Kao Prettia Bubble Hair Dye in Dark Chocolate (new formula)

Kao decided to revamp their popular bubble hair colors from the Prettia range and Japan Beauty gave me the opportunity to test a color of my choice. You can see the range on Japan Beauty here.

The boxes have a different look and the bottle containing agent 2 now only contains 60ml compared to the 80ml of the previous version.
The new formula also has a new scent, more fruity than before I think.

The amount of color you get is still easily enough to cover my head evenly however if you have very long hair and used to use 1 bottle you might have to consider purchasing 2 now instead.

There is still a rather pungent ammonia smell but the color seems to be overall as gentle as before and the dyeing result is nice and even.
I picked the color Dark Chocolate as I was in the mood to cover the reddish hue of my hair so the outcome was a pretty rich neutral chocolate brown.

I did the dye about a week or so ago and with daily washing it looks pretty much the same as it did after I dyed my hair.

The only let-down for me is the leave-in hair-treatment which is included. It somehow makes my hair sticky and with a dirty feel. It smells definitely nice but i don´t like the overall result it gives.



On another note: As I said before I was terribly busy with my studies and just couple of days ago I did this horror-exam (the most difficult and the hugest one of my studies!) really with an excellent result so I am happy and relaxed now and will return to blogging regularly.
I am going to be in Egypt from July 23rd to September 1st so I will attempt to post some pics from my trip and continue reviewing stuff I take there with me =)

Hey Kathi =)

Gratuliere zu den bestandenen Examen! Freue mich darauf bald wieder mehr von dir zu lesen und leide mit dir in dieser Affenhitze X_x Sogar bei SPF 50 hole ich mir einen Sonnenbrand, will mir daher demnächst bei Sasa diverse Sonnenschutzmittel holen und lasse dich wissen wie sie sind sobald ich sie in den Händen habe :D

Grüsse aus Zürich
