Hair Dye, Anyone?

Postby jinkel » Thu, 18 Aug 2005 11:26 am

Hello, everyone!

I'm new here from the U.S., and have always previously colored my hair at home from hair dye purchased at the store. Was planning on doing that here, too - - but having difficulty finding haircolor for blonde hair. Any suggestions?

Thanks soooo much!!

(In particular, I'm looking for Garnier Nutrisse in Chamomile, but will settle for any light blonde product)

Hello,

All the hairdyes (except those in obvious japanese brands) are for caucasian; prob. Asian folks will not get the expected colors. :-)

Loreal, Garnier 're plenty.

There're color guides behind the packaging, take a look :roll:

You have tried Guardian Pharmacy and Watson's I suppose? Or maybe, go into one of the hair salons along Orchard Road and see what they can do. (They might be willing to sell you a pack of their stuff.) Otherwise, internet shopping should take care of your needs. Drugstore.com is good.

Yah, I've seen all the "caucasian" brands. I even found my brand. But only in browns/reds/black colors. I've been in several Watsons and Guardians, but still keep coming up with those colors only.

"whatalark" thanks for the tip. I might have to try the salons. Already tried drugstore.com, too (I used to use it all the time in the U.S.) I was desperate, and willing to pay whatever the shipping may be! :) But, alas, they only had a few colors, and not light blonde, which is what I need.

Thanks again....
