Things That Have Made Me Happy Recently | Getting Our Hair Dyed!

We both got our hair dyed last Monday and I finally feel like my hair is looking lighter after dying it black a few months ago (my biggest mistake ever!!) I'm gradually getting my hair dyed blonde again and I've had a few more highlights put through it. I love that feeling of freshly dyed hair with no roots. I finally feel like me again. Going over to the dark side wasn't me so I really love getting my hair lighter. The condition is awful though. It's so knotty and dry but I think a few deep conditioning hair masks will do the trick :)

Leah's gorgeous hair is looking so stunning. I'm so jealous. It's still got a few brassy/ginger bits in still after a small hair disaster a couple of months ago (we're not lucky with hair dying, haha) but thankfully we are really pleased!

Apart from getting our hair dyed we also spent our 18th birthday money on buying a new guitar and bass so we've been practising a lot :) and we're going to a drum lesson on tomorrow! Oh my God, so scared but hopefully worth it! 

Hope you all have a lovely week! 
Rachel, x

  7. Both of you have beautiful hair! It looks so thick and healthy even if it doesn't feel it :) you should try out organix, their coconut shampoo, keratin conditioner and coconut oil weightless spray did WONDERS for my dry dead over bleached hair now it's so healthy and smooth! Their products aren't cheap but they honestly work AND last so so long as you don't need a lot of product with each wash!

    1. You are so lovely, thank you El! I'll definately try those products out! I'm currently sitting here with a bleach london conditioner on so I'm seeing how it goes! You hair looks gorgeous. x x

  8. Well done on getting the black out. I bet that has been a bit of a nightmare.
    I'm trying to get red out of my hair now after 6 years, without bleaching so I'm at that in-between stage right now, it's so tough not to just out more and more colour in your hair.
    I'm sure your hair condition will improve quickly, there are so many lovely products to use these days :)
