The Color Chronicles: Road to Mermaid Hair, Part II Preview

Well, I did it. After having my hair straight for about three and a half weeks, I HAD to wash it. I thought that bleaching my hair would work better and be a little easier on my straight hair, so I bought a couple of Manic Panic Flash Lightning (with 30 developer) kits and went to town. I did not bleach the top of my hair on purpose – I don’t really like how very light roots look on me, and I also figured that if I ruin my hair, I’ll still have a few inches! Here are the results:

I like it! I’m still getting used to having my hair so light, but I think I did a pretty good job, especially for never having bleached my whole head before. Also, I did get to film some of my bleaching experience, so stay tuned for a video. Last night, I did do a couple of Periscope broadcasts about the bleaching process, so check me out @QFTPC on there.

Products Used:

  • Manic Panic Flash Lightning Kit (30 Developer)
  • Camille Rose Sweet Ginger Cleansing Rinse (to wash my hair after I rinsed the bleach)
  • Curl Junkie Repair Me! (Protein treatment)
  • Curl Junkie Curl Rehab (Overnight deep condition)

My other Manic Panic dyes are on the way to me right now, but I think I’m going to play with my blonde hair for a bit before I dye it again. I also ordered Olaplex No. 3, which is a reconstructing treatment used on processed hair. Stay tuned, lovies! xoxo
