I'm a natural redhead, but every summer my hair gets a little lighter in the sun. I suppose that's fine, but with my pale skin it makes me look very washed out, plus I find it harder to make my makeup and wardrobe fit my new slightly-more-blonde hair. I've dabbled with Henna in the past and loved the results but hated the commitment, and recently decided that I wanted to mimic the colour but have a low maintenance technique. Recently I tried a different method with a few products from Superdrug, and got gorgeous warm copper tones in my hair in about twenty minutes, and with considerably less effort than using Henna. I thought I'd share how I did it.
I haven't dabbled with hair straighteners for years - I used them religiously back in High School, but since then I've embraced a bigger, curlier styler closer to my natural waves. When Irresistible Me reached out to me and asked if I'd like to try their tourmaline flat iron*, I was very keen to try them out to see if I could use them to try a different kind of look. I'm happy to report that hair straighteners have definitely upped their game since my school days.
Yet another hair update today! I've done something I've been thinking of doing for a while and cut my hair to shoulder length. In terms of overall length this is only about two inches shorter than it actually was but I think it looks so different - I feel like I definitely have mid-length hair now whereas before I could have got away with calling it long.
I don't know if it's the colder weather making my hair dry, or the DIY ombre I did a few months ago (probably the latter) but recently my hair has felt damaged and I'm finding it harder to make it look decent. I've tried leaving coconut oil overnight a few times which normally does the trick, but I think my hair is due for a chop.
