Last week, I made another trip to SM City San Lazaro to experience firsthand Lolane – a line of hair care products from Thailand now being sold at Watson’s. With 25 years in the hair care industry, Lolane launched in the Philippine market three years ago. The brand provides a range of products that includes shampoo, hair treatments, serums, and home hair color treatments to name a few.
To encourage the Filipino market to try the brand, SM City San Lazaro, in cooperation with Lolane Thailand, welcomed shoppers to the Lolane Headzone. With every PHP1,000 purchase of Lolane products, shoppers were given free hair color treatments from expert stylists flown straight from Thailand.

Manalo, Marketing Manager of The SM Store SAN LAZARO.”
Before last week, I have never ever tried coloring my hair. I had “virgin” hair, as the stylists called it. Because I have rebonding treatments regularly, I was afraid that dying my hair would cause it to dry out even more. However, the people from Lolane assured me that the treatment won’t damage my hair. They even gave me products to help keep it nice and soft even after treatment.
Moreover, I was afraid that I’d get a color that I didn’t like. I have heard enough hair horror stories to make me nervous! Good thing that my Thai stylist was able to give me sound advice about what color would suit me best. He chose a mixture of ash grey and light green golden brown from Lolane Pixxel for me. Admittedly, the colors scared me but they were quick to reassure that everything will turn out great.
So there I was a bit nervous about the entire process…
The ash grey tone was first applied to my hair. The dye was mixed with the peroxide found inside the kit.
It was applied to my hair section by section. Then, after a few minutes, the light green golden blonde dye was applied.
I waited some more after that and then it was finally time to rinse! 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised by the result. I didn’t think my hair would become so light considering how some dyes don’t really work well on dark hair.
Then my stylist worked on styling my hair and I loved it! I loved how he added the curls to give my hair volume. I felt like a superstar! 🙂 Below, I’ll show you the before and after pictures.
Isn’t it amusing how my hair turned out to be a doppelganger for the model’s hair? Hahaha…
Now, even almost a week after my treatment, my hair is still as vibrant as ever. Moreover, the treatment and serum they gave me helped it retain its softness.
So, if you’re looking for an affordable, do it yourself hair color, try the products from Lolane! 🙂
