Hello agaaaain :) feel like i'm on abit of a roll today with blogging :) haha. This post is going to be about my hair and the way i've changed it over time, hope you like it. Firstly i think i should mention that my hair is naturally quite wavy however, i straighten it almost everyday as i don't really like the way it looks naturally.
Okay so this is an extremely embarassing and old picture haha! But this is my hair naturally with just my fringe straightened. This is also before i first coloured my hair so it's naturally just this dark brown colour. (Summer 2009)
The first time i dyed my hair was a reddy colour, from what i can remember i used a L'Oreal Casting Creme Gloss in Mahogany, it was semi-permanent. My hair was quite long and i think i was relatively happy with my hair at this point :). (December 2009)
Next, I had my hair cut abit shorter (just below my shoulders), i dyed my hair a reddy/brown colour and had a golden/gingery highlight put in my fringe. This haircut felt like such a change to me as i was used to having relatively long hair, but i did like it :). I remember i wanted a change as i'd just had braces and felt all horrible :( so this made me feel a bit better. (March 2010)
I then let my hair grow abit and kept it this similar reddy/brown. I had extensions glued in at the start of Summer 2010, i hated them, they ruined my hair, sorry i don't have any pictures. I then had my hair cut into a proper bob at the end of Summer 2010, i really liked it at the time but looking back at photos i can see that it doesn't suit my face shape atall. I had it dyed a similar colour to the photo above with the golden highlight through my fringe.
In October 2010 i decided i wanted a different colour hair, i didn't want reddy/brown hair anymore. I wanted something a bit darker, so i used a Schwarzkopf Live Colour in Bitter Sweet Chocolate, i was expecting it to come out dark brown, but it literally came out black :( i hated it. Now i think short, black hair can look absolutely gorrrrrgeous on some people, however, it did not suit me atall. I remember not feeling very confident at this point.
In December 2010 i had extensions put in, they were micro loop hair extensions rather than glue-in and i also had my hair the same Schwarzkopf colour as before. However, i think i just discovered that extensions weren't for me atall, waaay to much hassle and maintenance.
In March 2011 my bob had grown out and my hair was just shoulder-length. It was still dark brown but i didn't mind it quite as much :).
In Summer 2011 I used ColourB4 to get rid of the dark brown and had blonde highlights using a cap with tiny holes which you pull the hair through (i'm sorry it's not a very technical term isit ;)?). So sorry for the rubbish photo!!
At the end of summer 2011 i dyed my hair a browny colour which looked quite red in some lights. I was happy because my hair had grown quite a lot :) :) :).
In November 2011 I dyed my hair this red colour using a Schwarzkopf dye in Red Passion. I reaaally did like my hair this colour, however, i found that my roots went so red and the ends of my hair were just more browny red. I was also happy with the amount my hair had grown at this point :).
In December 2011 i used the Colour B4 Extra Strength Hair colour remover again and use the highlighting cap thing again(?) haha. I was so happy with how much this lightened my hair :) although when you used the highlighting cap it is so difficult to reach the roots, so they were abit darker as you may be able to see in this photo...
Today i dyed my hair again to try and get my roots as light as the rest of my hair, which it did :) here it is now..
(and yep i am wearing my onesie ;) hehehe)
So sorry it was such a looooooooong post haha! Hope you enjoyed :)
Let me know what you think!!
Lots of love,
