Hair Update

I mentioned last week that I am trying to lighten my hair a bit and shared some inspiration pics with you. Its been a year since I had colored my hair due to pregnancy so my natural hair color has grown out about half way down and the black dye remains strong on the other half!  If you follow me on Instagram you saw that I was in the salon getting it done last week…

This was round two in the Salon. The first visit the top lightened perfectly but of course the black on the bottom didn’t lift as much as I had hoped. If any of you have had really dark or black hair you know how difficult it is to  get that color to lift without causing crazy damage. Im in no rush and don’t want to fry my hair so its going to be a gradual process. 

This pic is from last weekend and you can kind of see where I am going with the color!


Im happy with it but its still not 100% to where I want it, so thats the reason for the delay on showing it to you ladies! Its a bit more even now but still a work in progress but I promise to post pics when its completely done!

  1. If you go to Sally Beauty Supply and buy the Loreal Hilift for DARK HAIR ONLY, it will give you the exact color you want!!! I had very black hair and turned it into a very light red color with one application..they also have browns and blondes too and it works wonderfully.

  2. Oh my goodness Ava looks just like her daddy in this picture. Lightening dark hair is a process but once you get to the shade you want it's pretty easy to maintain. Your natural hair color totally suits you. I have naturally dark brown hair but it doesn't look good on me so I keep it light. I had super light hair as a child so I can pull it off.

  3. Getting rid of my black was tough! It definitely took a couple tries to fully remove it and get it to the color I like. And I love that pic of the 3 of you!!

  4. You are being smart in gradually doing it. I had to chop off my hair when I lightened it because the bottom half got really damaged. The second pic is too cute. Your daughter is delicious. That perfect little round head, oh how I miss my girls being that young. What is the blush color you wear in that second pic? I am always on the hunt for a pure peach blush but everything seems to turn into a pinkish color on me:(

  5. Love the family photo! I had the same problem as you a couple years ago, but didn't take the time to get the perfect color. My hair was just too tortured. You are doing the smart thing and taking your time to get the color you want. Are you getting a cut as well?

    1. thank you i know it is Mac saddle in the crease and Mac swiss chocolate in the outer corner. I will have to double check what the name of the one i used on the lid was. My makeup for my wedding was VERY similar to this look I'm wearing here as well.
