Lolane Z-Cool Hair Dye – Ash Green Blonde Review
I really wanted to cover up my roots and touch up my hair color before going on a short vacation with the family in Hong Kong, but our day of departure (It’s today. By the time you read this, we’ll have boarded our flight already at NAIA, hopefully) was coming fast and so I opted for a cheap, temporary fix and looked at the hair dyes at a nearby PCX branch. The Lolane Z-Cool hair dyes were one of the cheapest I found. I found the name of this shade interesting—what do you think? Results and review below!
Lolane seems to be a Thai brand, since the packaging includes both Thai and English instructions. Other than that, I don’t know much about Lolane or Z-Cool Hair Dyes. This product cost me only PhP 240.
I much prefer bubbles dyes over typical ones because I find bubble hair colors more convenient to use, but as I said, I was pressed for time and got this cheapo conventional, at-home dye instead.
In terms of color I knew I wanted a cooler shade of brown because the current one I had, which was the 2-month remnant of Palty Honey Brown, was turning annoyingly brassy. Dyes that have the word ‘ash’ in the name usually indicate a cooler brown shade. Ash Green Blonde sounded like a pretty cool mix to me. My sister, who was with me while I was shopping, was teasing that this would make my tresses look green in flash photography. Which I laughed off because I knew it was highly unlikely. In fact if I wanted green to show I’d probably have to bleach my hair first!
The box of Lolane Z-Cool Dye in Ash Green Blonde contained, from left to right in the photo above: a plastic cape, a brush applicator, a tube of color, a bottle of cream developer, conditioner, and a pair of plastic gloves. These are all placed in a rectangular plastic tray which will serve as a mixing tray, forgot to include it in the photo.
Instructions are pretty easy…just mix the entire contents of the tube and the bottle in the tray, mix, and and apply. I liked that the steps were written on the inside of the box, so they didn’t have to use extra paper for a leaflet. I also liked that there were different directions regarding the amount of time the dye was to be left on based on the color condition of your tresses (never before colored hair, previously dyed hair, and tresses with gray strands). For mine I was to leave it on for 20 minutes on the roots, then 10 minutes on the rest, but extended another 10 minutes for the rest of my hair.
My tresses right now are at shoulder length and unfortunately the dye in this box wasn’t enough. I had to scrimp on it in to be able to cover my hair to the tips. When the waiting time was up, it rinsed off easily and I followed up with the conditioner, which was pretty weak, so after I towel-dried my hair I put on some Snoe Beauty Hair Heroes, which I find makes an excellent after-color treatment.
The growth on my roots was covered up, but not very evenly and not completely. My tresses also looked two-toned, though I had already expected that. Some of my old hair color still showed through, but generally my tresses turned a less brassy, slightly darker brown. Good enough.
In natural light. I like to think that the difference of the shade of my roots and the rest of my hair is not as noticeable in person.
