You Can’t Live Without H2o

A human can go for more than three weeks without food (Mahatma Gandhi survived 21 days of complete starvation), but water is a different story. At least 60% of the adult body is made of it and every living cell in the body needs it to keep functioning. So there you have it, you cannot survive without water…..Micellar water that is!

Since I have gone purple/lilac I have had a few requests and comments on how I did it and if I could blog it, so here you go! I will try my best to explain exactly how I achieved my colour but please bear in mind I am no expert, I have used trial and error but also done lots of research to get to the colour I want. I have a brilliant hairdresser that does the best job and totally saved me when I had a huge hair nightmare in early 2014. My hair has changed quite a bit since then – it went from down past my belly button to above my shoulders and from dark (I had to do this unfortunately due to the hair disaster I had) to a dirty blonde and gradually back to bright ashy blonde. If you want to learn about how I did my hair and got it this fab purple/lilac shade then click read more below.

After going through a colour nightmare last year I unfortunately had to go an all over dark colour to fix the mess and have my healthy previously uncoloured long locks chopped off, it was traumatic to say the least. A year down the line and it is getting there on the growing front and is finally the bright blonde colour I want it to be thanks to an awesome hairdresser. I have had a couple of big chops last year and again this Jan/Feb (they were much needed after what my hair had been through) but now I am back to small trims as I want it back to it’s original long length again. It also has bleach in it now as I love it to be an ashy blonde which means I need to be extra careful with how I treat it. I got the chance to try out some amazing TIGI products thanks to the lovely people at ASOS (thank you Lindsey!). I am 100% sold on these products! They have made a world of difference to my hair after such a short amount of use.
