Shades Cream Hair Dye Review

I color my hair regularly to cover up white hair. White hair makes me look old. You know I don’t like looking old. That said, I’ve already tried a lot of DIY home coloring kits. The latest one I’ve used is Shades Cream Hair Dye from Splash Corporation. Free full-sized samples are currently up for grabs at Sample Room.

Shades Cream Hair DyeShades Cream Hair Dye is available in five (5) shades: Medium Brown, Mahogany, Burgundy, Dark Brown, and Soft Brown. I opted for Burgundy.

Shades Cream Hair DyeShades Cream Hair Dye is priced at a very affordabe P120 per kit. Each kit contains a 50g Cream Colorant Tube, a 50 mL Cream Developer Bottle, disposable plastic gloves, and an instruction leaflet.

Shades Cream Hair DyeThe first thing to do is to get a non-metallic bowl like this plastic bowl I’m using. Empty the tube of cream colorant onto the bowl.

Shades Cream Hair DyeMix the colorant and developer until completely blended. I used a plastic brush that salons usually use to apply hair color or hair treatment. At this point, I applied the cream to my entire head of hair, focusing on the white strands I want to cover. The consistency is quite watery so you need to make sure your clothes are protected because it will drip. You can maybe cut up a plastic bag and put it over your shoulders or something. After completely covering my hair with the cream, I put on a disposable shower cap so it will stay put. For my hair length and thickness, I had to use 2 kits. I left it on for 30 minutes as per the instructions before rinsing off.

Shades Cream Hair DyeSo anyway, here are my before and after photos. My hair used to be gold-toned now it’s darker and more purple in terms of hue.

What I like about Shades Cream Hair Dye:

  • It completely covered my white strands.
  • It’s probably the most affordable home coloring kit at P120.
  • It has built-in conditioning actives so it didn’t dry out my hair.
  • No parabens and heavy metals in the formula.
  • It’s fairly easy to use.

Downside? Medium length or thick hair will need 2 kits, but it’s still okay because that will just set you back P240. It’s still cheaper compared to most. Oh and it really stains so make sure you wash away any drips in your bathroom or sink area immediately.

I’d recommend this for covering white strands or gray hairs and for making subtle shade and tone changes. It doesn’t dramatically lighten so don’t expect your hair to be 2-3 shades lighter afterwards.

    Does it have the typical chemical hair dye smell? Was it itchy?

      Yes it does have the typical hair dye smell but it’s tolerable, not overly strong. No, it wasn’t itchy. 🙂

    I love diy stuff. I guess we could always manage to color or dye our hair and not depend on salon to do it for us. Economical and saves time.

    I’ve tried coloring my hair using a different brand and it was not successful as my hair is still lack right now. Makapal kase. How many box should I apply for my very makapal hair?

    • Reply animetric November 21, 2016 at 9:03 am

      I think 2-3 boxes, depending on how long and thick. For my hair, it took 2 boxes.

    This is affordable. I still have a box of hair color in my cabinet, I’ll use it first then after that try ko din to.

    Grabe ang mura. I’ve just learned how to color my hair (personally) kaya na excite ako. Kaya lang ang hirap ng mga sources. Sana they get to have stocks sa mga leading malls soon.

    I haven’t tried coloring my hair – yet! When the time comes that I need to do so, I promise to give this a try :))

    I’ve been dying to this brand since nakita ko siya sa department store shelves. But I still need to rest my color-treated hair for a few more months. Will recommend this to my mom for her gray hair.
