My Hairdying Adventure

Hii :)
So it's that time again for me to dye my hair. My hair is in desperate need, my roots are showing alot and it just makes my hair look so dull!
I usually dye my hair when my roots start to embarress me and pretty much when I generally can be bothered. I currently have red hair with a strip of orange at the front.
I've had a few different colours throughout the years: Red/Brown, blonde, pink, blackblue, blue, purple, red and orange.
I love people who have the confidence to have wacky hair colours, and just like make up, it shapes who you are as a person, pretty much for other people.

I know that you shouldn't make yourself look good for other people, but half the time when you're walking down the street, I atleast worry what people think when they look at me. Looking good and feeling great shapes what people see about you.

That girl you know who has bright green hair you think is loud and out there, but the girl with the mousy brown hair is really quite. That's the way I see it anyway.

I thought I'd do a post about what I use to get my hair the colour it is.
I use Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL in 35 Real Red over all my hair. I bleach a part of it using Jerome Russell Bblonde, using the blue Powder bleach highlift for light to dark brown hair and the purple cream peroxide. I go over this after it's been washed out with La Rich'e Directions in Mandarin.

I'd advise if you haven't coloured or bleached your hair before to do a test patch on your forearm or behind your ear before you start, just to be on the safe side. Having a reaction to hairdye can be quite nasty and it's better to be safe than sorry!
I'd also get someone to help you the first time you dye your hair, as it can be tricky to get it all over your hair!


  1. I used to have bright red hair and it was such a nightmare to keep up to!xx

    1. I'm lucky that my hair keeps the colour in for quite a while. I've been dying it the same colour for years xx
