This is my hair before (it's an old piccy, but my hair colour was exactly the same)
I have finally got round to dying (well bleaching) my hair. This post is long overdue as I said I would do it ages ago, but then they didn't have the dye I wanted and I just didn't get round to it. But alas... here it is! The set of pictures above is after I used 'schwarzkopf live xxl max blonde 00B' what a mouthful! I left the dye on for the allocated time and put a shower cap on (probably not the best idea) I thought that this dye would just lighten my hair a shade lighter so I thought wearing the shower cap would increase it's lightening power from the heat on my head. However when taking a look under the shower cap shortly before washing it off, I was a bit shocked to see my roots were bright yellow/ ice blonde and the rest of my hair was a gingery blonde, and despite using 2 bottles of the product because I have longish hair, it was still slightly patchy, but this is probably due to me not applying it very well.
After drying my hair I was a bit shocked to see how bright it was, and very yellow and dry too! I could have cried, but my Mum said she would buy me some new hair dye in the morning.
(Excuse my frizzy hair but I left it to dry naturally, and don't want to use any heat on it for a while so YAH KNOW!)
Before putting this new Nice n easy dye on my hair I was really considering putting a deep brown dye on my hair to cover the mess I had made! But I had researched about brassy blonde hair, and found out that I needed to put an 'ash' shade dye on my hair to counteract the brassiness. So this time my Mum applyed the dye for me (after seeing my attempt it was for the best)! When it was on my hair I was really worrying because it looked very ginger, but lets be honest... It couldn't have looked any worse than before. So I left it on again for the allocated time, then washed it off and left my hair to air dry (no more heat on my hair until it has recovered a bit) I quite like the results, it's still a bit of a funny colour but I am hoping it will look more natural once I have washed it a few times, and I am going to use my John Frieda shampoo that reduces brassiness. So here is my new hair, a bit damaged from the bleaching but alas... it is blonde!
