New Hair!!


I finally decided to change my hair!! I usually change my colour or cut every 6 months, but I've been uninspired. I was talking about going platinum for a few months but was still unsure about it until I saw an Asian girl with short blonde hair with her dark roots grown in a bit and it looked awesome! I was sold!

I prepped my hair first by applying a Aphogee's protein treatment the night before to help my hair colour lift as evenly as possible. My ends probably still had some black colour and parts of my hair were already bleached, then coloured magenta and then a blue/purple. My stylist had to bleach my hair twice and then apply a toner to take down the yellow. My roots were white but the parts that were still a bit brassy were the ends where the black and magenta/purple were. So the next night I used Special Effects Mixer/Toner (Canada USA) to try and take down even more of the yellow. This will have to be a regular treatment to keep the the yellow at bay. I also read good things about John Frieda's Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo on Makeupalley.com, which is a purple shampoo meant for toning down brassiness in blonde hair, so I invested in a tube of the shampoo.

  2. Did your stylist bleach your hair and tone it all at one time? Or did you do it over a couple of days?

  3. She bleached and toned on the same day. I added more toner the next day to see what would happen.
