L'oreal Prodigy 5 - 10.21 Porcelain

19 comments

Hello dearies!


I have something different for you today and that is the review of the new hair color line by L'oreal called the Prodigy 5. Since my recent visit to a hair salon didn't end up so well (read: I was furious with my new hair color) I decided to take the things into my own hands at least until my hair recovers well enough to visit another hair dresser.

So what happened? Being unsatisfied with my roots showing I decided that I wanted a change in color. Something lighter but still natural - and what happened was that my hair dresser - after we agreed on highlights, left the bleach sit on my head for too long (nearly an hour - and my hair usually gets lighter within 10-15 minutes). This resulted in white, unnatural looking highlights, damaged hair and complete disaster. Needless to say I was angry and upset because she didn't even want to fix the damage done but instead kept convincing me how good it looked. And ladies you know that we all know when our hair doesn't look ok :D

Long story short, after a lot of negotiating with myself, I decided to get a drugstore hair dye to repair the damage and to make my hair color look more even and natural, without the highlights sticking out of an orange base color.



I knew about L'oreal's Prodigy 5 line because I used their shade 8.34 Sunset before on me and my mom and it was a lovely shade which didn't cause any damage to my hair. They are permanent hair dyes and contain no ammonia which is really good. I love this new oil technology in hair coloring - especially in brands such as Inoa and Majirel (both L'oreal lines).

This time I chose a lighter shade- 10.21 Porcelain - which is a very light blonde shade. This shade seemed nice on other bloggers pictures so I felt like it was the right color for me at least until I visit a hair salon and get my hair done properly.

This hair dye was bought at a Kozmo store at a discount for 5-6$ (35kn).



Inside the box you will get a standard dying kit: gloves, color tube and developer tube, instructions and a little tube of conditioner. These conditioners are amazing and probably one of my favorites of all time! They really help repair the hair after it's been treated and dyed. I wish L'oreal sold them separately!



 The first thing you need to do when coloring your hair at home is to purchase a plastic bowl (if you don't have one already) and a brush for hair dying. Some hair colors come in a form of a foam so you can just shampoo them into the hair and some come with a tube from which you apply the color directly onto the hair. However, this line required a brush and a bowl so I made sure I got them.
The brush was bought at a Kozmo store in Croatia and cost me 2$ (9,99kn).



Then when you have everything - just mix the hair dye and color developer inside the bowl and you can start your dying process! I love this part, it's so much fun to do :D









Results & final verdict:


Unfortunately I don't have a picture of my hair color before...I seriously forgot to take the pictures...but it was pretty much orange with white highlights. This color managed to kill some of the yellow/orange pigment I had and it actually turned out quite nice (beige blonde) on the parts where my highlights were. So I guess if I had lighter hair this would have been a really great color to have. The dye didn't damage my hair at all. It felt nice afterwards and was easy to comb through. These colors have no artificial scent (it's very weak) so you can dye the hair at home without worrying about the smell. It's easy to wash off and I would really recommend this hair dye line.

As you can see, my roots are still a bit yellow but the overall effect is ok, I will manage to walk around with this color until I visit a hair dressing salon! I wish the color was the same as it is on my ends, down there it's really beautiful. :)

What do you think? Have you tried these hair colors yet? Any advice on how to kill the remaining orange in my hair - could purple shampoo work? Share with me!



Until next time,
Roseybelle

  1. Ne znam kako ti je bilo prije, ali sad skroz dobro izgleda. Narančasto nije uopće toliko uočljivo. Sad izgleda kao da imaš pramenove i ombre. :)

  3. dobro je ispalo na kraju :D svijetlije je kako si htjela :D
    kad sam kupovala ove boje, regenerator nije bio u tubici, nego u onakvoj ambalaži u kakvoj su Garnier Naturals i Garnier Olia boje :) super što su to promijenili :D

  4. ''I wish the color was the same as it is on my ends, down there it's really beautiful.'' Ofarbaj cijelu kosu tako i bit ćeš prava Khaleesi ;)

  5. Ma đe narančasto, ja ne vidim narančasto, nego lijepi topli pastelni krem. Kao neki kolač :D Ja sam godinama sama sebe farbala u plavo, al to je bilo hardkoraški, i moja je kosa puno tamnija i crveni bi se pigment puno više vidio. Za ubijanje potencijalne žute i narančaste ti toplo preporučam Keuneov ljubičasti šampon. Nije senzacionalno učinkovit, ali suzbija nepoželjne tonove čestim korištenjem. Imala je i Balea nekakve maske tog tipa u vrećici, nisu bile skupe, 12-13 kn, pa možda prvo probaj s time prije nego iskeširaš 70tak za Keune ;)

    1. Haha a bas si me nasmijala :D budem probala sa Keune, prije sam ga kupovala kad sam bila plava i bio je oke. Ima i neki L'oreal ljubicasti sampon sta je navodno genijalan, ali je dosta skup. :/ Ma meni je super sta mi brzo primi plava boja al svejedno bi da je ovo gore ujednacenije malo ispalo...:/

  6. Ne farbam se pa ne mogu konkretno o bojama:) Ali sviđa mi se kako ti je ispalo i slažem se s curama da se bar na fotkama narančasta ne vidi.
    Baš ti lijepo na put paše ova nijansa:D

  9. Hi Rosey, thank you for the great review! I have blonde highlights and have been toying with the idea of using a drug store bought product instead of spending a fortune on hairdressers that end up messing with my hair ...
    Question though: I you have different levels of blonde highlights as well as darker roots and apply this product evenly onto your hair, wouldn't that give you uneven results? Will the bits that are already nice and blonde go blonder or just stay the same?
    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Thank you!
    Laura

    1. Hello and thank you for stopping by!
      Yes it would definitely give you uneven results, especially if the roots are much darker than the other parts. As you can see on my picture, the part where I had highlights turned out best because it was already bleached to a proper shade of light yellow. So I wouldn't recommend this dye for your case, perhaps something a bit darker that would cover everything evenly or bleaching and then dying if you want to be blonder :)! Hope this helps,

      Have a wonderful day!
