hair & beauty

Pink and Yellow

I had no plans of bleaching my hair last night. The plan was to wait until next weekend so Tara and/or Tin could help me. My Sunday night was supposed to consist of a movie (I took my mom to see Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank, which I already saw a couple of weeks ago at UP; it’s worth watching again) before meeting up with friends at Moonleaf. Unfortunately, my mom and I didn’t make it to the 750pm screening and Moonleaf was already closing by the time the movie ended. Bored and done going through The Equestrian Corner clothing‘s catalog, I decided to just fix my roots once and for all.

I thought a pack of powder bleach would be enough but boy oh boy, was I wrong. Originally, I wanted to get rid of the (faded) Burgundy Wine I had been sporting since May and replace it with Blood Red. That obviously did not happen since I ran out of bleach* and it was already two in the morning when my hair dried completely.

(I didn’t have any light gray dye so I was expecting a brassy bleach job.)

The lighting in these photos were terrible so I edited them. The blonde isn’t that pale/golden IRL.

I know it’s a mess but I quite like it! Admittedly, the lower part is in an even more tragic state but I haven’t been wearing my hair down these days anyway (can’t risk looking like I have a mullet!). I think I’ll keep this around for a week. I just love how the Burgundy Wine faded into a pink after being lightly bleached!

An improvement from this, noh?

And just because— another photo of Cowbitty. I ADORE him. He is such a sweet and nice little boy. Unsurprisingly, the (miserable) lady next door (who lives with her 3 children) has been stirring up trouble over him (and fabricating BS, too. Oh, I can write the longest rant about this). Good thing our landlord isn’t very fond of them, hah. Two-faced, rude, petty neighbors are the worst kind.

*I was told that if you’re running low on bleach powder, you can just add more developer and leave it in longer. I’m keeping this in mind for next time.

    Yes! These are the colors that I like for your hair. I prfer it over the red one. Keep this one forever!

    And for a second, I thought you cut all your hair off in that first picture.
