I am the kind of girl who is constantly changing her hair. I am always browsing through Pinterest, contemplating on whether I should have my hair long or short, light or dark, layered or one-length. It seems as if I am never able to make up my mind.
Because of my bad hair experiences of the past, I am very hesitant to try new things. I always hold myself back because it has always ended in disaster.
Well, if you follow me on Pinterest, you will see that I have been obsessing over exotic hair color. Pink, lavender, turquoise, everything. I have always wanted to do something fun and cool, but I have always been so nervous that I couldn’t pull it off.
So last Thursday, I woke up and decided that I want pink hair. I mean, why not?
I headed to Ulta looking for the perfect dye. I did NOT want to bleach my hair (so scary) and I needed something temporary (my school discourages self expression). So after seeking out my many options, I decided to try this amazing product, and I am SO glad I did.
This was exactly the kind of dye I was looking for. It came in this convenient jar and didn’t require any mixing or bleaching. Even better, it smells AMAZING and left my hair feeling so soft with no visible split ends.
To dye it, I put on some gloves and followed this tutorial, mixing conditioner in with the dye but also using the dye by itself to give my hair more dimension. This is how it turned out and I couldn’t be happier:
It is EXACTLY how I imagined it to be.
I am still completely in love with it, and I have no regrets about dying my hair. It has been a week since I dyed it and I actually like it even more now since the pink has faded a bit. The dye washes out very easily, so I have no doubt that it will be back to normal by the time school starts.
I have been pushing myself to try new things and be a little edgier, even if it’s not forever. Fashion is about taking risks and being yourself, no matter how crazy it is. Be bold!
