It's been a while, huh? Update!






So it's been more than a month since I last posted here and my last post was when I tried dyeing my hair blonde. That didn't work out so well but now I have new pics! When I last dyed my hair, I didn't plan on leaving it that way, 'cause it was a total fail. So since then, I made plans and have dyed my hair again. It didn't come out exactly the way I wanted it to but I do like the results I did get. The thing I did wrong with the first dye job was not bleaching my hair first to get it as light as I wanted it to be. This time, I knew I was going to do it right. I had a plan to bleach my hair myself but I oh am I so glad I didn't! Instead, I asked my sister to do it and she was hesitant but she did agree. When she applied the bleach, it started lightening really quickly at the roots but the ends wouldn't process fast enough. By the time she got to the front of my head, there wasn't enough bleach left to finish my whole head! Sooo, we went ahead and neutralized my hair and applied the Aphogee 2 step protein treatment and thankfully, my hair did not fall out! That was the one thing I was most worried about lol. Then we waited another 3 days, I think it was, to do another bleaching. For those 3 days, I wore a wig so that no one could see that my hair was blonde, orange and red. For the second bleaching, I bought 2 kits instead of one (I used Manic Panic Flash Lightning bleach kit with 30 volume developer). After the second bleaching, my hair was a lot lighter all around and, though at the ends, it was still a little orange. I did another Aphogee 2 step treatment and waited for my hair to air dry. The next morning, I applied the color. I used Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing color creme in # 63, Brown Sugar. Well, here are the results!
