Sun-kissed tresses for summer dresses

If you have followed me for a while, you will know ALL about my hair dramas and the trials and tribulations I have encountered! Three months ago I was near raven black and decided the colour was far too harsh for my delicate complexion! 
Soooo...out came the bleach!!


Over the last 3 months or so, I have put my more locks through some intense cleansing, stripping, recolouring and mild orange-ness to achieve the colour I am now!
Lucky for me, my hair is extremely robust and in abundance, so it has coped admirably with all the ill-treated I have exposed it to!


I Have vowed to my exhausted hairdresser (and myself) that I will not be fickle and fluffy, and meddle anymore with my hair for at least...hmmm...6 weeks?! 
But I am truly content with the colour at the moment, and like the little fringey I've got going on. My only wish now would be that it would grow 10 inches or so, and then I'd be a happy bunny.

I will always love dark, glossy locks (and know full well I will return to the dark side one day...) but I think this colour is a perfect sunny compliment for the summery months ahead!

Thoughts and feelings?

Kel said...

Leave it for a bit! keep your promise. Your poor hair!! hehe
I'm the same, trying to leave the redhead behind but it's a slow process and I can't damage my hair - it's growing slowly - I'd also love the 10 inch growth overnight. :)
Lovely colour, and love how you've styled the fringe.
