My Hairprint Experience

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.

Pros:

1. All natural.

2. No harsh chemicals to burn my scalp.

3. No strong smell.

4. Hair is soft and clean!

Cons:

  1. Expensive (compared to other home hair treatments)
  2. Time consuming
  3. Messy

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.
2 before hair
My “Before” pic. It’s hard to see the grey hair in this photo, but there are the shiny strands you see.
3 gather supplies
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.
5 wash hair
Step 1 is to wash your hair with the Pretreatment shampoo. Rinse and towel dry.

4 pretreatment shampoo

6 combine
Combine a Restore powder with a Restore liquid in a non-metal bowl.
8 changes color
Mix till completely combined, the color will turn from salmon to reddish.
9 gloves
Put on your gloves, the mixture turns black, but that’s normal.
10 protect your skin
Remember to protect your skin from staining. Quickly smoosh some petroleum jelly around your hairline.
11 apply
Starting at the roots, apply the foamy mixture to your hair, then work it through to the ends.
13 wait 15 min
Set the timer for 15 minutes.
17 work thru to the ends
You can hang around like this for 15 minutes, but a hair clip is preferred! LOL
15 get ready for no 2
Squeeze out any excess mixture from your hair, and prepare Restore #2.
16 another 15 min
Apply the 2nd set of Restore liquid and powder, just like the first.
18 another 15 min
Set your timer for another 15 minutes
19 clean bowl for 4th step
While you wait, wash your bowl to prepare for the Complete step.
14 safe mode
Certified “Made Safe” !
read instructions
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.
20 complete step
Prepare Step 4. This mixture will foam, but will not get as fluffy as the Restore.
22 apply complete
Apply the “Complete” mixture just as you did the “Restore”
23 3rd 15 min
Set the time for yet another 15 minutes!
12 work thru
Put a clip to hold your hair away from your face and neck. Get your towel and get ready to rinse.
rinse it out
This is blurry, and I’m not bleeding! lol, I’m rinsing my hair with warm water.
24 wash and conditioned
Shampoo & Condition, this is what I use.
26 final hair
I blow-dryed my hair, so I could see the color better. It did not completely restore my hair, but it’s much improved!
27 less grey
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! 🙂
