My Hair Colour Story Throughout The Years

It's been over a year since I last did something fun with my hair so I thought I would run through my hair colour story before i do something crazy or loos track of what i look like!

So here is a picture gallery of my hair colours over the years.

My professionally dyed hair started with with highlights in Summer 2014 on my natural/dyed hair. It was my first blonde adventure and at the time my hairdresser said 
"I bet you go full blonde next time - everyone does". 
I adored my highlighted hair from June 2014 - September 2014 I honestly didn't realise how much I loved it until I look back on those pictures above from a couple of years ago.

The next time I had a whole head of blonde done. (Yup my hairdresser was right.) 
I liked it, at first but my hair turned VERY orange after the first few weeks.
 Mr previous hair colours since I first ever dyed my hair at about 14 years old 
have been all sorts of reds and red-Browns and my natural colour (what I see of it at the roots every now and then) is a deep brown. So honestly the tones that ran through 
my bleached blonde hair where so ginger 
I could give a natural ginger a run for their money!

Of course being a newbie of fake blonde I had no idea there was special toning treatments that allowed you to make it the perfect bleached white blonde that I was after, and so after a month and a half as a blonde/ginger and upon the winter season approaching (people always seem to get dark hair in the winter?) I got my hairdresser back to chuck some reds back over it which actually came out really pretty since we did four different 
colours with bits of purple and some browns.

The only thing after all of this my hair was FRAZZLED. 

Within the space of 2 months I had been a full bleached blonde and then 
a full head of red. I have quite thin hair follicles and they really don't do well with damaging treatments and dry out really easily (split-end-central!) 
So from here it took me about a year of pampering 
admittedly there was an occasional box dye, mostly reds for the whole year -
 to get my hair to a point where I'm happy to attack it with drying and damaging treatments again.

So, that's the story of my hair journey across the years so far... i wonder what i might have next!

Much Love
