How many times have I dyed my hair!?
I kinda lost count tbh. But i'm very sure it is not more than 10 times LOL. Thing is, I really regret dyeing my hair red, twice. Now I have trouble getting rid of the red base. I tried dyeing brown after that (sort of bleached my hair but the hair stylist told me it was only the first level of bleach so it didn't quite kill my hair), but it just won't work. Ofcourse, I was advised to do several bleachings before dyeing another colour onto my hair in order to get rid of the red base. But I foresee my hair looking like a bundle of hay if I were to do that and that's why I REGRET dyeing it red in the first place! OMG T.T
Back when I was only 18 and I still refuse to dye my hair because I knew the maintenance would be tedious. Like, re-dyeing once the root is out and going for hair treatments (I've never been to one btw because i'm too broke wth). I tried dip-dye in copper brown but it was a failure 'cause I didn't bleach it. So it was only obvious under sunlight.
Back when I was only 19. It was my first time dyeing and I remembered doing it myself with Liese bubble hair-dye and it was pretty damn satisfying because the colour turned out to be pretty obvious even in picture. I chose Jewel Pink.
Then I dyed my hair brown when I was 20. Twice, if i'm not mistaken. *Edit* Decided to look back at my old albums and I noticed I dyed brown shades about 3-4 times, which I don't even remember LOL.
So anyway, I've tried medium golden brown, copper, chestnut brown and light brown.
My first time dyeing red. I have alwaaaaaays wanted to dye my hair red 'cause I really think it will suit me and my personality. So I itchy hand DIY again. This time with L'oreal. And boy was I extremely satisfied with the outcome! Look at that rednesssssss <3
And then this was the second time I dyed my hair in wine red, somewhere in September 2015. That's when I know I screwed up because I wouldn't be able to dye any other colour unless I bleaaaach it.
I cut it veryyyy short at that time somewhere in Oct 2015 'cause I thought of trying something new since I've always been in my comfort zone (with long hair).
I dyed brown and did an under-dye in purple for 2016's CNY. And I cut it even shorter. I almost regret it, but a lot of people said I look really fresh in it so it was fine lol.
My latest hair colour as of Nov 2016.
Question is, is it worth it? Do I have to go to that extent (bleaching, spending tonnes of money to do treatment) just to change my hair colour?
Or should I live with this ugly hair and slowly cut them off? So I can go back to my original hair colour? Omg T__T
Signing off, with sadness TT
