Dying My Roots Pink with Temporary Hair Dye

A0317A32-D92E-43CD-9D15-6562867959A4I don’t call myself the Chameleon Queen for nothing.

The name resided in my mind when I would constantly change my hair color, sorted or like a chameleon changing its color.

It has been a long while since I’ve put any fun colors in my hair, so I wanted to give it a try yet again.

I was thinking to my roots pink, but I did not want  I fully commit to it, just in case I wouldn’t like it

So this is when I decided to give the L’Oréal Colorista Temporary Spray another shot.  I picked up the Hot Pink shade so I can try the mastering technique of a colored Shadow Root….kidding about the mastering part.

8DB318D5-41A9-4A5C-A9D5-6DA309DACDF1The product is perfect for this trial as it is a wash out dye, so no commitment required.

 

I created a video on how I did this hair look, and after seeing the end results I feel I may want to go ahead and turn my roots pink! What do you guys think?

How To Maintain Icy Blonde Hair

E9133E3C-D62A-48AB-98DF-843334F75066Icy Blonde hair seems to be the look every one wants to achieve, but it definitely comes with a big price.

Coming from an asian ethnic with natural dark hair, going blonde is  Process.  It is quite costly, if you have naturally dark hair and want to achieve that Icy Blonde look, you have to expect to pay around $300 and up.

Mind you, you might have to go back for another session, because let’s face it, most likely you will not achieve what you want in one sitting.  Keep in mind that stylist charge their high fees not only to get the look you want , but also for their time and professional education.

People tell me all the time “I want your hair color” and I have to keep telling them that I did not achieve my blonde in one day, it took me many different sessions to get it as light as I have it, you need to have time and patience for a look like this, it is definitely not an easy task.

I personally have been going blonde for many years now, but what is different is that I do my own hair.  If you have been following me on my YouTube Channel, then you know that doing my own hair is what I am known for.

This is just a personal preference, but if you want to go blonde and you have never done your own hair, PLEASE DO TAKE SOME PRECAUTIONS, DO YOUR RESEARCH and don’t just jump into it.  Working with any kind of lightener is scary especially if you come at it totally blind sided.

So a suggestion for first time Blonde Wannabe’s, GO TO A PROFESSIONAL.

I am just very comfortable doing my own hair from past experiences, and I know what I like, and I know if and when my hair can handle it.

With That being said, let’s talk about how to maintain your blonde hair once you have achieved it.

PURPLE SHAMPOO

Keeping up with icy blonde hair is a major up keep, where you need to use the right products and the right shampoos so that the hair doesn’t turn into that dreadful brassy shade.

When talking shampoo, I am sure most of you know it’s PURPLE SHAMPOO.  

  • The purple in the purple shampoo work to color-correct warm tones in blonde hair, it helps to neutralize and hide the brassy tones in blonde hair.

There are many purple shampoos in the market, and the ones I have personally used were the Shimmer Lights shampoo, and the Temporary Color Care Ash Lathering Toner by Blonde Brilliance.

 

 

These shampoos work really well to counter act the brass, but I find that using the shimmer lights shampoo is very drying to my hair, as it contains sulfate.

What is Sulfate?

Sulfate is a specific chemical found in most shampoo’s, and its ingredients is what creates the foamy texture when you shampoo your hair.

  • With the frequent use of products containing Sulfate, it can effect your scalp and hair, resulting in the stripping away of natural proteins an oils.

 

Stay Away from Sulfate

As much as possible, I like to find a shampoo that is sulfate free, and does the work it says its does.  I can not afford to have bad hair in my life.

Hello to Fanola

So this is where Fanola No yellow Purple Shampoo comes in to Play.

60867ED5-A183-41C2-B860-02C0F09314C1.jpegI Have heard a lot of good stuff about the  Fanola No yellow purple Shampoo, and i wanted to put it to the test.  Luckily enough around the same time I was going to make a purchase of the No yellow Shampoo, I was contacted by the Brand saying that they wanted to send me some products.  I was so ecstatic  as the timing was perfect.

Fanola sent me a bunch of hair goodies, and among those was the Vegan no Yellow Purple Shampoo and the Vegan no yellow Purple Mask.

Some info about the Purple Shampoo

  • this vegan Shampoo neutralizes yellow reflections after bleaching the hair.  This Shampoo is formulated with intense violet pigments giving the hair a cool, bright, even reflection.
  • the shampoo contains no sulfate, silicones or parabens.

To use it, you can apply it to dry hair, as if you are toning it, and leave it on for a few minutes to take effect, and then wash your hair as you normally would.

Or you can use it in the shower on damp hair, massage it through the hair thoroughly, leave on for 2-5 minutes and rinse.  Note:  This product does stain the hands, so if you can, wear gloves.

If you bleach your hair to a level 8-10 (or pale yellow like the inside of a banana peel) you can use the shampoo and mask as a replacement of a toner, and you will get some great results.

Staying Loyal To Fanola

After using The Fanola No yellow Purple Shampoo, I think it is safe to say that I will not be using any other purple shampoo, this stuff is literally magic for blonde hair.

Do you want savings?

If you are blonde, or thinking about going blonde, I highly recommend trying the Fanola No Yellow purple Shampoo and Mask, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.  You can check out their line Here, and if you use my discount code Sharee10 at the checkout, you will receive 10% off of your first purchase.

E7A7C6A5-B517-43AC-9027-583CB59CA8DB.jpeg

Recently the Parade of Homes started in our city, and my family and I decided to have a look into these wonderful homes.

Parade of Homes is a show case of new homes held annually in several regions.

We have no intentions of buying a new home, as our current house is still fairly brand new.  We just wanted to take a look at the beautiful show case of homes…no harm in that.

358799E4-EB6A-442A-B37B-B10E47E9435E.jpeg

These homes gave me all the feels with walking in and having instantly been hit with the smell of a newly built house… brought back so much memories.

B1A0551C-506F-4FA9-BF26-2982BA309035I have to admit, looking at these homes made us all feel like building a brand new house, it is just so Inspiring with all the gorgeous interior designs.  Makes me question myself why I can’t design my house to look this good.

FC2E29CC-7D11-4DD0-886A-70B9B7260F83.jpegAt the end of it all, we were all just grateful that we have a place where we call HOME.  Although there is no harm in looking at other homes,  sometimes it makes us want more than what we have, but we came to realize that we were here for inspiration, that’s all it is…Inspiration.

8AA249E5-C35D-490E-9B62-5F3ED275A3C1.jpegNow we must all go home and Hug our Home and just be thankful for what we have.

DOLLAR STORE HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE A MUST TRY!!

I was shopping at my local a Dollarama store when I came across some hair extensions. I didn’t think much of it at the time, so I ignored it and walked away.

So on my next Dollarama visit I convinced myself to buy it and just test it out. I have to say that it was the best decision I made.

This was the hair piece that I bought, and I believe it was only $4. It was a ponytail extension, but in fishtail form. I ended up buying 2 boxes just incase I really like it.

The store only had brown coloured hair pieces, but I figured I’d make it work regardless. As I was walking around the mall, a light bulb went off in my head.

I Instantly had a solution to make the extensions match my hair. Mind you..my actual hair color is a silvery grey color, which will definitely not match the hair piece. So I made my way over to Shoppers drug mart, where I was looking for a particular spray.

This Spray is a root touch up spray, meant to cover up grey hairs, but I thought it could work to turn my hair brown. And guys..work it did!!

This is what the hair piece looked like when I put it on, clearly you can see how it does not match. The braid itself is pretty cute, but somehow..it didn’t really do anything for me.

So I had another bright idea!! I decided to remove the braids and see what the hair looks like.

Guys…I was so SHOOK!!

The hair was so beautiful, long and so full!! I was amazed beyond belief how this dollar store extension could look this good! I literally felt like I won!!!

Arianna who????

Since I bought 2 boxes, I decided to remove be braids off of the other one and use both on my hair for some added volume.

I’m dead!!! Look how freakin good that looks! And look how well my real hair blends with the brown extensions.

You would not know I was wearing fake hair, let alone a Dollarama purchase.!!

If you have a Dollarama store near you, go to it right away and look for these Revlon fishtail braids extensions, you will not be disappointed!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir

When I was a teeny little tot, my mom would cut my eyelashes in hopes that they would grow back longer.

Not too sure if this trick is true, but I don’t think it worked for me because my lashes are still short.

So I have always been on the hunt for a good mascara that could lengthen my lashes and make it appear fuller.

Although I’ve come across some good ones there still wasn’t the ONE that I stuck with.

Recently I was sent the Marc Jacobs velvet Noir primer voxbox from Influenster, where I received the Velvet Noir primer and the Velvet Noir mascara.

I was instantly intrigued with the packaging of the tube, I would say that it is aesthetically pleasing.

So I put the mascara and primer to the test.

This is my lashes with nothing on it, pure nakedness.

Here it is with the primer, who needs mascara this is the new fashion statement here LOL.

Kidding……

and here are my lashes with the mascara on I have to say that it does it’s job.

In all honesty, it does the work just like any other mascara I’ve tried. Although I do like the Mark Jacobs mascara, I don’t think I’ll purchase it.

The price for the mascara and primer retail for $26 each.

I did give my lashes a bit of a curl before applying any of the product on, giving the illusion of longer lashes.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still continue to use it until it is dried up, but that’s how far I’ll go.
