My Hair Story!

Hello girls :)

As much as I love changing my make up to match my mood, nothing changes your look as much as your hair. I've been stuck highlighting/ dying my hair since I was about 13 & I've been A LOT of colours. Everyone is usually quite interested to see how different colours suit a person, or want to know how I changed my hair without too much damage, so I decided to share a range of my hair styles with you!



15 - Until now, I'd had my hair highlighted blonde in my natural red, but getting it dyed dark brown with pink flashes was pretty drastic!






16 - It was pretty hard keeping the pink in my hair. It started to fade a lot, & my roots were very obvious, so I just took to dying it different shades of black, with tints.




16 - DISASTER. As I said, the colour kept fading, because the pink flashes had originally been bleached. Because of the different shades in my hair, it ended up black, dark brown, red, orange and blonde. I was literally the girl with 5 colours in her hair.




17 - After the above disaster, I continued to dye my hair black for a while but then  I took the plunge, and got my hair stripped. Afterwards, my hairdresser put in brown & red highlights, to keep regrowth from looking too obvious.




18 - And finally, my hair was back to its natural colour! (Ignore the face paint. That's not so natural.) I was able to grow it past my shoulders for the first time in a while, & it was pretty healthy.




18 - But as usual, I got bored, and decided to try out balayage. I still wanted my natural colour, but with something more interesting. My posts on ombre in ginger hair are still some of the most popular on my blog!





19 - What can I say? I got bored again. My friend is training as a hairdresser, so we spent many hours highlighting my hair. After a few weeks, she highlighted the rest of it, so I became a golden-red-blonde!




19 - After a lot of toner, & bleaching my roots every month or so, I got quite a bit blonder. Regular hair masks & coconut oil stopped damage to my hair, & too many split ends.





19 - After watching X Factor USA, I fell in love with Demi Lovato's pink hair, and NEEDED to try it. I picked up a bottle of semi-permanent pink colour & threw it in my ends.





19 - I was getting a bit sick of the maintenance, & the pink turned out to be a bit more permanent than I thought, so my only choice was to dye it. I went for a red/brown, that pretty much matched my natural colour, but everytime I wash it, it seems to be getting lighter & I'm now a bit strawberry blonde (As much as I hate that phrase.)




So, from this, I think it's easy to tell that I am easily bored & like change! I'm trying to decide whether to stick to my natural colour, or to go for something different next..

Any opinions? How often do you change your hair?

  7. Lol I loved the post and all those photos. That is a very pretty pink on your hair. Thanks to coconut oil, my hair's looking better as well, so I'm going to try out bonfire flaming red. I haven't decided between highlights or all-over colour, though.
