Happy New Year, Happy 2014: Changing my hair, and a few other things

I think ever year we all make a resolutions to do better and to make changes. Lately I have wanted a change so, I decided to change my hair and give myself a new look.

Thats it, that the new change to my growing hair. I have to say I am so in love with it. I cut my hair a few months ago 3 inches off and it grew back withing 3 months.

How I achieve this colour:

I search months for a hair stylist and although I love Toronto, I am a perfection and wanted my hair done right. No one has touched my hair in years, it's just something I wont allow anyone to do. I guess bad experiences can do that to you. My hair has always been natural, over the years I found the only thing I gained from not knowing my hair was it being damage in the hands of another. So I was happy to go on this journey and learn about my hair and self.

1. I washed my hair out a few days before with conditioner to remove the build up left from my three month braid installation.

Cantu shea leave in
steaming cap
argan oil

2. I sectioned my hair in four sections (deciding on whether I wanted an ombre look or to do the whole head. Since I only brought one box I decided to do an ombre look which I am happy I did.

3. Once I applied the colour to most of the ends of my hair up through my shaft, I let it sit for 30 mintues and then another 15 minutes with the steam cap. I must admit I was not sure how bright or how dull the results would be. This was my first time colouring my hair in years. I think I was 16 when I tired a very dark brown colour on my hair.

4. I washed the colour out of my head with cool water (please don't use hot water) It makes such a difference.
-make sure all the colour is out of your head
I then shampoo just to remove an build up but I used a small amount, I then deep conditioned and rinse.

5. To achieve the style present:
- blow dry hair on cool setting
-braid hair using your styling products
-used perm rods to achieve curled ends

And Voila that's it. I couldn't be more happier with the results.
