As you may or may not know by now, we’ve discontinued the Color Shower’s Cellophane (if you didn’t know this, you need to join our Newsletter). There’s been a lot of anticipation about which brand would replace the Color Showers. A few days ago we announced that we were replacing them with the Original Color’s Cellophane by Stoken Gold!
The reason we decided to switch brands is very simple and can be explained in this short story:
Once upon a time there was a great cellophane brand called Color Shower’s that came in a simple black and white bottle. It was 100% natural, thick, vegetable based, covered grays, didn’t leak on sheets & clothes, etc.
Then one magical day the bottle changed – it was bright and colorful (to the naked eye, this seemed like an improvement). Ah, but the truth was that along with the bottle it seemed as though the formula had changed. :–(
We called the manufacturers and they assured us that the formula was “lo mismo” (the same). But the ladies of RoundBrushHair.com are no fools! The thick consistency of the cellophane was no longer there – it was more like a runny, messy [insert any fitting noun of your choice here]. It was still coloring hair, but not like before!
In the end, I took a trip down to the good ol’ DR in March of 2009 and started my journey on finding a new line of cellophanes to carry. The End!
So in March while in
Santo Domingo, I talked to a few friends, family members, stylists and strangers (with beautiful hair of course) and found myself applying the Black Original Color’s Cellophane to my hair at home. Here’s the bucket and products I picked up from the local market and lugged back home in el carro público to do my hair:
The whole process of doing my hair took about – ummm, I can’t remember. But the application of the cellophane was very simple. After washing my hair, I put about ¼ of the 16oz bottle on my hair (making sure it’s saturated from the roots to ends). [The amount of cellophane you use will vary with the length of your hair.] I sat under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes then I rinsed it out with warm water!
The color was beeeeautiful! And talk about shine!! Here’s a picture of my hair after roller setting and blow-drying it straight:
I sooo wish I had a before picture to show you. :–(The Original Color’s Cellophane is very similar to the old bottle of the Color Showers: it’s 100% natural, thick, vegetable based, and I haven’t had any problems of messy sheets/clothes)
Now I need your help! I have a great idea: I want to do another blog entry about the new cellophanes, but next time I want to do a tutorial on how I apply it. Sooo, which color would you like to see me apply?
Majority will decide! This should be interesting. (Oh, and you can choose for me to mix colors too) Please don’t set me up! lol
Update: Thanks to all who voted. I applied the Rojimiso and love it! I will post the pictures soon. :–)
