I AM naturally blonde, but it’s not nearly as light as I need it to be to put the pink in! My natural colour is a very ashy blonde, almost grey in terms of tone. Here, for comparison, the top photo is prior to bleaching, and the bottom one is after bleaching.
It’s very considerate of you to ask and to be concerned! On behalf of rainbow coloured unicorn princesses everywhere, thank you.
Generally, I dislike like these kind of responses-
“Your hair is pink!”
“Wow! Hair! Pink! You have!”
“That looks great on you, but you wouldn’t catch me dead in it.”
“That looks great on you, I see so many girls trying to pull it off and they look like shit. But you look great.”
“Your hair is pink!!”
When I’m at work I will nod along and laugh in a bemused fashion because being kind and accommodating is part of my job. But inside my head I am throwing shade, vast amounts of shade, you could make ice in the shade I am throwing. This is an example of an exchange that happened just a few days ago in class. It’s probably worth mentioning that the individual conversing with me had just prior to this interaction made several extremely sexist remarks, and throws every kind of slur around like it’s his own personal nerf football. So I wasn’t exactly pleased to be talking to him.
Classmate: Your hair is very colourful.
Angelina: Very observant.
Classmate: You don’t even say thank you?
Angelina: For what?
Classmate: Complimenting you!
Angelina: You didn’t. You said my hair was colourful. It is colourful. Even if it wasn’t intended positively you could have said my hair is colourful. You may as well have said ‘You have a nose’ or ‘You have two arms.’ The sky is blue. I’m not complimenting the sky right now.
Classmate: See if I ever compliment you again!
Angelina: Oh no, what ever will I do without your validation?
So in summation, I think that if you just consider about what you’re saying, it’ll probably be alright. Both of the things you’ve listed sound very nice if you ask me! Even when people shout “Nice hair!” at me, I say thank you. But keep in mind, not everyone is comfortable with being approached in public. So if they don’t respond or they aren’t happy, don’t take it too personally. Just respect their space.
p.s. it’s just makeup!
Yes, I always let my hair air dry, whether it’s in curlers or braids or just down. The only time my hair gets near a blowdryer is when I’m getting my hair cut/styled, as I did today. ♡
My favourite hairspray is got2b’s 2 Sexy Voluptuous Volume Hairspray! It’s my tried and true golden can of magic. I love it.
I love your hair here! I can't seem to be able to do victory rolls. Any tips?
Victory rolls are easiest to do if you have medium length and thick hair. I have long, thin hair, so it takes quite a bit of work, but as you can see it’s doable. I suggest curling your hair prior to starting out, either with rollers or a curling or straightening iron. It’ll be even easier to style if your hair is dirty. Don’t expect them to look great the first time, generally you might have to style each roll more than once to get it to look right, and then you’ll have to play with it and pin it until it’s suited to your tastes. There are lots of really fabulous tutorials on youtube so I suggest taking a quick peek there as well.
I, like many other girls, do not have a specific recipe! And that’s how it should be. I eyeball it every time. Pour lots of conditioner or toner in a bowl, and add little bits of dye and mix them in. Do that until you get the colour you want! It’s really not rocket science. :)
Generally I just do the roots! My hair is perma-pink, the two-three months I go between bleaching my hair I don’t dye my hair pink at all and the colour never wanes or fades. To be honest I’m not sure if I could really get rid of it if I wanted to.
How many jars of special effects/manic panic does it take to do the whole length of your hair? Manic panic jars are so tiny!
Do you use lots and lots of hair dye or do you mix it with conditioner to make it last longer?
I definitely mix it with conditioner sweets! It takes me quite some time to use up a whole jar of dye.
please recommended/tell us whichever conditioner/protectants are working so amazingly.
Here’s the deal.
I would never, EVER, tell you to buy a product unless I was satisfied with the results it produced. In the past I have recommended products- got2B’s Sexy Voluptuous Volume Hairspray, Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara, as well as different makeup and skincare lines. I feel good recommending these products because I’ve bought them more than once, and they haven’t let me down.
I don’t feel comfortable telling you the products I use, because
1). I rarely use the same products from one day to the next
2). I have never liked a product enough to buy it again
If I DO find a product I like, I am quick to share it with all of my followers, because I genuinely want them to reap the benefits I have discovered. I know a lot of girls struggle with dry, damaged hair as I do, so I want to help this community of girls through my personal experience. It would not benefit these girls to tell them to buy products just because I buy them. It would benefit them to inform them on products that I have been impressed with.
I hope that clears things up a little.
This is how my hair looked immediately after removing the Curlformers. It is probably worth mentioning that they did not stay this nice for long.
I have mixed feelings about them. I don’t know. I need to go pick up another pack so that I have the proper sizes for my hair and then I will write a proper review.
