Hi Gorgeous Naturals
So yesterday I did the unthinkable..... I bleached out and dyed my hair!!
It was a step I thought I would not take because I did bleach my hair in
the past and....... ok... imagine a desert- real dry, parched, no water in sight...
and there is a tumbleweed just drifting in that dry, parched, moisture-less
wind......... That was my hair!!!!!
I swore I would never bleach my hair again!!! But as I hit the big 4-0- I'm
actually 41!! I decided to take a chance- must be some kinda mid life
Anyway, so since this blog is supposed to be informational, let me tell you
what I did to prepare my hair and what my intentions are to maintain healthy
(1) I didn’t wash my hair for a week-
the natural oils secreted by your scalp help to coat the hair shaft and
minimise damage caused by 30 volume hydrogen peroxide!!! What de…. Hmmmm
(2) I doused my hair in coconut oil
the night before bleaching…. Ok when I say doused, I mean like soaked it in
gooood!! You will smell like burnt coconut so warn your boyfriend or hubby
beforehand (I am single so I have no worries!!)
(3) When I was ready to bleach, I re-doused
my hair- ask my girlie who was doing it – “Hi Tenisha “ - she was like you ridiculous
Hey I wasn’t going down without a fight!!
(4) After bleaching, I shampooed with
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Moisturising Shampoo to put back in some moisture- your
strands will be stripped and thirsty!!
(5) Then it was time for the dye- I
left that in for 30 minutes and then re-shampooed; did a treatment with Shea
Moisture JBCO Strengthen and Grow Treatment Masque, followed by Tropic Isle
Aloe Vera Oil and then Shea Moisture Raw Shea Restorative Conditioner as my
So that was it!! My hair now….. ORANGE!! Not the whole thing peoples….are
you mad!! Just the ends… It’s an ombre effect!! LOL
To continue maintaining health, I plan to invest in vitamins- Biotin and
Folic Acid, moisturize daily, deep condition weekly, do monthly protein
treatments and do as many protective styles as possible
So I will keep you updated as to my newly dyed ORANGE ends journey.
