At the beginning of my experiments with hair, I realized that being red, brunette, brown or blond is a little less than a blonde of light blond type. With such hair, my appearance matched my inner state.
There was enough free time after work, I was not married and did not plan children. I could afford to go to beauty salons, both in time frames and in material ones. Only after hair dyeing after some time became even weaker and dry.
Life flows – life changes
When I got married and my husband and I had a house, the question of financial resources for the repair of an apartment became acute. We learned to save a lot. Hair dyeing in the salon was an expensive event for me and I decided to look for other options.
Since my hair is thin and dry, they required a gentle coloring, and my cousin was just fascinated by the hair coloring for herself and friends and offered help.
She dyed her hair carefully, using Wella Color Touch dye with an oxidizing agent of 1.5%. It was wonderful for the hair, they became stronger, blyaschy, filled with energy. Only now I became light brown with red, and I didn’t like the red shade.
Then my daughter was born and it was problematic for me to visit my sister on the other end of the city. And I decided to look for a paint that would not seriously traumatize my hair and at the same time my light blond blond would turn out my favorite shade.
Selection of products for coloring
According to reviews on the Internet, my choice fell on a series for professional hair dye American brand CHI. It was dyed without ammonia and with a silk infusion that kept the hair from drying out during dyeing.
I have long chosen the desired color by trial and error. Dyeing CHI in Moscow costs about 10 thousand rubles, and therefore the first attempts at dyeing were independent and at home. Without due experience and a review of a head behind, hair turned out unevenly painted.
It upset me. Because for the next May holidays, I decided to paint at home with the help of a wizard. My daughter strongly opposed my absences, and I saw this option as the best for me, since the full staining procedure takes more than 3 hours.
Master hairdresser from a beauty salon
When the cute girl came from the salon, I immediately liked her and we started. I introduced her to the course of the coloring scheme:
- – First, Keratin Mist spray is sprayed, which evens the hair structure so that the coloring is more even.
- – Then paste is applied from the lightening powder, oxidizer and silk infusion on the hair roots and aged to the desired degree of clarification.
- – Hair wash shampoo.
- – Apply Color Lock conditioner to dried hair for 5 minutes to neutralize the alkaline agent.
- – Produced tinting hair dye CHI Ionic shade light blonde.
- – Flush paint.
- – Application of CHI Silk Infusion.
The master had already painted on the hair roots of half of the head, when she suddenly began to sniffle and blew her nose. I was already worried, and she commented on this as an adaptation to the climate of Russia, she was from Moldova and worked in the salon recently.
Such an irresponsible attitude towards clients at home made me angry, I already wanted to finish my work with my hair as soon as possible, thinking only about what my daughter might be ill.
As a result, I dyed my hair, slightly reducing it all the time, which made the shade lighter than I wanted. And my daughter and I fell ill with ARVI for all of May. Instead of kebabs, I celebrated my birthday with tea with honey, inhalations and a cheerful sniff of nose.
Everything that is not done is for the best.
Since then I have firmly decided that I will learn to paint myself. Having bought a mirror with a diameter of 30 cm, I hung it in the bathroom opposite the main one, prepared means for painting, put my phone with my favorite audio books up on the shelf, turned on one of them and started painting myself.
The most difficult thing for me was the careful careful separation of the hair into strands and stabbing them with invisible so as not to get confused. To make it easier to dye, I sometimes divided it into 2 parts and lightened hair roots one day, and toning on another day.
It has been almost 1.5 years, I have gained experience in the separation of hair, careful application of paint on the roots and the entire length of hair. The result I was completely satisfied. For the first time, thanks to this method of coloring, I was able to grow beautiful strong hair below the shoulder blades of the color I needed.
The boring hair dyeing has turned into a creative cognitive process for me, because I love reading and listening to books.
