Hey everyone =)
I'm starting a new series on my blog! =) It's going to be all about my hair. I dyed my hair purple two weeks ago and also got bangs so it's a whole new experience for me to even trim my own fringe, not washing my hair all the time and so on. In these blogposts I'll be telling you more about my journey with purple hair! =) I'll definitely also do hair tutorials/vlogs =)
I decided to do an article I personally miss on the internet =) Before I washed my purple hair for the very first time, I was super nervous because I was scared a great deal of the color would wash out and I'll be the weirdest blonde with purplish undertone :D So I was looking for information about what happens to the hair after the first wash. Since I didn't really find what I was looking for, I hope this blogpost will help you if you're looking for this kind of stuff =)
Before I start, I just want to say, that I washed my hair 7 days after being at the salon. I know it may gross someone out, it definitely would gross me out like a year ago :D My hair used to be super greasy and there were even times when I washed it every day. Before I bleached my hair and dyed it purple, I tried to wash my hair as little as possible which was usually every other day. My third day was usually just too unacceptable and impossible to mask with some kind of a hair style. Yucky, greasy hair. I've been in a love-hate relationship (mostly hate) with dry shampoos so that wouldn't solve my third day problem.
Now that my hair was bleached I think it got dried a bit and so I think that's why it lasted the whole week.
I was very curious (but also super scared!) to wash the hair and see if it would last for another week. I thought at the salon they used some extra awesome shampoos and stuff on my hair that cleaned it sooo perfectly and I wouldn't be able to do that at home.
Have you watched my vlog about how I got my purple hair? You'll also find pics how it looked like before washing =)
WHAT I USED TO WASH IT:
I had just bought a new shampoo and a conditioner because I had some cheap junk at home that I was sick of and I didn't really feel like it cleaned my hair all that well. I bought the Aussie shampoo and conditioner and also the 3 minute miracle.
I only used the shampoo and the conditioner and decided to skip the 3 minute miracle because I was afraid to expose my hair to too much water :D
HOW I WASHED IT:
I made sure I didn't do any harsh movements and rub in the products extra gently. I also used the coolest water I could bear. I mostly concentrated on my roots because that's where I had the most of the hair spray I sprayed in during the whole week.
This is how the hair looked like when I dried it and styled it. I'm thinking of doing a video on my "hair routine" because it's a lot different from my regular "no-routine" that I had before :D
As you can see, the parts that were more reddish got washed out a bit more. But the parts with the bright purple stayed very vibrant even after the first wash. I was pleasantly surprised =) My hair felt SUPER smooth and sleek AND it smelled awesome for like 4-5 days :D The Aussie shampoo smells like a gum. I know that's not something everyone will like and I'm not always that crazy about strong smells but this is just soooo awesome! :D And the fact that the smell lasted for such a long time is just impressive when you don't wash your hair that often! =)
And yep, it lasted for another whole week :D I'll do a post with the second wash hair next week =)
Hope you liked this!
Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see in this series =)
Have a lovely day ^_^
