We ended up buying :
2 tubes of L Oreal 8N Light Neutral Blonde for her (it turns reddish brown in black hair, ive dyed my hair this color before)
2 tubes of Wella Light Ash Blonde 8N for myself (turns light brown on black hair, but half my hair has alrdy been dyed before so it wont take in color very well)
30 L Oreal Developer
Wella bleaching powder x2 (as she wanted highlights as well)
A plastic cup and brush for application
A highlighting cap
Anyways, we were so excited but at the same time very nervous.... Light Blonde on our hair... yes very scary lol.
We planned on taking before and after pictures and these are hers.
|Color she wants|
So the hair dying begins! 4 oz of the developer + 2 tubes of the 8N dye in a cup and mix it well. I applied it to her hair from midsection to bottom, waited a few minutes and hit the roots (this way, the roots wont turn lighter as it lifts color faster because its close to the scalp and the heat speeds it up) The application prolly took10 -15 mins and we left it off in her hair for 15-20. So we were so excited revealing her newwww hottttt hair color! She jumped on the tub like its a life saver and immediately washed her hair!
ehh... umm.... yeahhhh... not so much what we were expecting.... lol
I mean its not that bad... maybe...
The hair color was uneven, it was lighter on the roots dark brown by the ends. Her left side is also lighter than the right side... OOOOPPPSS! my fault. I felt really bad but i swear I did everything by the book though, and we sat for hours trying to figure out why it turned out that way and how to fix it.

Thankfully enough though, we didnt have time to do my hair today! And i can only imagine the horror it woulda been! My hair was previously dyed too so its a bit more complex to color than an untouched hair. Additionally, i chose a color lighter than what she did! I dodged a bullet there :P Im waiting a few more weeks till i get enough money to get mine professionally done lol.
