Hair Shopping!

It’s not quite a hair update, but today I went hair shopping. A friend at work suggested I went for purple, so I went out and bought some Directions ‘Violet’ colour from a stand in the shopping centre, as my usual shop is closed on Sundays. I like Directions, it’s simple and takes about 20 minutes to fully set in on bleached hair. I usually leave it for about half an hour, as it is ammonia and peroxide free so NO DAMAGE YAY! Then, I saw the afro carribean hair shop was open. It’s called ‘Afro Hair and Beauty World’. I’ve been in there before, but it was when I had no money. Today, I had some, so I went to buy some ‘Crazy Color’ by Renbow. I have been wanting to buy from this shop for some time, because this hair dye, you see, is £4 on the Renbow site. I bought it from the shop for £1.89. That is how THIS happened –

We have, left to right – Crazy Color ‘Fire’ no. 56 Crazy Color ‘Marshmallow’ no. 64 Crazy Color ‘Bubblegum Blue’ no. 63 Crazy Color ‘Pinkissimo’ no. 42 La Riche Directions ‘Violet’ You shouldn’t always judge a hair dye by the colour it is in the container when you buy it, but I took all the lids off to take a look anyway.

These are shown in the same order as the previous picture. When paying, I noticed some leave in conditioning treatments, so I bought some of that too. For 99p!

I’ll use all of these (hair updates!), and maybe do a review? I promise, we’ll start reviewing . . . and blogging more . . . George

An Ever Changing Rainbow

That is my hair. An ever changing rainbow.

I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was twelve or thirteen. My first experience was a trip to a hairdressers in Telford, when shopping with a friend. Danni and I used to go up town every Saturday at about 9am, my dad would take me, pick her up along the way, and off we’d go to town until about midday. Which is a feat in itself in Telford. This particular morning, I saw that the hairdressers were doing foils for either £5 or £10 each, I don’t remember. But I texted my dad and asked, and his usual one word text reply came. This one said ‘OK’.

So I booked in, had barely any time to wait, and my hair was done. A few burgundy streaks put into my mousey hair. And then the was no end to it.

I went onto Wella mousse, in the blue, rounded containers, then various others, until I settled on Directions, Schwarzkopf Live colours, and B Blonde.

Today my hair is going through the process of going white, a colour I haven’t managed to do yet. But this was my most recent colour.

So now, every time I dye my hair, I’ll give you an update, as it’s not that uncommon, and it adds a bit more to the fashion side to it all! Lucy will nit be joining us, however, because she STILL HASNT DYED HER HAIR. I did offer, but she never took it up!

Here is a gallery of some photos I could find.
