September 16, 2012


I diy-ed my own hair over the weekends of course with the help of my patient hubby. Yes, I was bored and a tiny bit crazy. Tongue-in-cheek. Ombre dipdyeing is seen everywhere and anywhere on celebrities, fashionistas and bloggers. So why not give it a go? If you haven't realised, it is never easy to achieve the lighter tones of purples on asian brown hair like mine. Guess this is the best it can get :)  
On the side note, I will be going over my comments and write to each of you soon as soon as I'm done with this post. 

PART 2 // Ash + Purple Color Dye on bleached hair //
Turn out darker than expected. You will notice there are some evenness at the break line. 
Anyways, it ain't meant to be perfect when it comes to dip dyeing. Just go with the flow. 
I was taking this shot while doing my laundry btw. That explains the bag in the scene. Lol.
PART 1 // Bleaching Powder + Peroxide //
40 mins to achieve these pale yellow base tones. Do it moderately as it is quite damaging to the hair cells. 
I do need some serious treatments after this. 

Everything for less than USD25. Salon would have cost triple more.

oh, I already saw it in Facebook and pretty much knew you were going to make that post too ;)
purple is definitely something pretty crazy - you're right about that! for how long does it last btw?
and I must say I really like the part 1 variant too. awesome contrast!
I also followed the dip dyed trend several weeks ago and got dark two-toned ends :P
