#94 (Healthy-hair talk aka my journey back to blonde)

Hellooooooo

me again!!

thank you everyone who told me on my tumblr that they enjoy reading my blog posts ヾ(´・ω・`)

And also on my latest blogpost i got so many positive comments on that blonde wig, so that I decided to dye my hair back to blonde again!! I had that in mind for a long time already but I didn't dare to do it because bleaching isn't really the best thing for your hair...

Aaah that wasn't easy, since my hair was reddish before (; ̄ェ ̄)
I decided to consult my hairdresser and together we found a solution for the problem.

My hair used to be something like this color before we started bleaching


Since my hair grew long and i didn't want to cut it, i searched for a solution to bleach without a lot damage. 

We decided to bleach it only a little bit, then wait for a month and repeat it. 

We used 1,9% H2O2 and bleaching powder and left it in for about 1 hour.
Normally, for bleaching your hair you use up to 6% but that's much more aggressive and bad for your hair. So if you use 1,9% and just leave it in longer, it almost has the same effect as 3% or 6% left in for half an hour. (but that's just what my hairdresser told me, i don't really have a clue myself)

to get a more even result, my hairdresser first applied the bleach onto the length where the red was stronger, and then did the roots later. Because otherwise my roots would have been much lighter than the rest and it looks really stupid. 

We applied a repair hair mask after that since the hair was very dry. 

It wasn't as light as i wanted it to be but I was satisfied so far. I knew it would get lighter later on. 
It looked something like this maybe a little bit more orange in normal light. more like the gif down there. 



It would be a lie to say my hair wasn't damaged after that. It was! but I found a good thing that made it better. A lot better!!

The thing is called "Coppola Keratin Complex Infusion" and it is keratin treatment, that you put into your hair after washing. 
It's a little bit expensive but I heard good things about it so I gave it a try. And let me tell you, it worked WONDERS. my hair looked and felt a lot better after a few times of using the stuff. 

This is what it looks like 



The old version had a see through bottle so you could see the pink stuff inside, the new one is white. Mine looks like the second one but sometimes you can still get the one above. 

The serum is pink and looks like cream. You apply it into dry hair and then blow-dry your hair. It's important to use HEAT, because this way it kinda melts into your hair. 

I don't know how it actually works but it does! 
this is what the official homepage says about it:
Keratin Complex Infusion is a unique formulation with advanced infusion technology. This high Ph replenisher automatically opens the cuticle and enters to infuse Keratin proteins and emollients into the hair. Its deep penetrating action repairs and revitalizes hair during blow drying or ironing and closes the cuticle to entrap nourishment. Optimized for use as a daily maintenance to the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Natural Keratin Treatment.
My hair was in good condition after a month. Even the hairdresser was surprised. 
I ordered the keratin complex infusion on amazon.

Last thursday we bleached my hair again and I ordered new clip-in extensions!

Yesterday I was invited to BBQ and my best friend Julia styled my hair. 



TA-DA!!! 

I'm a barbie girl again. 

It's still a little bit yellowish on some parts but I can fix that with silver shampoo.

Also I got the results of my exams and I did really well this term! all the studying was worth it! 
I achieved an A in japanese!

I started watching the Anime "Shingeki no Kyojin" and i can really recommend it. I love it!

In two days (on monday) I'm flying to Japan with my dad!
I really want to blog more this time but maybe i'll be lazy so definitely check out my twitter and instagram for updates and pictures!
My nickname is hiki0318 on both platforms. 

See you!!
