From platnum to chocolate! My hair journey!

My whole life, I had always been a blonde. When I was 16, I started to bleach my hair because it was getting darker and I was not feeling it. Unfortunately, bleach-blonde wasn’t exactly a flattering color on me, and five years of bleaching really takes a toll on your hair. Let’s just say, my hair was no longer hair…it was hay. hah. So after a lottt of thought, and convincing, I finally decided to dye my hair dark last April. And it turned out to be a great decision! I loved my new darker hair, but of course, dying on top of bleach blonde hair leads to major fading and before I knew it, most of my hair was practically blonde again. A darker blonde, but blonde, none the less. My hair was also DEAD thanks to years of bleaching, so I started the process of slowly cutting off and growing out the blonde parts of my hair so I can redye my new HEALTHY hair a dark, chocolaty auburn color. It’s been a year in the making, but I’m almost there!
