I used to look like this
And then this
And more recently, this
And then.... this...
My hair began having a life of its own. After faithfully obeying me and doing what it was told for 8 months, it started to run amok.
The purple turned blue or faded completely. The black which I had been able to bleach to a deep red colour became sort of rusty and orange. The time it took to maintain wasn't worth it any more.
Behold, my plan.
I thought plummy purple hair with a pale pink shaved side would look quite striking. It could even be my new colour theme. I started thinking up nail polish combinations to go with it.
The deep purple worked!
The pale pink dye turned my hair the colour of salmon. After one wash, it became flesh toned. I had a flesh toned patch on my head. I looked half bald. And shiny. I was so upset I didn't take any photos. You'll just have to imagine my shiny salmon hair.
One of these pinks, when washed over with peroxide, would surely turn into a nice soft pink colour.
I was right. It turned out a beautiful, soft and extremely patchy pale pink. Now I had a patch of hair which looked like it had been coloured by a 3 year old.
I was so annoyed at this point I was ready to just shave the whole lot off.
Final plan of action. Colour hair with pink. Wash several times. Pink should fade to appropriate shade.
YES. It worked.
WHAT THE HELL.
I am seriously tempted to just cover the whole lot up with pitch black and have done with it.
I really miss my purple hair.
