The beginning of my beauty pursuit began based on my vibrant red hair. This formed my image and expressed my taste in style, having my hair be so vivid and bold. I had this color for just about 10 years, and it was time to call it quits. I itched for a change, but I wasn’t sure of what. All I knew is that I was so over the constant salon visits and money spent towards constantly refreshing my color and roots. I was tired.
As my hair began to grow out, I considered something I never thought I would do. Grow out my natural hair…and chop everything off. What’s the big deal, right? Well, I had not seen my natural hair in ages. So I did it. My hair styling thought I was crazy, but she let us go through with it.
Fast forward to a year later… I’m wondering what took me so long to finally go back! There is NOTHING like a fresh coat of color on your hair. All this time, my natural hair felt so foreign to me and actually made me feel untrue to myself. I did not feel like the person I was before, as silly as it sounds revolved around hair. But it’s true. My change itched for pink! I couldn’t be happier.
The process took all day, and as shocked as my stylist was, it was just one round of bleach that she strategically applied through my hair so that any regrowth would look blended. Normally, for somebody who has as dark hair as I do, this can take months! But my hair is strong and for that, I am lucky!
The colors we used were by Pravana Vivids. The shades were customized and my finish result was a mixture of Rose Gold, Pink and Silver.
