I’ve been growing my hair out recently; not the length, though! If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen I had about five inches cut off! Having short hair if refreshing, you guys.
When I say I’m growing my hair out I mean my colour. I bleach it maybe twice a year but I’m giving it a little break to let it recoup and get back into a healthier condition [to be honest it’s not that bad but self care etc!] but that doesn’t mean I want my colour to fall behind! My roots are dark blonde and the rest of my hair was bright peachy pink for a long time until recently where the colour fell out pretty much over night, leaving blonde hair behind! I love having blonde hair but… I love having pink hair too much so it had to go!
I have loads of Arctic Fox Pink left because the bottles are so big and the colour so pigmented you really only have to use a little bit so I topped up all the blonde and pink bits with cotton candy pink; which I expertly mixed myself with conditioner [helpful hint; when you’re mixing colour with conditioner you need white conditioner but also get coconut-based because your hair will thank you!].
Here’s my hair before…
And here it is after,
It’s subtle but it’s softened the blonde off so nicely and I love how cute it looks. I will probably add a little more pink in the next couple of weeks when I’m washing it just to top it up but this colour is one of my ultimate faves!
I’m thinking of phasing to lavender over several months, too, so this rollercoaster won’t be over for a while. If you have lavender hair do you have a fave dye brand? I usually go with Manic Panic and Arctic Fox but I always like to hear about brands from other people!!
p.s my ears look really pink in these pictures; I had to up the pink tone in the images to get a real life looking picture of my hair but my already pinky-skinned ears now look insane!! But also kind of cute and why are we not colouring our ears?!
