My New Hair

Hey everyone! I love doing different things to my hair but it's kind of hard doing fun hairstyles with curly hair. My school doesn't let us dye our hair "unnatural colors", only blonde, brown, dark red, ombré, and black. So, since my last day of school was June 9th, I decided to dye the  ends of my hair blue. I think dying hair is a cool way of self expression and is just fun in general.

Here is a selfie (as seen on snapchat) of my hair before dying it. My hair has grown a lot in the last few months because I trim my hair, don't use a lot of heat, and I condition it.  Right here my hair is just naturally brown.

First: I sectioned my hair into two pony tails. I put the rubber band where I wanted to bleach my hair up to. All together I dyed 7 inches of my hair.

Next: Since my hair is naturally brown, if I just dyed my hair the color wouldn't have come out so I bleached my hair blonde. Bleach basically turns your hair blonde and it won't fade until you eventually cut it off. Last year I bleached the ends of my hair blonde.

I used the SPLAT hair lightening kit. You don't need to buy this kit to bleach you hair. If you own a SLAT hair color then it comes with bleach already. I, unfortunately didn't know that.

This is what it looks like when my hair was bleached. This took 55 minutes to do.

Then: I used SPLAT  deep emerald on my hair next.
Just like I did for the blonde, I wrapped my hair in tin foil and waited for 45 minutes so the blue would go onto my hair.
This is what the hair looked like before rinsing it and drying it.

This is what my hair looks like now after I washed it, dried it, and deep conditioned it. I am absolutely in love with my hair. In the picture it looks more blue but in better quality pictures it is more turquoise. My parents helped me dye my hair so it's not my perfect but I like it a lot. Hopefully in the future I can do more fun things with my hair.

I didn't realize this at first but the hair color I used is similar to the one Kylie Jenner had awhile ago. I didn't copy her but I thought it was kind of cool that we did the same color.

Thank you for reading.
What do you think of my hair?

  1. Dyeing the end or tip of your hair is one of the most famous hairstyles nowadays. After all, the ombre look really gives off a playful vibe to anyone who sports it. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with how lovely the color you chose turned out on you. Thanks for sharing that, Christina! Stay gorgeous!
