Going Blonde Part I

As you may have noticed, I've been going blonde. My natural hair color is dirty blonde, but for about 10 years I was coloring it very dark brown, almost black. I especially remember October 2014 that my roots were coming through and I needed to dye my hair, but I literally didn't feel like it- that started this entire process! I had been wanting to go back blonde for a while, however, I knew it was going to be an expensive and time consuming process!

I thought I would document my progress here for you all and maybe it'll help someone thinking of going blonde!

To start, some pictures to jog your memory:

Like I said, in October 2014 I started to let my roots grow in so by December my hair looked like this:

In May 2015 I started the process of actually lightening my hair.  I think we bleached it all over, which is definitely not great for your hair but you do have to strip the color out. I don't know much about hair but it's probably the fastest way to get to a lighter color without having to get stark highlights throughout. I will say that it did take a few times to get the orangey color out of it and I still had to get a glaze applied to it to even the color out. This is what it looked like right after the glaze:

It wasn't the color I was going for, but blonde does take time so I left it this way for about two months to give it a break.

That's it for Part I! Happy Friday!
