Hi Friends. So last week I decided I wanted to get rid of the red hair for a few reasons:
1) It is too much to maintain. I was spending heaps and dying my hair every weekend plus a red toner in the middle of the week.
2) Not washing my hair more than twice a week was grossing me out. Now that the weather has decided to become warmer washing hair twice a week is no longer an option.
3) I was bored of it. Red hair is totally awesome I recommend giving it a go. Bear in mind that is clashes with many colours so there are many things you cannot wear.
I thought buying some bleach would remove it. I tried this (see image 1) and as you can see it went a nice mix of multi-coloured orange mess. Kind of cool if that’s the look you are going for but I wasn’t.
So off to the hairdressers for me and 4 hours, 2 lots of colour removal, a hair colour, toner, trim and $204 later I ended up with what would you call this a light ash brown/dark blonde? It looks darker in the pics.
So I have decided to wait a week to give my poor scalp a rest and will dye it again next weekend. I am hoping to get the base blonder and then get foils over the top. Such a mission!
