I have been gradually trying to go back to blonde without destroying my hair the past few months. This past time I decided to color most of my hair blonde. First off, I have been growing my hair out for the past 2 1/2 years. I get trims every 8 weeks, I only wash my hair once a week to once every other week. I have very dry hair & I tan and spend a lot of time in the sun.
I had an experience that my friend (and hair stylist) and I have never seen before this time, it was almost a disaster to be honest. I had been swimming a few times in my future in laws pool, which I have never had issues with before. But all of my blonde ends turned bright green. So I purchased a bunch of products, none of which removed the green. Fast forward 2 weeks, I go swimming again & my hair turned teal. I used straight lemon juice which pulled most of the green out but my ends were still GREEN.
Every place that had green in it broke right off. I have a chunk of hair on my left side that is about 3" long! It came out like chewed gum & when we combed through it, I didn't know if I would have hair left. After we combed it out, I had her take about 2" off the ends & shorten my layers. Thank goodness it looks alright!

I have engagement pictures on August 2nd, so we'll be touching up my regrowth & maybe adding a few smaller platinum highlights on top. I'll be doing a hair tutorial in the next few days on my must haves & how I style my hair!
I hope you're having a great week!
