Hair Woes

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Back in October I highlighted my hair and had it touched up in January (I think), well when I touched it up, I just bought the Petite kit instead of the full size that I used the first time. I assumed they would be the same, just less product to put on your hair, I was way wrong! I was right about there being less product to put on your hair, but also missing from the petite kit was the toning rinse and the bag to place over your head after you have applied the bleach. To me these are two of the most important things to have when bleaching dark colored hair. Needless to say this did not work well at all, you could not even tell that I had touched them up, so I waited till earlier this month and went to touch them up again, this time I bought the full size kit. I sat for a very long time letting my sister pull my strands through the cap and applying the product, I then went to rinse the bleach out of my hair and applied the toner. Once that was all done I pulled my hair up in to a ponytail and went to get some takeout, came home ate and then I was gonna flatiron my hair. When I took it down I nearly had a heart attack, it was 100% blonde! I did not get all the bleach out of my hair when I rinsed it, so it was still bleaching. It some places it was bleached so much that it was white, it was bad!! I feel like it wouldn't have looks so bad if I didn't have such dark roots, but in any case I could not live with my hair that blonde.


I had to end up going to Sally's Beauty and getting some protein filler and then to Walmart for some hair dye to make me look halfway normal again. For my hair color I got Revlon Color Silk in the shade Light Golden Brown, with this I was able to get it to a very light shade of brown. I was very happy with the shade that it turned my hair.


Then in the last few days I had noticed that it was starting to look very un-natural, so I on a whim decided to color it again. This time I went with Revlon Color Silk in the shade Medium Rich Brown. How funny is it that I'm wearing the same shirt in my before and afters LOL



I really liked this hair dye both times that I've used it and it is super affordable $2.97 It is a permanent dye and has 100% gray coverage. I know when I bleached my hair then recolored it the first time it felt very unhealthy and I was a little concerned about coloring it this last time, but since I have colored it, it feels so much healthier, super soft and shiny!

I do think now I will give my hair a break for a while, I really want to redo the hightlights, but I think I'll wait a while on it and give my hair time to rest.

Have you ever went to color your hair and the outcome be something totally different than you expected? Tell me about it in the comments!

  1. Oh my gawd XD I've had moments where I thought "I wanna do blonde for a bit" and once I get there.... just no... My worst hair story, though, was the first time I had my sister bleach my hair. It wasn't her fault, we didn't pick up nearly enough and I ended up brown, orange and blonde calico! All patchy and everything!! We laughed SO hard because it was the middle of the night so we couldn't get any more until the next day and I had to tuck my hair up in a hat because I was just too embarrassed to walk around calico-headed.

    1. Oh noes! That would have been embarrassing for me as well. I know we all learn from our mistakes, but hair mistakes are mistakes that we can hide and keep secret LOL :)

  3. Ugh...you'll laugh, but here goes...

    So once I decided to get blonde highlights, but I turned myself ultra blonde. I tried to fix it with a medium brown dye but turned my hair reddish brown with brown roots (where the blonde dye didn't take). THEN, I tried to dye it a darker shade of brown to "fix" my mistake and dyed it black! But do I stop? Oh hell no.

    I used a color remover that left me patchy and orange. A brass banisher lightened the orange, but then I had to dye over it with a medium brown. I used demi-permanent dark browns to try to hide my fried, patchy brown hair for months before finally letting a salon fix the damage I'd done.

    Lesson learned: be very careful with the bleach!!! I should have enlisted an experienced friend to help me, instead of flying solo :)

    I think you look great as a blonde or as a brunette, BTW :) you have the skin tone to rock them both! I think as a blonde I look a little too washed out. So I stick with darker shades :)
