Bored with your dark brown hair and fancy going platinum at home? It can be done! However, the first thing I want to make VERY CLEAR is this is a long, tiring and expensive process! Unfortunately there is no way to make your hair go from dark brown to blonde overnight. So if you think this isn't a colour you want to stick to or wouldn't mind staying your current colour, then I wouldn't recommend trying to go blonde. This is a commitment and no matter how you do it, you will walk away with more damage then you started with. The second thing I will tell you is that it takes a lot of upkeep and maintenance. For example: Bleaching your roots possibly more than once every few months, toning and conditioning your hair regularly. If you think this is too much to add to your routine, don't go blonde.
Once upon a time, women actually would take real irons to their hair as a way to get that straight, sleek look people adore. Obviously, this would cause hair to get seriously damaged, with some women literally burning their hair to a crisp.
Hairbrushes. They just aren’t something I think about until I’m actually brushing my hair. Am I alone in this? I certainly do not rely on my brush to smooth all the frizz. That heavy duty lifting power belongs to the expensive creams, sprays, and the straightening iron. I don’t replace my hairbrush on a regular, or even yearly, basis (again, just me?). It’s a trusted beauty tool that should detangle my hair and pull it as taught as possible as I blow dry. Its durability is taken for granted until that inevitable day when it breaks! Or in my case, the brush flies off the literal handle and crashes into the bathroom mirror while I’m in the middle of blowdrying my super long, super thick, super curly hair. Suddenly, hairbrushes are all I can think about and an item I have to replace immediately. I cannot go without it. It’s like when your air conditioner goes out in the middle of summer and you live in Texas.
Charcoal is one the newest trends in skincare recently, and you can find it as an ingredient in practically any product on the market right now. Because of its intense ability to remove dirt and oil, it makes for a great addition to your skincare routine.
Let’s talk about dark lipstick. Over the past year, I’ve become more interested in actually partaking in the social norms of being a girl. By social norms, I’m referring to styling my hair, creating fashion combinations that aren’t just t shirts and jeans every single day, and wearing more noticeable make up. I’ve liked this one tube of lip gloss an awful lot since the summer. It was one my mom didn’t use anymore and had somehow ended up in my stage make up bag. After wearing it for Anything Goes, I found that I actually really liked the color. I would wear it more often, and if I was seeing someone I wanted to impress, you could bet that lip gloss was in my pocket.
Ever since I was young, I've loved art and I consider myself an artist. I have always been mesmerized by tattoos and couldn't wait to cover my body in them.
Monday morning in a two bedroom apartment in Leeds and it is slap bang in the middle of one of the coldest winters the United Kingdom has faced in over 80 years. I wake from the the peacefulness of my dreams, where I was probably re-enacting my earlier years in the Motherland. Where I would run around with no care in the world, as the glow and warmth of the sun would slowly descend just over our shoulders. Out of the warmth of my dreams and in to a cloud of my own breaths condensation, I attempt to adjust to this new environment I found myself in.
