Olá, Nobres Leitores!
... And hello, Noble Readers!
A parceria com a Keraton surgiu de um convite da querida Kakao (dona da fofíssima loja Merry Go Round), a quem agradeço muito pois foi ela quem passou meu contato pra equipe da Keraton que cuidou dos meus cabelos! Eles precisavam de um modelo para testar a nova tintura da Kert, e como eu já estava com o cabelo descolorido, fui um dos escolhidos pela equipe para os testes, yay! Quem pintou meus cabelos foi a Lilian De Paula! Eu jamais tinha pensado em pintar de azul antes mas achei que valia a pena tentar, a vida é muito curta pra não arriscar hehe! O motivo do teste é que muita gente reclamava do tom mais claro da linha de azuis: O antigo Indie Blue da marca saía com tanta facilidade que recebeu inúmeros feedbacks negativos, então a Keraton desenvolveu uma nova fórmula pra corrigir isso. Para o primeiro teste, foi aplicado o antigo indie blue no topo da minha cabeça e a nova coloração no restante do cabelo, gerando um degradê de azuis que a Lilian chamou de "Denim Hair"! Confira abaixo algumas fotos do dia e de como ficou a cor!
The partnership with Keraton came from an invitation from the dearest Kakao (owner of the cute Merry Go Round store), whom I am very grateful to! She sent Keraton team's contacts, who later took care of my hair! They needed a model to test the new blue dye for Hard Colors by Kert, and as I already had bleached hair, I was one of the chosen by the team for the tests, yay! I had never thought of dyeing my hair blue before but it was worth a try, life is too short to not take the chance lol They needed to make a new dye color because many people complained about the lighter shade of their blue hairdye: The old Indie Blue from the brand vanished too easily and it received numerous negative feedbacks, then the Keraton team developed a new formula to fix this. For the first test, they dyed the top of my head with the former indie blue and the new color in the bottom, creating a amazing blue gradient that the hairdresser called "Denim Hair"! Check out some photos of the day and the color results!

Logo abaixo mais algumas lembranças de como ficou!
The first positive feedback for the brand is aboutthe color: Even if you do not have bleached hair in the last tone (white), the toners of Kert Hard Colors really stick in the hair! The more bleached, the greater the effect and durability (for pastel shades, for example, it is essential to be in the last tone). When I had pink hair (remember here) my hair had almost no bleach, and even then the color was quite vibrant and beautiful, in addition to a a very good health! It is worth mentioning that the Insane Pink (the name of the dye that I used earlier) is one of the Hard Colors's dyes that has more positive feedbacks, and when it faded, i thought that it was also cute (but I do not know what could have happened if I had kept it longer because my intention was to dye pink just for fun, as I would had it cut in a couple of weeks).
Here a few memories of how it was:

Voltando aos azuis!
Ela me explicou que os tonalizantes da Kert foram feitos para durar oito lavagens, mas no meu cabelo durou muuuuito mais tempo! O indie blue, é claro, desbotou mais rápido que o outro nas primeiras lavagens, puxando pra um tom esverdeado. A nova coloração desbotou de um azul bem forte (como você pode ver no antes e depois) pra um azul bebê adorável! *o* Neste período, a mistura de verde no topo+azul bebê nas pontas deixou meu cabelo com um turquesa inacreditável!!! Sei que turquesa é uma das cores mais difícil de conseguir e se a primeira intenção fosse chegar nele, provavelmente não teria conseguido hauhaua! Então se você está procurando deixar seu cabelo nesse tom, fica a dica: Misture o Indie blue com um azul mais forte (enquanto a nova cor não chega, tente com o ecstasy blue) e deixe desbotar bastante nas primeiras lavagens. É sucesso certo (lembrando que eu estava com o cabelo descolorido no último tom)!!!
Back to the blues' topic!
My hairdresser explained that the toners of Kert were made to last somewhat eight washes, but it lasted waaaay longer in my head! The indie blue dye, of course, faded faster than the other one in the first few washings, getting a greenish shade. The new color from the bottom faded from a very strong blue (as you can see the before and after) to a adorable baby blue! *O* In this period, the mixture of green on top + baby blue on the bottom created an unbelievable turquoise tone!!! I know that turquoise is one of the most difficult colors to achieve and if my first intention was to get it, I'd probably not get it, at least not so easily lol! So if you're trying to dye your hair in that tone, that's one tip: Mix the Indie blue or a lighter shade of blue with a stronger one at the bottom and let it fade in the first washes. It is granted success (remember that I was with bleached hair in the last tone)!!!

Besides the fun of the dyeing process, the Keraton's team presented me with the entire line of care products for post-coloring! So lovely!!! ♥ It works like this: First, you use the shampoo, followed by the 3 minute miracle, then seal your hair with the conditioner and, after bathing, apply the keratin reload (Power Keratin). If the Kert's dye alone can moisturize your hair, this complete treatment is the holy grail: Many people are very afraid of the post-coloring dryness, which definitely does not occur with Hard Colors and even less if you use their products! She explained that the hair, with bleaching, lose its natural constitution and at this stage is most important to feed it; then moisturizing with products that reconstitute keratin are essential and this Phytogen line is prepared exactly for that. In my last bleaching, to get the white tone I had a chemical cut (which I only found out on the day I had it painted blue), but I left the saloon with a healthy and fully recovered hair as well as a powerful hydration that felt like a new doll's hair: Soft, silky and easy to comb! What a pitty that it doesn't last long, but at least my hair is not so dry anymore and I am very happy with the products! Feedback totally positive for hydration too. You may think there's anything better, right? But there is more to come.

To finish the durability experiments, after many washings (that lasted almost two months) I made a deep cleanup in an attempt to remove the greenish dye remais due to the Indie Blue toner, hoping to get my former white hair back. To my surprise, neither of the dyes faded!!! I repeated the process without success a few times, and so I had to apply a chemical to start the fading process again! My third positive feedback for the brand is for durability: Even being made to vanish in eight washes, this dye has withstood in my hair almost for three months, and a entire month just trying to take the turquoise away; which only began to vanish after the second (I repeat, SECOND) attempt to chemically remove the dye remains!!! What a mad resistance! I finished givin'up trying to remove it completely, it really did not come out even after all that chemical process, and now my hair is a mix of white + pastel blue as you can see in the photos below! The intention of Kert with the new formula was to increase the durability of their blue dyes, and they have managed it masterfully! As an extra information, chemical removing is famous for letting the hair VERY dry, but using the same treatment I mentioned up (with phytogen products) I felt no side effects (hydration is maintained even after the third chemical application)!
