It wasn't until my hairdresser pointed it out at my first appointment that I realised how light my natural hair colour really was. I decided then that I would like to go back to my lighter roots.
I had gotten used to how dark my hair was now, but even I had to admit it was too dark for my complexion. With my hair even looking black in some light, which wasn't my original intention.
I had picked out a lighter colour that matched my natural growing hair, and stated that I also wanted it to have some highlights/go lighter as it got towards the ends of my hair in a sort of ombre style.
NewsflashMy hairdresser explained to me, much to my dismay that because my hair was so dark that it was going to be a long process, and that my hair would become very coppery if it was bleached.
She said that we could eventually reach the colour that I wanted but that it would take some time, and couldn't all be done in one day, especially if I didn't want to ruin my hair.
So here we have the first step down, bleaching the ends. For some reason in my instagram photo my hair looks super coppery. I even thought that would have been the main colour, but now today I am seeing a different shade all together. A rustier brown copper perhaps. It will be a little while before my hair is the perfect shade I want it but that's alright, I like mixing it up.
I've started using the Fudge Violet Toning Shampoo & Conditioner, which is meant to get rid of brassy tones and it is already working! My bleached ends look more natural and blended every time I use it.
