Purple!!! So, I got tired of waiting for payday, and decided to go pastel purple with a couple of different products than the norm. Basically things I had left over at my house. First I used "Jazzing" by Clairolpro in the shade of 'Icicle' and added about 45 drops of a red/gold corrector. I let that sit under a bag with heat from a hair dryer for 30 minutes so the color would be a little longer lasting. This has been through one good washing since I dyed it. Also, I am having a ball with my new hair products, some clay and some wax. Go purple power!

Woohoo! I finally got some proper product and got some texture into this super short hairstyle :) I used hair wax and hair putty. Once that was all mixed into my hair fairly evenly, I grabbed lock sized bits of hair and twisted. Then I repeated the process all over my hair. After that I flattened my fringe and voila! Also, I used 'Shimmer lights' shampoo and conditioner on my crown and fringe, letting the shampoo sit on my hair for about 15 minutes. I think just one more soaking on my bangs area and all my hair will be the color I want (a white-ish/silver/with a lavender sheen). Yay!

So today, after some great suggestions by the community here, I was able to get my hair to do mini spikes :) Before I did this, I did another 20 minutes soak of the Shimmer Lights shampoo, and then a 5 minute soak of the Shimmer Lights conditioner (Shimmer Lights shampoo and conditioner are both made by Clairol). I still have a couple of golden strands, dang it! For the mini spikes I put a little blue tinted gel and some straightening serum. I can't wait to get some better hair products just for a different texture and all, but that will have to wait until payday, lol.

Here is a photograph of my hair after one treatment of toner shampoo and conditioner. The type of shampoo and conditioner is called 'Shimmer Lights' by Clairol and I left the conditioner on for about 3-5 minutes in the shower. The results = slightly less gold/yellow tones than right after the bleaching (previous photo).

I just went from a black box dye to this bleached blonde this past week. I first used ColorZap by L'oreal to strip the color. A few days later I used another color stripper called ColorFix by One N Only, and then did my first bleaching with Kaleidoscope Bleaching Powder and a 30 Volume developer. Two days after I bleached it for the last time with the same bleaching powder and developer. That same day I got my hair cut to take off the tips that didn't process as well as the roots. This is my result without a toner. The only product in my hair is Frizz Ease.
