I should probably preface this post by saying I'm not sure I really MEANT to lighten my hair this much, it just sort of happened;)
I have a hair inspiration board on Pinterest that seems to be filled with a whole lot of blonde gals, so apparently I've been wishing not so secretly to have a lighter 'do. I spent a glorious three hours at the salon a couple of weeks ago and when I left I looked like this. And I was shocked? Surprised? It felt so completely different that it took a couple of days to look at myself and even like what I saw. I've always been a darker haired gal, so this was fairly dramatic for me. In the end? I like it! It tends to look different as the weeks are passing, mellowing out a little and not completely shocking me when I look in the mirror upon waking.
But seriously, my poor hair! I'm working on lots of hair masks, less styling heat, and letting it sort of renew itself after the lightening process. I'd like to think it looks better in person than in the pictures I take, because I'm still a little off when using the manual mode with my camera….but that could be wishful thinking. Any suggestions on hair care for adding shine and creating more volume?
Now let's have a debate: DO blondes have more fun?
