"Achievement results in work realising ambition."
So after colouring my hair pretty much to death last year from blonde to pink to magenta to pink again and then red, I realised that my hair was really damaged from the constant colour changes. For 2012 I'm going back-to-basics and going natural (as natural as I can being blonde) with my haircare routine. I am no longer curling my hair everyday which was adding a lot of product into my hair not to mention the extra expense. In 2012 I am trying a new look and going straight by straightening my hair twice a week. I still wear my natural curls every now and again maybe 1 or 2 days a week at most but I have found that my hair is in much better condition wearing it straight.
I have been straightening my hair using my Vidal Sassoon Eco Dry travel hair dryer and a medium-size round brush to blow dry my hair from semi-wet curls to dry semi straight on medium heat. Then I section my hair and adding my favourite Macadamia Natural Oil's Healing Oil Treatment. Using my GHD slim flat iron, I smooth each section to create a soft straight look.
I recently used an at-home colouring system to touch up my ash blonde roots and was really pleased with the results. The product I used was Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde Ultimate Lightener. It's made in New Zealand and only costs $9.95. I was happy to find an affordable hair dye that was made locally (not in China) and that gave me the results I was looking for. I left the dye on for the full 45 minutes and the result was an Ultra Blonde which I am happy to say has only faded a little.
