kits are great to save the pennies.  If you fancy trying out a foam formulation and you have easily-dyeable hair, I would happily point you in the direction of Liese Bubble Hair Colors.
