24hrs in BLEACH

Here is the video I made whilst dying my hair...

...And my big "reveal" video...

Ok so it's fairly safe to say I've ruined my hair :/
Why I do it I don't know but I think this time I've learnt my lesson.
Over the past few days I've used colourb4 taking my dark brown/black hair to a lovely auburn red shade... not for me, I dyed it a "light brown" which proved to be darker than it had been BEFORE the colourb4 so ... back to square one. Then I decided to bleach my hair... then again... then I dyed it a dark blonde because it wasn't lifting and I had yellow roots and ginger lengths... this dye evened it all out pretty well but by day it looked pretty terrible on me so something had to be done. I of course (less than 24 hours later) bleached my hair TWICE more and then toned it... by this time the bottom 3 inches were like chewing gum and impossible to comb/brush, but my hair was still very yellow/orange/uneven from the bleach... so what did I do?
Dye it of course! So for the final time I used a medium ash blonde and it seemed to eradicate most of the yellow tones and leave me with a pale gold blonde... rather flattering and I can live with it ... GOOD NEWS! 
Of course my hair was trashed, I mentioned before that I had a hair appt and I intended to have a long bob cut but in all honesty I couldn't face a hairdressers judgement so... I cut it myself (with a little help in the back from Lee) ... I must be absolutely CRAZY! 

I actually really love the cut and the colour is nice, I will probably use a toner again to lift the remaining yellow tones but otherwise I think I'm done, my hair needs a serious rest. The last time I did anything remotely as reckless I had to have a pixie cut (I cannot pull that look off) so I was off my head to do this but I am what they call a beauty addict... this is my addiction...
I have joined a program and put down the bottled blonde
Hopefully my mistakes will help someone else and my hair isn't beyond repair.. oh and my journey has made for good TV lol..
Either way, it's done now, I'm off to have fun... I've heard that's what blondes do :P


  1. This color looks! GREAT! Luv it on u! =]

  2. totally love the color n cut! You have like big brass balls girl!! thats why I love your blog and channel. You dont care if you mess up you still post about it love it! I think your hair looks amazing

  3. It looks great, the hair really warms your colouring up :)



  4. Omg, how do you still have any hair left? The colour looks fab on you, you really suit being blonde.

  5. aww its so pretty, glad it all worked out well for you, i too recently did the whole blonde thing so yay for both of us! lol, isnt the john frieda conditioner amazing?

  6. love you blonde!
    blondes are so much more eyecatching!
    I'm finally blonde after being mahogany for winter, yay! :D

  7. This colour Looks great on you!! x

  8. I can't believe you used all those boxes of dye because your hair looks great and not damaged at all?? The colour really suits you x

  9. i did the same like a week ago :) love it on you :)

  10. Loved watching your journey! It helped me not to be so stressed about bleaching my hair at home. Your end result was lovely. I have a few more bleach baths to go (which are gentler on your hair, but still damage), but yes, LOVED the videos and had to comment, even though it's from last year.

  11. I found your videos on youtube and thought I'd ask a few questions. I was pretty much browny black and just used Colourb4 to lift my hair to a medium brown with gingery blonde roots. I too have bought the smart blonde high lift hair lightener and was wondering what colour this left you with? It says it has no ammonia so I'm hoping its gentle on my hair. I have bought an ash blonde dye for afterwards. Do you think I'd have to bleach it more than once and was it this bleach which wrecked your hair? Please let me know :) Thanks! xox
