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! Bleaching Messy (not in the cute way ha!) fishtail, did it quickly on still damp hair and then flipped half up 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.
