Look at my hair! I'm ginger-blonde! So I was due to get my hair lightened like...two months ago. For the massive delay, I apologise -- for both getting my hair done, and posting more outfits. My roots were just getting so ridiculously bad that I kind of felt embarrassed to take photos of them. That, and I was growing so tired of my hair colour. Something about it looked really dirty to me, and not in the cool, stylish way. Something about my hair colour looked different from when I first got my hair lightened. While at the salon today, while getting the bleach washed out of my hair, I asked the stylist what shampoo she was using (because hell, if I like the product, I want to buy some!) and she told me it was a simple, purple-tinged shampoo, and told me it's good for people who have light blonde hair, as it keeps the colour clearer and looking better. I asked how, and she explained to me that the water in this area is pretty bad (and it is) and will turn your hair reddish-brownish. This has explained why my hair turned a really gross, dull colour! Now I'm really going to focus on buying some. I am terrified of what the stuff in the water might do to my hair at this point.
I still want to get to a lighter, whiter colour, but it's a process. I went to a different salon this time, as I thought the price was going to be only $85, therefore cheaper than the last place I went to. While there assessing what I wanted to have done to my hair, the stylist seemed alarmed that in my request to try to go platinum, the previous girl suggested giving me foil colour. She said it didn't make sense, as it's more expensive, and she didn't do it all over my hair, like we had originally established.
Thus, this stylist just slathered bleach on my head, and later toner, and trimmed my hair -- for a measly $50. I actually have pure white highlights in places where my blonde was the lightest, which suggests to me that if I get it bleached one more time, I'll get to where I want to be. Exciting!
So yeah, it's sort of a funny, firey orange colour in the back. My older hair is stubborn about relinquishing its original colour, but I kind of like it for right now. At least it's not a flat looking hair colour, and it makes me want to Kool-Aid my hair with something red or pink. As I was talking to the stylist, I brought it up and mentioned how Jean Greige tried purple, but it came out in other colours as well. She explained that the different food dyes used to colour the power will take individually on bleached hair, which is just freaking awesome to hear. I need to hit a Wal-Mart post haste and see what looks more appealing to slap onto my hair.
Okay, I think I can now shut up about my hair.
These were taken with my new DSLR! (Well, so were the photos for my Halloween costume, but I had not yet found a good setting for dimly-lit photos, at that point.) I am freaking thrilled with this camera. I think we are soulmates or something.
