Lately I've been itching to do something different with my hair. I don't think I've ever been 100% satisfied with any one hair color, or cut. Here is a brief (and sometimes embarrassing) overview of the various colors and lengths I have had.
At 16-years-old, this is probably the longest my hair has ever been. Seeing this photo has definitely sparked a longing to have long hair again. *sigh*
This photo came shortly after a trim and highlights. Although I love the length and fullness, this is picture represents a season of brassy, "yellowy" hair.
This picture was taken after an at-home dye job had faded. I learned firsthand what a stubborn color red is, and swore I'd never make that mistake again.
My hair at it's blondest- I spent most the longest amount of time wearing my hair this color.
This is probably the most unnatural I ever let myself to get with my hair- a mix of dark brown at the crown, but still blonde everywhere else.
In an attempt to even out my hair from the previous picture, I dyed my hair an all-over brown. As you can see, however, the color faded very unevenly.
Here begins a season of seriously damaged hair. I had forgotten how much I hated red, and so I made the mistake of giving myself an at-home dye. The very next day, my friend came over to help strip the red out- we bleached and bleached, then dyed it a dark, ash blonde. I had finally grown my hair to the length that I loved, but it was a mess of split ends.
Instead of cutting it all off at once (I wasn't ready to part with my long hair quite yet!), I took off a few inches at a time and let my roots grow without coloring them. My hair looked decent when I curled it, but honestly I couldn't even run my fingers through it without it snapping and breaking.
If anyone has found their miracle hair products, I would LOVE to hear about it! I tend to skip around, never really buying any one product twice- there's just too much competition among products in the hair aisle! Also, any suggestions for my next hair color would be appreciated! Right now, I'm thinking of going darker but the thought of how hard getting back to blonde would be pains my follicles.
