    So I have been wanting to put color in my hair for almost 20 years now lol. I always chickened out about bleaching, which I have to do for the color to show. Last night I finally did it:)

    My hair looks pretty fried because I blew it dry twice last night, and I normally never do. I also did not condition it after shampooing (which I ALWAYS do) because I just didnt think about it somehow.

    The pieces I bleached however are no worse than the rest so I know the bleach didnt really hurt my hair so phew!

    I originally was going to do like a blood/wine color but my daughter wanted pink and turquoise so thats what we got. I was planning on doing both but thought it may be better to stick with one color.

    I also am pretty lazy and didnt want to have to do maintenance on it or worry about it. I did peek a boo streaks so basically hid them in the rest of my hair so the roots shouldnt show ever.

    I was scared about the bleach for sure but realized, I have SO much hair even if some got fried I would be able to hide cover it...but it worked fine:)

    Do a vinegar rinse before you wash it for the first time and then wash in cold water only, helps make it last longer =)

    This was my first go at colours 3 years ago when my friend was in hair school. It's Joico brand dye (that they don't make any more! =( )

    I like that!!

    When I was in high school I wanted to color my hair all sorts of colors... but was kind of a wimp about it (the maintenance, what if it ended up not looking good, etc) so I just opted for neon extensions instead:

    I should totally do it again. Colorful hair is fun :D
