Hair problems. Again.

It’s only natural that I change my hair like the weather. And when I say that, I don’t mean it stays the same, like this bloomin’ relentless rain! And, I don’t mean go dark for winter and light for summer.

In fact, I did the opposite. But we’ll get to that later.

After getting my hair cut short, I got the black out of my hair and had it brown for quite a while, but I fancied something a little bit different.

I wanted the sides put back short again, because it had grown quite quickly, and it was starting to become noticable with my short hair.

I went to Roxanne’s, and she cut the back and sides for me, making my hair look great just in time for Christmas.

After about a week, I was contemplating changing my hair colour (again). I was thinking of either blonde or black, and after asking friends and family, I opted for blonde.

 

 

Yellow with a side of orange!

We already had a Jerome Russell bBlonde in the house, so I decided to bleach my hair when I got home.

However, due to the hair on the back and sides being my natural colour, and the rest having previously been dyed, my natural hair colour went a lovely yellow colour, while the rest went bright orange.

I’m not one to freak out about my hair colour, because there’s plenty of dye in the shops. But, it wasn’t the look I was going for. And, with it being so close to Christmas, I wanted to get it sorted ASAP!

After consulting Roxanne, who said I should bleach the top again, I went to Boots and bought more bleach.

I was a bit worried about doing it again, because I didn’t want to ruin the little hair I had. However, I took the plunge and bleached it again. I left it on until I felt nervous enough to wash it out, and thankfully, it had gone a dark blonde colour.

I dyed my hair the lightest blonde I could find, however my hair still wasn’t quite the colour I was looking for. So, I dyed my hair AGAIN with a Bleach London white toner, and FINALLY it came out the colour I wanted!

After the money I spend on two hair dyes, bleach, silver shampoo and conditioner specifically for blonde hair, I think I might just go to Roxanne’s and let her loose on it next time rather than doing it myself!

I’m normally pretty good with colouring my hair, but I think when it comes to blonde, it’s probably best leaving it to the professionals.

After sticking with it for just over a week, I decided it wasn’t really me. I went to Tesco and found a deep, dark red, and hoped that there wasn’t a good reason that it wasn’t recommended for blonde hair!

I was getting fed up of my asymmetrical pixie cut, too. It’s hard to style, and needs cutting back regularly. I decided that I wanted a regular pixie cut, and looked on Google to see what kind I fancied.

Ta-dah!

Ta-dah!

Being the impatient woman I am, I didn’t want to wait for a hair appointment to have it done. I wanted to change the colour, and I didn’t fancy colouring it then cutting, so instead, I borrow a pair of scissors from Al’s shaving/hairdressing/man bag thing, and got stuck in.

Having been to to the hairdressers quite a lot, I kind of know what they do now, so I just started cutting away. After a short while, I’d come to the style I liked, and stuck a load of dye on!

I knew the dye would come out a lot brighter than on the box, and although it wasn’t the same colour, I am pretty happy with it! I’m planning on leaving it like this for a while now. And by that, I mean about a month.

Maybe.
