Yes. Winter gloom has finally melted. I’ve been itching to play with my hair for a while now, and knowing with shoots I can’t do anything too drastic, I opted for some subtle ombré (the cool kids are calling it sombre…). Whatever you want to call it, it feels good to lighten up. The winter layers are gone, and a touch of blonde was just the thing to pick up my look for spring.
I usually do a single process in natural dark brown at home- nothing crazy, so it never really damaged my hair. I did notice after the foiling, my hair was a bit dry. And with warm weather and beaches on the way, I needed a new plan of attack.
I picked up the Lux Super Damage Repair system at Matsumoto for super cheap- like 700 yen? It’s the typical hair pack: wash, put in, let it sit for a few minutes and rinse. After day one, texture immediately felt better. The highlights still look dry to me, so we’ll see how it looks at the end of the week when I’ve done the whole 4-day she-bang.
I’ve also stopped washing my hair every day. I still rinse it and condition, but the word on the street is that daily surfactants overly strip your hair (makes total sense.)
Having super dark hair for the better part of a decade, even this subtle change feels pretty drastic… But I’m liking it so far. It’s fitting my lighter, brighter, healthier mood these days. We’ll see how light I go by summer!
