My New Hair!

  So my hair journey has finally come to a point where I never thought I'd be. I finally put on my big girl panties and bleached my hair! I also dyed it fuchsia. So here is my hair journey over the last few months. It's been quite a ride and I'm happy to finally be at this point. I might not keep this color forever, but I love it for now!

This is my natural hair color. Although I like it, I was ready for a change. I don't like keeping the same color for long. 

Fail color. I didn't like this very much at all. In unnatural light, it looked really brassy. I used Medium Auburn 42 by Revlon Colorsilk.

Here I just dyed Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Fuchsia over my already dyed red hair. I loved the effect. It looked like an awesome red violet, and took away all of the brassy tones.

Here I am with Prism Lites Blue bleach on my head. I used a 20% developer, and left it on for about 40 minutes. I missed some of my roots, but oh well. I didn't feel like buying more bleach or dealing with it again. This stuff seemed to be very gentle on my hair. It's probably because I used such a weak developer. I strongly recommend you do strand tests on your hair before doing your whole head. It will give you an idea of what time you need to leave it on.

Freshly bleached hair. Yes, I'm a creamsicle. Sexy, I know.

The finished product in natural light! I used the same Ion Color Brilliance Brights in Fuchsia that I used over my dyed red hair. I look like a raspberry. YUM.

   All in all, I'm very happy with my hair. Next time, I might go for a purple by Special Effects. I want to try Pimpin' Purple. It looks super pretty! I know this is a long post, so thanks for reading if you stuck around this long! Good bye!
