Hair(-care) Update! Bleaching back to blonde! Daddy oh!

Hey there, Internet!

Talking about regrets? As much as I was convinced to stay with my lately black dyed hair I now wish I didn’t do that. I noticed I looked like a young version of my mom, which is ok since we don’t have any problems but really I like to look like myself instead of like another already existing person. So I thought that I would go back to the platina blonde hair that I also enjoyed for some times, back in 2011/2012 I think. Back then I had colorful dip dyes, might do that again at a certain length.

left: nearly black hair / offblack, nice but I don’t want to be a copy of my mom. center: back then when I had platin blonde hair (oooh, look how pale it made my skin look like!) which I changed because I wanted to grow it longer, right: colorful dipdye, might do this again once the platin blonde parts are long enough.

While 9% bleach definitely is good enough for my naturally nearly black hair it seemed I needed something more for the black dyed parts, did 3 bleachings with 12%, roots and some different parts each time so I would not end with dry, plastic like, fried hair. After the 3 times I reached a point where my hair won’t get enough lighter compared to the damage it would take so no more bleach for the lengths. Only going to bleach the roots from now on.

When I decided to go for the black hair a few months ago I wasn’t sure if I wanted black or platin blonde hair because I liked both when I had them a few years earlier. Black or dark dyes won’t damage your hair as much as bleaching will, that’s what caused my decision. Then again I use argan and coconut oils for my hair-care-days (aka every day to the tips and every three days on the entire hair) which makes colorful hair as well as dark hair easily look strange, dull, oily and so on. When I had blonde hair though it was fine. The dip dyes only lasted for a short amount of time anyways so that was ok as well.

These days a lot of people go for white or silver hair, I doubt it would suit me since first lines appear, so for me there is no need for using white toners. What I use to get my hair a little less yellow-looking is Lush’s pigmented Daddy-O shampoo which was made for exactly that, blonde hair and has an amazing scent of violets, bergamot and roses that will last for the exact time I have in between my washing days! No additional toners or conditioners needed these days, Daddy-O and argan / coconut oils give my hair all the required care.

By the point that my roots were the color I wanted for my entire hair and that I cut off the dry ends I felt that the still outgrowing part did look strange. Off to pinterest (see my hairgasm board) again and found a lot of haircuts that I thought would look nice while growing the shorter hair out. Slowly cut until my hair was shoulder length and probably now will simply let them grow this way as long as possible while keeping the platin blonde, maybe the darker blonde parts will get some dip dye because black, copper or green tips definitely would look nicer than dark blonde. So maybe the black dye wasn’t the worst thing that could have happened, at least I now am able to properly grow my hair the same length which I think will be done by my birthday / by WGT 2017 and afterwards I’ll try how long I can get it to grow without breaking too bad.

Today’s Makeup 16-09 (FOTD)

Hey there, Internet!

It was an Illamasqua kind of day. Usually I like to mix different brands of makeup but when I was playing with my face today all the products I went for were Illamasqua. Actually these day’s I dive into my entire collection quite a lot, even those colors that were not used for ages find their way onto the brushes and into the face. Reason? Detailed post will follow in a few days but changed my haircolor to some greenish black (even though some ‘black’ areas still do have a lot of copper and orange pigments to them but soon!)

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07

Hey there, Internet!

Actually, nothing special was done that day, being lazy, watching DVDs, skype, cleaning the flat and that fuzz. But as you were able to read a few days ago, I slowly am getting back into my old shape which means my corsets and other ‘tight fitting’ clothes start to feel better on me again, who could resist putting them back on asap?

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-06 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

Another day off that I spent with that friend from last time and Pokémon X/Y, it definitely will be a tough challenge because we both started with generation one and both maybe a tiny bit obsessed. Really looking forwards for the next few weeks, will be visiting a friend in northern Germany soon so maybe some long overdue clubbing night!
