So most of you would know what my hair looks like. If not let me remind you...
I quite like it, obviously, but it's quite high maintenance.
Firstly, there is the regrowth which needs to be bleached up and then dyed at least every six weeks.
The bleaching takes at least an hour, then a toner (aka colour) is thrown on for 10minutes or so.
When I get my hair done we only ever bleach the roots. This helps to minimise the damage to all of my hair. So instead of drying out all of my hair over and over again causing quite a lot of damage we are causing minimal damage. My hairdresser assures me that my hair is actually quite healthy even with the amount of colouring it takes because we are only ever bleaching the roots.
The colour fades out quite quickly. Actually, for fudge hair dye it does last quite a while, but it generally needs to be done along with my regrowth. While it does fade in those six weeks I am lucky that it fades to a lovely pastel shade that I quite like. But it's nothing like the vibrant colours that shine after being freshly dyed.
Then there's the fringe. It's a new addition to my hair and while I love it, I haven't quite gotten the knack for styling it.
also, yep, you guessed it, being a longer fringe it needs to be cut quite regularly as it doesn't take long for it to be in my eyes.
All of this means, as I said, I am getting my hair done at least every six weeks. I am also growing my hair. My hairdresser has advised that you don't necessarily need a trim every six weeks of your ends as long as they are maintained. We play this part be ear. If there are no split ends we leave it, otherwise we do a tidy up.
How often do you visit with your hairdresser?
Is your hair high maintenance?
Any tips for someone wanting to help their hair to grow faster?
