Good morning luvs,
Today’s post is all about color damage. Over the past 12 months I have experimented A LOT with color. I’ve had a lot of fun with my hair color and have enjoyed the looks I’ve attained immensely. I always knew going in to coloring my hair that getting color damage was a possibility. I made the sound decision to do it anyway. I chose to share this story with you all for several reasons
- I love you guys
- I want to be transparent
- I want to inform you all
- I want to be able to share my restoration story as it continues to unfold
Since I posted the video on my YouTube channel las night, there have already been some strongly opinionated comments made, which I know is inevitable. I just want to make sure that it is clear that coloring my hair was my choice. The same as going natural and getting and undercut were my choices. I stand behind my choices completely and was prepared to face the consequences of coloring my hair from the moment I did it. And most importantly, I AM NOT traumatized by this experience. I’ve been natural for 5 years and consider this as another part of my hair journey.
Here are some photo highlights.
First color treatment. Hair still thick and healthy
When I first brought in the gender blonde. Still thick & healthy
My hair finally at the color I was trying to achieve
A comparison from a style after just the first color treatment vs when it started to thin out after the last color treatment. Same style, totally different look.
My stretched hair comparison
I have now cut all of the damaged ends and am continuing to help restore my hair. More to come on exactly what I’m doing to do that.
I hope that you all find this helpful. To see my full color damage and restoration story and how I cut my hair click here.
