Life’s too short for boring hair

-quote from Hair Geek PH

Ever since my operation, my life’s been pretty boring. I haven’t been able to do activities like hiking or running. So, to make my life exciting, I decided to color my hair.

But this isn’t the first time I had it colored. Last April 4, Ate Rayji sort of hired her friend to do our hair from bleaching to dyeing while I purchased the dyes from DIY Hair PH.

They’re here! Can’t wait to color my hair! Thanks, @diyhairph! 👱👵👧👩

The bleaching kits were purchased from Hair Geek PH since I discovered they’re HQ is just near Teacher’s Village. I think a kit costs 150.

Bleaching one’s hair is really tedious. Or maybe the bleach we had wasn’t the good kind. It was powdery(even when the packaging said “dust-free”) and was hard to rinse off.

Here’s how it looked like while I was waiting for an hour for the dye to set in.

Our hair turned out to be dark orange red and I really liked it! Cons? My bath towel got stains every time I showered. hahaha! And I had to take extra care for it considering that curly hair was already hard to maintain.

 

After more than a month, it started to fade until it’s just orange.

So, I purchased another dye. This time, blueee!

And I started mixing the bleach myself. This time, it was really a DIY experience.

Bleaching my own hair was really hard especially when trying to reach for the back part of it. And I had to be careful not to put bleach on my face or upper part. Really difficult, tiring for the arms. OH AND THEY GAVE ME SURGICAL GLOVES INSTEAD OF PLASTIC GLOVES so it had so much friction!!!  but it’s okay, i’ve forgiven them

I wasn't able to get rid of the color 100%

I asked Ate Rayji to dye my hair coz I gave up. hahaha. And she got frustrated with the rubber gloves, she decided to just do it with her bare hands.

 

lololol
lololol

Here’s how it looked like after rinsing it. I think the bleach didn’t do much effect.

To my surprise the next day, I woke up with no blue hair! hahaha. The remaining orange mixed with blue resulted to this blue green color which really looks nice under the sun.

Maybe in a month or two, I’ll be able to achieve the blue hair I want. 😂
