Spell Saab

I’ve been wanting purple hair since high school. I even got purple streaks — both clip ons and highlights. Never had the guts to go through with it but I had been itching (figuratively, k?) to dye it since last year except I wanted to keep it clean and classy for our wedding. Well, the wedding’s done and I wanted to finally do this before I turned 30. Haha!

Maxx did a project with Matrix Philippines last year when she encouraged other people to cut 8-inches of their hair to make a wig for young cancer patients. It’s amazing that over 400 people did the challenge on that day!

Even my little sister, Clara got red highlights last month from Matrix and Maxx kept raving about how good they are with hair. Quality service and a brand with a good heart? I’m in! I went to Matrix Salon yesterday at 10:30AM, super committed to getting purple hair. Okay, not SUPER committed but 90% committed. Haha! I was so nervous, I had never fully bleached my hair before!

Meet Geirien and Darryl who stayed with me for the whole 6 hour process

Why did it take 6 hours? Because I wanted obvious violet and lavender hair! So they had to bleach the lower part of my hair 3 times and the top part twice.

After each bleaching, you need to let it set for about 50 minutes before rinsing and drying

They didn’t touch my roots until the final bleaching because it gets blonder faster so you don’t have to worry about it! Also, I didn’t hurt my scalp at all because I didn’t wash my hair for 2 days prior to getting my hair colored! The natural oils of my scalp protected it! Woohoo, yay, body!

They even gave me shampoo, conditioner and hair mask to take care of my newly colored hair! Yay!

Matrix Philippines in Ortigas is actually a school for professional hair care & color so you can’t just go there and get your hair done but you can go to salons and ask for Matrix products. They used WONDERLIGHT mocha + color sync 3 violet on my hair.

OKAY, ITO NA TALAGA!

      Omg sobrang bilis niya mag fade. I’ve only shampooed once this week lol and I used the mask this morning. It fades pretty quickly haha I’m currently researching on tips and tricks to make violet dye last. Also, I plan to go back to Matrix every 2 weeks to get it retouched :)

    I bet your hair is super dry. Had my hair bleached last month and until now it’s dry as in. I’ve been using organic shampoo and conditioner to “cure”. Are the products that you’re using good?

      My hair’s drier than usual but not naman super dry. I put Kerastase Fluide Chroma Riche serum every night before I go to sleep.

    I wanted purple hair too ever since! Pero more on lavender para medyo light. Do I need to have my hair bleached like 3-4 times for a lavender effect or light light purple talaga? Parang yung kay Nicole Richie or Audrina Patridge. And bagay kaya siya sa morena skin?

      Yes yung ilalim na hair ko is now super lavender, I had it bleached 3 times :) It washed out to lavender after one shampoo-ing. Feeling ko bagay naman siya sa morena skin!

    Hi ate Saab! I’ve been wanting to color my hair purple, and when I read your this post, I’ve wanted it even more. But I don’t know if it is appropriate for an office person like me (and kinda expensive.) Ugh! I love your hair! #frustrations HAHA anyway, do you have any suggestions on what color can I use that’s not too loud and where can I go to get it done (without murdering my wallet)? hihi. Will appreciate your answer! Rock on! \m/

      Naku, it’s really expensive to get your hair colored and to maintain it. I suggest you get a new haircut nalang instead of coloring it if you don’t want to spend too much on a makeover! I can’t really recommend coloring your hair yourself because I’ve never tried it.. But stick around because Candy and I have plans on coloring her hair a wild color next month here in my bathroom. Haha. Will make sure to document that!
