I was spelunking around the internet one day, looking for an alternative to chemically coloring my hair, and covering my greys.
I stumbled upon Hairprint in a blog. I read the comments about the product and decided to check it out.
1. All natural.
2. No harsh chemicals to burn my scalp.
3. No strong smell.
4. Hair is soft and clean!
- Expensive (compared to other home hair treatments)
- Time consuming
Here is my Photo Experience Journal
I washed my hair with Hairprint’s Chelating Shampoo 2 times before using the kit. This rids your hair of any residue from hair products you’ve used, and prepares it for Hairprint.
My “Before” pic. It’s hard to see the grey hair in this photo, but there are the shiny strands you see.
Gather your supplies. You will also need a dark-colored towel. Gloves are included in the kit. Hairprint gives you real nice gloves. They’re longer and stronger than the flimsy gloves that come with home color kits.
Step 1 is to wash your hair with the Pretreatment shampoo. Rinse and towel dry.
Combine a Restore powder with a Restore liquid in a non-metal bowl.
Mix till completely combined, the color will turn from salmon to reddish.
Put on your gloves, the mixture turns black, but that’s normal.
Remember to protect your skin from staining. Quickly smoosh some petroleum jelly around your hairline.
Starting at the roots, apply the foamy mixture to your hair, then work it through to the ends.
Set the timer for 15 minutes.
You can hang around like this for 15 minutes, but a hair clip is preferred! LOL
Squeeze out any excess mixture from your hair, and prepare Restore #2.
Apply the 2nd set of Restore liquid and powder, just like the first.
Set your timer for another 15 minutes
While you wait, wash your bowl to prepare for the Complete step.
Certified “Made Safe” !
Read the instructions for step 4 Complete, then rinse out the Restore mixture with warm water, and towel dry. You’re ready for Step 4.
Prepare Step 4. This mixture will foam, but will not get as fluffy as the Restore.
Apply the “Complete” mixture just as you did the “Restore”
Set the time for yet another 15 minutes!
Put a clip to hold your hair away from your face and neck. Get your towel and get ready to rinse.
This is blurry, and I’m not bleeding! lol, I’m rinsing my hair with warm water.
Shampoo & Condition, this is what I use.
I blow-dryed my hair, so I could see the color better. It did not completely restore my hair, but it’s much improved!
Less visible grey, and very soft and clean feeling.
I think I will probably do another application as soon as I can order another kit. We’ll see if all the grey is restored to my natural color. Hairprint didn’t burn my scalp like the home color kits do. I like it and sill definitely use it again! 🙂
