Hair Chroniicles

Up until my second year of University I maintained my natural hair color and wore it in all types of styles.

I was so accustomed to my own color, but was growing restless with the constant brown. I wanted something that was as wildly-tamed as my curls and personality.

 In 2010, I started my color journey and streaked my hair.

I ended up with a burnt-orange hue, which suited me fine!

But it wasn’t quite enough color for me.

October 2010

The second time around we (my sister and I) used a streaking cap, and I ended up with the majority of my hair being colored

March 2011

When my roots started to MAP (make an appearance) I was too lazy to pull out my handy-dandy streaking cap, so I sectioned out my hair that was mostly colored, and jumped down the blonde-box rabbit hole!

And jumped again.

And again.

But I wasn’t quite getting the shade of blonde that I wanted, and it was fading faster than I expected.  


So my trusty chemist and I took steps.

We doubled up the box dosage.

I also did a havoc-chop because my ends were damaged

after a straightening stint over the summer.

And by May 2012,

in time for graduation,

it grew back almost to its original lenght before the chop

AND

we got the blonde right!

After a year,

I was starting to grow tired of the blonde,

and began hunting down new ideas through a company called

‘Manic Panic’.

AND SO!

With happiness in hand, I chose my first color. 

Manic Panic: Cotton Candy Pink.

The ONLY PROBLEM was that the color washed out suuuuupppeerrr fast, and I had to constantly touch it up.

I soon grew tired of that and went on the hunt AGAIN, for a deeper pink
