I Just Wanna Be Myself, And I Want You To Know, I Am My Hair


Seeing as this post is about my hair I couldn't help but title the post with a few lyrics from Lady Gaga's song Hair.  I must admit I was never a huge fan but with her new album Born This Way I have a new found love for her.  Anyway, getting back to the point of this post, after my hair inspiration post a couple of weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and go brighter.  After trotting off to the shops for a hair lightening kit and some more red hair dye, I came home feeling nervous and excited.  I'm happy to say there was no need for the nervousness, and I survived the bleaching with all my hair intact.  It actually worked a lot better than I expected and lightened my hair quite a bit.  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture but it went a mixture of a yellow (almost white) blonde, with very pale orange and pink tones.  Luckily I didn't have to go anywhere the next day, because I didn't want to put the red dye straight on top.  So I waited until the next night to apply the red, so as not to damage my hair more than necessary.  I am pleased to report that (even though I'm sure it is) my hair doesn't feel damaged at all.  Here is the end result...

It does actually look a fair bit brighter in real life, but what do you think?
