Tips for coloring your hair

So i’ve recently coloured my a hair dusky dark pink/ultra violet shade and I am in love with it!

I loved the idea of having brightly coloured hair or just a colour that wasn’t brown,

but always had these niggling thoughts at the back of my mind …….

It wont suit me

The bleach will ruin my hair

I might mess it up

What will people think

Everyone will look at me

BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!

So heres a few things I did to make the process of a colour change easier on my hair and my fear of the ‘ordinary’ thinking minds of others

  1. I stopped thinking about other peoples opinions

People will always have an opinion on you or what you’re doing but that’s all they are OPINIONS. I’ve recently come to learn that you should never let other peoples opinions or feelings of you stop you from being yourself.

2. I stopped putting myself down

I came to the conclusion that if all these other people can have fun coloured hair then why cant I? We can be our own worst critics, and sometimes you just need to tell yourself to shut up and go with it. So I did.

3. I added the colour gradually over time

I feel this one is important in 2 ways

A. Bleaching or lifting can be really harsh on your hair so I did mine gradually over a few months and gave it some love by applying a moisture rich mask/oil now and again keeping it as healthy as I could. I like using castor or coconut oil as they are so good for your hair.

B. I feel that dramatically going from one colour to another can be bit of a shock to the system and then you may not like the sudden change, so by doing it gradually you get a feel of what its going to look like and then can decide if you want to continue on or change up the colour.

This is the ‘warm brown’ colour I was for about 8-9 years

And this was after my 1st time colouring as you can see there is very little colour I was just concentrating on keeping it healthy

This is the rose gold I achieved

When I dyed the ends purple.

Then I took the plunge and did it

and you can watch the video to how I achieved this colour here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKeg9fXxYFY&t=4s

 

So im going to end this post with some friendly advice and a little disclaimer

If you are thinking of dying your hair yourself, make sure you do your research and get as much advice as possible on techniques and products and always follow the instructions given. You could also get advice from someone that works in a salon and they can also advise you on a colour that best suits you.

Make sure you give yourself sometime to think about it to make sure its what you really want.

If your doing a dramatic change for the 1st time and never coloured your hair yourself then I do advise you to go to a professional it may be a lot more expensive than a DIY job but at least you know your hair will turn out good

Ive been colouring my own hair for about 12 years now so I have experience and I know how my hair will react to the products

Admittedly my partner isn’t the biggest fan of the colour of my hair, but I am obsessed with it and it makes me happy. Even though I love him and I obviously care what he thinks, if I want to do something that I know will make me happy im going to do it.

Never let anyone stop you from being you

MY 1ST EVER BLOG!!!! EVER!!!!

Well hello there and welcome to my 1st ever blog! im new to this so bear with….

My name is Nadine I am 30 years young! I refuse to grow up!
I am from South Wales in the UK. I live with my fiance and our 3 children.
(I feel like i’m auditioning for a game show)
I LOVE anything creative, literally anything!
I get so much inspiration from music, photographs and colours. My mind is open to every possibility around me which means my imaginative streak comes easy, but I will admit that sometimes it’s hard to have a firm opinion on somethings.
There’s always a positive to be found (my motto)
I started making all sorts of Youtube videos around 2010 and my love for make-up, hair and beauty just grew, so now thats my focus on my channel. I completed a 2 year beauty therapy course at college, but knew I never wanted to work in a salon or even free lance it was just an interest I had, One of many!
This is my space I can let all my different aspects of creativity flow as being a full-time mother for the past 11 years it kind of took a back seat. So now im ready to throw my artistic confetti all over the place! Be careful there’s glitter EVERYWHERE!

Be good kids
