Here's the contents of the Prettia box:
Here is my hair color before and after applying Prettia in Rose Tea Brown for about 25 minutes:
I would have been happy with this color (it's subtle but different than my original color), but I already had the two other boxes of pink brown hair dye from The Face Shop, so rather than return it, I decided I might as well try it!
The next night, I opened the hair dye from The Face Shop:
I'm really pleased with the color I have now, but I haven't been able to get a good picture of it :| Basically it's a nice, dark brown in low lighting (which is great for when I'm at work), but in most other lighting you might be able to tell there are slight pink/red tones in it (see below right)! In direct sunlight, you can really see the extra color (see left photo below).
In any case, I do recommend either of these dyes. I'm happy with my hair color. If you're going from virgin black hair, you will get a more mild dark brown color than what's shown on the front of either box.
And if you have long hair, do buy 2 boxes. I think I didn't get the results I was expecting after my first round of Prettia because I was trying to stretch one box's worth of dye for my 2-box-length hair. If you're not sure about your hair length, I would buy 2 and check the return policy from the place you're buying from, open only one box at a time, and then return one if necessary :)
It's been about 5 months, and I wanted to show how the color has held up.
[These pictures were taken in the same room as the other pictures at around the same time as the first few photos in this post.] [Also, I know my curls are very uneven lol.]
Overall, I'm still happy with the color that resulted from using the Prettia and Face Shop hair color kits :) I wish my hair was naturally this color and that my roots didn't look so obvious and ugly right now but in terms of the products, I still recommend a try!
