Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for October 30th, 2010


After 5 year staying far far away from hair colouring, I thought it was a time to change my hair colour. Liese by Kao Japan (  is something new for me, dying the hair like shampooing? I  decided to skip my favorite hair colour, Garnier.



Dark Chocolat is the darkest shade among 10 Liese shades and I always choose darker shade, hopefully it would be appearing more natural eventhough my DIY hair colouring is uneven.



As the application is different from other hair colouring products, I strongly suggest you to read the instruction carefully before use. Besides its original Japanese instruction, It also included manuals of English, Chinese and Malay since I bought it in Malaysia for ~USD12.


Items included in the box : Solution1, Solution2, Former cap, Gloves, Nourishing Hair Lotion, User manual, Allergy Test Panel.


It has Skin Allergy Test Procedure to check if you prone to allergic before using it. From the product instruction, it ideally to leave on the mixture for 48 hours but I tested it for 3 hours only. Still, (%\<~excuse¥*/+me&><;&£), the dye actually was unable to remove thoroughly after leave on for 3 hours! That was probably why Liese advised user to apply oily moisturizer onto skin for stain prevention. Anyhow, as long as I tissue off or rinse the dye in minute, I have no worries to have the almost-irremovable mark.  By the way, the mark of my hand faded off completely in a couple of days.



The chemical smell is very strong during the application but dissipated gradually and I think the smell is not very noticeable after hair wash. I thought the povided hair conditioner is too little for my long hair but realized later it is actually a leave-on conditioner. To keep my post short and simple, below attached pictures will show you some details of the process.



Additional points of ……

What I love:

+ easier to rinse off the dye

+ soft and non-drying hair after colouring

+ genuine colour as promised on packaging

+ pretty packaging & reasonably priced

What I dislike:

– It might be dripping 1~2 drops during 30 mins waiting time.

– it stung the hair scalp slightly.

– difficult to apply evenly on inner part of hair.
