MY 8-WEEK HAIR DISASTER
in chronological order for your reading convenience:
8 weeks ago –
I had my shoulder length hair cut into a pixie.
I bleached my medium blonde hair using a purple toned bleach from Sally’s. Even though bleach is supposed to process for an hour, the package said to rinse after 10 minutes. I panicked and rinsed out after 15 minutes. I was rewarded with COPPER ORAN
6 Weeks Ago –
I purchased two packets of the white bleach and reprocess my hair with a stronger developer. My hair is now a BRI
GHT NEON SHADE OF YELLOW/WHITE. Washed with toners and special shampoos – this color is not budging. I look like a low-budget superhero.
5 Weeks Ago-
I have to work in
with the military for two weeks and I can not have superhero hair. I spend $150 for lowlights and toner at the local spa. Hair looks perfect, but the stylist is a cow and keeps telling me how lucky I am to have any hair at all. So annoying. Hawaii
3 Weeks Ago-
After 2 weeks in the hot sun, my hair has grown an inch and I have janky roots. I return to the girl who gave me my original fabulous pixie hair cut for a trim and color.
I don't know what happened, but she chops my hair too short and the color is FLAT and DRAB with a hint of gray. Of course it looks good in her chair, but once I get home it looks awful. I’m not one to complain about bad hair to stylists, so I commit to not return. $160 wasted.
2 Weeks Ago-
Hating my drab color, I buy a box color by Loreal that looks the same but is ‘brighter’.
The result? Hair is somehow darker and has a green hue. The texture is starting to feel gummy and I see some breakage.
I am stuck with this color for at least a week or two.
