The Colour Chronicles: SYBIL’S STORY
I first read about eSalon in a magazine. Allure I think it was. I came across an advertisement for a company that delivers home colour with salon results. And I mean, literally delivers it, like on the doorstep of your house!
It caught my eye. What an interesting concept, I thought. Up until that point, I had been frequenting the salon mostly for a single-colour process to cover greys as they grew in. But I started to notice that my salon colour would wash out pretty quickly. There I was spending all this time and spending all this money to go to a salon for colour that washes out quickly. Then I’d have to re-visit the salon and do it all over again!
So I’m looking at this advertisement and it gives a brief explanation how eSalon works. eSalon colourists would formulate salon-quality hair colour made especially for me, customised to exactly what my actual hair is like. Then they would have the package delivered to my doorstep at whatever frequency I chose, complete with all the tools I would need to colour my hair myself at home.
Time is of the Essence
Now, at this point in my life, time had become more precious to me. I didn’t have the hours to spend at the salon every single time my greys started to grow in. I wanted a solution where I could colour at home and save time. I also wanted to save a little money, because I was spending a lot at the salons! Amazingly, for such customised colour it was very inexpensive, under £18.
And so I tried it. I went online to eSalon and got started building my colour profile by providing answers about my hair. My hair’s length, thickness, colour history, natural hue, and desired colour were some of the questions that were asked in order to customise a colour made for me. I set up the delivery schedule I wanted, and before I knew it, it shows up right on my doorstep.
As far as the personalised instructions, it was so easy and very user friendly, plus it illustrated the application technique for my personal colour.
I applied the colour to my hair and sat down to let it all process. But I quickly realized that I couldn’t just sit down for those 20 or 30 minutes while my hair was processing, and just watch the clock. I wanted to multitask on chores that needed to be done!
The beautiful thing I found was that this colour does not drip, so I could be mobile and move around. I put on my little cape and got on my computer, caught up on emails, did a little cooking, all while I’ve got the hair colour in. I kept doing other things that were on my to-do list, checking them off while I coloured my hair, and it made the time go by so fast. At home, I could now use those 30 hair-processing minutes being productive, instead of just sitting in a salon chair.
Once the time was up, I rinsed and styled my hair as usual and found that I got the same results as the salon! There’s something about the formula that makes my hair soft and smooth, and it made me just want to run my fingers through my hair. Normally, the texture of my natural hair is really curly with a tendency to frizz very easily. But after I coloured my hair, it just smoothed out. I immediately just felt better, more pulled together, more polished! Treating myself to this colour was a little act of self-love.
