***Update April 28th, 2018 >> I would not recommend this hair dye as it faded very quickly!***
So a few posts ago I talked about being a blonde and staying one.. then this ended up happening last week. I bleached my roots no problem but when it came to the toning part, it didn’t turn out. My roots were still yellow and the rest of the strand was toned. So a mix of yellow/white/gray/violet. I saw that and decided just to go dark. Decided it would be the easiest and most low maintenance choice for the time being.
I do like to dye my hair different colors but that is as far as I am willing to go. I don’t like spending much time on it beyond that. Trying to be a cool-toned blonde just wasn’t working out for me, it was costing a lot of time and money. I had to use specific shampoo and conditioner as well which also costed more. I’m sure I’ll try to be a light blonde again someday but not anytime soon. I am naturally an ash blonde which is a cool-toned blonde but it’s the bleach that makes my hair turn yellow and that is what I didn’t like and tried to get out. It’s a lot of work. Next time I do this I will be going to a professional. I am loving this color though. Blue is the color I have dyed my hair the most. Here are some older pictures from previous blue experiences:
