My name is Faiza. And I am a hair colour addict. Admitting it is the first step, right?! I prefer to call it “The Journey of my Hair”. And like any journey, there were ups and there were downs. My current colour, I’m happy with. I’ve had it now for about 6 weeks and the fact that I haven’t changed it (even though it’s fading a bit – YIKES) must mean I like it, right? So I thought, today’s post will be a bit different. Come along with me on one hell of a journey….!
If we’re starting from the beginning, then you need to know that the absolute first time I coloured my hair was when I was 16. I didn’t know anything about brassy tones or going from black to blonde, so I stuck a box dye of platinum ice blonde on my naturally black hair. Needless to say, there are no photos (or none that I will share publicly) of this tragedy. And yes, it was a tragedy, mostly because I didn’t think it was tragic back then – which in itself, is quite the tragedy.
Fast forward some years and this….
Black………Brown(ish)……..Brassy! Also imagine a mixture of the black on top and some orangey /browney/ blondey bits at the bottom!
(Apologies for the images – but finding a photo that showed my hair colour and that was even slightly good was near enough impossible!)
After MUCH experimenting – and even dying it quite dark and lightening it up with the ol’ shampoo and vitamin C trick – I’ve settled on this….
It’s a bit faded now….But I’M NOT TOUCHING IT!!!
I used these products to achieve the magenta-y purple shade:
So, what do you think? Stick to this – or change it up a bit! Ha!
Are you a hair colour addict like me? What’s your hair journey? As always, I’d love to hear from you!
