A look at my results for QuisQuis Devil’s Trick in Trap Ash. I mention about them previously in this post.
I did mention I wasn’t going to color any hair anymore since it needed to recover. But you know how it is…
It not a full color or full bleach. I only bleach the shit out of a part, so this doesn’t guarantee doom for all of my hair at least. I bleach the inside back of my hair so it won’t seem so extreme since I’m not really sure how an office would handle an employee with different color hair all the time. In bright unnatural colors that is. I took probably about 2 months to get it almost to the shade I want. Almost I say because I don’t think my hair can handle anymore, it’s really at its limit. It’s as close as to a light blonde as possible for my hair. I did about 3 bleaching but let them rest in between each time for about 3 weeks. Then I did some toning with purple shampoo to strip out the yellow. It’s fairly hard for my hair after so many color changes and lots of black dye. So I settle for what I had. Originally, I was planning on coloring my hair lilac/lavender. I will still eventually, but thought I had all these hair color mask sitting around I might as well use them now that I can.
I believe Trap Ash has now been replaced with Trap Honey which is a much more honey orange shade. Trap Ash is supposed to give your hair an ashy tone which can sometimes look slightly grey/green. Which you will be seeing in my photos below. It is orange scented, doesn’t bother me though I don’t care for oranges in general.
Just a quick reminded, this is a hair color mask and not a hair dye. It is temporary and will only last about a week or so. It will only work on damaged / color processed hair. It will not work on natural or dark hair color. One packet is only enough for shoulder length or shorter hair. If you have long hair, you will likely need 2-3 packets. I like to drown my hair in it, so I use the entire packet for my small portion of bleached hair. It’s not like I can save the stuff once it’s opened anyway This stuff does not stain hands, It will stain surfaces and your nails though. So gloves are useful.
On after shampoo hair towel dry. Use on damp hair, massage in and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes then rinse until the water is clear. Then you’re done, easy as that. The color fades every time you wash, so you can make it last longer by only shampooing every other day.
Yup, so that’s the shade I started with, pale blonde but the tips are almost silver/white. Hard to show in photo. Taken with indoor lighting, so it looked much more yellow then actually is in real life.
This is from the first day, You can see it is quite blue/grey in my hair, especially under natural lightly. I actually like it. Therefore, if you want a truly ash tone, you hair needs to be a medium yellow. If it’s too light as you can see my tips are very blue but more ashy towards the middle and top.
After 2 more washes, it wasn’t as blue as at first. It started to look more like an ashy tone. I actually really like the way it ended up and the way it fades. It’s quite multi colored and fun!
You can also tell ,my hair is quite dry and damaged near the ends. Not to mention it’s messy looking because I am just lazy to even brush my hair when I am at home. I usually just tie it up in a bun and call it day. There’s going to be lots of mask and conditioning that needs to be done.
I think I well try the other few I do have left. This is a very fun/good experience if you want sometime quite temporary & inexpensive. Since it is a mask, it will also help condition and recover your hair. Only problem is it is not easy to get. You will need a shopping service in Japan to get them for you, since I have never seen any online shops carry them
Have you ever tried a hair color mask?
