I’m Blonde Again!!
I have been coloring my hair blonde since it started turning brown around 7th grade. Recently, I have noticed a lot more people on television, movies, and news stations having brown hair. I thought to myself, “Is this the new trend? Is blonde hair out?” Hmm. So, I decided to give it a try. I went brown. Really, it is my natural color so why not give it a try. Hey, it will save me a little money right?!
For six months my hair was brown but, I just did not feel like me! I almost did not feel happy and bubbly like I normally do. Not to say that my hair defines my personality but, I do feel like other’s even acted differently around me. Almost like I was dressing down. It felt like I was wearing sweat pants out in public every day instead of nice jeans, dress pants, or a dress. I was not presenting my best me! MY BEST ME IS BLONDE! It is like wearing orange lipstick when you know red looks best on you!
People are nice. I have had several tell me, “Oh you look good with brown hair” and “You are lucky you can wear your hair brown or blonde.” Really what it all boils down to is how I feel. I feel my best blonde. 🙂
Now, when I say “I have been coloring my hair”, I really do not mean me. I have always gone to a salon to have my hair colored. Before moving five years ago I went to the same guy for 14 years! Oh, when I moved how I missed Randy!! Now, I have found an awesome hair salon in Spanish Fort, AL. After all I have to give credit where credit is due! So, if you are a local check out FirefliesSalon.com.
On my first visit she did not want to take me all the way blonde. So they put in just a few highlight.
That was done on a Friday and I went back on Monday to go more blonde. Some of you may have just freaked out! OMG you can’t do color and do color again so close together! Well, Fireflies Salon is using a new product called Olaplex that allows you to color more often, go lighter and double process the same day without any fear of breakage to your hair!!
My hair feels smooth and silky! Basically, there are three steps when using Olaplex. First No.1 Bond Multiplier is mixed in with your color. Then, No.2 Bond Protector is used after your color is rinsed. Then, you take No.3 Hair Perfector home with you to use once a week.
