    Literally going through the same thing with newly red hair- i'm washing my hair a lot less just because it's so annoying having to redye it every time I wash my hair (dry shampoo is a godsend!)

    Katie- fringe looks amazalangalang! (:

    hey, stay young, and invincible, because we know just who we are

    Katie, the fringe suits you so much! I'd love a full fringe but I really don't think I'd suit it after seeing myself with a side fringe for so long.

    Still really impressed with the condition of my hair after henna'ing. Definitely going to top it up in a few weeks, maybe even next week if I get a chance to pop into town to buy some more. Still debating whether to ditch the red dye completely and stick with the henna colour...decisions

    Thanks everyone, I'm loving it! Forgot how quickly full fringes look greasy though

    Undercut needs a trim. Short enough that it's not scruffy, and easy to wash blood out of (planning for the conch punch lol) but not so short that I get brainfreeze walking down the road.

    I also want to dye it again but I'm not sure whether to do it now, before the punch, or wait til after initial healing stages plus christmas and family visits etc. Opinions? I'd be aiming for turquoise.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Can anyone answer me a question.
    I have my hair highlighted. I'm all blonde but go get my roots done every month.
    What I wanna know is does anyone else bleach their hair and my question to them will be how do you if you do. Acheive that white blonde look.
    I've been using redken blonde glam platinum enhancer which is meant to take away yellows brassy tones and it does slightly but too much use gives me hints of purple.

    my hair is blonde but I love that white look and want to acheive it healthy
    Blondie piercings
    6x lobes, 18mm stretch. Tongue. Side lip. Surface wrist. 4x hip dermal anchors. Inverse navel.
    Retired. Nostril 2x. Central lower lip.

    Have you noticed when your told your not suited to a piercing it makes you want it even more!!??

    White blonde hair, in the long run, just isn't that healthy. I had white blonde hair for years.

    Pretty much what I was going to say, no such thing as healthy white blonde hair, especially if it's home done. You may be better off seeking some very specialist advice on a hair forum like the salongeek or similar but don't ask directly unless you're ready to pretend you're a hairdresser as it's for professionals. Getting high end quality salon stuff, knowing your own hair very well and following excellent salon style techniques will assist you to get there in 1 or 2 steps with absolute damage limitation, I couldn't give you all that info off the top of my head and methods move fast in that industry plus you'd have to try and source the stuff from ebay or something as salon retailers will want proof you're a pro.

    Aside from that you can do it in long drawn out stages which are explained in a tutorial on beeuniques and/or the crazy hair forums but they're not ideal for roots as you'd be in a constant battle of bleaching all the time as it's a gradual process.

    My hair is naturally light blonde (around about the colour it is now actually!) so I get to proper, pure white blonde bleaching just once and even I eventually had to give up the white blonde for the sake of my hair in general. It's the only reason I no longer have white blonde hair.

    Can't say I blame you, it's probably one of the most destructive things you can do to your hair! Most dressers will try and talk people out of it and/or refuse if they're anything past mid/light brown.
