You know me, I like to mess around with my hair and give hairdresser’s mild anxiety. However I’ve worked with beauty and hair brands for over 6 years, whilst being interested in the field since forever. I’m also a bit of a nerd when it comes to the science and the ingredients, so I like to think that I go into DIY hair colouring and cutting with some decent knowledge and a little bravery. I’m not professional, although I would have loved to have seen where that career choice may have taken me, I enjoy being in charge of my hair, whilst also being able to save time and money that I don’t always have to pay a professional. If I could pay a professional every time I feel like changing my hair, I would.

I bleached my hair for the first time ever about three months ago and then made the mistake of doing three other strong treatments within a week of it, with the dye I use (typically Directions semi-permanent) it doesn’t harm your hair and it’s very conditioning, but when you use something strong with chemicals like peroxide or ammonia in them, that’s when things can get messy.
So prior to my most recent colour change I tried bleaching my hair for the first time ever before going Directions Apple Green, Plum and Atlantic Blue. I’ve never bleached my hair before and it was quite a scary thing to do as it really does dry out your hair and make it go a […]
