This year was no exception and earlier this month I was forced to take serious action as it was genuinely starting to get me down!
Now I'm quite lucky that I've got a mum whose a bit of a dab hand with a highlighting cap and a bottle of bleach so it does save me an absolute fortune in hairdressing bills. Plus the professionals have always said she's done a good job!
However, given the state I'd let the colour get into, it took two rounds to actually get me to the desired colour. The first go just about covered the roots, but I wanted much more of a lift so donned the cap a second time.
And of course you're dying (no pun intended) to see the finished result with the colour...
Obviously bleach does have a tendency to dry out my hair so I try to avoid using too much on the ends, but to minimise any damage I always book myself in for a cut within a week of colouring. Plus it was starting to look a bit Worzel Gummidge.
Now whilst my mum would make a great colourist, there's no way I'd let her near my barnet with the scissors. Not since 1997 when I asked her for a Rachel from Friends and it all ended in tears and a trip to a real hairdresser ;)
When I went for my cut at Vidal Sassoon in Leeds they offered me a deal on a treatment and I jumped at the chance. I had a treatment from the Kérastase Fusio-Dose range, which contains highly concentrated doses of active Kérastase technologies which can customised by your hair stylist to target 2 problems at once. I had the Kérastase System Fibronic which is designed to give shine and luminosity for freshly coloured hair and the Kérastase Intense colour protection booster with ionium and polyphenols.
I've only had the ends trimmed and a lot of the weight taken out of the top so it doesn't look that different to the photos above but next time I have a decent hair day I'll share a pic of with it cut too.
Hope you like it!
