Braids | The Simple Plait.

Today's post is going to be a simple post. As I've recently dyed my hair after a hair colouring disaster (yes, I know I've talked about this a lot!) I've been experimenting with different hairstyles. I'm taking advantage of not having roots too! This hair style is perfect as is just so pretty and it keep my fringe on my face. All I do is pull my hair back and plait it, simple as that! Because I've just got it bleached all over, I'm going to wash it a lot less over next couple of weeks so all the natural oils in my hair can come back. Braids and up do's are perfect for disguising greasy hair and simple braids can add so much to your overall look. I love dutch, french and waterfall braids. The are quite tricky to achieve though and sadly take some practise!

As you can see my hair still has a lot of brass and ugly yellow tones in it but this will hopefully be sorted out after my next hairdressing appointment. It's such a hassel having blonde hair because it is such a long process to get the perfect, true blonde. It's been a long time coming to say the least! I'm really thinking about getting it darker because my sister Rachel has just had her hair dyed darker and it looks so beautiful! Post coming soon with photographs! She's still adjusting to it but I think it looks perfect. The blonde I have at the moment seems really unmanageable!

 you ever like experimenting with hairstyles?

  1. Have you tried using silver shampoo? It can get the brassy tones out and works really well! Make sure you condition loads after though! :) xx

    1. That's great advice, I have used a silver shampoo and it did get rid of some the yellow but it unfortunately needs more peroxide on it to lighten it up! I love using the silver shampoos though. They help a lot!

  15. I actually really love your hair - the 'brassy tones' look more golden than anything, to me, so I really don't think you've got anything to be self-conscious of! Love the braid, though xx
