How did I get my hair this color?💙 (Skip to end for directions--hair story below)
I get asked this a lot, especially in public😋 I have been having my hair bleached for years now. In the beginning of my blonde switch over from brunette, I went blonde over time (highlighting it slowly over 2 years or so to avoid any major damage.) This is how I obtained super long, heathy blonde hair from very dark brown hair.
After being golden blonde for a while, I began getting it bleached and removing the warmer blonde colors. I will be honest and say that this is where my hair obviously took a hit with some damage; however, my hair was still very healthy for being so light and people would say that all the time to me too.
I decided one day that I didn't want to be bleach blonde anymore and grow out my natural hair because of the damage it created at one point with a bad hairdresser (not my usual one.) Sooo I said, well, I don't want my roots to grow out with white hair cuz I will look like a skunk, so I'll just go blue! I've been grey and lavender, so yah, blue should be cool!
At first I was scared when I did it and tried to get it out because I was so concerned with what other people were going to think (I was being a baby)--and, well.. If you want blue, just know that it does not come out. It will fade, BUT it will not come out (hardest color to remove). And if you try to get it out completely with bleach or some color remover crap (yes, even if it says "damage free color remover"), just get ready to get a color correction haircut (aka a pixie haircut). So if you want blue, make sure you REALLY want it!
By the way, I fucking love it now and I want to seriously be blue forever haha I have never had so many compliments on my hair and its all for finally being okay with being myself 💙
💧I used sky blue and shark blue by Ion, mixed together with a bottle of hydrating conditioner and left it on for one hour (WEAR GLOVES in shower too when washing hair to avoid smurf hands). I add more color in about 2-3 times a month. The lighter your hair is to begin with, the higher the pigmentation. If you go back in my photos, you can see my hair was almost white!😊
