I'm not a very patient person and I really am starting to wonder if my hair will ever grow any longer than it is right now, but the only way to know is to keep waiting. And the only way to keep waiting is to change it in ways that do not involve scissors. So the other day I had a whim. I'd ombre my hair again. Sure, I can do it myself, why not? I've seen a Youtube tutorial. I got this. So I went to Wallgreens, picked up a box of bleach and got to work.
I finished my project in two phases but could have gone for three if I'd had the time/ wanted to risk it. If anyone decides to do this, invite me over and I'll use a little of your leftover bleach to lighten my very ends some more.
Basically we're going dark on top to light on the bottom in a very messy and imperfect way--which is great because that's truly the only way that I get anything accomplished.
1. In preparation, I parted my hair in the way that I ordinarily do and then I separated it into three sections just to keep myself fairly organized. A more professional lady would have used those long clip things but I am no fancy lady with proper tools. So I come out of this phase with pig-tails. One on each side and then I left the back undone.
make this one that I've been meaning to try but have just never quite gotten around to). Break it out and be kind to your hair for a while--it's been through a lot.
