On Sunday (22.7.18) after having my sister stunk the whole house with lots of things I decided to redye my hair because I really needed to have done. I had a another packet ready to dye my hair so I literally saved like £4.95 on my next hair dying but need to touch up my double intake on things. You guys know my system by now but yeah my system needs to come back asp I hate not having things that I use everyday or will need later on in the future.
I’m going to write some things down for you guys on how I dye my hair and I will give you advance warning I’ve been doing it for a very long time probably 15/16 years now so I’ve got experience in doing it on my own afterwards. Yeah I missed a few places still but it actually looks nice have bit of my natural hair being part of it. You guys probably thinking “wow 15/16 years” I literally started about 12 I think of maybe 13 it was around then I started to colour it.
It was nothing to do with peer pressure or anything I actually wanted to do it and I was so determined that I wanted to do my parents had no option but to let me do it at the time. Plus my hair was lighter colour then and I wanted to maintain that colour that I wanted at the time throughout school. The colour was blonde at the time o would get one of my parents to do it then for my prom the hair dresser at the time did it and then from then on I had different colour hair until I finally reached the longest colour I’ve had since having the blonde. Would I go to my normal hair colour again I doubt it I get bored and want to go back red again. Maybe when I’m getting really old maybe.
Anyways let’s get cracking shall we. Whether this is your first time dying your hair or you been doing it a few times or naturally been doing it and buying the product yourself I recommend always check the products are all in there because you don’t want to get half way through and you don’t have all of the products in the box. Trust me I’ve had that happened to me before ever since then I just been checking the boxes every time I need a top up.
If you’re doing it for the first time always make sure you have someone to help you out making sure you doing it right even for a few times. Until you feel confident in doing yourself or trusting someone else to do it for you. I pretty much since I got confident with myself in doing it I didn’t need my parent to do it for me; however I’ve also gone to salon and had it done for me but that was years head when I first started.
I only went to salon when I had a proper job that paid well and I let them go wild with my hair cut and we would go for the colour that would suit me better. However I haven’t been for a while and I need my hair cutting but that also involves money that I don’t have at the moment.
I recommend using a old towel and old t-shirt when you’re applying the dye on your head all the time whether it’s the first time or you’ve been doing it all the time. Old towel you need to use for about a few washes or so just to make sure that the colour is truly come out that you’ve missed when you first washed it. Well put it on your head; don’t panic honestly it will all still be on your head the colour it’s just washing out the excess out, I forget about it all the time and panic then I’m like you plank it’s still looks good after you blow dry it.
Most importantly rule ever especially in my bathroom don’t forget to take your old towel with you because you know why? You’ll be screwed when you get out of the shower and you look over to the towel rack. You see the towels and they are bloody white towels! Red hair and white towels don’t mix especially when you forget you dyed it you go for the white small towel start drying your head. Then you look at the towel and see pink/red on the towel you know your dead.
Even with having a flipping bathroom that’s white I’ve got better in not making so much mess like I’ve murdered someone in there. Hands up right now I haven’t killed anyone. I manage to clear up some of the mess that was made and it was all fine. Once I dried my hair it was so vibrant once again I don’t do anything to my hair to be honest I just let it go naturally what I mean when it goes naturally it literally goes into a fizzy curly mode. You probably telling me or thinking that you wouldn’t be able to cope with it being all that and straighten it. To be honest I’ve tried to straighten it but it doesn’t stay straighten for long no matter what I do I just let it go like it.
It’s taken me this long to actually like it for years I didn’t because it would go notty and etc as well but now I know how to deal with it and I like it I just let it be. I do have to put my hair extensions in when it gets really fizzy and curly to tame it but at the end of the day it always looks nice.
